selfie enthusiasts (or just about any YouTubers) rejoice cos’ Canon has just the right camcorder for you and it is called the Canon VIXIA Mini Compact Personal Camcorder. it stop short of being an action cam, but as its namesake implies, it is designed with self-videoing in mind. and no, though it looks like one, it is not a projector. as you can you see, it bears a rather odd form and for good reasons: it as such so that you can be the star of the video even without any assistance. packed within its compact form factor is a 12MP BSI CMOS sensor capable of recording high-bitrate MP4 files in Full HD quality and right smack in middle at the front is a f2.8 16.8 fisheye lens offering a 160-degree viewing angle for videoing and 170 degrees for stills. there is also a Close-up Mode where it is possible to capture a centered 1,920 x 1,440 resolution image with little distortion. a 2.7″ capacitive touch variable angle LCD display takes the guesswork out of framing self shots and also allows for quick switching between the different shooting modes.

other features include Canon DIGIC DV4 image processing engine, microSD card slot, mechanical shutter for recording moving subjects with little distortion, built-in stereo microphone with Audio Scene Select modes, two modes of Slow Motion and Fast Motion videoing, an integrated adjustable stand that offers up to 60 degrees of tilt, an automatic lens cover to protect the optics from scratches and dust, and most importantly, built-in WiFi allowing you to instantly share your video and stills to social networking sites such as YouTube and Facebook, or sends them directly to your computer. footages can also be uploaded via the free Canon Movie Uploader app for iOS devices and Live Streaming is also possible on your iOS or Android device using another free app, the Canon CameraAccess2. the Canon VIXIA Mini Compact Personal Camcorder will be available in September in a choice of black or white for $299.99. click through for a few more awesome look.
