d10694: I already have 2 lenses that adjust by changing their shape, with additional coated glass lenses in the group to improve performance and focus.

You certainly mean your pair of Mark I eyeballs, right?

Hi P@l: If you look closer to one of the product pictures on the same page (Vixia3.jpg) you will see "DC IN" on the little cover that also has "HDMI" on it. So this camera does support external power source...it's just a matter of finding one that works with it and your car, be it from Canon or other 3rd-party makers. canon's offering will not be cheap, though.

I will save some money to buy one for my car!!

Hi P@l: Apart from your observation that this camera is likely not having a DC socket for external power source, I also notice the absence of LED lights next to the lens. The car-cam I used to install in my car has 2 powerful LED lights on either side of the lens, thus making night-time recording possible.

If you want to install it in your car, look for suction-cup bracket with a tripod screw - you can stick it on the inside of the windshield. Although I haven't checked t out yet, you may find those accessories made for GoPro works for this Canon beauty.

SeeRoy: "Lunar"; "Stellar"...
It would be more appropriate to use the astronomical term "Black Hole" - toward which this company is surely heading.

I would think the next one will be called "Disaster" LOL
