Features

Genuine Canon HD Video Lens with 51x Advanced Zoom
The camcorder's wide-angle area has been expanded to 33.9mm (35mm equivalent), making complex scenes easier to shoot. VIXIA HF R30 is equipped with a Genuine Canon HD Video Lens. The big news is the camcorder's impressive 51x Advanced Zoom. Advanced Zoom, available in manual mode, 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 R30's super powerful zoom makes the need for image stabilization even more critical. Canon developed its sophisticated SuperRange Optical Image Stabilizer to easily provide continuous adjustment throughout the entire zoom range to correct a broad range of motion.

3.28 Megapixel Full HD CMOS Image Sensor
The VIXIA HF R30 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 with extra sensitivity that delivers beautifully lifelike Full HD Video with natural color, even in low light.

DIGIC DV III Image Processor
DIGIC DV III is specifically engineered to optimize the imaging performance of the camcorder's HD CMOS Image Sensor. The advanced processing speed of DIGIC DV III powers many of the camcorder's cutting-edge technologies, giving you more creative freedom than ever before.

Record to Internal Flash Drive or SD Memory Card
The camcorder's internal 8GB Flash Drive holds up to 3 hours of crisp, high-definition video safely and securely. You can also record to a removable SD memory card. For added flexibility, you can even back up your video directly to an external hard drive by using the optional UA-100 USB Adapter.

Relay Recording
With 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.

Record in AVCHD or MP4 Format
The VIXIA HF R30 camcorder gives you the flexibility of dual codec recording, allowing you to record in AVCHD or MP4 format. AVCHD's higher bit-rate and finer resolution will yield the highest quality video for viewing on an HDTV or archiving to Blu-ray™. Record in MP4 format, which 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™, view on an iPhone™, iPad™ or iPod Touch™.

Built-in Wi-Fi®
Built-in Wi-Fi® gives you the connectivity and immediacy you expect today. Share videos over the Internet by signing up on CANON iMAGE GATEWAY* - an online photo storage service that lets you upload to YouTube, Facebook and Twitter. The free Canon Movie Uploader app lets you upload video from the VIXIA HF R30 camcorder to your iPhone®, iPad® or iPod touch® device virtually anywhere. Wireless setup with the VIXIA HF R30 is as quick and easy and you can register and store up to three networks for immediate retrieval any time.

DLNA™ Compliance
DLNA, the Digital Living Network Alliance, is a standard designed to increase connectivity between consumer devices of all types and brands. The VIXIA HF R30 camcorder is DLNA-compliant, and now so are many HDTVs. That means that you can use your home network to access the video stored in your camcorder with the remote control of a DLNA-compliant TV or other devices -- including game consoles and Blu-ray™ players.

Intelligent IS
Intelligent IS analyzes camera movement and applies the best shake correction method for the shooting situation.
