The Canon VIXIA HF R21 is a high-definition video camera built for the consumer market. This is similar to the Canon VIXIA HF R20, but has an expanded internal memory of 32 Gigabytes for longer recording times. Video is captured by the 3.2 megapixel sensor in full 1080p high definition, and can work in 24p and 30p frame modes. Dynamic Image Stabilization ensures that hand shake is kept to a minimum, and Genuine Canon Face Detection sets the focus correctly and quickly. A Smart Auto function also takes care of other settings to account for the environment's lighting. Video is recorded to a standard MPEG-4 file, which can be copied to a PC or shared on the web. Playback to a high-definition display is also available with an included mini HDMI cable.
