Canon DC40 Widescreen Camcorder

Canon DC40 Widescreen Camcorder

While there are plenty of camcorders that claim to have widescreen recording, most don't utilize the full sensor to get them, resulting in a slightly lower resolution image. The Canon DC40 ($TBD; March) fixes this problem by using a 4.3 megapixel CCD. The DC40 also records straight to DVD with Dolby Digtal Stereo audio, takes great still images thanks to Canon's DIGIC DV processor, and doesn't take up a lot of space in the camera bag.

  • Sanyo Xacti HD1

    Finally an affordable, pocketable way to record video for our content-hungry HDTVs. The Sanyo Xacti HD1 ($800; available in March) records 720p HD video onto SD cards, as well as doubling as a 5.1 megapixel still camera. Other features include 10x optical zoom, a 2.2” OLED display, a multifunction docking station, and macro shooting down to 1cm away — so you can capture the horrible deaths of those fire ants in your driveway with exceptional clarity.

  • Kodak EasyShare V570

    The Kodak EasyShare V570 ($400) is the world’s first dual-lens digital still camera, combining a wide angle lens (23 mm) and an optical zoom lens (39 – 117 mm) in an ultra-compact body that's less than an inch thin. The 5-megapixel camera offers a 5x zoom, a 2.5-inch LCD, MPEG-4 video capability, and a super cool in-camera panorama stitching feature, which automatically combines three pictures into a 180-degree panorama photograph.
