The vibrant color of sunset, the exhilarating action of a championship goal, and the tender moment of life are all preserved in spectacular color, clarity and detail by the ZR-100. Canon's most affordable, yet exceptionally powerful, digital camcorder brings together a variety of advanced features in one stylish package.

Inside the streamlined body of the ZR100 is Canon's DIGIC DV system, which delivers outstanding image quality videos. Another highlight of the camcorder is its high-resolution 16:9 widescreen recording mode, which lets you capture true widescreen videos.

Genuine Canon Optics
Canon is known the world over for its vast expertise in designing and crafting precision lenses for camera and broadcast video cameras. That same expertise goes into the lens of this digital camcorder.
This feature makes it possible to achieve accurate color for both video and digital photos. Since video and photos have different color requirements, DIGIC DV utilizes two different color techniques to maximize video quality on a TV and still image quality for print or computer display.
High Resolution Widescreen
To match the popular widescreen TVs, this camcorder can record high resolution 16:9 video. Unlike camcorders which only record a vertically stretched picture. This camcorder uses the full width of the CCD, filling the entire screen with crisp, high quality images.
LCD Backlight
For shooting on bright, sunny days, the LCD Backlight button improves the visibility of the 2.4" LCD viewscreen, making it easy to compose sensational shots. Features an innovative backlight, that boosts the display's brightness by 250%. Simply press the LCD Backlight button for improved visibility even during the peak of a sunny summer's day.
Embracing the industry's latest and most sophisticated technology, Canon camcorders feature an exclusive connection circuit, called VIC.
VIC is a virtual powerhouse. Traditionally, multiple chips were needed to perform the camcorder's input and output functions.
However VIC manages it all with one single chip. The result is seamless connectivity whether you are connecting to a computer, TV, or VCR.
Make Your Movies Sparkle With In-Camera Effects
This camcorder comes complete with a wide selection of fades that can add visual appeal and greater imaging variety. Choose from Fade Trigger, Wipe, Corner, Jump, Flip, Puzzle, Zigzag, Beam and Tide.

Digital Effects
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.

Multi-image Screen Divide your screen into four, nine or sixteen pictures with the Image Capture function. You can also select the speed the images are captured: Manual, Slow, Moderate or Fast.

Personalize Your Camcorder
Add your own personal touches to your ZR100, such as customized start-up images and camcorder operation sounds. With the My Camera Function you can also select your preferred operating language, be it English, French, Spanish, German, Italian, Russian, Chinese or Japanese, in addition to the date format.
