The VIXIA HF R100 records to SD memory cards and features Canon's Smart Auto. A Genuine Canon 20x HD Video Lens and Dynamic IS works in combination with our sophisticated Canon HD image processing to deliver the sharp, vivid, lifelike video you want to see on your HDTV. Advanced Video Snapshot lets you create 2-, 4- or 8-second movie clips, with music, that are perfect for sharing. And advanced easy-to-operate control features of the VIXIA HF R100 help to make high-quality video that can turn the casual shooter into the family cinematographer, at our most affordable HD price.

Flash Memory

The VIXIA HF R100 allows you to record crisp high definition video directly to removable SD memory cards. Ultra-Sleek, Compact, and Lightweight, the VIXIA HF R100 is, at approximately 9.5 ounces and 2.4 x 2.5 x 4.9 inches, a companion you?ll always keep handy, while traveling or at home.

Stunning Image Quality

A Genuine Canon 20x HD Video Lens delivers unsurpassed image quality. The Canon Exclusive 2.39-megapixel HD CMOS Image Sensor captures high definition video and photos with astonishing detail, while Canon?s Exclusive DIGIC DV III Image Processor provides the ultimate in color and imaging performance, with enhanced reproduction of difficult to capture purple and blue tones.

Dynamic IS

With the Canon VIXIA HF R100, you can be sure that even on the move your video will be smooth, steady and professional looking. The Dynamic IS system provides continuous adjustment throughout the entire zoom range to correct a broader range of motion. In comparison to conventional electronic image stabilization systems, extra compensation is applied at wide-angle focal lengths to eliminate unwanted vibration common when shooting while walking.

2.7" Widescreen LCD

The 2.7" Widescreen LCD on the VIXIA HF R100 lets you see more of what your camcorder is recording. There's no need to imagine what your final image will look like on your widescreen television because it's squeezed into a small space while you're shooting.

Smart Auto

Smart Auto makes shooting great video easier than ever before. Using the power of Canon?s DIGIC DV III Image Processor, the VIXIA HF R100 intelligently detects and analyzes faces, brightness, color, distance, and movement, then automatically selects the best settings for the scene. Whether you are capturing a sunset, a day at the beach, or a fast-paced soccer game, Smart Auto delivers exceptionally accurate results.

Genuine Canon Face Detection

The same high quality Face Detection technology used in Canon digital cameras is available in Canon high definition camcorders. Up to 35 faces can be tracked automatically, ensuring razor-sharp focus and natural, accurate exposure. Of the faces tracked, 9 detection frames can be displayed at one time.

Advanced Video Snapshot

Advanced Video Snapshot allows you to capture the highlights of a once in a lifetime trip or a family milestone with the same ease as taking photos. Simply record a series of short video clips ? or select your favorite clips while in Playback Mode ? and blend in your favorite background music to create an exciting movie that will hold everyone?s attention. This version of Advanced Video Snapshot allows selectable recording time of 2, 4, or 8 seconds. Additionally, audio from an external source, such as an MP3 player, can be played along with the snapshot movie and playback can be controlled from that source.

24p & 30p Frame Modes

24p Cinema Mode enables all aspiring moviemakers to achieve a professional "film-look." You can change the camcorder's frame capture rate to 24p (recorded at 60i), which provides the appearance of the same frame rate as movie film. In addition, you can use the VIXIA HF R100's CINE mode, which changes the color and tonal characteristics, evoking the look and feel of a movie shown in a theater. For added flexibility, these settings can be used together or independently.
