Canon has introduced a new flagship model to its 2009 VIXIA high-definition camcorder line, the VIXIA HF S11 Dual Flash Memory camcorder. Canon has alsoannounced a new camcorder accessory, the RA-V1 Remote Control Adapter for professional-level functionality when shooting from a tripod by adding LANC input.

The VIXIA HF S11 adds several new features that enhance operability and deliver unsurpassed image quality. The VIXIA HF S11 offers the ability to record up to 24 hours of crisp high-definition video to a 64GB internal flash drive and the option of recording video directly to removable SDHC memory cards. The 24Mbps recording capability of the VIXIA  HF  S11 gives you the highest quality AVCHD video possible. Two new features that help enhance the video capture and viewing experience are Canon’s new Dynamic SuperRange OIS system, which delivers shake correction by providing continuous adjustment throughout the entire zoom range, and an Advanced Video Snapshot Mode which allows you to create a highlight movie to share with family and friends by recording a series of four second clips when in shooting mode as well as in playback mode.   The camera also 8.0 megapixel still photos.

The VIXIA HF S11 features a Canon designed and manufactured 8.59-megapixel Full HD CMOS Image Sensor and Canon DIGIC DV III Image Processor. It also features   Face Detection, Instant AutoFocus, and the ability to record in 24p Cinema Mode or 30p Progressive Mode. In addition, the VIXIA HF S11 offers manual gain control limits and manual focus controls found in professional camcorders.

As a new accessory, the RA-V1 Remote Control Adapter provides the VIXIA HF S11 with a LANC terminal for connecting optional Canon (ZR-1000 and ZR-2000) and third-party wired remote controllers. This adapter fits into the Mini Advanced Accessory Shoe for controlling various camcorder functions, such as power on/off, record start/stop, zooming and focus, and is ideal when used on a tripod.

Scheduled to be available in mid-September, the Canon VIXIA HF S11 Dual Flash Memory Camcorder, as well as the RA-V1 Remote Control Adapter, sell for an estimated retail price of $1,399.99 and $120, respectively.
