You want your memories to last forever--that's why you've taken the time to shoot them. And you want to shoot in widescreen format to get everything you can out of your new widescreen TV or home theater system.
Warranty : 90day
So, why is the way you record widescreen images so important? Because you want an image made for widescreen, not adapted for widescreen. Because every HD television is widescreen--widescreen is the future.
The story of how we do it may be a bit technical, but the result is clear to see. Canon camcorders use the entire width of the image sensor to capture video in true 16:9 format. What difference does this make? It's simple. With more pixels captured, you get better image quality. Other camcorders force the wider picture into a smaller space on the sensor--giving you a less true image, with fewer pixels and lower quality. With a Canon camcorder, your videos of your travels will let you relive great memories.
In addition, the viewfinder on your Elura 100 will display the image in a letterbox view. From side to side and top to bottom, what you see is what you get. Or, you can view your widescreen shot in the Elura 100's large, 2.7-inch LCD screen. Either way, there isn't the guessing or extra work in looking at an image that's distorted like a funhouse mirror.
To make it even easier, a widescreen button lets you switch from standard 4:3 to 16:9 widescreen HR at the touch of your finger. You can also use the widescreen feature with the camcorder's advanced image stabilization. All of the Eluras let you shoot as wide as your widescreen TV. Why shouldn't your camcorder shoot as wide as your widescreen TV? It should--and our competitors can't match the widescreen you get from your Canon Elura 100.
Remember--widescreen is the future. And Canon's widescreen HR is true widescreen that's picture perfect.
Because of genuine Canon optics, the name Canon is synonymous with unsurpassed optical performance. Brilliant optical quality is part of every Canon broadcast TV camera, 35mm film camera, and camcorder--and the Elura 100 is no exception.
The Elura 100's lens is precisely matched to the camcorder's CCD and features a unique spectral coating that reduces flare and ghosting. The lens is a powerful 20x optical zoom. Combined with the camcorder's powerful 800x digital zoom, the Elura 100 gives you an impressive range of focal lengths (3.0-60mm). You always have the perfect lens, whether you're trying to capture a wide shot of the lake, a group shot at your daughter's wedding, or a telephoto shot at your child's recital.
Canon's Advanced Image Stabilization is another reason you get unsurpassed optical performance from your Elura 100. Shoot fast action like sporting events, or your child's birthday party, or the view from your boat. Image stabilization corrects camera shake instantly and makes all your video memories a joy to watch.
At the heart of the Elura 100 is a powerful 1.33-megapixel CCD that delivers sharp and vibrant images. The performance of the CCD is combined with Canon's exclusive DIGIC DV signal processing circuit to give you both vivid video and brilliant digital photography. Because video and still images have different color requirements, the Elura 100's DIGIC DV circuit processes the two signals differently. The result is video maximized for viewing on monitors or with video projection. DIGIC DV is just part of Canon's DoubleShot technology that gives you the best of both video and digital photography.
Level Shot Control
The Elura 100 Level Shot feature gives you horizontal and center markers in your viewfinder to help keep your camcorder level and your subject centered. For perfect shots, simply turn on Level Shot and make the horizon parallel to the horizontal marker in the viewfinder. For perfectly composed shots, use the center marker to place your subject in the center of the frame.
Smooth Zoom Control
Not only do you get a wide zoom range with the Elura 100, you can also get Smooth Zoom Control. Simply select from 3 pre-set zoom speeds and Smooth Zoom does the zooming for you--giving you steady, professional-looking zoom shots every time.
Mega Video Light
Twin LEDs take over when the light gets low, so you can keep on shooting.
