Canon VIXIA HFR42 32GB Flash Memory Camcorder

Genuine Canon HD Video Lens with 53x Advanced Zoom
You won't miss any of the action when shooting video with the VIXIA HF R42 camcorder. The camcorder's wide–angle area has been expanded to 38.5mm (35mm equivalent), making complex scenes easier to shoot and adding more image to all your footage. Like every Canon camcorder, the VIXIA HF R42 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 about the VIXIA HF R42 is the camcorder's impressive 53x 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 1,723mm (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 R42 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 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 R42 incorporates the latest and most advanced Canon HD Image Processor, the DIGIC DV 4 Image Processor, which is a significant upgrade on several fronts. 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.

Record to Internal Flash Drive or SD Memory Card
The camcorder's internal 32GB Flash Drive holds up to 12 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 96GB or 36 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 R42 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. A new bit rate of 28 Mbps is the highest in the AVCHD standard, and MP4 files are captured at a bit rate of 35 Mbps, so regardless of the format you're shooting or viewing, image quality is as high as can be.

Built–in Wi–Fi®
Built–in Wi–Fi® technology on the VIXIA HF R42 lets you share your HD video with friends and family anytime, anywhere. Connect with compatible home networks, wireless hotspots, and iOS® mobile devices using the free Canon Movie Uploader app*. Videos and photos can be easily shared over the internet with a free registration on CANON iMAGE GATEWAY#–an online photo storage service that lets you upload to social networking sites. And now you can use your PC to browse remotely through the previously shot videos stored on your camcorder, without connecting a cable
