Canon Vixia Camcorders Get Touchscreens… Does Anyone Still Care?

by Range

The top of the line of Canon’s camcorder lineup now features a touchscreen version of the Vixia video camera. Are you impressed by this?

Well, I have to say no. I don’t know how long it’s been since I touched a camcorder. Who needs one when you can just use your cell phone or digital camera to shoot video?

Sure, the Vixia can capture 1080p HD footage, but if you are willing to spend hundreds of dollars on a video camera, then you can just get yourself one of the latest dSLR which will actually record incredible crisp HD video footage, and give you all of the lens capabilities of a dSLR at the same time. For example, Canon’s very own EOS Rebel T1i dSLR shoots 15.1 megapixel still photos AND 1080p HD footage and is available for under $750 (USD) these days.

Anyway, if you still care, the Canon Vixia HFS11 series of camcorders feature a 3.5-inch touchscreen, dual SD card slots, face detection, and image stabilization. The top-of-the-line models include up to 64GB of storage, and sell from $1,000 to $1,400 (USD). The entry-level models don’t have a touchscreen but start off at $550 for 8GB of storage and $690 for 32GB.
