Canon VIXIA (LEGRIA) HF S20 HD Camcorder encompasses an unrivaled feature set. With a 3.5-inch High Resolution (922,000 dot) Touch Panel LCD allowing for greater ease of use, Touch Focus and Track, 32GB Dual Flash Memory with Dual SD Card Slots, and genuine 1/2.6-inch Canon HD CMOS Sensor, the Canon HFS20 captures breathtaking video. And 5.1-Channel Surround Sound ensures your audio complements the stunning realism of your video.
HF S20 32GB Dual Flash Memory combines large built-in capacity – enough for over 12 hours of HD movies – with dual SDHC slots for the option of recording to removable SDHC memory cards. Relay Recording automatically detects when one storage medium is full, and switches to the other.
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 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 HF S20’s Built-in 1.7x Digital Tele-converter retains excellent image quality. The HF S20 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.
A high-resolution 3.5-inch touch-screen LCD offers a 100% view for shooting HD movies. A unique, gesture-based LCD interface gives you fingertip access to shooting and playback functions, including Touch Tracking, Touch Focus and Touch Exposure modes.
For easier sharing of your movies, the HF S20 lets you convert AVCHD (MPEG4) files to smaller, standard definition MPEG2 files, ready for burning to DVD or uploading to the web.
A Custom Key lets you activate one of five variables that can be assigned to the manual Control Dial, including focus, exposure, and audio level. A remote control jack input enables the use of optional external remote controls.
An Optical Image Stabilizer with a new Dynamic mode lets you record steadier footage, even when you’re moving. Powered IS keeps footage super-steady when shooting at the telephoto end of the zoom range.
DIGIC DV III supports x.v.Color – for deeper, richer hues during playback on compatible HDTVs. 24p Cinema Mode matches the look of traditional film, and provides enhanced low-light shooting performance.
To maximize the usefulness and versatility of the HF S20, you’ll find a range of terminals to extend the capabilities of your camcorder. A built-in remote control terminal (compatible with LANC protocol) provides an easy connection to both Canon and third party wired remote controllers. The Mini Advanced Accessory Shoe allows you to attach optional Canon accessories such as the VL-5 Video Light, DM-100 Directional Stereo Microphone, or SM-V1 5.1-Channel Surround Microphone. Easy, one-cable connectivity to your HDTV is yours through the HF S20’s HDMI Terminal which also supports CEC and x.v.Color. The built-in Microphone terminal with manual audio level control and Headphone terminal provide exceptional audio flexibility.
