Touchy feely

As you would expect, imaging giant Canon had no shortage of product launches at CES 2010. The one that caught our eye, however, was the VIXIA HF S21.

Not only is it HD - recording 1920x1080 - it has 64GB of internal flash storage and additional SD card options and can take eight megapixel photos.

The icing on the cake is the new 3.5 inch high res touch panel LCD screen. It enables ‘Touch and Track' technology, which allows you to select a subject you're filming and keep it in focus even in busy scenes.

Other fun additions include a HD-to-SD down-conversion feature, which allows you to convert footage into more manageable file sizes for things like uploading to YouTube.

The full family consists of  the VIXIA HF S21, HF S20 and HF S200 They are expected to launch in April, with a retail price of $1399.99, $1099.99 and $999.99 respectively.
