Canon ZR300 MiniDV Camcorder Features
The ZR300 camcorder can record high-resolution 16:9 video. Unlike camcorders which only record a vertically stretched picture, Canon’s ZR300 uses the full width of the CCD, filling the entire screen with crisp, high-quality images. For added convenience, the LCD screen shows the image in letterbox style, so you know exactly how your image will appear on TV. The ZR300 22x optical zoom lens delivers superb definition and contrast, taking full advantage of the DV format. The camcorder has a 440x digital zoom, extending the camcorder’s magnification, which reveals details too small to see with the naked eye. The high quality image stabilization system corrects camera shake instantly, giving you smooth, stable pictures. It enables you to record shake-free images, even on long telephoto shots without a tripod.

Now you don’t have to miss out on capturing the perfect photo while shooting the perfect video. That’s because the ZR300 has the ability to take high-resolution XGA quality (1024 x 768 pixel) digital photos onto a memory card while recording video. The secret behind Canon’s renowned video and photo image quality is the DIGIC DV system. DIGIC DV utilizes two different color techniques to maximize video quality for viewing on TVs and still image quality for print or computer display.
