Following the tradition of releasing products that surpass quality standards and technology innovation, Canon has developed the Canon VIXIA HF100 high definition camcorder.
You’ll love this camera because it is designed with a 12x optical zoom so that the videos are magnified but not blurred and pixelated. And it provides Advanced Video Codec High Definition (AVCHD) format recording with the ease and numerous benefits of flash memory.

The camcorder works superbly with other mobile gadgets such as notebook PCs, MP3 players, PDAs and mobile phones.
In addition, Canon has incorporated Canon exclusive features such as 3.3-megapixel full HD 1/3.2-inch CMOS sensor and advanced DIGIC DV II image processor, superRange optical image stabilization, and instant auto focus. With a CMOS sensor, any device will have high noise immunity and low static power consumption.
The DIGIC DV II image processor was developed by Canon to bring optimal image quality for still images, even though video and still images have different color requirements. These features are included in this compact camcorder to bring out the videographer in every user and help them capture life as it happens. The recordings may be saved in MPEG-4 and AVCHD (HD) formats, and audio in 2-channel Dolby Digital. The camcorder also features a 2.7-inch Widescreen multi-angle vivid LCD and a Canon 12x HD video zoom lens so users documenting even from a good distance will still get great recording.
For first-time users, their first movie doesn’t have to be a poorly-shot recording. With 24p Cinema Mode, the camcorder helps achieve a professional ‘film-look’ and change the frame capture rate to 24p (recorded at 60i), which provides the appearance of the same frame rate as movie film. The VIXIA HF10′s cinema setting changes the color and tone of the recording.
Images and videos are captured in 1920×1080 pixels and are stored in the camcorder’s SecureDigital or SDHC memory card. To save memory and record more videos, the VIXIA HF100 may compress the files in DPOF and DCF Exif 2.2 formats.
Aside from all these high-tech features, the camcorder is supported by a slew of features to help produce breathtaking video. These features include f/18 to f/3.0 aperture, white balance, 30p progressive mode and a Pixela ImageMixer software. This software allows you to organize, enhance, and share your videos, as well as transfer them to any computer and burn a standard definition DVD. It comes with a catalog system that maintains an indexed and catalogued file.
The VIXIA HF100 connects to a device via a USB mini-B port. It is powered by a rechargeable Lithium-ion battery and comes with a battery charger.
Everything you need for a high-quality camcorder is found with Canon. With the Canon VIXIA HF100 High Definition Camcorder, you’ll start shooting in no time at all!
