Canon's VIXIA HF11 AVCHD Dual Flash Memory High Definition Camcorder brings professional level recording to the consumer camcorder market. Capture your child's first birthday or just spontaneous life moments in full 1920 x 1080 HD with this compact, lightweight camera. And, never worry about carrying around extra recording media - The HF11 has all the space you'll need with a 32GB internal flash memory that provides up to 12 hours of recording time (in LP mode) and a slot for an SDHC memory card for video or still images. The 3.3Mp 1/3.2 CMOS Sensor combined with Canon's own DIGIC DV II image processor ensure beautiful, clean and clear images every time you shoot.

Other features the HF11 boasts include 24p CINEMA mode, 24 Mbps recording and 30p Progressive mode for professional image capture. The 2.7" LCD allows for wide angle composition and playback while the SuperRange Optical Image Stabilization ensures video and still images are free from the age old problem of handshake. In addition, the Intelligent Lithium-ion battery and HDMI terminal both work to make your life easier. Finally, the Advanced Mini Accessory Shoe and microphone terminal provide two rarely seen, but hoped for features, at this price point.

Dual Flash Memory
Record to both the 32GB internal flash memory for up to 12 hours and when you need the extra storage to external SDHC memory cards. In addition, the video you record on the internal flash memory can be copied to the SDHC card and inserted into your computer or HDTV's card reader slot for instant viewing. You can also transfer still images from the SDHC card to the internal memory.
Genuine Canon 12x HD Video Lens
Canon's own Genuine 12x HD Video lens is a four speed zoom lens, meaning you can capture those far off shots, such as wildlife or close-ups that require a wide angle. The Super Spectra Coating technology reduces flare and ghosting to a minimum while the len's aspheric design improves upon resolution and reduces aberration for clean video. The neutral density system compensates for exposure when shooting in a bright situation.
1920 x 1080 Full HD Recording
Capture each and every image in true 1920 x 1080 HD. Your images will also be output and recorded in the amazing quality and clarity of full HD. Record at the highest AVCHD bitrate of 24Mbps. The incredible storage capacity of AVCHD allows you to record up to 12 hours in LP mode.
3.3MP Full HD CMOS Sensor
The 1/3.2" 3.3Mp Full HD CMOS Sensor captures full 1920 x 1080 HD images that boast excellent color reproduction and crisp, clean images. Canon's own low noise technology ensures beautiful pixels, even in lowlight situations. The RGB Primary Color Filter with the Bayer Placement Pattern provides rich, true-to-life color by separating the spectrum into red, green and blue.
Instant AF
The Instant AF feature provides you with automatic auto focus, ensuring that your HD videos will be as sharp as possible. An external sensor finds focus fast in any lighting condition. And, when shooting in manual mode the Instant AF magnifies your image 2x helping you to achieve the best possible image.
30p Progressive Mode
Capture video in professional looking 30p (recorded at 60i) for images that are especially well suited for use on the web. Sports and action shots also benefit from the enhanced quality of 30p. Improve your still images, after recording, as well, by using this setting.
2.7" Multi-Angle Vivid Widescreen LCD
Compose and play back all your shots with the 2.7" widescreen LCD on the HF11. The Anti-Reflection surface boasts improved color reproduction for a more life-like view of what you're recording. A wide range of viewing angles makes it easier for you to record in a variety of situations.
DIGIC DV II Image Processor
Canon's DIGIC DV II Image Processor provides improved color reproduction in HD for video and still images. Skin tones, lowlight situations and bright scenes all come out beautiful thanks to the DIGIC DV II.
SuperRange Optical Image Stabilization
This optical image stabilizer corrects for the inevitable problem of handshake and sway. Able to correct for a wide range of motion the HF11 provides you with stable, clear images for both video and stills.

