Superb Imaging Revved with Intense Zooming Power

Experience the compact, easy-to-use camcorder that captures breathtaking Full HD video while offering impressive zooming power and exciting new creative options. Superb imaging is ensured with a new, more sensitive Canon 3.28 Megapixel Full HD CMOS Image Sensor and Canon's exclusive DIGIC DV III Image Processor. Video is steady and clear even at the large end of the 51x Advanced Zoom, thanks to SuperRange Optical Image Stabilization and Intelligent IS. The VIXIA HF R300 is equipped with flexible features to suit your shooting and sharing needs, and a new interface makes the large Flat Touch Panel LCD simpler than ever. Record in AVCHD or MP4 format to a removable SD/SDHC/SDXC memory card. And with Cinema-Look Filters and Touch Decoration, you can be sure that your videos express yourself like never.

Genuine Canon HD Video Lens with 51x Advanced Zoom

You won't miss any of the action when shooting video with the VIXIA HF R300 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 R300 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.

DIGIC DV III Image Processor

DIGIC DV III is specifically engineered to optimize the imaging performance of the camcorder's HD CMOS Image Sensor. Images exhibit beautiful clarity with minimal noise. Gradation is richly rendered from highlight to shadow. Performance in low-light situations is superb, with natural detail and color. The advanced processing speed of DIGIC DV III powers many of the camcorder's cutting-edge technologies as well, giving you more creative freedom than ever before.

3.0-inch Flat Touch Panel LCD

Big and bright, the VIXIA HF R300's 3.0-inch Flat Touch Panel LCD provides super intuitive control that feels instantly familiar. With a touch, you can shift focus immediately to any subject. Exposure for any area of the screen can be controlled with a touch as well. And with Touch & Track, you simply place your finger on a moving subject and the focus will follow that subject. "Pressable" buttons are also available for selecting settings and controlling camcorder operations on-screen. A new Home button on the camcorder takes you to the main LCD screen, where clear explanations of shooting modes and recording settings help you make informed choices for an exceptionally simple and enjoyable shooting experience.

Smart AUTO and Auto Tele Macro

Smart AUTO lets you capture clear, bright, well-focused video while the camcorder takes care of all the details. The system recognizes 38 shooting situations based on numerous factors, then automatically chooses the optimal settings for the situation. When you shoot a nearby subject in telephoto zoom mode, Auto Tele Macro gives your video the high-end artistic effect of a well-focused subject against a beautifully blurred background.

Touch Decoration

Using the camcorder's LCD screen and an included stylus, you can embellish your recorded video freehand: draw graphics, write words, it's completely up to you! With a choice of 27 different frame graphics, clip art and animated effects, you can give your video a whole new dimension. New, easy-to-understand icons have been incorporated that make options for animated effects clear at a glance.
