Canon is adding three new camcorders into its VIXIA high-definition line-up, the VIXIA HF11 with dual flash memory, and the HG20 and HG21 with hard drive storage. All three camcorders boast a 24Mbps bit rate recording which is the highest possible bit rate that can be achieved in the AVCHD format.
And since high-definition video recording would require lots of storage, Canon has put in 32GB of internal flash drive into the HF11 plus an SDHC card slot for even more, while the HG21 and HG20 got 120GB and 60GB hard disk drives respectively. Other features of these camcorders include an HD Video Lens, HD CMOS Image Sensor that allows full HD (1920 x 1080) image capture, DIGIC DV II Image Processor, Instant Auto Focus and SuperRange Optical Image Stabilization feature.
If you’re looking to get any one of these camcorders, you don’t have to wait long as Canon is set to release all three sometime in September. Bundled with Pixela ImageMixer 3SE for video editing, the VIXIA HF11, VIXIA HG21 and VIXIA HG20 will retail for $1199, $1299 and $949 respectively.
