Canon's Zr-900 MiniDV Camcorder provides for the old school faithful who love the tape format. This standard definition camcorder is an affordable yet impressive addition to the Canon family. The 1/6" CCD image sensor captures clear, accurate video every time you shoot while the 41x Advanced Zoom brings your subject close-up with no loss of image quality. And what may be the most impressive features of all are the microphone and headphone inputs, virtually unheard of in the consumer video market. Smooth Zoom Control provides three preset speeds for professional looking zoom shots. The Quick Start function ensures that you'll never miss another once-in-a-lifetime shot again and the convenient joystick allows you to control playback, focus, exposure and menu functions. The ZR-900 also features a 2.7" LCD, Widescreen HR recording, an Image Stabilizer, a DIGIC DV processor and a built-in lens cap. If you've been looking for an affordable MiniDV camera you just found it.
