|Camcorder Features Snapshot
Genuine Canon HD Video Lens with 51x Advanced Zoom
You won't miss any of the action when shooting video with the VIXIA HF R32 camcorder. The camcorder's wide-angle area has been expanded to 33.9mm (35mm equivalent), making complex scenes easier to shoot and adding more image to all your footage. Like every Canon camcorder, the VIXIA HF R32 is equipped with a Genuine Canon HD Video Lens. Canon's high definition video lenses use aspherical lens technology to achieve low chromatic aberration with high resolution while maintaining compact dimensions. Super spectra coating technology lowers flare and ghosting. The big news is the camcorder's impressive 51x Advanced Zoom. Long-range shooting allows you to create videos with dynamic variety, and is less likely to disrupt the action you're shooting. It's perfect for formal ceremonies, animals in the wild, candid family videos and more. Advanced Zoom, available in manual mode, has been achieved with more efficient use of the effective imaging area. It takes the camcorder's telephoto power all the way to 1,729mm (35mm equivalent) for extraordinary flexibility in shooting.
SuperRange Optical Image Stabilization
High definition video demands effective image stabilization, and the VIXIA HF R32's super powerful zoom makes the need for image stabilization even more critical. Canon developed its sophisticated SuperRange Optical Image Stabilizer to do the job easily and automatically, providing continuous adjustment throughout the entire zoom range to correct a broad range of motion. Extra compensation is applied at wide-angle focal lengths to eliminate the unwanted shaking that is common when walking. The system corrects camera shake instantly, so even when you're shooting handheld video at the long end of the zoom, the image is sharp, steady and smooth.
3.28 Megapixel Full HD CMOS Image Sensor
The VIXIA HF R32 camcorder is equipped with a 3.28 Megapixel Full HD CMOS Image Sensor for true 1920 x 1080 resolution. Canon's advanced, high-resolution HD CMOS Image Sensor has been improved for the VIXIA HF R32, with extra sensitivity that delivers beautifully lifelike Full HD Video with natural color, even in low light. Original on-chip noise reduction brings bright clarity to every frame. Video is rich, clear and amazingly detailed anywhere you view it, even when played back on a large HDTV.
DIGIC DV III Image Processor
DIGIC DV III is specifically engineered to optimize the imaging performance of the camcorder's HD CMOS Image Sensor. Images exhibit beautiful clarity with minimal noise. Gradation is richly rendered from highlight to shadow. Performance in low-light situations is superb, with natural detail and color. The advanced processing speed of DIGIC DV III powers many of the camcorder's cutting-edge technologies as well, giving you more creative freedom than ever before.
Record to Internal Flash Drive or SD Memory Card
The camcorder's internal 32GB Flash Drive holds up to 12 hours of crisp, high-definition video safely and securely. With no moving parts, flash memory technology is perfectly able to withstand camcorder jolts or drops. You can also record to a removable SD memory card, making it easy to share your video with friends and family. Conveniently sized and readily available, SD cards give you up to 64GB (24 hours) of recording capacity for a combined capacity of 96GB or 36 hours. For added flexibility, you can even backup your video directly to an external hard drive by using the optional UA-100 USB Adapter.
Record in AVCHD or MP4 Format
The VIXIA HF R32 camcorder gives you the flexibility of dual codec recording, allowing you to record in AVCHD or MP4 format, so you can pick the format that best suits your needs. AVCHD's higher bit-rate and finer resolution will yield the highest quality video for viewing on an HDTV or archiving to Blu-ray™. And for use with today's most typical video applications, the camcorder lets you record in MP4 format, too. MP4 format produces files you can share right away - with no need for conversion. Video is immediately available to upload to social networking sites like Facebook™ or YouTube™, or view on an iPhone™, iPad™ or iPod Touch™.
Connect Directly to External Drives
When it comes to saving your memories, the VIXIA HF R32 camcorder offers plenty of flexibility. In addition to traditional file storage methods, you can connect the camcorder directly to an external hard disk drive by using the optional UA-100 USB adapter to store video files safely and securely without a computer, an economical option for high-capacity storage on vacations or other trips. Using a USB connection, you can even play video on a TV via the camcorder.
3.0-inch Flat Touch Panel LCD
Big and bright, the VIXIA HF R32's 3.0-inch Flat Touch Panel LCD provides super intuitive control that feels instantly familiar. With a touch, you can assign focus to any subject, track focus on a moving subject, and control exposure for any area of the screen. "Pressable" buttons are also available for selecting settings and controlling camera operations on-screen. A new Home button on the camcorder takes you to the main LCD screen, where clear explanations of shooting modes and recording settings help you make informed choices for an exceptionally simple and enjoyable shooting experience.
