Say Goodbye to Unsteady, Out of Focus Images
In the Optura 60, Canon utilizes the finest method of image stabilization available: optical. Canon's lens design includes a dedicated optical element which shifts up and down and side to side based on motion, so your video always looks smooth, steady, and natural. Whether you are shooting handheld at telephoto or from a moving vehicle, Canon's Optical Image Stabilizer effectively handles unwanted vibration. And since it's optical, there is no loss of image quality -- inevitable with electronic image stabilizers.

Optical Image Stabilization is even effective in photo mode, allowing your digital photos to be as crisp as possible.

2.2 Megapixel Performance
One of the reasons the Optura 60 delivers stunningly vivid and sharp video and still (1632 X 1224) images is the 2.2 Megapixel CCD -- one of the DV Photo Plus technologies that ensure outstanding results. In the Optura 60, this performance is combined with Canon's advanced RGB Primary Color Filter. Other camcorders process color using a standard CMYG filter, resulting in duller colors. Canon's RGB filter separates light into its red, green and blue components, resulting in professional-quality images with natural-looking tones and vivid hues.

Together, the 2.2 Megapixel CCD and RGB color filter deliver uncompromisingly brilliant results.
