Canon’s VIXIA camcorders go social for the new year, get improved low-light performance
It’s the most
wonderful horrible gadgety time of the year — it’s CES time. And that means dozens, nay, hundreds of companies issuing annual refreshes of their product lines. Canon is amongst the legions launching upgrades and its VIXIA line of digital camcorders are not getting left behind. The company’s M and R lines are both getting refreshes for 2012 that include boatloads of enhanced connectivity — including the ability to share over WiFi and DLNA. They can even connect to an iPad or iPhone and directly post clips to YouTube and Facebook using the Movie Uploader app. Under the hood is an all new CMOS sensor that has improved low-light performance and the HF M-series has selectable scenes not just for video, but audio as well, ensuring you get the best sound on your clips. The VIXIA HF M52, VIXIA HF M50 and VIXIA HF M500 camcorders are scheduled to hit shelves in March for $750, $650 and $550, respectively. The budget minded VIXIA HF R32, VIXIA HF R30 and VIXIA HF R300 will arrive at the same time priced at $550, $450 and $350. Check out the gallery below and the PR after the break for a few more details.
