Overview

Memories to Share in Stunning HD

With built-in Wi-Fi® and amazing image quality, the compact VIXIA HF R50 makes it easy to connect to friends, family and the world by sharing vivid Full HD video of special occasions and everyday fun. The camcorder's huge 57x Advanced Zoom gets you the shot you want from virtually anywhere without interrupting the scene and with the SuperRange Optical Image Stabilizer video is clear and steady, even at the long end of the zoom and when you shoot while walking. Stunning 1920 x 1080 Full HD video from the 3.28 Megapixel Full HD CMOS Image Sensor and DIGIC DV 4 Image Processor preserves your memories with lifelike detail and natural color. You can capture up to 3 hours of video on the 8GB internal flash drive, or record directly to a convenient SD memory card for even more storage capacity. Built-in Wi-Fi®* is now easier than ever to use: share recorded video or live stream on your Android™ or iOS® device** and even control the camcorder remotely with the new CameraAccess plus app. And now with the optional new Camera Pan Table you can remotely monitor a wide 200° area on your device via Wi-Fi®, whether you're in another room or on the road. Moving subjects are captured with smooth, blur-free precision thanks to 1080/60p recording in MP4 (35 Mbps), and AVCHD Progressive (28 Mbps). Dual Recording lets you record in both formats simultaneously, and built-in downconversion creates easy-to-share MP4 files for the web. An improved Baby Mode gives parents easy, organized ways to capture the daily growth and development of up to three children. Just pick up and shoot: the mode automatically ensures the best quality for the given shooting situation. With an intuitive interface and 3.0-inch capacitive touch panel LCD, operating the VIXIA HF R50 camcorder is a snap, and with a high capacity battery pack, you won't miss an important moment.
 

Features

57x Advanced Zoom
You won't miss any of the action when shooting video with the VIXIA HF R50 camcorder and its impressive 57x Advanced Zoom range. 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 from 32.5mm all the way to 1,853mm (35mm equivalent) for extraordinary flexibility in shooting. For more convenient shooting and better creative control over your videos, the camcorder offers continually variable Zoom Speed settings, with 15 levels available.

3.28 Megapixel Full HD CMOS Image Sensor
The VIXIA HF R50 camcorder is equipped with a 3.28 Megapixel Full HD CMOS Image Sensor to capture your memories in true 1920 x 1080 resolution. Canon's advanced, high-resolution HD CMOS Image Sensor features extra sensitivity that delivers beautifully lifelike Full HD video with natural color, even in low light. On-chip noise reduction brings bright clarity to every frame. Video is rich, clear and amazingly detailed anywhere you view it, even when played back on a large HDTV.

DIGIC DV 4 Image Processor
The VIXIA HF R50 incorporates the latest and most advanced Canon HD Image Processor, the DIGIC DV 4 Image Processor, for exceptional imaging performance. 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 with the VIXIA HF R50 camcorder's Dual Recording. It also enables the built-in transcoding from AVCHD to MP4.

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. With no moving parts, flash memory technology is perfectly able to withstand camcorder jolts or drops. You can also record to a removable SD memory card, making it easy to share your video with friends and family. Conveniently sized and readily available, SD cards give you up to 64GB (24 hours) of recording capacity for a combined capacity of 72GB or 27 hours. For added flexibility, you can even backup your video directly to an external hard drive by using the optional UA-100 USB Adapter.

MP4 (35 Mbps) or AVCHD Progressive (28 Mbps) Recording
The VIXIA HF R50 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. This greater sense of detail and faithful rendering of moving edges, plus enhanced color and fine tonal gradation, gives your video everything Full HD has to offer.
