Product Specifications

Canon's technological innovation has for decades delivered optical excellence, advanced image processing and top performance, from photographic and broadcast television cameras to Canon's complete line of consumer camcorders. Canon is proud to offer its Canon FS22 dual flash memory camcorder. Lighter, more compact and user-friendly, the Canon FS22 brings you stunning video at an affordable price. As employed in advanced electronic products such as laptop computers, MP3 players, PDAs and cell phones, flash memory has numerous benefits. Canon offers dual flash memory, enabling you to record to both the camcorder's substantial 32GB internal flash drive and a removable SDHC card. It not only extends the recording space available, but also gives you added flexibility in file transfer and playback. You'll have a chance to catch even more of your life's special moments with the FS22. Adding to the usefulness of this camcorder is Canon's quick charge - which reduces the recharge time for the FS22's battery, and pre-record gives you a head start on capturing the action. With the FS22's Canon exclusive features such as Canon 48x advanced zoom and DIGIC DV II image processor, combined with a 1.07 megapixel CCD image sensor, image stabilization and a 2.7" widescreen LCD and Canon's quick charge feature - you've got a dual flash memory camcorder that's both hard to beat and unmistakably Canon.
