Canon has always been the queen of the castle when it comes to camcorder image quality, and the Canon Legria HFS11
is easily one of the best of the bunch. If your mum knows her way around a camcorder and is keen to capture lifelike footage, this model is definitely worth the extra dosh. Equipped with an 8.1-megapixel 1/2.6in CMOS sensor, the Canon HFS11 produces some of the best video quality we’ve seen.
We were particularly impressed by the clarity of our footage, which was sharp and well detailed. It also performed well in our low-light tests, with the noise levels failing to obstruct picture clarity. The HFS11 uses SD/SDHC memory cards for added storage convenience. Videophile mums — accept no substitute!
