Canon VIXIA HF11 1080p High Definition Video Camera

 

The Canon HF11 is a superb high definition video camera. It takes great videos, even in poor lighting, and is small enough to carry in your pocket. At $1,199 MSRP it is not the cheapest HD video camera out there, but it is certainly one of the best in...

Canon HF11

 

The Canon Vixia HF11 is, in many ways, a minor update to an already highly regarded camcorder. The previous generation HF10 produced some of the best looking video of the year, and definitely the sharpest. The new HF11 promises to outdo even that by...

A case of deja vu.

 

If you already own the HF10, there is next to no reason to make the switch to the HF11. Everyone else, on the other hand, would do well to seek this camcorder out.

Exceptionally sharp image quality, lots of manual features, improved 24Mbps bit rate

Too similar to previous model, joystick ill-suited to manual control

32GB on-board. Variety of available bit rates. Able to fiddle manually, or just shoot automatically. Great picture quality.

Square camera body can be fiddly to pick up. Battery life is a touch short.

It might not fit every hand, but the results it provides are excellent whether you're a manual fiddler or just want quick and easy automatic filming capabilities.

It’s very clear that the HF11 is the result of Canon having listened to the needs of many users in order to produce a high definition camcorder that ticks just about all the boxes on the list. We asked for an external microphone and Canon has...

Canon HF11

 

The HF11 Hi-Def camcorder records at the highest bit rate, 24Mbps, in AVCHD format. With a 3.3-megapixel Full-HD CMOS Image Sensor, SuperRange Optical Image Stabilization, Instant AutoFocus, a 2.7-inch widescreen LCD and 32GB of internal memory, it's...

A grand don’t come for free but this Canon is worth every penny. Progressive, maximum bit-rate Full HD and Blu-ray burning makes the HF11 about as future-proof as you could wish for. Canon HF11 is tagged with Canon and camcorder. Select a tag (Canon,...

Canon HF11

 

Light in weight and small but packs a punch when it comes to picture quality. You will not be disappointed at the wonderful clarity when shooting and then watching in H, especially on a large screen.D

None whatsoever.

Good picture quality, as photo 2.

If you shoot inside you have to shoot so far away to get people inside the image. So u need to buy lens.Battery last only 1 hour.
