Features

Genuine Canon HD Video Lens with 53x Advanced Zoom
The camcorder's wide-angle area has been expanded to 38.5mm (35mm equivalent), making complex scenes easier to shoot. VIXIA HF R400 is equipped with a Genuine Canon HD Video Lens. The camcorder's impressive 53x Advanced Zoom takes the camcorder's telephoto power all the way to 1,723mm (35mm equivalent) for extraordinary flexibility in shooting.

SuperRange Optical Image Stabilization
High definition video demands effective image stabilization, and the VIXIA HF R400'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 R400 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 4 Image Processor
The VIXIA HF R400 incorporates the latest and most advanced Canon HD Image Processor, the DIGIC DV 4 Image Processor, which is a significant upgrade on several fronts. The DIGIC DV 4 Image Processor captures more light, for brighter, noise-free images even in dark scenes. Dramatically increased processing power lets you record in both AVCHD and easy-to-share MP4 formats simultaneously.

Record Full HD Directly to A Removable SD Memory Card
Widely available in several capacities, SD memory cards let you share your videos quickly and easily.

MP4 (35 Mbps) or AVCHD Progressive (28 Mbps) Recording
The VIXIA HF R400 gives you the highest quality recording, whether you're capturing MP4 or AVCHD files. 1080/60p recording captures twice the amount of information as 60i, and with images captured at a rate of 60 frames per second, diagonal noise is eliminated so even fast moving subjects show up crisply with motion and patterns clearly recorded. A new bit rate of 28 Mbps is the highest in the AVCHD standard, and MP4 files are captured at a bit rate of 35 Mbps, so regardless of the format you're shooting or viewing, image quality is as high as can be.

Baby Mode
The VIXIA HF R400 features the new Baby Mode - a complete solution for capturing, tracking, organizing and sharing every precious moment of your baby's development. A custom control button on the shooting screen activates the mode, and optimal settings for the shooting conditions, including Intelligent IS and more, are automatically selected. Videos shot in Baby Mode are automatically saved into a dedicated Baby Album so they'll never get lost among your other videos. You can then view the Baby Album chronologically for a seamless way to relive and share your baby's growth with friends and relatives.

Smart AUTO and Auto Tele Macro
Smart AUTO lets you capture clear, bright, well-focused video while the camcorder takes care of all the details. The system recognizes 38 shooting situations based on numerous factors, then automatically chooses the optimal settings for the situation. When you shoot a nearby subject in telephoto zoom mode, Auto Tele Macro gives your video the high-end artistic effect of a well-focused subject against a beautifully blurred background.
