As with the entire Elura-series camcorders, the Elura 80 takes advantage of the MiniDV format (a worldwide industry standard) for effortless transfer, edit and sharing of your memories... without any loss in quality.
The IEEE1394-compliant DV terminal lets you connect the camcorder to a DV-compatible computer or another Canon DV camcorder, making it easy to transfer your digital movies to your computer's hard disk, edit your scenes, and then use them to create high-impact Web sites, video e-mail, interactive CDs and DVDs, or a personal video album.
The USB Terminal makes for high-speed transfer of images from your SD Memory Card or MultiMediaCard to your computer. By using the USB cable and software provided, you can process and organize your images on your PC.
SD Memory Card/MultiMediaCard Slots
For convenient storage and portability of your still images, the Elura 80 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, 320x240 or 160x120, for the full duration of the SD Memory Card.
