Flash MemoryThe VIXIA HF R100 allows you to record crisp high definition video directly to removable SD memory cards.

Stunning Image QualityA Genuine Canon 20x HD Video Lens delivers unsurpassed image quality. The Canon Exclusive 2.39-megapixel HD CMOS Image Sensor captures high definition video and photos with astonishing detail, while Canon’s Exclusive DIGIC DV III Image Processor provides the ultimate in color and imaging performance, with enhanced reproduction of difficult to capture purple and blue tones.

Instant AF (Auto Focus)A critical objective when shooting in high definition is achieving the sharpest focus possible. The VIXIA HF R100 camcorder features Canon's revolutionary Instant AF focusing system which offers a dramatic improvement in auto focus speed and accuracy, compared to traditional auto focus systems.

Dynamic ISWith the Canon VIXIA HF R100, you can be sure that even on the move your video will be smooth, steady and professional looking. The Dynamic IS system provides continuous adjustment throughout the entire zoom range to correct a broader range of motion.

2.7" Widescreen LCDThe 2.7" Widescreen LCD on the VIXIA HF R100 lets you see more of what your camcorder is recording. There's no need to imagine what your final image will look like on your widescreen television because it's squeezed into a small space while you're shooting.

Smart AutoSmart Auto makes shooting great video easier than ever before. Using the power of Canon’s DIGIC DV III Image Processor, the VIXIA HF R100 intelligently detects and analyzes faces, brightness, color, distance, and movement, then automatically selects the best settings for the scene.

Genuine Canon Face DetectionThe same high quality Face Detection technology used in Canon digital cameras is available in Canon high definition camcorders. Up to 35 faces can be tracked automatically, ensuring razor-sharp focus and natural, accurate exposure. Of the faces tracked, 9 detection frames can be displayed at one time.

Advanced Video SnapshotAdvanced Video Snapshot allows you to capture the highlights of a once in a lifetime trip or a family milestone with the same ease as taking photos. Simply record a series of short video clips – or select your favorite clips while in Playback Mode – and blend in your favorite background music to create an exciting movie that will hold everyone’s attention.

Easy File SharingThe VIXIA HF R100 is also compatible with the Eye-Fi SD Memory Card. It’s possible to wirelessly transfer 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, Shutterfly, Flickr) and you’re ready to share your photos with family, friends, and the world!

Built-in Digital CameraSince Canon is acknowledged as a world leading maker of digital cameras, it’s not surprising that the VIXIA HF R100, in addition to being a brilliant camcorder, is also a capable digital camera.

24p & 30p Frame Modes24p Cinema Mode enables all aspiring moviemakers to achieve a professional "film-look." You can change the camcorder's frame capture rate to 24p (recorded at 60i), which provides the appearance of the same frame rate as movie film. | You would normally have to look to professional video cameras in order to find a sophisticated tool like 30p Progressive Mode at your command. In addition to the standard interlaced video frame rate of 60i, you may choose to set the VIXIA HF R100 to capture video in 30p, (30 progressive frames, recorded to 60i) which is particularly useful for footage to be used on the Internet.

TerminalsTo maximize the usefulness and versatility of the VIXIA HF R100, you’ll find a range of terminals to extend the capabilities of your camcorder. Easy, one-cable connectivity to your HDTV is achieved through the VIXIA HF R100’s HDMI Terminal which also supports CEC and x.v.Color. A Microphone terminal with manual audio level control and Headphone terminal provide exceptional audio flexibility.
