Canon's new DC40 DVD camcorder has a slim design, 10x optical zoom lens, 4.3-megapixel CCD image sensor and high-resolution 16:9 recording for widescreen video.The 2.7-inch display panel makes it easy to compose shots in cinema style. It also doubles as a digital camera, recording photos onto Mini-SD cards.

Canon has incorporated an array of features in the DC40 camcorder, including Smooth Zoom and Level Shot Control features, a built-in lens cover that automatically opens in record mode and closes when switched to playback or off, red-eye reduction, a built-in flash and a built-in Ultra Video Light for low-light conditions, an RGB primary color filter and a Digic DV image processor. Because the DC40 model records directly to 3-inch DVD-R/RW discs, consumers can watch their movies on their DVD players. They can easily locate scenes and create lists of favorite scenes right in the camcorder. Making copies of DVD home movies is easy with the One-Touch Dubbing feature.

The camcorder comes with software for editing video and photos on a PC or making copies to share with family and friends. The same software allows users to create DVD copies of original home movies easily and is compatible with most Windows operating systems. The Canon DC40 DVD camcorder has an estimated selling price of $899.
