Canon MVX2i Digital Video Camera: Two in one


Canon's MVX2i digital camera doubles as both a digital still camera and a mini digital video recorder. See how it stacks up in our Australian review.

Jan, 2003

Product Specifications

The Canon MVX2i is a powerful yet compact video camcorder. Thanks to the advanced rotating grip belt, it is easy to hold and easy to use. The MVX2i contains Super Night Mode technology so you can capture color images in the dark of night. The camcorder's Super Night LED also fills out shadows and brings extra clarity to nighttime images. It can reduce red-eye when shooting still images with the auto-flash. With the push of a button, the MVX2i turns into a high-quality still digital camera providing sharp images on an SD card. Its built-in, automatic pop-up flash works simultaneously with the continuous-shooting function. The MVX2i has a 10x optical zoom supplemented by a 200x digital zoom. Its Optical Image Stabilizer takes the jitter out of hand-held movie making and still images to provide smooth video images and clear still images. Thanks to its USB and IEEE 1394 (FireWire) interface, the camcorder can connect to just about any Mac OS or Windows computer and transfer movie images from the Mini DV tape to the PC. However, the user does not need a computer to print pictures. The camcorder connects directly to the Canon CP10, CP100, or Bubble Jet Direct printers.
