The Intelligent Lithium-ion battery which powers the FS21 is a major, and useful, advance. It not only more accurately tracks remaining battery life, it also gives a display in minutes remaining. It will allow you to better plan your shooting, so you won't be caught out with a battery that suddenly goes from "half" to "empty."
The Built-in Electronic Lens Cover means you never have to go looking for your lens cover again. Turn your camcorder on and the lens cover automatically opens. Turn it off, and the cover closes.
USB 2.0 Hi-Speed Terminal for ultra-fast transfer of movies and photos.
With the FS21's Microphone and Headphone Terminals you can attach an external microphone or headphones to more accurately record or monitor audio from a specific source, or to review audio in playback.
The FS21 camcorder is bundled with a powerful software suite. Pixela™. ImageMixer 3SE*> lets you play back your recorded video on your computer. You can also easily perform editing in which you can trim, reorder, and combine scenes, as well as add music, titles, and transitions. With the Pixela ImageMixer 3SE Software, you can burn a standard definition DVD to relive the memories on your TV.
