Product Description From Amazon.com:

MultiCam camcorders feature digital camcorder and digital still camera capabilities, all in one easy-to-use camcorder.10x Hi-Definition Zoom - A zoom this powerful works like a telescope to produce close-up shots with extraordinary clarity. And with seven different zoom speeds, you can control how quick you go from a wide angle to telephoto zoom - anywhere from 2 to 22 seconds. Through advanced digital technology, the zoom ratio on our digital camcorders can be increased to 700:1, producing an incredibly, clear, close shot.EfficiBright is on the Compact Camcorders which are equipped with this built-in LED light, which adds a bright light to your subjects, giving you a better shot while preserving battery life.The 2.5" Diagonal Color LCD Monitor lets you view your subject in full color during shooting and playback through a large, 2.5" LCD screen. Digital EIS is a unique idea that helps compensate for unintentional hand and/or camcorder movement. It even reduces unwanted jitter from recordings made in a car, or while walking. The audio zooms in along with the picture, enabling you to pinpoint distant sound emanating from your subject. And Wind Noise Reduction helps to cut down on unwanted background noise.
