>> Hi, I'm Natali Del Conte with CNET TV. Welcome to CES 2009 where we're taking the First Look at the Canon Vixia HF S10. This is the heaviest and biggest and probably highest end of the new Vixia line. It cost $1400. It has 32-Gigs of internal storage that will shoot three-and-a-half hours of high definition video. But if you need more, it does have a card slot here, so you can always add more storage. You can also copy the video off of the hard drive on to the SD card here. It also has something called Video Snap, which is kind of a new way to shoot video. What it does, it stops recording every four seconds if there's no activity in the frame. That way you don't get long segments of video footage with nothing really happening. Then you can play those 4-second segments back and it's kind of like a video montage or a slide show with movement. You can also use it to play with the music that comes on the camera or put your own music on later. It also has an 8-megapixel camera and can shoot five frames per second. It cost $1400 and will be available in March. Again this is the Canon Vixia HF S10. I'm Natali Del Conte with CNET TV at CES 2009. ^M00:01:13 [ Music ]
At CES 2008, Natali Del Conte takes a first look at the Canon Vixia HF10 camcorder.
While it's more expensive than its sub-$600 competitors, the Canon Vixia HF20 and Vixia HF200 deliver a more extensive feature set for the extra money. The HF200, which lacks internal memory, is probably a better buy than the HF20, though the HF20's all-black body is a bit classier looking.
At CES 2011, Lori Grunin takes a First Look at the Canon Vixia HF G10.
The Canon Vixia HV30, an extremely minor upgrade from the HV20, remains a quality HDV camcorder with a couple of performance issues.
The Vixia HF10, Canon's first flash-based camcorder, delivers excellent HD video quality and performance in a tiny package.
The Canon Vixia HF100 delivers excellent HD video quality and performance in a tiny package.
Like its cousin, the flash-based HF11, Canon's Vixia HG20 delivers excellent HD video quality and performance, albeit in a slightly larger, heavier package. However, you get more storage space at a lower price.
While the Canon Vixia HF S10 is an excellent flash-based prosumer HD camcorder, you may nevertheless pass it on because it lacks an eye-level viewfinder.
While they're an excellent trio of camcorders, the Vixia HF S21, HF S20, and HF S200 are significantly more expensive than their respective competitors, especially since the S20 and S200 lack electronic viewfinders. If you can forego some of the subtleties of its manual controls, you can probably get what you need with a cheaper camcorder.
At CES 2011, Lori Grunin checks out Canon's newly announced top-of-the range camcorder, the HF M41.
