Overview

Superb Imaging Revved with Intense Zooming Power  

Experience the compact, easy-to-use camcorder that has 8GB of internal memory to record up to 3 hours of breathtaking Full HD video while offering impressive zooming power and exciting new creative options. Superb imaging is ensured with a new, more sensitive Canon 3.28 Megapixel Full HD CMOS Image Sensor and Canon's exclusive DIGIC DV III Image Processor. Video is steady and clear even at the large end of the 51x Advanced Zoom, thanks to SuperRange Optical Image Stabilization and Intelligent IS. The VIXIA HF R30 is equipped with flexible features to suit your shooting and sharing needs, and a new interface makes the large Flat Touch Panel LCD simpler than ever. Record in AVCHD or MP4 format to the internal flash drive or to a removable SD/SDHC/SDXC memory card. Use the built-in Wi-Fi to upload video directly to YouTube, Facebook, your own home computer, or a DLNA-compatible TV. And with Cinema-Look Filters and Touch Decoration, you can be sure that your videos express yourself like never before.

Genuine Canon HD Video Lens with 51x Advanced Zoom

You won't miss any of the action when shooting video with the VIXIA HF R30 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 R30 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 R30'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.

3.28 Megapixel Full HD CMOS Sensor

The VIXIA HF R30 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 R30, with extra sensitivity that delivers beautifully lifelike Full HD Video with natural color, 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 color. 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 before.

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.

SDXC Compatibility

In addition to SD memory cards, the VIXIA HF R30 camcorder is compatible with super-high capacity Secure Digital Expanded Capacity (SDXC) cards. The same convenient size as a standard SD card, an SDXC card can hold up to 2,048 GB, and provides ultra-fast data transfer. It's an excellent option for family reunions, vacations and any time you know you'll require extra memory.

Relay Recording

With Relay Recording, you never have to worry about whether you're reaching maximum capacity on the camcorder's internal flash drive. When the internal drive is full, the system automatically switches recording over to the SD memory card. This reassuring backup system means you'll never miss capturing an important scene again.

Record in AVCHD or MP4 Format

The VIXIA HF R30 camcorder gives you the flexibility of dual codec recording, allowing you to record in AVCHD or MP4 format, so you can pick the format that best suits your needs. AVCHD's higher bit-rate and finer resolution will yield the highest quality video for viewing on an HDTV or archiving to Blu-ray. And for use with today's most typical video applications, the camcorder lets you record in MP4 format, too. MP4 format produces files you can share right away - with no need for conversion. Video is immediately available to upload to social networking sites like Facebook or YouTube, or view on an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.

Built-in Wi-Fi  

Built-in Wi-Fi opens up a world of new possibilities, giving you the connectivity and immediacy you expect today. The VIXIA HF R30 camcorder is a sharing device, ready to send your video wherever you like: delight faraway relatives with video of a wedding seconds after it took place; share video of your travels as they happen; post event-documenting videos online more. If you're in an Internet hotspot, you can post video to YouTube, Facebook, and other sharing sites. The free Canon iOS Movie Upload app lets you upload video from the VIXIA HF R30 camcorder to your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch virtually anywhere. And when you send video to your smartphone or tablet, you'll find it conveniently filed where your other videos are stored. Shoot video in your living room, and save it to the PC in your home office over your home network. Wireless setup with the VIXIA HF R30 is as quick and easy as it is with your other devices, and you can register and store up to three networks for immediate retrieval any time.

DLNA Compliance

DLNA, the Digital Living Network Alliance, is a standard designed to increase connectivity between consumer devices of all types and brands. The VIXIA HF R30 camcorder is DLNA-compliant, and now so are many HDTVs. That means that you can use your home network to access the video stored in your camcorder with the remote control of a DLNA-compliant TV. Even if your HDTV is not DLNA-compliant, the devices connected to it (including game consoles and Blu-ray players) may be, which will allow you to take advantage of this feature.

Connect Directly to External Drives  

When it comes to saving your memories, the VIXIA HF R30 camcorder offers plenty of flexibility. In addition to traditional file storage methods, you can connect the camcorder directly to an external hard disk drive by using the optional UA-100 USB adapter to store video files safely and securely without a computer, an economical option for high-capacity storage on vacations or other trips. Using a USB connection, you can even play video on a TV via the camcorder.

Intelligent IS

Intelligent IS makes it easy to shoot clear, sharply focused video, even in situations that typically cause camera shake. The Intelligent IS system analyzes the shooting situation for you, then automatically switches to the image stabilization method best able to produce sharp, steady video. Four IS systems cover the gamut of shooting situations. Dynamic IS corrects minor movement and the shaking caused by walking while shooting. Macro IS delivers perfectly steady close-up shots. Powered IS comes into play when you're using the camcorder's powerful zoom, correcting shake that can occur in telephoto shots. Tripod Mode stops IS when the camcorder is stationary.

3.0-inch Flat Touch Panel LCD  

Big and bright, the VIXIA HF R30'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 finger on a moving subject and the focus will follow that subject. "Pressable" buttons are also available for selecting settings and controlling camcorder operations on-screen. A new Home button on the camcorder takes you to the main LCD screen, where clear explanations of shooting modes and recording settings help you make informed choices for an exceptionally simple and enjoyable shooting experience.

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.

Cinema-Look Filters

Giving your videos more creativity is easy with new Cinema-Look Filters. Cinema Standard subdues brights and enhances darks for the feel of film. Vivid accentuates primary colors for a cheerful effect that's perfect for kids' birthday parties. Cool adds a bluish tint for a futuristic feel. Nostalgic recreates the look of 1970s TV shows. Sepia adds a distinctive fade and antique tint. Old Movies imparts the aged look of early cinema. Dynamic B&W creates dramatic high-contrast grayscale.

Touch Decoration  

Using the camcorder's LCD screen and an included stylus, you can embellish your recorded video freehand: draw graphics, write words, it's completely up to you! With a choice of 27 different frame graphics, clip art and animated effects, you can give your video a whole new dimension. New, easy-to-understand icons have been incorporated that make options for animated effects clear at a glance.

Story Creator 

Creating a compelling video that truly documents an important event can be challenging, so the VIXIA HF R30 camcorder steps in to help with Story Creator. The feature is even easier to use than ever, so now even beginning videographers can cover an event with confidence. Before shooting, you'll see a list of scenes you'll want to be sure to catch for several different types of occasions. And now each scene selection includes specific shooting tips that help with scene structure and composition, including suggestions for wide-shots, close-ups, even recommendations for length of shots. After shooting, you can watch your video in a coherent story order based on each scene's theme, as opposed to the order in which each scene was shot.

24p Cinema and 30p Progressive Modes  

The VIXIA HF R30 camcorder's sophisticated shooting mode options offer superior creativity and functionality. 24p Cinema Mode gives your video a film-like feel, making it look as if it were shot at the same frame rate as movie film, with a frame capture rate of 24p recorded at 60i. The camcorder also gives you the option of recording in 30p Progressive Mode, which is ideal for clips you intend to post online.

Microphone and Headphone Terminals

The VIXIA HF R30 camcorder offers exceptional audio flexibility with microphone and headphone terminals. The microphone terminal allows you to capture professional-quality sound with an external microphone and manual audio level control ensures proper volume for any situation. In addition, you'll find a dedicated headphone terminal, ideal for remote communication with the optional Wireless Microphone WM-V1 and other applications.
