Canon just announced three new handheld video HD Camcorder range with three compact models for professionals and video enthusiasts. Two new professional X-series models, the Canon XA20 HD Professional Camcorder and Canon XA25 HD Professional Camcorder, combine a powerful, all-new imaging system with professional audio and Wi-Fi connectivity in a “versatile, compact package that fits neatly in the palm of a hand,” the company says. The Canon XA25 additionally features HD-SDI output offering the high capacity, uncompressed connectivity useful for many broadcast applications. The enthusiast-focussed Canon VIXIA HF G30 HD Camcorder comes with the same lens (with “optical intelligent IS”), OLED touchscreen and HD CMOS PRO sensor, Wi-Fi connectivity and full manual controls but lacks the XLR inputs and built-in infrared lamp of the XA models.
