Dual Flash Memory
Giving you not one, but two ways to record, the FS11 incorporates Canon’s Dual Flash Memory system. With 16Gb of internal memory – enough to store over 10 hours of Standard Definition (SD) movies – you’re always ready to shoot. Easily increase capacity on long days out by recording to removable SD or SDHC memory cards.

A designer style
The FS11 catches the eye with its refreshingly modern style. With no moving parts, flash memory is much smaller than other media types – that means the FS11 also has a stunningly compact design. Plus, flash memory stays safe against occasional bumps and knocks.

45x Advanced Zoom
The FS11 features Canon’s Advanced Zoom. Combining a genuine Canon video lens and powerful DIGIC DV II processing, the camcorder gives you an incredibly long zoom – up to 45×.

Advanced moviemaking
The FS11 showcases a range of powerful moviemaking features, helping to deliver superb movies: a Megapixel CCD, DIGIC DV II and True Wide High Resolution 16:9 recording.

Superior audio quality
Bring your movies to life with a great soundtrack – an input terminal allows an external microphone to be attached, recording the sound you want far more accurately.

Keep on shooting
Storing movies to flash memory has a much lower power requirement than recording to discs, tapes, or a Hard Disk Drive – in fact, you can shoot for up to 3 hours with the supplied battery pack alone. An Intelligent lithium-ion battery system shows you just how much recording time is left, accurate to the minute.

Digital stills
Capture high quality digital photographs. DIGIC DV II drives the camcorder’s photography features, ensuring faithful colour reproduction whether you shoot video or still images.

High speed transfer
A USB2.0 Hi Speed connection provides a super-quick way of getting movies and photos onto a computer – simply connect the camcorder via a single cable, then share.

Easy DVD burning
Easily burn movies to full size DVDs with the optional DW-100 – a one-stop solution for sharing your home videos. Then, simply watch finished discs on a standard DVD player.

Imaging software
Supplied with the camcorder, Pixela ImageMixer™ 3 SE allows you to organise, play back and edit your video clips, then convert them to alternative file formats. The software also offers DVD creation features – another easy way to share footage.
