Manufacturer's Description

The Height of DVD Performance
The name Canon has always meant photographic and broadcast television lenses with optical excellence, as well as advanced image processing, and superb performance. And Canon digital video camcorders are no exception.

In fact, Canon digital camcorders include a family of sophisticated and powerful DVD camcorders. With this innovative line, you experience all the image quality, convenience and compatibility of DVD technology in sleekly designed camcorders.

The DC50 is at the top of Canon’s impressive line of DVD camcorders with the performance of a 5.39 Megapixel CCD image sensor — outstanding video quality and 5 Megapixel digital photographs. You get an array of advanced features including Super-Range Optical Image Stabilization, Dual Layer recording capability and Canon’s exclusive next-generation DIGIC DV II for uncompromised video and still image processing. The DC50 is also easy to use, with the Joystick exposure control, Quick Start, and Horizontal Marker — all in a stylish and easy-to-use design.

The DC50 digital camcorder lets you record directly to DVDs, and lets you shoot and share video through a variety of options. Only 3" (8cm) in diameter, the DC50’s DVD-R/-RW discs are compatible with most DVD players and can store up to 30 minutes of video in standard mode and 60 minutes of video in long play mode. They also record to DVD-R DL (dual layer) discs that can store up to 108 minutes of video.

With the DC50’s DVD technology, you no longer have to worry about mistakenly taping over a once-in-a-lifetime piece of footage. Simply shoot, and the DC50 ensures that you record onto a blank part of the DVD.

Random Access and Easy EditingThe DC50’s DVD functionality also makes it possible for you to review your footage quickly and easily without the bother of rewind or fast-forward searching. With the camcorder’s Visual Index, you can review your footage at a glance and play the selection you want. You can even select shots and arrange them in a playlist. It’s like editing your video right in your camcorder!

What’s more, the finalization process for these DVDs is quick and easy with the DC50. It’s just one more reason why you’ll love recording direct to DVD with your DC50.
