Canon ZR30MC Digital Camcorder

Capturing your memories in stunning digital video has never been easier with the ZR series camcorders. Canon's ZR30MC 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 ZR30MC digital camcorder gives you easy-to-use flexibility for digital video and still photography, while remaining truly affordable for home use. You can capture family gatherings, record community events, or make your own movie--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 ZR30MC 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 ZR30MC 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.

MultiMediaCard and SD Memory Card compatible
No larger than postage stamps, MultiMediaCards and SD Memory Cards offer you a whole new way to capture, store, and transfer still images. Just slip a card into your camera's MC slot, and fire away.

The ZR30MC expands video possibilities by using a MultiMediaCard or a SD (Secure Digital) Memory Card in addition to a Mini DV cassette. These ultra-small and ultra-light media record, store and manage still images, as well as allow easy transfer of still images to a PC. Copy still images from a videocassette to a memory card, and vice versa. Produce effects not possible with just a cassette using one of the three types of Card Mix Effects.

Choose one of the sample images provided on the supplied MultiMediaCard such as a picture frame or crashing waves and combine it with the live camcorder images.
