Canon VIXIA HF R60 High Definition Camcorder / Mfr. No.: 0279C001AA
Zoom Freely, Shoot Creatively
Zooming in on distant subjects without disturbing the action has never been easier! With the huge 57x (32.5-1853mm) Advanced Zoom on the compact VIXIA HF R60 camcorder, you can even shoot while walking with no fear of blur: the camcorder's SuperRange Optical Image Stabilizer keeps video clear and steady, while Framing Assistance makes it easy to keep your long-distance subjects in the frame. Built-in Wi-Fi® and NFC let you share what you've captured right away, transfer videos and images to other devices, live stream video, control the camcorder remotely, and connect to Canon's image management solution: the optional Connect Station CS100. The 8GB internal flash drive holds up to 3 hours of video, and you can also record directly to a removable SD memory card. Image quality is superb with the camcorder's Canon 3.28 Megapixel Full HD CMOS Sensor and DIGIC DV 4 Image Processor that capture 1920 x 1080 resolution, and with 1080/60p recording in MP4 (35 Mbps) and AVCHD Progressive (28 Mbps), movement and detail are beautifully rendered. Dual Recording lets you record in MP4 and AVCHD simultaneously, while built-in down conversion creates MP4 files for easy online sharing. Find exciting new ways to express yourself with the revved up new Slow & Fast Motion functions. And you can register up to 3 children in Advanced Baby Mode – the parental must-have that makes it easy to document a child's daily development. Shooting is fun and easy with the camcorder's big 3.0-inch capacitive touch panel LCD, and with a quick touch of the new File Lock Function, you'll never have to worry about children or other users accidentally erasing your videos.
57x Advanced Zoom
You won't miss any of the action when shooting video with the VIXIA HF R60 camcorder and its impressive 57x Advanced Zoom range. 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 from 32.5mm all the way to 1,853mm (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.
SuperRange Optical Image Stabilization
Canon's sophisticated SuperRange Optical Image Stabilizer corrects camera shake instantly, so even handheld video taken at long focal lengths is sharp and steady. Providing continuous adjustment throughout the entire zoom range to correct a broad range of motion, with extra compensation applied at wide-angle focal lengths, the Dynamic Image Stabilization system on the VIXIA HF R60 stabilizes rotational camera shake. Controlling rotational camera shake – horizontal, vertical and roll axis – helps ensure smooth, distortion-free video, even when you're walking while shooting.
