Because of Superior Canon Optics, the name Canon is synonymous with unsurpassed optical performance. Canon's expertise in designing lenses for photography and broadcast television goes into every camcorder we make -- and the Optura S1 is no exception. Genuine Canon Optics is just one of the DV Photo Plus technologies that unleash the digital potential of your camcorder and ensures outstanding results.
The Optura S1 comes with a 10X optical zoom lens, precisely matched to the camcorder's CCD and featuring a unique spectral coating to reduce flare and ghosting. Combined with the camcorder's 200X digital zoom, the lens gives an impressive range of focal lengths. That means you always have the perfect lens for every one of life's coolest moments.
Canon's Advanced Image Stabilization also ensures unsurpassed optical performance -- whether you're shooting high action events or capturing a shot at a long focal length. Thanks to Canon's superior electronic expertise, the Optura S1's image stabilization system corrects camcorder shake instantly, even when panning or zooming.
