Canon’s new consumer camcorder records 24p video

Until now, only professional video camcorders recorded video at 24 frames per second. Canon changed that at the CES show, announcing its new HV40 top-of-the-line consumer model.

The HV40 can now shoot 24 progressive frames per second. Native 24p allows users to capture and record 24 progressive frames per second to a HDV videocassette.

The camcorder also features a Digic DV III processor for improved image quality, 8-megapixel photo capture, advanced auto exposure, and face detection. There are a number of different storage options in terms of built-in flash memory, SDHC-only or HDV tape. According to Canon, the Digic DV III processor “delivers stunning color reproduction, clarity and enhanced noise reduction.”

The HV40 HDV camcorder offers a 10X HD video lens and 2.96 megapixel full HD CMOS image sensor. An add-on feature — called Custom Key Mode — enables users to assign commonly used functions to a single button on the camcorder for quick access.

No price or availability date was given for the new camcorder.
