Shoot, process, and share images as never before
Enjoy stunning, life-like videos and photos with your Canon Megapixel camcorder thanks to DV Photo Plus. A combination of four advanced Canon technologies, DV Photo Plus gives superior clarity and brilliant color to every shot you take.

Get the full picture on your wide-screen TV
Unlike camcorders which only record a vertically stretched picture, the Optura 40 features a High-Resolution 16:9 Mode that records video in true 16:9 ("letterbox") format for playback on wide-screen TVs. When shooting in the 16:9 Mode, the entire width of the 2.2 Megapixel CCD image sensor is used to capture your footage. The result is wide-screen quality videos that are certain to impress even the biggest "big screen" fan.

Effortlessly print and share your images
Part of Canon's DV Photo Plus advantage, the Optura 30 and Optura 40 can connect directly to any Canon CP-series Photo Printer or Canon Bubble Jet Direct Printer... without the need of a computer! Simply use the supplied USB cable to connect your camcorder with the printer and, in an instant, the Optura's Print & Share button will light up blue letting you know that you can begin printing simply by pressing it once.

For added control, the Horizontal & Vertical Trimming Function, Photo Review Function and other still image features allow you to make your edits directly in the camcorder, resulting in the perfect print every time. You can also connect directly to other PictBridge compatible printers, and because the camcorder tags each photo you take with information based on Exif 2.2 Print standards, poor lighting and mistakes can be corrected automatically by the printer.

Print & Share is one of the ways Canon's DV Photo Plus brings you quality images. Our experience is the key to delivering your memories just the way you remember them.
