Canon ZR20 Digital Camcorder

Capturing your memories in stunning digital video has never been easier with the ZR series camcorders. Canon's ZR20 puts the power of digital video into your hands, letting you record images and sound of exceptional quality, whether you're a seasoned movie-maker or an enthusiastic beginner.

The ZR20 digital camcorder makes the power of digital video both easy-to-use and truly affordable for home use. Capture a baby's first steps, record sporting events, or make your own movies - all with a professional polish formerly reserved for equipment many times the price.

Sleek and compact, the ZR series camcorders are comfortable to hold and small enough to slip into virtually any pocket. But don't let the size fool you: these camcorders contain an array of powerful features, including a flexible LCD view screen that folds into the camcorder's body, an optical and a digital zoom for dramatic close-ups, and an image stabilization system for shake-free video even without a tripod. Each ZR series camcorder connects easily to a DV-ready personal computer for editing, or to your TV for the joy of sharing memories and experiences. And when you're not shooting video, use the ZR like a camera to capture still images.


Image Stabilizer
A football cutting through the chilly autumn air. A plane shooting overhead. A runner crossing the finish line. These are images you don't want to record in a shaky, jagged manner. And you don't always have a tripod handy. That's why the ZR20 has a high-quality image stabilization system that corrects camera shake instantly. Even on long telephoto shots there's no shake, no wobble, and no need for a tripod. When you show your video, let them think you're a pro.

A Genuine Canon 10X Zoom Lens with 200X Digital Zoom
Sometimes the greatest discoveries in life are waiting to be found; all you need is a little help. Well, the ZR20 gives you a lot of help. Its 10x Optical Zoom Lens can reveal detail on distant, faint objects, and in addition, the 200x Digital Zoom Lens makes those objects appear like they're sitting right in front of you. The scope from wide panorama to super telephoto will leave you breathless, and full of ideas and options.

Manual Controls
As you learn more about your ZR20, it gives you room to grow. If you choose, you can set your own focus, shutter speed and white balance. You can even control how dark or light it sets the auto exposure level by using the AE Shift.
