Around the world, the name Canon means optical excellence, advanced image processing and superb performance. And Canon digital video camcorders are no exception.

If your choice of recording media is DVD, you'll find a family of capable and technologically sophisticated DVD camcorders built with the Canon know how which you've come to expect in all our products.

Affordable, sleek and easy-to-operate, the Canon DC320 gives you the convenience of DVD technology, along with our exclusive Canon 48x Advanced Zoom- a feature only possible with our industry-leading optical technology. It also boasts our advanced DIGIC DV II image processor, a 1.07 Megapixel CCD, SD card image storage capability, Quick Start and Joystick Control. Add to that the long recording time available thanks to its high capacity battery and low power consumption and you'll see that the DC320 makes it simpler than ever to capture and share all the unforgettable moments of your life.



Canon Exclusive- Genuine Canon 48x Advanced Zoom
The Canon 48x Advanced Zoom on the DC320 is just the kind of exclusive Canon feature you've come to expect from the leader in imaging and optics. Advanced Zoom extends the power of your zoom and is the longest zoom Canon has ever offered. In both wide angle and telephoto positions, there is virtually no loss in image quality throughout the range. How is this accomplished? With a Genuine Canon lens which remains in constant motion through the entire extended zoom range aided by our proprietary DIGIC DV II image processor.

The DC320 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 DC310'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.

Canon Exclusive- DIGIC DV II
The Canon DIGIC DV II Image Processor is the next generation of Canon's exclusive DIGIC DV signal processing technology. Because video and still images have different color requirements, DIGIC DV II digital signal processing ensures the best image quality for both by specifically optimizing the settings for video and stills. Thanks to DIGIC DV ll image processing, the DC320 produces video with improved color reproduction -- especially in skin tones, and dark and light scenes. It also uses a hybrid noise reduction system that employs two types of noise reduction -- for images that are crystal clear.

Brilliant Video
The DC320 records true High Resolution Widescreen for picture perfect video. Canon's Widescreen HR Mode uses the entire width of the image sensor, capturing true 16:9 widescreen. What difference does it make? It's simple. The more pixels which are captured, the better your final image quality is.

Megapixel Performance
With the DC320, you get a 1.07 Megapixel CCD image sensor with a color correction filter. Your video will be sharper, clearer and more true to life, as will your photos. Every sunset on the beach will be more dramatic with every color in the sky faithfully captured. The joy on the face of a child scoring her first goal on the soccer field is recorded just as you saw it.

Compact Size and Convenience
All of the convenience of recording onto DVD is found in the DC320s slim, lightweight, gracefully designed body. It's compact- only 2.6" wide x 3.5" high x 5" deep (not including grip belt) and weighs just under a pound, making it easy to take the DC320 with you wherever you go. Quick Start
With Quick Start, you'll never miss a shot again as you rush to turn your camcorder on and start recording. With this feature, you simply push the Quick Start button to put your DC320 in stand-by mode. Then, with your camcorder in stand-by mode, you can simply push it again and the DC320 begins to record in less than a second. With Quick Start, it's easy to capture the spontaneous and surprising moments that happen in your life. It also saves battery power so you get more recording between charges.
