Canon VIXIA HF S10

The Canon VIXIA HF S10 is a dual flash memory camcorder with a 32GB internal flash drive and an SDHC card slot for memory expandibility. The internal storage capacity itself gives users up to a maximum of 2 hours and 55 minutes of highest quality MXP (approximately 24 mbps) video recording. The VIXIA HF S10 has a quick response time from power up to recording, and has shock resistance features that protect data from damage. Because it does not have moving parts, it minimises the chance of data loss due to damage to recording media or the moving parts found in other camcorders. The camcorder also utilizes Canon 10X HD video Lens with four zoom speeds, 200x digital zoom, three pre-set and one variable for steady professional-looking zoom shots. The lens also has Super Spectra Coating technology for minimum flare and ghosting, and aspheric design that reduces aberration and increases resolution. It also has gradation neutral density (ND) system for optimum exposures in bright shooting situations. The camcorder also has a built-in 1.7x digital tele-converter that provides extended telephoto range. The HF S10 measures 70x69x136mm and weighs 450g.

Features

The HF S10 captures images in 1920 x 1080 high definition video through its 1/2.6-inch 8.59megapixel HD CMOS image sensor, which is similar to the sensors in Canon's EOS series of dSLRs. It also features the proprietary noise reduction technology, and an RGB primary colour filter with Bayer Placement Pattern for accurate colour reproduction and natural-looking tones. Other features on the camcorder are DIGIC DV III Image Processor, Face Detection technology for up to 35 faces, a built-in 8.0 megapixel digital camera, Dolby Digital 2 channels (AC-3 2 ch) support, a 2.7 inch multi-angle vivid widescreen LCD, HDMI™ v1.3 for connectivity to a HDTV, and has support for x.v. Color, an expanded color space which closely matches the range of the human eye. The VIXIA HF S10 also supports CEC (Consumer Electronics Control) that allows multiple HDMI devices connected to the HDTV to be controlled by one remote control. The Canon VIXIA HF S10 High Definition Camcorder is bundled with a powerful software suite, Pixela ImageMixer 3SE™. This software allows users to do AVCHD editing (to trim, reorder, and combine scenes, add music, titles, and transitions), play AVCHD movies on a computer and will also let users share copies of movie with friends and family through Flash Memory to hard drive copying.
