The new VIXIA mini compact personal camcorder features an ultra wide-angle lens (Canon f/2.8 fisheye lens), full HD video, 2.7-inch capacitive-tilt touch panel LCD display and slim ultra-compact body with built-in stand, and built-in Wi-Fi.
The Canon VIXIA Mini has a 12.8 megapixel high sensitivity CMOS image sensor allowing shooters to capture and record full HD video in MP4 format as well as jpeg still images to a removable micro SD card. Users can toggle between two shooting modes, Wide Mode for a full view of surroundings and a Close-up Mode to record a centered 1920×1440 resolution image. The VIXIA Mini also records high-quality audio thanks to its built-in stereo microphone.
The built-in wireless technology allows users to share their video and photos to social networking sites like YouTube and Facebook, or they can be sent directly to their PC. A Live Streaming feature allows users to view, record and control the camcorder from remote locations on their iOS or Android device when they download the free Canon CameraAccess2 App.
The VIXIA mini compact personal camcorder will be available in black and white and is scheduled to be available September 2013 for an estimated retail price of $299. For more information, and a full list of product specifications, visit http://www.usa.canon.com/vixiamini
