Flash Memory Recording

The LEGRIA HF S21 allows you to record up to 24 hours of video to a 64GB internal flash drive or up to 2 removable SD memory cards. With Relay Recording, the camcorder automatically switches video recording from the internal drive to the SD memory card when the memory becomes full.

You'll also have the flexibility of copying video from your LEGRIA HF S21's internal drive to the removable SD memory card. That makes it easy to insert the card into your computer or HDTV's card reader and view your recorded footage immediately.

The advantages of flash memory go beyond the added recording time. You'll also appreciate the quick response time, because there are no moving parts. In addition, when you review, you'll have quick access to your footage. Another plus is the LEGRIA HF S21's low power consumption rate, allowing your battery to last longer. And if your HF S21 happens to slip, or you accidentally knock it against something, you'll be happy to know that flash memory makes your camcorder more shock-resistant than other recording storage systems.

Instant AF

The LEGRIA HF S21 camcorder features Canon's Instant AF focusing system which offers an improvement in auto focus speed and accuracy (compared to traditional auto focus systems).

In addition, a specific face may be selected as the main subject for continuous tracking. This feature can be used to search for clips featuring that specific subject's face. In search and playback, use of the Face Index will display frames with the chosen face as a thumbnail in each shot in which it appears. The selected face can be linked as a timeline to further identify footage containing that subject
