Canon VIXIA HF R40 Digital Camcorder - 3 Inch - Touchscreen LCD - CMOS - Full HD

Quality and Easy Sharing Unite

With the compact, easy-to-use VIXIA HF R40, you'll see and capture the world in a whole new way through a Genuine Canon HD Video Lens with 53x Advanced Zoom. SuperRange Optical Image Stabilization keeps your video smooth and steady throughout the entire zoom length, while improved Dynamic IS helps keep your video sharp and blur-free when you shoot while walking. The Canon 3.28 Megapixel Full HD CMOS Image Sensor combines with the all new, ultra-advanced DIGIC DV 4 Image Processor to let in more light, allowing you to shoot bright and clear video even in dark scenes. Dual Recording allows you to record in AVCHD to the flash drive and MP4 to the SD card simultaneously, creating archival and easy-to-send video at the same time. Record in 1080/60p easy-to-share MP4 format (35 Mbps) and AVCHD Progressive (28 Mbps) for incredibly smooth and rich video of even the fastest-moving subjects. Built-in Wi-Fi® that lets you share anytime, anywhere, has been upgraded with Live Streaming, allowing you to view what you're recording remotely on a mobile device using the Canon CameraAccess app* - great for monitoring babies, shooting wildlife and much more. The significantly brighter, new 3.0-inch capacitive Touch Panel LCD gives you intuitive control with a light touch. New Baby Mode has everything parents need to shoot, organize and share chronological video of their baby's development, with a dedicated Baby Album, age, height and weight stamps and more.
