HD CMOS Pro

VIXIA High Definition camcorders have a decided edge thanks to longstanding Canon expertise in the design and manufacture of CMOS Image Sensors. Their superb performance ensures Full HD video that is stunningly lifelike, with brilliant clarity in every detail.

Incorporating a proven technology in Canon’s professional level camcorders, our latest innovation, HD CMOS Pro is a 1/3” native 1920 x 1080 image sensor which delivers outstanding video resolution, superb low-light performance and a wide dynamic range. Unlike image sensors found in competitive consumer camcorders, HD CMOS Pro uses fewer pixels, which are significantly larger and more sensitive, resulting in optimized video performance.
