What makes the VIXIA HF11 stand out in the category of Flash Memory camcorders is its dual memory capability. You can capture video on both the camcorder's 32GB internal Flash drive as well as directly to an SDHC memory card.
Video stored on the internal memory can also be copied onto the memory card which can then be inserted into your computer or HDTV's card reader slot for immediate viewing. It is also possible to transfer still images recorded to the SDHC card to the built-in memory.
The advantages of Flash Memory go beyond the added recording time. You'll also appreciate the quick response time, because it doesn't have to wait for moving parts. Press the record button and your VIXIA HF11 starts recording video faster than you've ever seen before. In addition, when you review your footage, it will come up more quickly as well.
Another plus is the VIXIA HF11's low power consumption rate, allowing your battery to last longer. It's just what you need so you don't miss that pivotal play on the field or the moment when they say "I do".
While we certainly hope you keep your VIXIA HF11 securely in your hand while shooting, if it happens to slip, or you accidentally knock it against something, you'll be happy to know that Flash Memory makes your camcorder more shock resistant than other recording storage systems. It also minimizes the chance of data loss due to damage to your recording media or the moving parts found in other camcorders.
