Impressive image quality, amazing zoom power and a host of convenient features make the VIXIA HF R70 camcorder a smart choice, even for parents new to videography. You can record up to six hours of video to the 16GB internal flash drive or to a convenient removable SD memory card. Revel in the flexibility and range of the camcorder's 57x Advanced Zoom, which helps you capture distant subjects without intruding on the scene. Image quality remains smooth, clear and steady thanks to a SuperRange Optical Image Stabilizer. Even keeping faraway subjects in the frame is easy with Zoom Framing Assist, now available in both Auto and Manual modes. A newly added Highlight Priority Mode helps give your video the rich range of color seen by the naked eye. The camcorder is as convenient as it is fun to use, with a new LCD screen that's brightly visible even outdoors in the sun and a redesigned user interface that makes it easy to shoot, navigate menus and view videos with large simple icons in a streamlined layout. Whether you're recording family vacations or your baby's first steps, the VIXIA HF R70 achieves image quality that's worthy of your precious memories.
You won't miss any of the action when shooting video with the VIXIA HF R70 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 ideal for formal ceremonies, animals in the wild, candid family videos and more. Available in manual mode, Advanced Zoom takes the camcorder's telephoto power from 32.5mm all the way to 1853mm (35mm equivalent) for amazing 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.
Canon's sophisticated SuperRange Optical Image Stabilizer corrects camera shake quickly, so even handheld video taken at long focal lengths is sharp and steady. Providing continuous adjustment throughout the entire zoom range to correct a broad range of motion, with extra compensation applied at wide-angle focal lengths, the Dynamic Image Stabilization system on the VIXIA HF R70 camcorder stabilizes rotational camera shake. Controlling rotational camera shake - horizontal, vertical and roll axis - helps ensure smooth, virtually distortion-free video, even when you're walking while shooting.
The VIXIA HF R70 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.
The VIXIA HF R70 camcorder incorporates the powerful DIGIC DV 4 Image Processor for outstanding imaging performance. The DIGIC DV 4 Image Processor captures more light, for brighter, virtually 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 R70 camcorder's Dual Recording. It also enables built-in transcoding from AVCHD to MP4.
The camcorder's internal 16GB Flash Drive holds up to 6 hours of crisp, high-definition video safely and securely. With no moving parts, flash memory technology is able to withstand most 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 80GB or 30 hours. For added flexibility, you can even backup your video directly to an external hard drive by using the optional UA-100 USB Adapter.
