Canon HF100 High-Definition Camcorder – HD movies your way!
The compact and stylish Cannon HF100 camcorder is one of the most talked about budget full HD camcorders on the market, and is capable of recording home movies up to 1920×1080 resolution.
The Canon HF100 is almost identical to the more expensive HF10 and features full HD recording, a big CMOS sensor with 3.3 megapixel camera, 12X zoom and a 2.7 inch multiangle LCD display. The main difference between the HF100 and HF10 is that the HF10 has a 16GB flash drive, whereas the HF100 has a SDHC card slot.
The HF100 benefits from Canon’s Super Range Optical Image Stabilizer and has four recording modes including 1920×1080 full HD and 1440×1080 modes. The Canon HF100 also features microphone and headphone jacks to take advantage of the audio controls and a HDMI socket so you can connect it directly to a TV for viewing.
Battery life is an impressive two hours with the included 890mAh battery and can be upgraded to three hours with a 1780mAh battery (sold separately).
Software is also included so you can edit and playback your recordings and even convert them to different formats.
The Canon HF100 is available now for around the £450 mark and is a great introduction into the world of High-Definition recording.
