57x Advanced Zoom

You won't miss any of the action when shooting video with the VIXIA HF R82 camcorder and its impressive 57x Advanced Zoom range. Long-range shooting allows you to create videos with dynamic variety, and is less likely to disrupt the action you're shooting. It's ideal for formal ceremonies, animals in the wild, candid family videos and more. Available in manual mode, Advanced Zoom takes the camcorder's telephoto power from 32.5mm all the way to 1853mm (35mm equivalent) for amazing flexibility in shooting. For more convenient shooting and better creative control over your videos, the camcorder offers continually variable Zoom Speed settings with 15 levels available.

3.28 Megapixel Full HD CMOS Image Ssensor

The VIXIA HF R82 camcorder is equipped with a 3.28 Megapixel Full HD CMOS Image Sensor to capture your memories in true 1920 x 1080 resolution. Canon's advanced, high-resolution HD CMOS Image Sensor features extra sensitivity that delivers beautifully lifelike Full HD video with natural color, even in low light. 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.

DIGIC 4 Image Processor

The VIXIA HF R82 camcorder incorporates the powerful DIGIC DV 4 Image Processor for outstanding imaging performance. The DIGIC DV 4 Image Processor captures more light, for brighter, virtually noise-free images even in dark scenes. It also speeds up operation and enables steady image stabilization for clear images even when shooting handheld.

SuperRange Optical Image Stabilization

Canon's sophisticated SuperRange Optical Image Stabilizer helps correct camera shake quickly, so even handheld video taken at long focal lengths can be sharp and steady. Providing continuous adjustment throughout the entire zoom range to correct a broad range of motion, the Dynamic Image Stabilization system on the VIXIA HF R82 camcorder stabilizes rotational camera shake. Controlling rotational camera shake – horizontal, vertical and roll axis – helps ensure smooth, virtually distortion-free video, even when you're walking while shooting.

High Capacity BP-727 Battery PAck

The VIXIA HF R82 camcorder is powered by a high capacity Battery Pack BP-727. The rechargeable lithium-ion battery not only lets you shoot for long periods, but features intelligent technology that can accurately indicate remaining battery time for extra insurance that you won't miss an important shooting opportunity.

Record Up to 12 Hours of Video

The camcorder's internal 32GB Flash Drive holds up to 12 hours of crisp, high-definition video. You can also record to a removable SD memory card for easy sharing with friends and family. Conveniently sized and readily available, SD cards give you up to 64GB (24 hours) of recording capacity for a combined capacity of up to 96GB or up to 36 hours. You can also backup your video directly to an external hard drive by using the optional UA-100 USB Adapter.

3.0" Capacitive Touch Panel LCD

The VIXIA HF R82 camcorder features a 3.0-inch capacitive touch panel LCD screen that's bright and clearly visible, even outdoors in the sun, with rich, natural color reproduction. Its streamlined user interface makes choosing focal points, tracking moving subjects, and shooting and watching your videos easy and fun. Clear explanations pop up when selecting shooting modes and recording formats, so even new videographers can feel confident as they create impressive videos.

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.

Flexible Slow and Fast Motion Recording

The VIXIA HF R82 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.

Zoom Framing Assist Setting

To complement the VIXIA HF R82 camcorder's long-distance recording capability, Zoom Framing Assist helps keep distant subjects in the frame. When you're shooting at the long end of the zoom and you've lost your subject, simply press an icon on the touch screen and the zoom magnification will automatically decrease, making it easy for you to locate and zoom in on the subject. Available in Auto or Manual mode, Zoom Framing Assist helps you accurately track and capture your subject.
