Innovation for Simple, Creative Sharing
Whether you like to show off your unique talents, share your hobbies with other enthusiasts, or give the world the benefit of your special knowledge, the VIXIA Mini is the camcorder you've been waiting for! Super slim and weighing approximately 5.6 ounces (body only), the camcorder's innovative design is perfect for bloggers and anyone who likes to share online in creative ways. Shooting is ultra-flexible and can easily be accomplished hands-free. The sturdy built-in stand is adjustable, as is the touch panel LCD, so it's easy to find the exact shooting angle to suit your needs. The wide-angle lens captures expansive scenes, so your options are virtually endless. Thanks to the VIXIA Mini's built-in Wi-FiŽ, you can post video on social networking sites, shoot remotely and wirelessly stream to mobile devices.

Ultra Wide Lens for Creative Edge
The VIXIA Mini is equipped with a genuine Canon f/2.8 fisheye lens to give your videos a look that conventional camcorders and cameras can't match. The ultra wide-angle lens gives you a 160° angle of view for video and 170° angle of view for still images. The wide shots have the outer edge perspective typical of a fisheye lens, shooting at a focal length of 16.8mm for videos and 15.4mm for photos (35mm equivalent). And a centered 1920 x 1440 image is also available to record videos with a more classic look with Close-up mode, which shoots at 35.0mm for videos and 32.1mm for photos (35mm equivalent).

Wide or Close-up: It's Your Choice
Wide mode captures virtually everything within its frame. Expansive video shot in Wide mode has a 160° angle of view (170° angle for still images), adding a whole new level of playfulness and creativity at the edges. When you choose Close-up mode, you'll capture a cropped in, centered 1920 x 1440 image, which is perfect for emphasizing your subject. The best part is that you can toggle between the two modes at any time, simply by touching the LCD screen. Thanks to the camcorder's 12.8 Megapixel High-Sensitivity sensor, all images are in Full HD and beautifully detailed.

DIGIC DV 4 Image Processor
The VIXIA Mini incorporates the latest and most advanced Canon HD Image Processor, the DIGIC DV 4 Image Processor. A significant upgrade on several fronts, the DIGIC DV 4 Image Processor features dramatically increased processing power and captures more light, for brighter, noise-free images even in dark scenes.

Quality Video That's Ready to Share
The VIXIA Mini captures Full HD video, for smooth detail and superb realism that puts your viewer right in the scene. The still images you'll capture will be just as impressive thanks to 12.0 megapixels of resolution. Video is recorded in convenient MP4 format so it doesn't need to be converted when you play it back on your tablet or smartphone. MP4 format offers the quickest way to upload to blogs and social networking sites, too.

Superb Audio To Enhance Your Video
The VIXIA Mini not only captures great video, but superb audio too! The camcorder's slim design incorporates a high-quality, built-in stereo microphone so no matter where you're recording, be confident that you will capture audio that will bring your video to life.

Own the Freedom of Wireless Technology
Built-in Wi-Fi® on the VIXIA Mini lets you share your HD video with friends and family anytime, anywhere. Connect with compatible home networks, wireless hotspots, and iOS® mobile devices using the free Canon Movie Uploader app*. Videos and photos can be easily shared over the internet with a free registration on CANON iMAGE GATEWAY# - an online photo storage service that lets you upload to social networking sites like YouTube™ or Facebook®.
