With its own 32GB of internal memory, Canon's VIXIA HF R82 Camcorder is ready to record 1080p Full HD footage out-of-the-box. Whether you're recording home videos, events, or recitals, the 57x Advanced Zoom ensures that you can get the shot from the back rows of an auditorium if need be while the Super Range O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilization) keeps the image steady at longer focal lengths. HD videos are recorded to the internal memory or separately available SD cards in the MP4 format for easy playback on most devices. MP4 files are also highly compatible with video hosting services and social media websites without format conversion.

Introduced with the HF R82 is backlight correction within the Highlight Priority mode for brighter images. The backlight correction analyzes the incoming video signal and recognizes your subject within the frame, and will expose for the subject, rather than an overexposed backlit background. This way if the sun is behind your subject, you can still get a vibrant image.

3.28MP Full HD CMOS Image Sensor

This model is equipped with a 3.28MP Full HD CMOS image sensor that supports 1920 x 1080 resolution video capture. Canon's high-resolution HD CMOS sensor features extra sensitivity that delivers lifelike Full HD video with natural color, even in low light. On-chip noise reduction supports clarity in every frame, which means your video and photos will be vivid, clear, even when played back on a large HDTV.

DIGIC DV 4 Image Processor

This camcorder incorporates an advanced Canon HD DIGIC DV 4 image processor for enhanced imaging performance even when shooting handheld or in low light.

Internal 32GB Flash Memory & SD/SDHC/SDXC Memory Card Slot

The camcorder's internal 32GB flash memory holds up to 12 hours of HD video. With no moving parts, flash memory technology can withstand camcorder jolts and drops. You can also record to a removable SD/SDHC/SDXC memory card, making it easy to share your video with friends and family.

Slow & Fast Motion Recording

Record fast motion at up to 1200x and slow motion at 1/2x for increased creative possibilities.

Built-In Wi-Fi / NFC

Built-in Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity lets you share your HD video with friends and family anytime, anywhere. Connect with your compatible iOS or Android mobile devices using the free Canon Window app to easily transfer and then share your videos and photos to social networking sites. With Live Streaming support, you can also record and view live video on your compatible Android or iOS device using the CameraAccess Plus app, and even control your camcorder from a remote location.

Compatibility with Optional CT-V1 Camera Pan Table

The camcorder is compatible with the optional CT-V1 Camera Pan Table accessory. With your Wi-Fi enabled camcorder mounted on the CT-V1, you can remotely pan the camcorder up to 200° from a compatible iOS or Android device.

Powerful 57x Advanced Zoom

Thanks to an impressive 57x Advanced Zoom range, long-range shooting is not a problem. You'll be able to create videos with dynamic variety, and you'll be less likely to disrupt the action you're shooting. The Advanced Zoom works well for a variety of situations including formal ceremonies, recording animals in the wild, candid family videos, and more. The Advanced Zoom is available in manual mode and has been achieved with more efficient use of the effective imaging area. It takes the camcorder's focal length from 32.5mm all the way to 1853mm (35mm equivalent), which provides extraordinary flexibility in shooting.

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 this camcorder stabilizes rotational camera shake. Controlling horizontal, vertical, and roll axis rotational camera shake ensures smooth, distortion-free video, even when you're walking while shooting.

Highlight Priority Mode

The Highlight Priority Mode is a gamma setting that gives an HDR-like quality to your video. By reducing the mid to high-brightness compression of the standard gamma mode, the Highlight Priority mode helps prevent loss of detail in high-brightness areas. Highlight Priority mode in the HF R82 is bolstered by backlight correction which delivers a correctly exposed image, even with a bright background. Designed for display on a bright LCD TV, videos captured in Highlight Priority mode should be shown at a high-brightness setting to help ensure an accurate portrayal of the effect.

Capacitive 3" Touch Panel LCD

A capacitive 3" touch panel LCD screen that makes recording and other operations easy. Open the panel and the power is on. A gentle touch activates the display's intuitive functions. Choose a focal point, track moving subjects, control exposure for selected areas, and operate camcorder controls from the screen, all with a touch. In addition, the easy-to-use user interface makes your shooting experience simpler. The Home button is on the menu screen and provides quick access to all functions. Clear explanations for key settings pop up when selecting shooting modes and recording formats, so you can be confident in the decisions you make.

Framing Assistance Function

When you're shooting at the long end of the zoom and you've lost your subject, simply press the Framing Assistance icon on the touchscreen and the zoom magnification will automatically decrease, making it easy for you to locate the subject and zoom in on it again.

File Lock Function

With one simple setting, you can keep your videos safe from any accidental operational errors. The File Lock function disables deletion, dividing, trimming, copying, MP4 conversion, and thumbnail changes with a touch, giving you peace of mind when children or others use your camcorder.

Camera Window Software

Camera Window software is available as a downloadable application. The software makes it easy to import MP4 and JPEG files from your VIXIA camcorder to a PC or Mac, where they can be shared and edited.

Are there any larger batteries for it?

Are there any larger batteries for it?
Asked by: CLYDE
The thought never crossed my mind. I have two batteries and the combined time works for me. However, knowing that a larger battery would be heavier and more bulky, it might defeat the reason we buy small cameras. Looking at it, the only way to go is longer. At the back, making the back of the camera heavier than the rest of the camera. Not at all a good fit.

can I connect line level audio signal to the mic input?
Asked by: Jimmy
I haven't checked the manual, but IIRC, no. It is never a good idea to connect a mike to the line input or vice versa. The impedance is usually an order of magnitude different or more. The high impedance input will barely be audible on the low impedance connection, and the low will overload the high. I just don't recall which is which at the moment.

Does this camera provide the power to plugin microphones that use a very small voltage about 3V or less such as the Rode VideoMicro ? (Thanks.)

question

Can I connect this camera directly to the wall plug (electrical wall outlet) to get the power from the wall plug instead of using the battery ? In this scenario, I still keep the battery plugged into the camcorder, and at the same time, use the wire to connect the camcorder to the wall plug to get the power from the wall plug. Does it work that way ? (Thanks)
Asked by: Thanh
This camcorder may be operated with the battery installed, while connected to AC wall current.
