Overview

The latest member of the popular VIXIA mini series of pocket-sized camcorders, the new Canon VIXIA mini X offers a number of important professional features to ensure that your productions contain the highest audio and video quality. Key innovations include a large, built-in stereo microphone for clear recording with minimal noise using enhanced Linear PCM 16-bit audio at a 48 kHz sample rate, together with full-format 1920 x 1080 HD videos in both MP4 and AVCHD (60i) formats recorded to SD media. A variable-angle LCD with a built-in stand simplifies place-and-shoot recordings or self-shoot productions, with one-touch switching between Wide and Close-up modes. Electronic image stabilization helps reduce camera shake when shooting close-up during handheld shoots, while advanced built-in Wi-Fi® functions now support live remote streaming to video monitors for surveillance and other applications, in addition to conventional HDMI output to large-screen TVs. A new, enhanced battery offers 2.5-times the record time of previous models for extended shooting time.
