Genuine Canon HD video lens with 51x advanced zoom
You won't miss any of the action when shooting video with the VIXIA HF R300 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 R300 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.
3.28 Megapixel Full HD CMOS Image Sensor
The VIXIA HF R300 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 R300, 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.
Record in AVCHD or MP4 format
The VIXIA HF R300 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 R300 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 Movie Uploader App lets you upload video from the VIXIA HF R300 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 R300 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.
