The HV40's true 16:9 widescreen HD image is made for your HD widescreen TV. High Definition and widescreen are the future. Be sure you invest in that future with Canon's HV40.
At the same time, the HV40 gives you the flexibility to record in SD (standard definition) mode, too. That means you can enjoy the ultimate in HD video and photo quality, and still shoot SD video for viewing on your non-HD equipment.
The HV40 features a Canon designed and manufactured CMOS image sensor. The CMOS image sensors in Canon's EOS Series Digital SLR cameras result in outstanding digital photographs. In the HV40, the CMOS sensor reproduces high-resolution images at 1920 x 1080 resolution with Full HD information in video images.
HV40's 10x HD Video Lens lets you capture landscapes and tight shots easily, with three fixed zoom speeds for fluid transitions. The super spectra coating keeps flare and ghosting at bay while the lens' aspheric design cuts down on aberration while boosting resolution.
Thanks to DIGIC DV II image processing, the HV40 produces video with improved color reproduction - especially in skin tones, and dark and light scenes. It also uses a hybrid noise reduction system that employs two types of noise reduction - for high definition images that are crystal clear.
Capture 3.1Mp digital photos to miniSD memory cards and enjoy special functions that make shooting easier, like the Histogram Display, scene modes and auto focus. You can also simultaneously capture still images while shooting video or save stills to a miniSD card after the video has already been shot.
Canon's Optical Image Stabilizer corrects for hand shake, moving subjects and the inevitable slight bump. SuperRange Gyro and image sensors also correct for a wider range of incidents such as body sway and recording in a moving car as well as ensuring no loss in image quality.
