Genuine Canon HD Video Lens with 51x Advanced Zoom
You won't miss any of the action when shooting video with the VIXIA HF R300
camcorder. The camcorder's wide-angle area has been expanded to 33.9mm (35mm
equivalent), making complex scenes easier to shoot and adding more image to all
your footage. Like every Canon camcorder, the VIXIA HF R300 is equipped with a
Genuine Canon HD Video Lens. Canon's high definition video lenses use aspherical
lens technology to achieve low chromatic aberration with high resolution while
maintaining compact dimensions. Super spectra coating technology lowers flare
and ghosting. The big news is the camcorder's impressive 51x Advanced Zoom.
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 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
R300's super powerful zoom makes the need for image stabilization even more
critical. Canon developed its sophisticated SuperRange Optical Image Stabilizer
to do the job easily and automatically, providing continuous adjustment
throughout the entire zoom range to correct a broad range of motion. Extra
compensation is applied at wide-angle focal lengths to eliminate the unwanted
shaking that is common when walking. The system corrects camera shake instantly,
so even when you're shooting handheld video at the long end of the zoom, the
image is sharp, steady and smooth.
Naturally Beautiful Image Quality - 3.28 Megapixel Full HD CMOS Image
The VIXIA HF R300 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 for the VIXIA HF R300, with extra
sensitivity that delivers beautifully lifelike Full HD Video with natural colour,
even in low light. Original 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 III Image Processor
DIGIC DV III is specifically engineered to optimize the imaging performance of
the camcorder's HD CMOS Image Sensor. Images exhibit beautiful clarity with
minimal noise. Gradation is richly rendered from highlight to shadow.
Performance in low-light situations is superb, with natural detail and colour.
The advanced processing speed of DIGIC DV III powers many of the camcorder's
cutting-edge technologies as well, giving you more creative freedom than ever
Share Your Videos Quickly and Easily - Record to Removable SD Memory Cards

memory card. Widely available in several capacities, SD memory cards let you

SD card, an SDXC card can hold up to 2,048 GB, and provides ultra-fast data
3.0-inch Flat Touch Panel LCD
Big and bright, the VIXIA HF R300's 3.0-inch Flat Touch Panel LCD provides super
intuitive control that feels instantly familiar. With a touch, you can shift
focus immediately to any subject. Exposure for any area of the screen can be
controlled with a touch as well. And with Touch & Track, you simply place your

Automatically Beautiful Video - 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.
