The Canon LEGRIA HF R26 Dual Flash Memory HD PAL Camcorder (Silver) is a versatile mid-level camcorder for high-quality recording of full high-definition video at 1920 x 1080. The internal flash memory storage (8 GB) allows you to start recording right out of the box – or for extended shooting capacity, you can slide one or two SD, SDHC, or SDXC cards into the two slots. With a genuine Canon 28x Advanced zoom lens (20x optical), a high-definition 1/4.85" CMOS imager, and a Digic DV III chip for image processing, the LEGRIA HF R26 offers an end-to-end Canon imaging solution that lives up to the name.

Along with top-quality 24 Mb/s 1080i/p recording of AVCHD video (at 50 or 25 frames per second), the HF R26 also accommodates users who want to conserve storage by offering several alternative modes that offer long recording times. For those who want to upload video to the Internet quickly and easily, the camera features internal high- to standard-definition video conversion, so you can share clips promptly without tying up your computer for long hours. Support for Eye-Fi memory cards further speeds up the process of uploading.

The SDXC spec includes card sizes up to 2 terabytes, so as SDXC cards grow in capacity over time there's hardly a ceiling to the storage of the HF R26. The camcorder features Relay Recording, which automatically switches from the internal memory to the SD memory card when the built-in memory becomes full – and switches between cards without missing a beat.

The M32 gives you the option to record in 25p for a film-look. Or record at 50i for the best temporal resolution – ideal for recording fast motion. Other highlights of the HF R26 include a 3.0" touchscreen LCD for accessing the menu and playing back clips (a stylus is included for those with larger fingers), Face Detection with Touch & Track, an Intelligent Auto feature that chooses the best camera setting from among 38 different pre-loaded scenes, 3.3 MP digital still capture, and dynamic image stabilization, which is absolutely crucial for smooth handheld video.
