The ultra lightweight Canon VIXIA (LEGRIA) HF 21 Dual Flash Memory HD camcorder records to both its large 64GB internal memory for over 24 hours of crisp, high definition video as well as to a removable SDHC card. You have extended available recording space and more flexibility in file transfer and playback. The HF21 delivers brilliant video and photos through a Canon exclusive 3.89 Megapixel CMOS Image Sensor and DIGIC DV III advanced image processor.
When it comes to other features that enhance your video and still images the camera provides you with Dynamic SuperRange Optical Image Stabilization, an Auto Exposure System, Face Detection, and Advanced Video Snapshot Mode. Additional features include an HDMI terminal for one cable sharing on your HDTV, and a wireless remote control, along with many other bells and whistles for the serious shooter.
The HF21 comes with a high definition video lens - a Genuine Canon 15x HD Video Lens. It's the lens you need to record long shots of your child on the soccer field, wide shots of beautiful landscapes, and everything in between. And because it comes with four zoom speeds - three pre-set and one variable - you always get smooth, steady, professional-looking zoom shots.
Super Spectra Coating technology results in images with minimal flare and ghosting. Plus, the lens' aspheric design reduces aberration and increases resolution, ensuring crisp, sharp video - enhancing the HD image quality. As well, a gradation neutral density (ND) system gives you better exposures in bright shooting situations.
The HF21 has an Advanced AE System designed to provide the most accurate exposure settings in a wide variety of lighting conditions. This enhanced Auto Exposure, together with Face Detection and DIGIC DV III, captures an expanded dynamic range, optimizing brightness to avoid overexposure, while still preserving precious shadow detail.
The Night Scene Mode setting in the Program AE of the HF21 reduces video "noise" and helps to prevent overexposure of artificial lighting from buildings and streetlamps while shooting video outdoors in the dark.
