The official marketing text of Canon MVX40 2.2Mpix as supplied by the manufacturer
With photo features and functions to make many purpose-built digital cameras blush, the Optical Image Stabilized 2.2 Megapixel MVX40 gives a new dimension to your visual expression.

Power in your palm
With compelling design, the 10x Optical Zoom MVX40 is as brilliant to handle as the results it produces. A stylish compact body conceals a powerful 2.2 Megapixel sensor and RGB Primary Color Filter to capture every detail of every scene for superb video and digital photo quality.

Rock steady
Normally featured in much more expensive video cameras, advanced Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) acts as an invisible tripod to ensure calm, steady footage. Unlike electronic stabilization, OIS continues to work when shooting dramatic wide screen 16:9 footage and when shooting digital stills, keeping your photos crisp and blur free.

Two in one
With its powerful DIGIC DV processor, the MVX40 has photo functions typically found only in specialist digital cameras. You have access to picture effects such as Sepia and Vivid Colour, special Scene Modes to help you get great results in tricky lighting conditions, Auto Exposure Bracketing and a built-in flash. Dual path DIGIC DV processing lets you take photos and record video simultaneously, and up to 60 frames at 5fps can be shot in a single burst.

Precision optics
Offering superb image clarity, the 10x zoom lens builds on 60 years of Canon experience. An aspheric element ensures corner to corner clarity and Super Spectra lens coatings suppress ghosting and flare.

Emotional Colours
The RGB Primary Color Filter enhances tonal accuracy and colour definition.
Recording the colours we humans recall and respond to, Canon's DIGIC DV processor then translates optical data into beautiful, lifelike imagery. Skin tones are warm and natural, while colours such as the blues of a sky or the greens of grass are rich and vibrant.

Anytime, anywhere
When outdoors, a backlight button makes the 2.5" LCD extra visible, while Night Mode allows recording in low light conditions. A Light Guide Flash further extends digital still shooting options.

Razor sharp
For shooting photos, the same 9-point auto focusing found in Canon's high-end digital still cameras keeps your image sharp – even with off-centre subjects. A Manual Focus Ring gives you total and precise control.

Easy prints
To create album quality prints, simply connect your new camcorder to any PictBridge compatible printer and hit the Print/Share button – it is that easy. And with the USB 2.0 link, photo prints and file uploads to computer are also super fast.

Image sensor
Total megapixels*
A megapixel (MP or Mpx) is one million pixels, and is a term used not only for the number of pixels in an image, but also to express the number of image sensor elements of digital cameras or the number of display elements of digital displays. For example, a camera that makes a 2048 × 1536 pixel image typically uses a few extra rows and columns of sensor elements and is commonly said to have "3.2 megapixels" or "3.4 megapixels", depending on whether the number reported is the "effective" or the "total" pixel count (as opposed to the 2048 × 1536 = 3,145,728 finished image pixels).
2.23 MP
Sensor type*
A sensor is a convertor than measures a physical quality (light, temperature etc.) and displays this electronically on a device.
Optical sensor size
Optical sensors are electronic detectors that convert light, or a change in light, into an electronic signal. They are used in many industrial and consumer applications e.g. lamps that turn on automatically in response to darkness. Optical sensors come in many sizes.
Optical sensor resolution
2230000 pixels
Effective megapixels (movie)
2 MP
Lens system
Optical zoom*
Indicates the optical zoom capacity, which is the number of times that the picture can be enlarged with the optics of the camera.
Image stabilizer*
This camera function compensates for slight shaking movements caused by an unstable position and ensures smooth footage even in suboptimal conditions.
Digital zoom*
Indicates the digital zoom capacity, the number of times that the picture is enlarged thanks to digital technology.
Focal length range (f-f)
Measure of how strongly the system converges or diverges light. For an optical system in air, it is the distance over which initially collimated rays are brought to a focus. A system with a shorter focal length has greater optical power than one with a long focal length; that is, it bends the rays more strongly, bringing them to a focus in a shorter distance.For an optical system in air, the effective focal length (f and f′) gives the distance from the front and rear principal planes (H and H′) to the corresponding focal points (F and F′).
39.9 - 399 mm
Filter size
A filter is a screen, plate, or layer of a substance which absorbs light or other radiation or selectively absorbs some of its components e.g. a UV filter to reduce UV light. Filters come in various sizes.
3.4 cm
Compatible memory cards*
Types of memory cards which can be used with this product.
Camcorder tape type*
The type of tape used to record images from a camcorder, e.g. VHS, Video8.
Camera shutter speed
Determines the length of time the shutter lets light pass through the lens to the CCD. Shutter speed and aperture together determine exposure.
1/2000, 1/2
Display diagonal*
Size of the display for this product, measured diagonally, usually in inches.
6.35 cm (2.5")
The description of display that can includes display type, resolution, size etc.
Display resolution
The number of distinct pixels in each dimension that can be displayed. It is usually quoted as width × height, with the units in pixels: for example, "1024 × 768" means the width is 1024 pixels and the height is 768 pixels. The higher the number of pixels, the sharper the image.
112000 pixels
Minimum illumination
Also known as light sensitivity, this is the smallest amount of light needed for the camera to produce an image of useable quality.
