Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in analog and digital cameras and camcorders, is introducing the new Elura 50 DV camcorder. Along with its exceptional quality digital video and digital photo capabilities, the Elura 50's ultra-compact design makes it the perfect recording companion anywhere your travels take you. The Elura 50 provides Direct Connect print capabilities when used with Canon's CP-10 Card Photo Printer and select Canon Bubble Jet Direct Printers making it easy and fast to print photos at home or while traveling. Distant objects are brought to the forefront by a 10x zoom lens with genuine Canon optics plus a digital zoom from 40x to 400x.

The Elura 50 accepts either a Secure Digital (SD) or Multimedia (MMC) card for recording digital photos. Users can easily select between two picture-quality modes: XGA (1024x768) and VGA (640x480), which in turn can be set to three different resolutions - standard, fine and super-fine - based on the image quality that best suits their needs.

The Canon Elura 50 is the latest in Canon's line of DV camcorders to include a Direct Print feature, allowing users to connect directly to a number of Canon Bubble Jet Direct Printer and the Card Photo Printer CP-10 dye-sublimation printer. Once connected with the supplied USB cable, users can select the image and quantity to be printed, making it easy and fun to print at home and share photos with family and friends.

DIGIC DV provides dual image signal processing capabilities, which can differentiate between the video and digital still formats. DIGIC DV makes it possible to achieve accurate color for both video and digital photos by utilizing two different color techniques to maximize video quality on a TV and still image quality for print or computer display.

The Canon Elura 50 features an exclusive connection circuit called VIC. In the past, multiple chips have been needed to perform the camcorder's input and output functions. However VIC manages it all with one single chip, which results in reliable connectivity whether one is connecting to a computer, TV, or VCR.

Beyond its numerous recording capabilities, the high-quality video and digital photos produced with the Elura 50 can be attributed to a number of key design features including its 1/6-inch, 680,000 pixel CCD image sensor and DIGIC DV processor, which improves the color reproduction for TV playback and printing color photos.

Additional Features include the following:

? 16:9 Widescreen Mode
? Built-In Microphone Terminal
? Integrated Speaker
? Photo Search/Date Search
? Time Code
? Self-Timer
? LANC Terminal

The Elura 50 kit includes two CDs with a suite of helpful software for image management and editing. The Canon Digital Video Solutions CD includes ZoomBrowser EX (Windows) and ImageBrowser (Mac) that make it easy to download, organize, browse and resize digital photos for email. Photo Record, a printing utility that makes it easy to add frames and captions to the images and arrange a page layout for printing, is also included. Photo Stitch makes it easy to import a series of still images and create an extra wide-angle panoramic digital photo.

The Canon Elura 50 comes complete as a kit which includes the camcorder, Battery pack NB-2L, AC adapter CA-PS700, Battery Charger CB-2LT, USB Cable, 8MB SD Memory Card SDC-8M, Wireless Remote WL-D77, S-Video cable S-150, Stereo Video Cable STV-250. The Application Software CD-ROM included in the kit offers a USB Driver, ZoomBrowser EX (Windows) and ImageBrowser (Mac), Photo Stitch, Photo Record (Windows), and Canon DV Messenger.

The Canon Elura 50 DV camcorder kit will be available at dealers nationwide in May and have a suggested retail price of $899.00.
