Canon U.S.A., Inc, a leader in digital imaging, today announced an exciting new line of eight VIXIA High Definition flash memory camcorders. The 2011 high-definition lineup includes Canon’s new flagship model the VIXIA HF G10, the high-end VIXIA HF S30, three compact VIXIA HF M-series models and three entry-level VIXIA HF R-series models. Constantly pushing digital imaging forward, Canon has improved upon its Full HD CMOS image sensor, with the introduction of the new HD CMOS Pro Image Sensor, available in the VIXIA HF G10 and VIXIA HF M-series camcorders.
The Vixia HF100 and Vixia HF10 are tapeless camcorders unveiled in January 2008 and put on sale in April 2008. The camcorders record high definition AVCHD video onto a secure digital memory card.
Video can be recorded in four quality settings: FXP (1920 x 1080, 17 Mbit/s), XP+ (1440 x 1080, 12 Mbit/s), SP (1440 x 1080, 7 Mbit/s), and LP (1440 x 1080, 5 Mbit/s). A SDHC card with the capacity of 16GB can hold up to 2 hours of video recorded at highest quality setting.
When recording to a memory card, the recording time depends only on capacity of the card. The HF100 uses full-size SDHC memory cards. One 4GB card can fit roughly 30 minutes of video at highest quality setting (FXP). A Class 4 or higher card is required to be able to record in FXP mode, but due to a limitation of the firmware, Class 10 cards cannot be used to record in FXP mode.
The Vixia HF10 has 16GB of internal memory, complementing the same full-size SDHC memory card slot as the HF100.
The distinguishing features of this camcorder include:
External microphone jack Headphone jack Mini Advanced Shoe (proprietary) Threaded lens barrel for attachments (37mm) On the other hand, the camcorder has no viewfinder and no focus ring.
Fifteen Vixia HF10 units were used as crash-cams during the filming of Crank: High Voltage.
