About Canon VIXIA mini X

The latest member of the popular VIXIA mini series of pocket-sized camcorders, the new Canon VIXIA Mini X offers a number of important professional features to ensure that your productions contain the highest audio and video quality. Key innovations include a large, built-in stereo microphone for clear recording with minimal noise using enhanced Linear PCM 16-bit audio at a 48 kHz sample rate, together with full-format 1920 x 1080 HD videos in both MP4 and AVCHD (60i) formats recorded to SD media.

A variable-angle LCD with a built-in stand simplifies place-and-shoot recordings or self-shoot productions, with one-touch switching between Wide and Close-up modes. Electronic image stabilization helps reduce camera shake when shooting close-up during handheld shoots, while advanced built-in Wi-Fi functions now support live remote streaming to video monitors for surveillance and other applications, in addition to conventional HDMI output to large-screen TVs. A new, enhanced battery offers 2.5-times the record time of previous models for extended shooting time.

Canon VIXIA mini X Features

  • Canon f/2.8 fisheye lens: The ultra wide-angle lens provides a 150deg. angle of view during AVCHD recording, a 160deg. angle of view for MP4 video and 170deg. angle of view for still images, allowing the camcorder to capture scenes with your subject and everything around them
  • DIGIC DV 4 Image Processor: A significant upgrade on several fronts, the DIGIC DV 4 Image Processor features dramatically increased processing power and captures more light, for brighter, noise-free images even in dark scenes.
  • Canon HS System: The VIXIA mini X camcorder features the Canon HS SYSTEM - a powerful combination of the Canon DIGIC DV 4 Image Processor and a 12.8 Megapixel High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor - that offers dramatically increased processing power and the ability to operate in lower light levels.
  • Flexible Recording For Your Production: AVCHD secures enhanced images at 1920x1080 resolution and 60i frame rate, while MP4 format is available in either 1920x1080 or 1280x720 resolutions at 30p or 24p frame rates; MP4 640x360 is also possible at 4 Mbps for live-streaming applications.
  • Linear PCM audio recording: The VIXIA mini X camcorder not only captures great video, but outstanding audio quality as well, thanks to its built-in, high-quality stereo microphone.
  • High-quality, built-in stereo microphone: High-quality, large-diameter stereo microphone captures enhanced, immersive sound that adds a heightened sense of stereo depth that further draws viewers into a video scene. A separate audio-level control ensures distortion-free recordings with no overload

  • Professional level support with features like embedded time code: Provides embedded time code for AVCHD-format recordings, which enables frame-accurate editing on professional NLE systems as well as the accurate synchronization of recordings from the VIXIA mini X with other video and audio recorders
  • Uncompressed HDMI output: Uncompressed HDMI output delivers a digital video signal with embedded two-channel audio in most camcorder and playback modes for live monitoring during shoots on a high-resolution 1080 monitor or large-screen TV.
  • In this way you can check how shots with multiple participants - including band recordings - are being composed, or how a particular scene looks when shooting a wedding or conference event.
  • Audio Terminals: Built-in stereo microphone, external microphones can be connected to the camcorder for extra creative options or enhanced fidelity. A separate Mic Level control adjusts recording levels; you can also listen to recordings as they are being made using external headphones.

A familiar touch panel lets you simply tap and swipe the screen in the same way as you might use a tablet or smartphone

  • Record in Slow motion or Fast motion: The VIXIA mini X makes it easy to add interest and excitement to your MP4 video recordings using classic special effects. You can now control the pace and rhythm of office presentations, for example, with a choice of Slow Motion and Fast Motion sequences.
  • Interval Recording: The VIXIA mini X camcorder's Interval Recording mode lets you see slow-changing movements over time. The camcorder records JPEG still images or half-second MP4 video clips at pre-determined intervals - 5, 10 or 30 seconds; 1 or 10 minutes - with playback in flip-book style
  • Higher capacity battery pack: Newly designed NB-12L battery provides 2.5-times the capacity as previous models, for extended record times & additional still images from a single charge. You can now accommodate continuous video recordings of long meetings or music performances up to 150 minutes long
  • Special Scene Mode: In The Car mode corrects exposure settings for passengers inside vehicles that tend to be backlit & as a result, normally are shot too brightly; instead, camcorder's settings are adjusted to be correct for dark areas so that areas inside the car will not be lost in the shadows
  • Automatic lens cover: Designed to be ultra-portable and ready to shoot in an instant, the VIXIA mini X camcorder's built-in lens shutter automatically opens when you turn it on, so that there is no need to remove and then keep track of a separate cap when the action begins.
  • Mirror Image Recording/Playback lets you flip the image horizontally: Particularly useful for practicing office presentations or checking your golf swing, Mirror Image Recording/Playback mode flips the image horizontally to let you view a scene in real time as you watch a recording.
  • Smart AUTO helps make shooting great videos simple: Smart AUTO streamlines the recording of high-impact videos by intelligently selecting the best settings from 23 predefined groupings, in addition to the Sports, Snow, Beach, Night, Food and Fashion, Macro, and new In The Car Scene modes

Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Ken S  Are there approximate maximum record times: per battery charge and per SD card for typical recording settings?
VALERIE A  We got about 6 hours of record time but that was with putting it on stand by. If you make sure you turn it off between uses (i.e. we were at Lego Land) then it will last for longer. I do suggest buying a back up battery though just in case!
Shopper  About when do we expect this Canon mini camcorder to be on the market?
Andrew R  I believe that this unit is supposed to hit the street sometime in March.
