Genuine Canon Optics: 11X Optical Zoom/220X Digital Zoom
Canon Genuine Optics are unparalleled in the industry. The same Canon experience and expertise that goes into precision lenses for 35 mm and broadcast TV cameras goes into every camcorder lens we manufacture. At Canon, we never compromise. The result is a lens with superb definition and exceptional contrast.

The powerful 11X optical zoom lets you capture your subject with razor-sharp detail even from a distance. The powerful 220X digital zoom takes you even closer, revealing details too small to see with the naked eye.

The 11X optical zoom gives you the same range of focal lengths as a 43.7-489 mm lens on a 35 mm still camera. Add an optional Wide Converter WD-H46 (Item Code: 9032A001) and you get the same wide view you'd get with a 30.6 mm lens on a 35 mm still camera. Add the Tele Converter TL-H46 (Item Code: 9033A001) and you have the same magnification power of a 733.5 mm telephoto lens on a 35 mm still camera.

And that's not the end of the Optura Xi's optical versatility. When capturing digital photos to the memory card, the lens becomes a 9X zoom, the equivalent of a 42.4 - 383 mm lens on a 35 mm photo camera.

2.0 Megapixel CCD
To deliver superior video and photo quality, the Optura Xi uses a powerful 2.0 Megapixel CCD. Combined with Genuine Canon Optics and Canon's Optical Image Stabilizer, the camcorder captures images with outstanding clarity.
