Video Performance* (10.5)*
The Canon HF100 is equipped with exactly the same imaging specs as the Canon HF10. For a detailed look at image quality, including lots of cross-comparison frame grabs, jump to that review.
The HF100 has a single 1/3.2-inch CMOS sensor with a gross pixel count of 3,310,000. The effective pixel count in video mode is 2,070,000. This is a new sensor for 2008, smaller and more densely packed with pixels than we saw on the 2007 models like the HR10 and HG10.
