When you own an Elura 90 digital camcorder, you also get the benefit of Canon's world-renowned technical expertise in photography and broadcast television. Shoot with the confidence Canon's superior optics and image-processing power provide.
Capture Life In All Its Brilliant Color And Clarity
Preserve every hue of a summer sunset or backyard garden thanks to the Elura 90's 1.33 Megapixel Image Sensor. The product of Canon ingenuity and technological expertise, the image sensor achieves high-resolution results whether recording video to DV tape or still images onto a memory card. Photos can be captured at a variety of different image qualities and compression sizes (Superfine/Fine/Normal) giving you the ability to balance quantity with quality.
Get It All In With True Widescreen Recording
Treat your family and friends to high-resolution 16:9 widescreen videos that are perfect on a wide-screen home theatre system. Unlike some camcorders that record a vertically stretched picture, the Elura 90 uses the full width of its Mega Pixel CCD. The result is a wide-screen picture that has superior quality and shows more of the action happening at either end of the screen.
Single-Handedly Take Photos And Videos
The Elura 90 is a sophisticated two-in-one device that lets you take outstanding digital videos and photos. Capture e-mail ready (640 x 480) photos to the memory card at the press of a button or record high-quality video to the tape. You won't miss a minute of the memories you want to capture.
See Farther With Optical And Digital Zooms
The Elura 90 gives you the ability to zoom in on hard to see details with its 20x Optical Zoom/400x Digital Zoom lens. The result of Canon's vast expertise in designing and crafting precision lenses for 35mm and broadcast TV cameras, the optical/digital zoom delivers superior imagery with vibrant color and clarity.
Share Your Memories With Friends And Family
The Elura-series camcorders take advantage of the MiniDV format (a worldwide industry standard) for effortless transfer, edit and sharing of your memories... without any loss in quality.
Keep It Simple With Direct Print Features
The first camcorders to offer a Print/Share button, the Elura series makes direct printing and downloading images to a computer a quick, easy and enjoyable task. When the Elura 90 is connected to a printer, the Print/Share button lights up blue, letting you know that you can begin printing simply by pressing it once. You can also transfer a photo directly to your computer, with just a single press of the button.
Connect The Elura 90 To Your Computer, TV, VCR
Update your favorite analog memories to digital with the Elura 90's Analog/Digital Converter. The converter translates an analog signal into a digital signal for direct transfer to digital video devices or computers equipped with an IEEE1394 terminal*. Your Elura camcorder can also act as a translator between your analog device and another digital device.
* The Analog/Digital Converter may not function depending on the software used.
Light up the night with vibrant videos
The Elura 90 features a variety of light-enhancing features so you can keep shooting long after the sun goes down.
Catch All The Action Without The Shake
Shoot videos that look smooth, steady and natural... even when shooting hand-held at full telephoto. Working behind the scenes is Canon's high quality Image Stabilization system, which is able to correct camcorder shake instantly.
When shooting outdoors, the Elura 90's bright 2.5" LCD view screen features an LCD Backlight button that boosts the displays brightness by 250%. Now it's easier than ever to compose sensational shots without having to squint into the viewfinder. You can also rotate the screen for high-or low-angle shots, or turn it around 180 to record yourself. When you're done shooting, the screen is perfect for reviewing your scenes.
Snap Hi-Res Photos Like A Pro
When you don't want to miss a single moment, use the Elura's Continuous Shooting Mode to capture a rapid succession of digital photos to the memory card. The Continuous Shooting Mode enables you to shoot 3 images/second at 1280x360 resolution, and an incredible 5 images/second at 640x480 resolution.
Flatter your subject with beautiful close-ups
Friends and family shy away when you zoom in for a close-up? The Elura-series camcorders utilize a Skin Detail Function that automatically softens details. The result is a more complimentary appearance guaranteed to turn your timid subjects into camera hogs.
Enhance Your Footage With Special Effects
Make your movies and photos the talk of the neighborhood. The Elura 90 features a wide selection of easy-to-use faders and special effects, such as Fade Trigger, Wipe, Corner, Jump, Flip, Puzzle, Zigzag, Beam and Tide.
For a more creative look, you can switch on the following digital effects during recording or playback*: Art, Black & White, Sepia, Mosaic, Ball, Cube, Wave, Color Mask or Mirror.
