Singapore, 10 April 2008 – Consumers can now discover the benefits of home
movie making with the launch of a new range of DVD camcorders. Featuring Canon’s
new advanced zoom system, the DC330, DC320 and DC310 DVD camcorders will allow
users to record life’s memorable moments with high-quality video for convenient
viewing.

“The new DC camcorder series will raise the bar for standard DVD-based
camcorders and will take camcorders to another level of performance.” says
Andrew Koh, Director and General Manager of the Consumer Imaging and Information
Division at Canon Singapore. “These new camcorders will bring more value to our
current product line and reinforces our commitment to offering the highest
quality imaging to every consumer.”

Magnificent magnification
The new range of DVD camcorders feature a new advanced zoom feature for shooting
movies, and offers the highest magnification power for consumer camcorders.

This new technology achieves a higher zoom magnification than optical zoom
functions and is achieved by the concurrent use of the optical zoom and digital
zoom, enhanced by a larger number of effective pixels.

The DC330 and DC320 camcorders feature a 45x advanced zoom whilst the DC310
features a 41x advanced zoom; thereby allowing users to rely on these camcorders
to zoom into close up shots even from a distance.

All three camcorder models offer a 37x optical zoom with electronic image
stabilization that helps to keep footage steady, even when the advanced zoom
feature is engaged.

Capturing all the details
The new camcorders all offer true wide high resolution 16:9 recording which is
ideal for playback on widescreen television. The camcorders incorporate a
widescreen 2.7” LCD that will allow for previewing movies in the correct
dimensions and a widescreen electronic view finder, allowing users to save on
battery power when framing their shots during recording.

At the core of the new DVD camcorder series is Canon’s proprietary DIGIC DV II
processor that was originally designed to handle the increased data rate of high
resolution footage. With built-in advanced noise reduction technology, DIGIC DV
II captures images that are sharper and reproduces colours that are true to
life.

Value added features
A convenient switch is located on the side of the camcorder, allowing novice
users to start shooting immediately. The camcorder automatically finds the first
blank space on the DVD and cuts out the need for fast forwarding or rewinding.
Selecting and operating shooting features and functions are equally easy, using
the intuitive joystick controller.

To locate a particular scene for playback, users can simply browse through
thumbnails on the LCD screen. Finalized DVDs can be played back using a standard
DVD player.

In addition, there is also no need to carry an extra video light as the 2.7-inch
LCD screen offers enough illumination to act as a secondary video light.

When shooting in a dim or low light environment, users can simply flip over the
LCD screen to light up a scene; giving a brighter look too scenes shot under low
light conditions.

DVD advantages
With the high resolution 16:9 recording solution and the camcorders’ unique 1.07
megapixel sensor, users can quickly shoot cinematic high-quality movies that can
immediately be converted for playback on any DVD player.

With the Canon DC330 camcorder, the recorded video is easily transferred to a
computer for post-processing using the bundled software.

For those who desire the convenience of shooting still photographs, the DC330
and DC320 camcorders shot and store 1.07 megapixel images on SD Cards, whilst
the DC310 camcorder shoots digital photographs at 800k megapixel resolution.

Pricing and availability
The Canon DC330/DC320/DC310 camcorders are now available at all Canon authorized
dealers at the recommended retail price of S$ 899 / S$ 799/ S$ 699 respectively
