Canon MD255 Mini DV 1.07 MP CCD Black,Silver:
The official marketing text of Canon MD255 Mini DV 1.07 MP CCD Black,Silver as supplied by the manufacturer

A True Widescreen Megapixel camcorder that offers both video and photo capture. Canon 45x Advanced Zoom lets you get closer to the action. DIGIC DV ensures recorded colours are natural and lifelike.

Canon Advanced Zoom
Getting closer to the action is easy with a Canon 45x Advanced Zoom – the quality of genuine Canon optics and the power of DIGIC DV processing bring even distant subjects near. An Electronic Image Stabilizer (EIS) helps eliminate camera shake and keeps movies looking smooth.

Megapixel video
A Megapixel CCD allows you to capture high quality video that appears crisp and clear on the screen.

Wide life
Record stunning, panoramic widescreen movies in true 16:9. You can even monitor your video footage the way it appears on a widescreen TV via the 2.7" 16:9 LCD. To conserve battery power, use the wide colour EVF (Electronic Viewfinder) instead.

Spontaneous shooting
Thanks to Quick Start technology, the MD255 can be powered up in around one second – ensuring that you’ll never miss the moment again.

Versatile and easy
With a one-push Easy mode, even total novices can use the MD255 to shoot great-looking footage. A handy joystick controller, located on the frame of the LCD, provides easy access to more sophisticated moviemaking features. The multiangle remote control gives you even greater shooting freedom: with a remote sensor positioned on the camcorder’s fold out LCD screen, simply angle the screen towards you to shoot from virtually any location.

With the unique processing power of DIGIC DV, capture movies that are defined by vivid and vibrant colours – see more of real life. DIGIC DV uses sophisticated split path processing to optimise colours for photos and videos separately, achieving the very best results.

LCD Video Light
The MD255 lets you use the 2.7” LCD screen as a handy video light. When turned to face your shooting subject, it provides enough illumination to let you record close-up in poorly-lit situations.

Advanced photo features
Shoot high quality still images straight to SD or SDHC (High Capacity) memory cards – the easiest way to share photos. Alternatively, print directly to a PictBridge compatible printer.

USB 2.0 Full Speed
Via a USB 2.0 connection, photos can be transferred to a PC for editing or viewing in a matter of seconds.

Software Solution Disk
Still images are easily transferred, then managed on a computer using supplied software.

Image sensor
Total megapixels *
A megapixel (MP or Mpx) is one million pixels, and is a term used not only for the number of pixels in an image, but also to express the number of image sensor elements of digital cameras or the number of display elements of digital displays. For example, a camera that makes a 2048 × 1536 pixel image typically uses a few extra rows and columns of sensor elements and is commonly said to have "3.2 megapixels" or "3.4 megapixels", depending on whether the number reported is the "effective" or the "total" pixel count (as opposed to the 2048 × 1536 = 3,145,728 finished image pixels).
1.07 MP
Sensor type *
A sensor is a convertor than measures a physical quality (light, temperature etc.) and displays this electronically on a device.
Optical sensor size *
Optical sensors are electronic detectors that convert light, or a change in light, into an electronic signal. They are used in many industrial and consumer applications e.g. lamps that turn on automatically in response to darkness. Optical sensors come in many sizes.
25.4 / 6 mm (1 / 6")
Lens system
Optical zoom *
Indicates the optical zoom capacity, which is the number of times that the picture can be enlarged with the optics of the camera.
Digital zoom *
Indicates the digital zoom capacity, the number of times that the picture is enlarged thanks to digital technology.
Image stabilizer *
This camera function compensates for slight shaking movements caused by an unstable position and ensures smooth footage even in suboptimal conditions.
Focal length range (f-f)
Measure of how strongly the system converges or diverges light. For an optical system in air, it is the distance over which initially collimated rays are brought to a focus. A system with a shorter focal length has greater optical power than one with a long focal length; that is, it bends the rays more strongly, bringing them to a focus in a shorter distance.For an optical system in air, the effective focal length (f and f′) gives the distance from the front and rear principal planes (H and H′) to the corresponding focal points (F and F′).
2.6 - 96.2 mm
Focal length (35mm film equivalent)
41.7 - 1877 mm
Camcorder tape type *
The type of tape used to record images from a camcorder, e.g. VHS, Video8.

En familjekamera ska vara bra och stabil och ligga tryggt mellan händerna. Det är nästan det viktigaste. En videokamera kan ha hög upplösning och ett objektiv i toppklass, men om det inte går att hålla den still blir inspelningarna skakiga, vilket gör...
