Video

Supports Full HD Video

supports Full HD video

The Canon 125 HS supports Full HD video, which is unusual. Most of the other medium megapixel digital cameras that came out more than two years ago do not support Full HD video.

We compared all the other cameras which support Full HD video to this camera and we think the SLT-A35Y + DT 18-55mm + DT 55-200mm, and the SLT-A57Y both from Sony or the Olympus OM-D E-M10 which has better reviews is also worth considering.
