Canon VIXIA Mini Compact Camcorder - It's Perfect for bloggers?
On July 31, 2013, Canon announced the new VIXIA mini compact personal camcorder.

The creatively designed Canon VIXIA Mini Camcorder allows shooters to easily record their hobbies, special interests and memorable moments hands-free, and then share those videos and images on their favorite social networking sites or their own blogs via built-in Wi-Fi or via the free Canon Movie Uploader app.

Once a user has recorded their video blog, or a day at the park with the kids, it’s time to share the video or images with friends, family and fans. The Canon VIXIA mini compact camcorder comes with built-in Wi-Fi allowing users to quickly share their video and photos to social networking sites like YouTube and Facebook, or they can be sent directly to their PC. A user can also upload their video or still images taken with the Canon VIXIA mini camcorder from virtually anywhere by downloading the free Canon Movie Uploader app onto their iOS supported device.

The Canon VIXIA mini compact personal camcorder features an ultra wide-angle Canon f/2.8 fisheye lens (160 degree movies / 170 degree photos) allowing a user to shoot from unique and creative perspectives while including their surroundings to make their videos and images more interesting. By utilizing the Wide Mode users can give the viewer a full view of their surroundings and then switch to Close-Up Mode to provide emphasis on a particular subject. While in Close-up Mode, users can record a centered 1920 x 1440 resolution image with little distortion. They can also quickly toggle from one shooting mode to the other, or switch back and forth between video and image mode, by touching the camcorder’s innovatively designed 2.7-inch capacitive-tilt touch panel LCD display. Attached to the camera by two parallel hinges, the Vari-Angle LCD monitor allows for various shooting styles, including low-angle shooting, normal and high-angle-shooting and self-shooting.

The Canon VIXIA mini camcorder is equipped with a genuine Canon f/2.8 fisheye lens to give your videos a look that conventional camcorders and cameras can't match. The ultra wide-angle lens shoots at approximately 16.8mm with a 160° angle of view for video and approximately 15.4mm and 170° angle of view for still images (35mm equivalent), providing a panoramic outlook that allows the camcorder to capture scenes with you and everything around you. Whether recording in tight spaces or wide-open places, the unique perspective particular to a fisheye lens has you bursting as the center of attention. 

The look not only highlights your creative expression, but lets you see your talents – and show them to the world – in a whole new way. And a centered 1920 x 1440 image is also available to record videos with a more classic look.

The Canon 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 $299.99.
