A Genuine Canon 10x HD Video Lens delivers unsurpassed image quality and a smooth background for professional looking results. The Canon Exclusive 1/2.6” 8.59-megapixel Full HD CMOS Image Sensor captures video at 1920 x 1080 resolution and 8.0-megapixel photos with astonishing detail, while Canon’s Exclusive DIGIC DV III Image Processor provides the ultimate in color and imaging performance, with enhanced reproduction of difficult to capture purple and blue tones. Exceptionally lifelike tone and detail are captured thanks to 24Mbps Recording, which offers the highest bit rate in AVCHD. Even when shooting in extended telephoto range, the VIXIA HF S30's built-in 1.7x Digital Tele-converter retains excellent image quality. The VIXIA HF S30 not only captures images in Full HD, but records and outputs at 1920 x 1080 as well, so you get Full HD, from lens to screen.
