LAS VEGAS – Digital-imaging giant Canon is to bring out a new HD camera that brings a new perspective to using LCD displays to edit on the go.
The Vixia HF G10 records crisp, high-definition video to a 32GB internal flash drive or directly to a 2 SDXC-compatible memory card slot for fast and easy sharing.
It comes with Canon’s HD CMOS Pro 1,920 x 1,080 image sensor. Canon representative Hugh Applewaite explained people can record HD content without needing to resize the movie or still. It comes with a 1.8 aperture and 1.5 LUX.
“It has face and object detection and can recognise anything that has contrast.”
Interactive LCD screen
One of the interesting features of the new camera is users just tap the screen to take pictures. They can also write onto the screen using a stylus and add various effects. It also comes with Power IS telephoto zooming and a new anti-shake capability, so steadiness isn’t affected when zooming in and out.
“We want people to be pros and get professional results without having to be a professional to use it,” Applewaite added.
He said the new camera will hit the market in March.
