There's a lot to like about Canon's entry-level Vixia HF series of "high-definition" camcorders, such as its user interface--which is better than that of its more expensive sibling, record HD video up to 1080p, on the cheap price, and the autofocus is reasonably fast and accurate in good light.
Until 2011, the most popular Vixia models are as the following:
|HF S||HF M||HF R and HV||HF and HF G|
|VIXIA HF S30||VIXIA HF M41||VIXIA HF R21||VIXIA HF G10|
|VIXIA HF S21||VIXIA HF M40||VIXIA HF R20||VIXIA HF20|
|VIXIA HF S20||VIXIA HF M400||VIXIA HF R200||VIXIA HF21|
|VIXIA HF S200||VIXIA HF M32||VIXIA HF R11||VIXIA HF10|
|VIXIA HF S100||VIXIA HF M31||VIXIA HF R10||VIXIA HF11|
|VIXIA HF S10||VIXIA HF M30||VIXIA HF R100||VIXIA HF100|
|VIXIA HF S21||VIXIA HF M300||VIXIA HV40 |
|VIXIA HF S11|
For Mac guys, most Vixia camcorders record in HD M2TS file which is not supported by Mac player and editor. I.e. iMovie 11 doesn't support Canon HF M2TS for video stabilization or Mac with an Intel-based Core Duo processor limitation.
