Posted by at 10:28 am on August 7, 2008

Canon today announced the VIXIA HF11 Dual Flash Memory Camcorder, and the VIXIA HG21 and VIXIA HG20 Hard Disk Drive camcorders.

The new models are all Canon’s first to record High-Definition images at 24Mbps bit rate recording in the AVCHD (H.264) format, thereby producing more detail and color accuracy.

“The upgrade to 24Mbps enables consumers to capture the highest quality of video in the market today, providing the best High-Definition experience on an HDTV” said Yuichi Ishizuka, senior vice president and general manager, Consumer Imaging Group, Canon U.S.A. “This increase, as well as dual recording options on all three VIXIA camcorders, is just another example of Canon’s commitment to understanding the marketplace and helping to lay the groundwork to lead the market for the current and next generation of High-Definition camcorders.”

The VIXIA HF11 Dual Flash Memory camcorder can record up to12 hours of High-Definition video to a 32GB internal Flash drive, which is enough to hold two hours and 55 minutes of full-quality 1920×1080 (full 1080 HD format) video. There is a removable SDHC card slot for expanded recording time without gaining the weight of hard drives or tapes.

The VIXIA HG21 and VIXIA HG20 camcorders feature 120GB and 60GB Hard Disk Drives, respectively, for recording up to 45 or 22 hours of HD video, and also offer the ability to record directly to an SDHC card.

The new VIXIA models ship in September at prices of $949 for the HG20, $1199 for the HF11, and $1299 for the HG21. All models come bundled with Pixela ImageMixer 3SE video editing software, which now supports Blu-Ray disk burning.
