Does Canon VIXIA HF R32 has a Wide Angle lens?

by jkkl1688 / December 15, 2012 2:56 PM PST

I want to buy a budgeted Camcorder with MIC interface. Both Sony HDR-CX260V and Canon VIXIA HF R32 has that. But Sony also spec CX260V has a 29.8mm Wide Angle Lens, whild Canon did not mention R32 has Wide Angle Lens.

R32 spec the lens as f= 2.8-89.6 mm, F/1.8-4.5. Is it considered to be a wide angle lens?

Thank you so much for helping.

"The camcorder's wide-angle area has been expanded to 33.9mm (35mm equivalent),"

Is that wide enough for you?

Hi, Does that mean the wide angle for Sony CX-260V (29.8mm) can capture more scenes comparing to Canon HF R32 (33.9mm)? Does Canon's lens almost like regular lens (35mm).

I want to buy one with wider angle, but am quite lost when reading f or F numbers. I really appreciate your help. Thank you so much!!
