The Canon VIXIA Mini X has seen a few updates over the first of the manufacturer's camcorders designed for bloggers and others that record videos of themselves. Probably the most notable of these changes is the upgrade in audio quality with Linear PCM sound and eight audio modes. Also new and noteworthy, Canon has added electronic image stabilization, embedded time code, and a 2.5 times better battery life. The Mini X shoots with a f2.8 fisheye lens with modes for wide angles or close-ups. For those that self-record, the Mini X is an excellent option.
