Canon Releases the LEGRIA Mini

V-Bloggers rejoice as Canon releases the brand new LEGRIA Mini. Equipped with a built-in ultra-wide angle lens and stand for hands-free shooting, this small and sleek video camera also has Wi-Fi support for convenient file transfer and sharing, ideal for video blogging. 

“The LEGRIA Mini is designed for users who enjoy documenting their stories through videos and sharing them on the internet. Breaking away from the conventional camcorder design, the new LEGRIA Mini is small and light, has an ultra-wide angle lens, Vari-angle LCD touchscreen, built-in stand and Wi-Fi capabilities. It is the ultimate tool for recording videos and sharing,” said Melvyn Ho, President and CEO of Canon Marketing (Malaysia).

Taking a closer look at the features of this new device, the ultra-wide angle lens allows for dynamic videos even in confined spaces. Users are able to capture shots in a remarkable 170-degree view for photography and 160 degrees in video. In terms of video quality, the LEGRIA Mini uses a 12-megapixel high-sensitivity CMOS sensor and the latest DIGIC DV4 image processor for capturing the most lifelike details. Running at 25mbps, the camera can still record at 1920 x 1080 at 25p. 

For sound, the device features a built-in stereo microphone that can be adjusted optimally by selecting the appropriate Audio Scene Select settings, which include Standard, as well as for Music, Speech, Forest, Birds and Noise Suppression, great for environments with lots of external sound like playgrounds and moving cars. 

Shaped and sized like a small wallet, the LEGRIA Mini's design not only makes it easy to carry around, weighing in at only 160g but also allows for hands-free shooting using its built-in stand to hold itself upright. It also comes with a 2.7-inch Vari-angle LCD electrostatic touch-screen monitor that can be easily rotated.
