LAKE SUCCESS, NY, March 14, 2000 – Canon U.S.A., Inc., the company whose imaging
solutions give people KNOW HOW, today introduced the Canon ZR10 digital video camcorder, an
affordable DV solution that is both full-featured and ultra-compact.

Weighing only 1.5 pounds, measuring just 2 x 3 x 5 inches and featuring hot, eye-grabbing translucent
accents and detailing, the ZR10 rests comfortably in any hand, and can be carried in a waist pack,
slipped into a coat pocket, or fit into a beach bag or briefcase with room to spare.

“Consumers are eager to create digital videos on their home PCs and share them with friends and
family via the Internet,” said Yukiaki Hashimoto, vice president and general manager, Photographic
Products Group, Canon U.S.A. “Canon has placed consumers in the thick of the digital video age
with the sophisticated video technology and stylish design of the ZR10.”

The ZR10 is available at authorized Canon dealers beginning late April 2000. It includes all the basic
features consumers expect and many additional features without sacrificing its compact and
contemporary design. The manufactured suggested retail price is $999 (with options priced
separately).
