MP4 1080/60p Recording

The VIXIA HF R800 camcorder gives you high-quality MP4 recording. 1080/60p recording captures a large amount of information, virtually eliminating diagonal noise so even fast-moving subjects can show up crisply. This great sense of detail and faithful rendering of moving edges, plus enhanced color and fine tonal gradation, helps you take advantage of all that Full HD has to offer. Files are captured at a bit rate of up to 35 Mbps, so image quality is incredibly high.

57x Advanced Zoom

A long zoom range is important if you’re recording events where you can’t be in the midst of the action, like weddings and sporting events. The HF R800 comes equipped with an impressive 57x (32.5mm – 1853mm) advanced zoom so you’ll always be in the middle of the action even if you’re physically far away. There are also 15 different zoom speed settings so you can adjust how fast or slow you can zoom in and out.

SuperRange Optical Image Stabilization

Having a camera with a lot of zoom capability is great, but the image will get shaky when exposed to even slight vibrations when you’re zoomed in really close on a subject. Canon’s SuperRange Optical Image Stabilization software immediately corrects camera shake resulting from horizontal, vertical and roll movement so your footage will always appear smooth and steady no matter how far down the zoom range you are.

3.28MP Full HD Image Sensor

The HF R80 utilizes a 3.28 megapixel HD CMOS image sensor that captures video at full HD 1080p resolution. The chip also minimizes the amount of video noise in your footage, even when you’re shooting in low light environments, so your movies look as crisp and clear as possible.

Flexible Slow and Fast Motion Recording

The VIXIA HF R800 camcorder delivers flexible Slow and Fast Motion capabilities for a variety of customizable recording options. You can record slow-motion images at speed settings down to 0.5x, ideal for checking out your golf swing or creating movie-like slow-mo effects. Fast motion has a top speed of 1200x, recording an incredible 20 hours of action in a single one-minute scene. You can even choose new speed settings of 300x and 600x for added flexibility.

Highlight Priority Mode with Backlight Correction

Capture your memories exactly as you see them with the improved Highlight Priority Mode, which helps to prevent loss of detail in high brightness areas. Now featuring Backlight Correction, the VIXIA HF R800 camcorder delivers footage that’s more balanced and realistic, leaving you with beautiful memories to enjoy for years to come. Designed to be displayed on bright LCD TVs, you can show your videos at a high brightness setting for accurate and pleasing results.
