VIXIA HF21

Support Flash Memory Camcorders

MSRP: $599.99

Features

<br/><br/><br/>The advantages of flash memory go beyond the added recording time. You'll also appreciate the quick response time, because it doesn't have to wait for moving parts. Press the record button and your VIXIA HF21 starts recording video faster than you've ever seen before. In addition, when you review your footage, it will come up more quickly.<br/><br/>Another plus is the VIXIA&#160;HF21's low power consumption rate, allowing your battery to last longer. It's just what you need so you don't miss that pivotal play on the field or the moment when they say "I do."<br/><br/>While we certainly hope you keep your VIXIA HF21 securely in your hand while shooting, if it happens to slip, or you accidentally knock it against something, you'll be happy to know that flash memory makes your camcorder more shock-resistant than other recording storage systems. It also minimizes the chance of data loss due to damage to your recording media or to the moving parts found in other camcorders.<br/><br/>1920 x 1080 movie recording requires a Class 4 or higher memory card. For other recording formats, a Class 2 or higher card is recommended. Also, movie recording requires cards with 128MB of memory or more. Cards made by Toshiba, SanDisk or Panasonic are recommended. No particular restrictions apply for still images. <br/>
<br/>-->* Dynamic SuperRange Optical Image Stabilization is not functional while capturing digital photos. Standard SuperRange Optical Image Stabilization will be in effect. <br/>
