  Canon's VIXIA HF S200 is a higher-end HD camcorder with almost identical features to the HF S20 above it. The only difference is that this model lacks an internal flash drive. It sill has two slots for SDHC cards, allowing for a total combined capacity of 64GB. This model has a real-time autofocus system that uses an external sensor to improve focus accuracy especially in low-light conditions or tracking moving subjects. Its side display is also a touch panel with high resolution, and a touch-focus feature that focuses and tracks subjects when touched. With an optional Canon microphone attachment, this camera can record audio in 5.1 surround sound for playback on home theatre systems. It can shoot still images at 8.0 megapixels, as well as "video snapshots" for short periods of time, and has three selectable framerates for film, cinema, or frame modes. The HD lens records in 1920 x 1080 for full HD playback, and has a 10x optical zoom with optical image stabilization to retain quality when zoomed. Other features include face recognition and a light for darker recording conditions.
