(Manufacturer # VIXIA HF R30 )
Canon HD Video Lens with 51x Advanced Zoom
won't miss any of the action when shooting video with the VIXIA HF
R30 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 R30 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.
Optical Image Stabilization
definition video demands effective image stabilization, and the
VIXIA HF R30'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.
DV III Image Processor
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.
addition to SD memory cards, the VIXIA HF R30 camcorder is
compatible with super-high capacity Secure Digital Expanded
Capacity (SDXC) cards. The same convenient size as a standard SD
card, an SDXC card can hold up to 2,048 GB, and provides
ultra-fast data transfer. It's an excellent option for family
reunions, vacations and any time you know you'll require extra
Relay Recording, you never have to worry about whether you're
reaching maximum capacity on the camcorder's internal flash drive.
When the internal drive is full, the system automatically switches
recording over to the SD memory card. This reassuring backup
system means you'll never miss capturing an important scene again.
in AVCHD or MP4 Format
VIXIA HF R30 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™.
Wi-Fi® opens up a world of new possibilities, giving you the
connectivity and immediacy you expect today. The VIXIA HF R30
camcorder is a sharing device, ready to send your video wherever

memories, the VIXIA HF R30 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.
Intelligent IS makes it easy to shoot clear, sharply
focused video, even in situations that typically cause camera
shake. The Intelligent IS system analyzes the shooting situation
for you, then automatically switches to the image stabilization
method best able to produce sharp, steady video. Four IS systems
cover the gamut of shooting situations. Dynamic IS corrects minor
movement and the shaking caused by walking while shooting. Macro
IS delivers perfectly steady close-up shots. Powered IS comes into
play when you're using the camcorder's powerful zoom, correcting
shake that can occur in telephoto shots. Tripod Mode stops IS when
the camcorder is stationary.
