CES 2015: New Canon VIXIA Camcorders
Canon brings in the New Year by announcing three new Full HD VIXIA camcorders: the HF R600, HF R60, and HF R62. Like their predecessors, the HF R500, HF R50, and HF R52, all three camcorders feature a 3.28MP CMOS sensor, DIGIC DV 4 image processor, and 57x Advanced Zoom with SuperRange Optical Image Stabilizer. What they add is a new Framing Assistance function that reduces the zoom magnification when the camcorder loses sight of your subject while zooming, making it easier to find your subject again; and new slow- and fast-motion recording that allows you to record fast motion at up to 1200x and slow motion at 1/2x speed. Additionally, the HF R60 and R62 models add NFC support to their Wi-Fi capabilities for one-touch connection with NFC-compatible mobile devices. NFC support also provides wireless connection with Canon's Connect Station CS100 image management solution for file storage and organization.
