Powerful Advanced Zoom
Canon’s 45x Advanced Zoom combines genuine Canon optics with unique DIGIC DV processing – capture more detail than ever before. An Electronic Image Stabilizer (EIS) helps eliminate camera shake and keeps movies looking smooth.

Megapixel capture
Enjoy the benefits of high resolution Megapixel recording for superior quality video images.

True widescreen
Record stunning, panoramic widescreen footage in true 16:9 format, ideally suited for playback on a widescreen TV. Use the 2.7" widescreen LCD to monitor video footage in the correct dimensions during recording, or opt to shoot using the wide colour EVF (Electronic Viewfinder) to conserve battery power.

Quick Start
Canon’s unique Quick Start technology powers up the MD235 almost instantly from Standby mode – a perfect way to ensure that you never miss those once in a lifetime moments, such as a child’s first steps.

Hear more clearly
Attach an external microphone to the camcorder via the microphone input connection to capture superior quality audio – an ideal way to shoot in situations where there is substantial background noise.

Versatile and easy
A handy joystick controller, located on the frame of the LCD screen, makes controlling the camcorder easy. More sophisticated moviemaking features are accessed by navigating on-screen menus.

DIGIC DV
Make movies that look just like real life. Thanks to the processing power of DIGIC DV colours appear fresh and bright.

Multiangle remote control
A multiangle remote control gives you the freedom to experiment. Since the remote sensor is positioned on the fold out LCD screen, you can operate the camcorder from virtually any position – simply angle the screen towards you to gain full remote control.

LCD video light
The MD235’s 2.7” LCD screen also doubles as a handy video light. When positioned to face forward, it provides enough illumination to render close-up subjects visible even in dimly-lit situations.

Easy does it
With a one-push Easy mode, the MD235 is ready for shooting straight out of the box – perfect for beginners. A full range of Program AE modes let you take more control as your skills grow.
