Features designed to maximise the HD video experience include a high-speed instant auto focus system for fast, precise focussing performance, while cinema mode enables the recording of movies with the look and feel of film.
The Canon HF11 has a 32GB built-in flash memory that allows over 12 hours of HD recording. Users can also achieve up to 24 hours of HD video by using a 32GB SD card (optional).
