From the Manufacturer

Don't let the joy of first steps, first graduations, and first grandchildren pass you by. The Elura 85, part of Canon's redesigned line of Elura camcorders, offers the perfect balance between functionality and affordability. With a smooth, streamlined design, easy-to-use controls and powerful digital image-making capabilities, there is nowhere you'll want to go without the Elura 85 in the palm of your hand.

It's no wonder that Canon is known the world over for its professional image quality in photography and broadcast television. A true two-in-one solution, the Elura 85 gives you the ability to shoot videos and photos that capture all of life's vibrant color, clarity, and detail. It's all thanks to Canon's advanced DV Photo Plus technology, which combines Genuine Canon Optics and a Mega Pixel CCD image sensor, with a Digic DV image processor and versatile Print and Share features.

Edit your digital videos and photos into the perfect family album for playback on a TV or computer. Dim the lights, grab the popcorn, and treat your family and friends to high-resolution 16:9 widescreen images. A step above the Elura 80, the Elura 85 extends your memory-preserving power even farther with Super Night and Night low-light exposure modes, and a new built-in flash. And since the Elura 85 is compatible with Windows XP and Apple computer systems, you'll be able to share your favorite memories for years to come.

Experience the Canon Difference: DV Photo Plus
Canon's DV Photo Plus achieves premium quality video and photos by combining four features; Genuine Canon Optics, a Mega Pixel CCD image sensor, Digic DV image processor and Print and Share. The moment you watch video on a TV or hold a print in your hand, the difference is clear. DV Photo Plus unleashes the full digital imaging power of your Canon camcorder, promising a superior level of clarity, color, and excellence to video and photos.

Extend Your Sight with Optical and Digital Zooms
This is where Canon's vast expertise in designing and crafting precision lenses for 35mm and broadcast TV cameras truly shines. The Elura 85 features an 18x optical zoom/360x digital zoom lens that delivers superior imagery with vibrant color and clarity. Snap on the optional WA-34 Wide Attachment (0.7x), and you'll be able to capture a wider perspective for indoor shots or panoramic views.

Preserve Every Moment with Vibrant Color
From forest green to ocean blue, sunflower yellow to fire red, the Elura 85 digital camcorder preserves every hue with superior clarity and detail thanks to its 1.33-megapixel image sensor. The product of Canon ingenuity and technological expertise, the image sensor achieves high-resolution results whether recording video to DV tape or still images onto a memory card. Photos can be captured at a variety of different image qualities and compression sizes (Superfine/ Fine/Normal) giving you the ability to balance quantity with quality.

Go Wide with 16:9 Widescreen Recording
Hollywood directors have known for decades that a widescreen image captures the vibrancy of life best. That's also why the Elura 85 features a high-resolution 16:9 widescreen recording mode. You'll be able to take true widescreen videos and photos for playback on your home theatre system.

SD Memory Card/MultiMediaCard Slots
For convenient storage and portability of your still images, the Elura 85 features a built-in slot for SD (Secure Digital) Memory Cards and MultiMediaCards. You can also store Motion JPEG mini-movies directly on the removable card for later attaching to e-mails or posting on the Web. Shoot in two different resolutions, 320 x 240 or 160 x 120, for the full duration of the SD Memory Card.

Print and Share at the Touch of a Button
Printing and downloading images to a computer is a quick, easy, and enjoyable task with an Elura-series camcorder. When the Elura 85 is connected to a printer, the Print/Share button lights up blue, letting you know that you can begin printing simply by pressing it once. You can also transfer a photo directly to your computer, with just a single press of the button.

Shed Light onto Low-Light Situations
When the available light still has your subject in the dark, switch on the Elura 85's Night Mode feature. One press of the Night Mode and the Elura 85 automatically selects a slow shutter speed and increases the sensitivity of the CCD to brighten up your subject, while still preserving color.

For enhanced capability in low-light situations, the Elura 85 gives you two additional Night Mode settings, Super Night Mode and Night Plus Mode. Each mode can be selected from the menu and assigned to the Night Mode button. Super Night Mode automatically triggers the white LED Lamp when needed to enhance the subject for shooting. Night Plus Mode is used in the toughest lighting situations, keeping the white LED lamp on all the time.

Lock-In on the Action
Even the most photogenic of friends and family are sometimes hard to pin down for a great shot. Fortunately, the Elura 85 features Canon's high quality Image Stabilization system. Even when shooting hand-held at full telephoto, the Image Stabilization system is working behind the scenes to instantly correct camcorder shake, resulting in videos that are smooth, steady, and natural.

LCD Backlight
When shooting outdoors, the Elura 85's bright 2.5-inch LCD view screen features an LCD Backlight button that boosts the displays brightness by 250%. Now it's easier than ever to compose sensational shots without having to squint into the viewfinder. You can also rotate the screen for high-or low-angle shots, or turn it around 180 to record yourself. When you're done shooting, the screen is perfect for reviewing your scenes.

Give Your Memory Banks a Rest with Bonus Software
Your Elura 85 Kit comes complete with bonus software for image management and editing: ZoomBrowser EX (Windows) and ImageBrowser (Macintosh). Download, browse, archive, and retouch your photos, or have your images automatically resized for e-mail. The software also assists with arranging images for printing and even adding text.

The MiniDV format offers more precise image detail and color accuracy than previously possible with analog camcorders. The superior quality of digital video results from:

  • Higher Resolution: Up to 530 lines of horizontal resolution, on select models for sharper picture detail
  • CompOnent Color Sampling: Preserves three times more color information than analog VHS and S-VHS video, for brighter and truer colors
