Actual
Size
The Canon ELURA2 and ELURA2 MC
(Memory Card) represent the peak of
technology, functionality and
miniaturization. Each innovative model is
capable of capturing high-resolution
digital video, still photos and 30 frames
per second Progressive Scan Digital
Motor Drive. Beyond their shooting
versatility, each ELURA2 model
effortlessly connects to a TV, VCR or DVready computer. To easily record, manage
and transfer still images to a personal
computer, the ELURA2 MC accepts the
industry standard MultiMediaCard.
The ELURA2 MC and ELURA2 measure
up to the new standards in digital
imaging in a size that doesn't measure
much at all.
Progressive
Scan CCD
The ELURA2 MC /
ELURA2
incorporate a Progressive
Scan CCD image sensor that
delivers a significant
improvement in performance
and image quality. Each and
every light gathering pixel on
the CCD is used to produce a
full frame video image 60
times per second. In contrast,
the conventional interlace-type
CCD produces only half a full
frame, known as a field, in the
same amount of time. The
Progressive Scan CCD
provides a serious advantage
to those who desire
impeccable clarity of fast
moving subjects. The interlace
method used on other
camcorders combines two
field images together, but a
time lapse between the fields
can cause a disturbing image
flicker on the television screen
when playback is paused.
Recordings of subjects
moving at high speed such as
athletes, wildlife and even
machinery can be viewed on a
television with superior
resolution. And this CCD type
makes it possible to produce
better quality video prints than
ever before. Also, realizing
people shoot video in a variety
of light levels, Canon designed
the ELURA2 MC / ELURA2 to
perform exceptionally well in
low light too.
RGB Primary
Color Filter
In addition to
achieving higher
resolution, the ELURA2 MC /
ELURA2's Progressive Scan
CCD integrates an RGB
Primary Color Filter which
separates light passing
through the lens into individual
red, green and blue color
components, similar to
professional camcorders. As a
result, the ELURA2 MC /
ELURA2 achieve more
accurate color reproduction
with finer gradations than
models using a conventional
complementary color filter. The
difference is especially
noticeable, for instance, in skin
tones and scenes with a
dominant color such as
sunsets, a ski slope or a forest.
High Quality
Shooting in Low
Light Conditions
The ELURA2 MC / ELURA2
incorporate noise reduction
circuitry to deliver superior
image quality. By eliminating
video noise, which can occur
during signal processing,
Canon has increased the
signal to noise ratio. Your
videos will be cleaner overall,
free from annoying color noise
or graininess when shooting
under low light levels.
effortlessly. The digital zoom
extends the magnification to
40x, revealing details too
distant to be seen with just the
eye alone.

contributed to the development
of the ELURA2 MC / ELURA2's

delivers incredibly high

ability to transform distant

The ELURA2 MC / ELURA2 are equipped with a DV IN/OUT terminal
that conforms to IEEE 1394. It takes just a single digital cable to transfer
or copy your videos in pure digital form to your DV compatible computer
or another Canon DV camcorder. Once you’ve transferred video images
to your computer, you can edit your movies or send your movies over
the Internet, post them on your Web site, print them out on a Canon
color printer, transfer them back to your Canon camcorder and archive
them on a Mini DV cassette or create a dubbing master.
DV Format
Enter the world of DV and realize truly amazing picture and sound
quality. Images reaching up to 500 line horizontal resolution reveal
stunning detail and clarity. Clearly superior quality than even the best
analog camcorders, by 20% at least, and free from annoying color noise.
