Canon's compact camcorder features full 1080p recording at up to 60 frames per second! It has a 3.5" OLED touch panel display to allow you to easily change camera functions. This camera also features dual SD card slots, 2 XLR audio inputs, and a 20x optical zoom lens with Canon's Optical Image Stabilization built right in. One of my personal favorite features is the built-in WiFi which makes the camera controllable through Canon's app. We include one Canon BP-820 Battery, one Canon CG-800 Battery Charger, and an AC Adapter (which can also charge the battery in the camera.)
