Canon announced the release of two new camcorders Wednesday, one of which is the smallest HD camcorder on the market. The .97 pound Canon HV10 HDV records at true 1080 High Definition resolution and fits in the palm of your hand at 2 inches wide by 4 inches tall. Into that diminutive frame it fits Super Range Optical Stabilization, a DIGIC DV II image processor, a Full HD resolution CMOS sensor and “Instant AF” auto-focus technology. The HV10 HDV appears in stores in September for $1299.
The other camcorder on Canon’s slate is the mid-level DC22. Its X-Man power is to record onto Verbatim’s new dual layer three-inch DVDs. Where typical three-inch DVDs can record a maximum of 60 minutes, these can handle up to 108 minutes, all without replacing or flipping. The camcorder also features 10x optical zoom, 2.2 Megapixel CCD image sensor with RGB Primary Color Filter, widescreen HR recording and a 2.7-inch widescreen LCD display. The DC22, which will be available in August for $699, can also record onto ordinary three-inch DVD’s, which is a good thing since the dual-layer DVDs will not be available until September.
