canon vixia mini x review

Canon has a reputation for pushing the boundaries of digital camcorders. Its VIXIA series of camcorders are a great example of this. They have a unique look and interesting features that target a very specific audience. The Canon Legria Mini X is no exception. The articulating screen on this small camcorder lets you shoot video hands-free in a variety of different positions. It can be tilted up to a vertical angle for vlogging, or folded flat for easy storage. The camera is also equipped with a tripod socket and a built-in adjustable stand.

The camcorder records Full HD videos in the MP4 format and still images as JPEGs. It uses a class 4 SD memory card to store the files. The 12.8 megapixel high-sensitivity CMOS sensor and the Canon DIGIC DV4 image processor work together to create the Canon HS system, which can handle low light situations rather well.

It comes with a pair of stereo microphones for recording audio and there is also a headphone jack so you can monitor the recordings. It can also record high-quality linear PCM sound. If you want better audio quality, however, it would be a good idea to invest in some external equipment.

The fish-eye lens is a little uncomfortable for long, slow-paced scenes and can make your viewers feel uneasy. This makes the camera perfect for quick, fast-paced entertainment vlogging, or as a second camcorder to use in action and sports situations.
