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...

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

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

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...
