Mega Zooming, Steady Shooting
Genuine Canon HD Video Lens with 51x Advanced Zoom
You won’t miss any of the action when shooting video with the VIXIA HF R30 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 R30 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.
SuperRange Optical Image Stabilization
High definition video demands effective image stabilization, and the VIXIA HF R30′s super powerful zoom makes the need for image stabilization even more critical. Canon developed its sophisticated SuperRange Optical Image Stabilizer to do the job easily and automatically, providing continuous adjustment throughout the entire zoom range to correct a broad range of motion. Extra compensation is applied at wide-angle focal lengths to eliminate the unwanted shaking that is common when walking. The system corrects camera shake instantly, so even when you’re shooting handheld video at the long end of the zoom, the image is sharp, steady and smooth.
