The Canon Legria HF R100 is an affordable HD camcorder with a 20x optical zoom lens. It is capable of capturing Full HD video at 17 megabits per second (17Mbps). The Canon Legria HF R100 uses a joystick interface in place of the increasingly more common touch-screen LCD. (If you're one of those people who hate touch screens, this can be considered something of a bonus.)
For still images, the Legria HF R100's CMOS sensor offers a maximum resolution of 2 megapixels. Video are stored using an SDHC/SDXC memory card slot.
The Canon Legria HF R100 will be available in March. Pricing is yet to be revealed.
