Overview

The compact, lightweight, user-friendly and affordable Canon FS40 Flash Memory camcorder records brilliant video.

The numerous benefits of flash memory have been proven in its use in advanced electronic products such as laptop computers, MP3 players, PDAs and cell phones. The Canon FS40 records to both the camcorder's ample 8GB internal flash drive as well as a removable SD card. This dual flash memory gives you extended recording space and, as importantly, added flexibility in file transfer and playback - especially for sharing video on the Internet. The FS40 is also SDXC memory card compatible for added capacity. Adding to the usefulness of this camcorder is Quick Charge, which reduces the recharge time for the FS40's battery, and Pre-Record, which gives you a head start on capturing the action. With Canon Exclusive features such as Canon 41x Advanced Zoom and our DIGIC DV II Image Processor, combined with a 2.7" Widescreen LCD and our sophisticated Dynamic IS - you've got a flash memory camcorder that makes it simpler than ever to share even more of your life's special moments.
 

Features

Flash Memory
The ultra-sleek and compact FS40 allows you to capture video to an 8GB internal flash drive as well as to an SDXC-compatible memory card slot. Video stored on the internal memory can be copied onto the memory card which can then be inserted into your computer's or television's card reader slot for immediate viewing. Additionally, you can use higher capacity SD memory cards to further increase the video storage of your FS40. And with SDXC memory card compatibility, you'll have card storage capacity from more than 32GB up to 2TB.

Sleek, Ultra-Compact and Lightweight Design
The sleek, ultra-compact and lightweight FS40 measures only 2.1" wide, 2.3" high and 4.8" deep. This small, easy to carry camcorder will go with you everywhere you go, as it weighs only 7.8 oz.

Superb Image Quality
Great looking video starts with the images your camcorder sees, processes and records. Canon's legendary technology works together in the FS40 to deliver the best at every step. Canon delivers the best in standard definition video in the FS40. A Genuine Canon 41x Advanced Zoom delivers unsurpassed image quality. The 680,000 pixel CCD Image Sensor and Canon DIGIC DV II Image Processor captures video with vivid, intense, lifelike detail.

Dynamic IS
With the Canon FS40, you can be sure that even on the move your video will be smooth, steady and professional looking. Dynamic IS 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 that is common when walking.

2.7" Widescreen LCD
The 2.7" widescreen LCD on the FS40 lets you see more of what your camcorder is recording. The 112,000 dot screen delivers bright, clear detail and the widescreen format means there's no need to imagine what your final image will look like on your widescreen television because it's not squeezed into a small space while you're shooting. What you see will be what you get.

Connectivity
To maximize the usefulness and versatility of the FS40, you'll find an A/V mini-terminal to easily view the recorded video on your television. The FS40 is also equipped with a USB port for direct transfer of your video and photos to your computer for editing or online sharing. The FS40 is compatible with the Eye-Fi SD Memory Card*. It's possible to wirelessly transfer your video and photos to your computer, or upload them directly to online sharing sites in a few simple steps. Insert an Eye-Fi SD Memory Card into the SD card slot on the camcorder, configure your computer to select the target site (e.g., Facebook, YouTube, Shutterfly, Flickr) and you're ready to share your standard definition files with family, friends, and the world!
