Other than new VIXIA HD camcoder models, Canon introduces also new standard definition camcorders, including flash-based FS22, FS21, FS200; DVD-based DC420 and DC410, and ZR960 MiniDV camcorders.
The Canon FS22 and Canon FS21 are basically the same except that the former has 32GB flash memory while the latter gets 16GB. Both of them feature a 1.07 Megapixel CCD image sensor, 48X Advance Zoom lens, 2000x digital zoom, a 2.7-inch LCD display, Dolby Digital 2 ch audio and a 3.5mm stereo jack. They both have a SD/SDHC card slot for expansion.
Canon’s FS200, unlike the above two models, comes without internal memory but only a SD/SDHC memory card slot. FS200 has a 0.68 Megapixel image sensor, 41x Advanced Zoom lens, 2000x digital zoom, a 2.7-inch LCD display. It is available in Blue, Red and Silver.
Canon FS22, FS21 and FS200 will be released in January 2009.