    Canon 3079B002AA reviews

    VIXIA HF11 AVCHD Dual Flash Memory High Definition Camcorder is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 74.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked at the top of Kilimanjaro... We climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro last month, and the HF11 worked great. It's small and the internal 32GB flash memory make it a convenient package. The HF11 worked at near freezing temperatures at an altitude of over 19,000 ft. Camcorders with HDD won't operate at this altitude. The only con is that you have to convert from AVCHD to a more common format, but I'm willing to do that for all its other features. The video quality is great for a consumer grade camera, and it's low light capability met my needs. The larger sensor in this older model makes a difference vs. the smaller sensor in newer versions.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice camcorder, very easy to use I've had this camcorder for a few weeks now. Used it for numerous family videos plus some wedding footage. Very easy to use. Nice and compact. Looks great. AVCHD videos looks great in high def but I noticed the camera does need to be held very steady to avoid picture blur. 24mbps is the latest... it would be nice to see something well beyond this in the future. Could use a wide angle lens. I believe there's one coming out in May that comes with a silver/black finish to match. A little disappointed that all the 3rd party lights require a shoe adaptor, unless I'm mistaken. The Canon version is $120!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Will get what you paid for !! I was expecting a lot from HF11, since I spent couple of months reading reviews about it and comparing with other competing models mainly with Canon's own HG21 and Sony's SR12. After reading all reviews and looking at the showroom models, I thought HF11 showed a slight advantage in picture quality, features/technology and price. I was expecting an HD camcoder which will give you smooth & sharp video in low light situations with out much noise. That was not the case. The picture quality was OK, but not to my expectations. May be I was expecting the quality as of HD channels in TV, which was taken with very expensive video camreas. Bottom line, this is one of the best in its category but cannot be used for any kind of advanced video recording.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Camcorder For The Money! This has to be one of the best personal camcorders under $1000. There are too many reviews comparing this camera to professional and prosumer camcorders! Of course this isn't going to produce the same quality as a $4000 camera! And editing is a breeze with final cut. Just long and transfer, no need to render after dropping it in the timeline! If you're looking for professional quality video you need to look at professional quality cameras, but if you want great looking high definition videos for personal use, then this camera is great!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great cam for casual recording It's inexpensive, portable and has very good picture quality. The large built-in flash memory is enough for almost 6 hours of shooting with the 17mbps AVCHD codec. Great for filming kids on the beach and sightseeing trips. This is what I use it for. There are two drawbacks however - it's not suitable for any kind of in-car shooting or anywhere where there's unstable support for the camera. AVCHD cannot handle that, even if the optical stabilizer tries to help it. The resulting picture is really bad then. Another issue is the rolling shutter effect (jell-o camera), clearly visible with fast pans and when the camera is not held steady.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Small, light, and exceptional I use this camera as a multimedia journalist for several newspapers and magazines, and have little else but praise for the smart design, easy-to-use functions and overall value. While this camera has limited custom picture settings, the ability to quickly change the white balance, exposure, and frame rate is key. Haven't used the camera with the onboard microphone, but from what I hear the overall sound is decent. Overall I'd recommend this camera for anyone looking to shoot high quality HD without having to break the prosummer $2.5K level.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! We use this camera almost daily grabbing footage of our hilarious kids and other events. We leave it close to the action so we never miss anything. I bought an extra high capacity battery with the camera, but haven't had to use it yet. It works good in low light, it's extremely easy to use, the controls are easy and fast, it's small and light, and I can throw it in my coat pocket if I'm not using it. So far, there isn't a single regret, and there's no other camera we'd go with. We've had probably 6-8 Sony camcorders and cameras in the past, but I think we're going to be sticking with Canon for our camcorders from now on.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than Expected I had the camera for a few days, but taking in consideration that I work with digital cinema and own a very expensive and professional Sony HDW F900, I can say that I feel okay to say good things about the little HF-11, given my little time with it. All my comments are related to 24p recordings. Contrary to what I read, the HF-11 when compared to the HDV20, we did some close comparisons, looks slightly better. The picture looks sharper. Analyzing it on a professional monitor with the blue only activated. The HF 11 shows more artifacts, but strange enough it translates into a crisper picture. We did a bunch of comparisons shots against the HDV20, which already has a great picture. The camera is light and easy to use. I wish they had a higher bit rate. 24 is already good but the more the better, specially considering that you can change to 5 mbs per second and shoot more than 3 hours! The cons are cine mode, which decreases definition, stay away from it. Our tests showed a great amount of reduction in scenes shot in cine mode. That against TV mode where we can make sure the camera is running at 48 shutter speed, like film. TV mode gave impressive results. Nevertheless, make no mistake, a camera that does well 24p, most certainly will do more than fine in 60i(standard video rate). have fun with it!
