Canon has announced two new digital camcorders, the MVX30i and MVX35i. Both camcorders feature a single 2.2Mp CCD, a 10x optical zoom and dedicated digital stills functionality. The MVX35i is MPEG-4 compatible.
To be released in August, the vertical format camcorders also feature RGB primary colour filters, built in flash and Canon DIGIC DV processors. The DIGIC DV processor has separate processing paths for video and stills, which Canon claims gives true 256 gradation JPEG stills.
