The LEGRIA mini X delivers outstanding audio thanks to a new, large (10mm) built-in stereo microphone. An improved two-layer structure of mesh cloth and sponge within the microphone, and the increased size, reduces background noise and static – making it ideal for recording conversations or interviews on location. The camcorder also offers a wide dynamic range, allowing it to faithfully replicate the silence of a concert hall (approx. 19db) before a performance starts, right through to the thunderous sound of the percussion section (approx. 125db) at its conclusion.
Thanks to its Linear PCM recording functionality, the LEGRIA mini X also delivers uncompressed, high-density audio and ensures sound sources are captured in realistic, CD-quality. Additionally, new terminals for headphones and external microphones provide increased recording flexibility – perfect for interviewing subjects or fine-tuning volume levels in noisy environments. For instant results, Canon’s Audio Scene Select technology includes a number of pre-set modes which, once selected, automatically optimise sound settings for various scenarios such as music or meetings.
The LEGRIA mini X boasts an innovative design that gives users the freedom to explore their creativity. Compact and light enough to take anywhere for spontaneous shooting, the device’s unique combination of an f/2.8 170° ultra-wide-angle lens, built-in stand and vari-angle 6.8cm (2.7”) touchscreen LCD screen makes it easy to capture footage from a range of angles1. With the flexibility to record completely hands-free, it enables users to easily participate in their own work, or simply gives greater freedom in directing and shaping scenes.
Canon’s renowned imaging technologies produce high-quality results that meet the demands of enthusiast videographers and filmmakers alike. Supporting AVCHD (1080/50i) and MP4 (1080/25p) recording, it harnesses the power of Canon’s own advanced DIGIC DV 4 processing platform and a 1/2.3” CMOS sensor to deliver video and stills in vivid quality, with minimal noise even in low-light conditions. New image stabilisation in Close-Up mode also gives users steady hand-held shooting and impressive results, whether capturing full HD movies or 12 Megapixel ultra-wide stills.
Built-in WiFi makes it simple to review and share videos on any number of devices or to wirelessly upload to social networks. Additionally, using a smartphone or tablet and Canon’s CameraAccess Plus application, filmmakers can now also control the LEGRIA mini X remotely and live-monitor events at home, simply by connecting the device to a home wireless network2. The camcorder can also be used with Canon’s new Camera Pan Table CT-V13, which enables users to control the device wirelessly via a smartphone or tablet, allowing 200° of horizontal panning. Coupled with the LEGRIA mini X’s ultra-wide angle lens, it can deliver a full 360° view.
The LEGRIA mini X opens up a world of creative shooting possibilities, with a range of fun recording modes that help turn simple scenes into dynamic and engaging movies worthy of sharing. For example, Time Lapse Recording mode with intervals ranging from five seconds to 10 minutes is a great way to tell stories over an extended period, while Fast Motion and Slow Motion Capture settings speed up footage to a maximum of 4x faster or slow it down to ¼ and ½ speed respectively.
