Product Specifications

The MV600i gives you all the benefits of digital filming and still images in an easy to use package. High image quality combined with the versatility only digital technology can offer make this affordable camcorder irresistible. The lens technology, which Canon has been developing for 60 years means that whether you're recording videos or shooting VGA still images, all 800, 000 pixels will make every image startlingly clear. With the extensive features and accessory range of the MV600i, you'll have no excuse for missing the perfect filming opportunity. The Night Mode lets you film in low light conditions. Everything you record with the MV600i is routed to the appropriate storage media with the best possible results. For instance, videos are sent on the optimum route to miniDV tapes. The MV600i comes complete with DV Messenger software, a service you can use in conjunction with Windows Messenger available on Microsoft Windows XP. DV Messenger enables you to exchange files and have live conversations using your camcorders as webcams.
