Camcorders are definitely not yet dead. At CES 2016, Sony in fact debuted one with 4K capabilities. Not to be outdone, Canon is also expanding its camcorder selection with new VIXIA models. The VIXIA HF G40 is specifically designed for what Canon terms as "advanced amateur photographers", delivering a foretaste of power without sacrificing portability. The new VIXIA HF R series members, the R72, R70, and R700, offer better usability and a longer battery life, perfect for capturing family moments and memories any time, anywhere.
