Detailed Features


In true 16:9 recording mode, the MV900 captures eye-catching widescreen video. Designed with wide shooting in mind, the camcorder has a 2.7" 16:9 LCD screen as well as a colour viewfinder, meaning that video is even monitored in the way it will appear on a widescreen TV set. It’s also easy to line images up properly using the LCD’s level marker, while 4:3 shooting can be selected at the push of a button.

25x optical zoom

The MV900’s high power lens has a 25x optical zoom with Electronic Image Stabilization and variable zoom speeds, for pinpoint accuracy.

DIGIC DV’s vivid colours

Thanks to Canon’s DIGIC DV, colours are recorded to miniDV tape as you remember them: vivid, vibrant and bursting with realism.

Canon’s MV900 camcorder makes it easy for anyone to start making great looking home videos. At the touch of a button, the camcorder switches the most important shooting controls to automatic, allowing you to concentrate on catching all of the action.

Easy handling and a compact design

Sporting a distinctive blue metallic finish, the MV900 is designed with easy handling in mind. Weighing just 380g, the camcorder is perfectly balanced, providing effortless and comfortable handheld shooting.

Convenient sliding lens cover

The lens is the most important part of any camcorder and thanks to the MV900’s built-in sliding lens cover you’ll never have to worry about it getting damaged.

Mic input

With an external microphone plugged-in to the MV900, it’s easy to capture all of the party atmosphere as well as to record your own voiceovers, explaining what’s going on.
