Say Cheese: Canon unveils camcorder

Canon USA's a new family of high-definition camcorders -- Vixia -- made its debut Monday at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

The new Vixia F10 features dual flash memory. It lets users record to an internal flash drive as well as a removable memory card, so they can record even when the camcorder doesn't have a memory card inserted. Flash memory camcorders can read and write data faster than other types of storage. Canon says the HF10 Dual Flash Memory camcorder can record up to 6 hours of video to a 16-gigabyte internal flash drive, or to a memory card.

The HF10 Dual Flash Memory and the HF100 Flash Memory camcorders, which will be available in late April, cost about $1,099 and $899, respectively.
