Topics I've Started

FS Canon MV1 and Amphibico housing

07 January 2008 - 05:16 AM

Hi folk,
Had this a few years and have now upgraded to HDV

I am asking for a fair offer on the whole setup

First the camera.....

Canon MV1

This is what was said at the time.......

The MV1 includes a lens-unit equipped with a 14x optical zoom, the largest optical zoom ratio available in a digital camcorder, and a 35x digital zoom, as well as an optical image stabilizer. It also features a progressive scan CCD (charge-coupled device), the first ever in a camcorder, which is capable of scanning an entire frame image in 1/60th of a second, with an RGB primary color filter offering superior spectral diffraction, making possible natural color reproduction and an improved signal-to-noise ratio.

The MV1 is equipped with Canon's two newly developed digital integrated circuits, allowing users to select from three recording modes--a field movie mode, a frame movie mode, and a photo mode--depending on the intended purpose of the images. Regardless of which mode is used, the new camcorder provides high vertical and color resolution comparable to more advanced 3CCD systems used in professional equipment.

The body of the MV1 utilizes the same ergonomics employed in Canon's SLR cameras, providing comfortable, easy-to-use operation and stable image recording. The color viewfinder allows precise framing and the tilting color liquid-crystal display provides users with freedom in selecting shot angles.

Now the housing
