VIXIA HF R30 Review


The new camcorder range from Canon USA for 2012 includes the R3 range of 3 HD camcorders which includes the VIXIA HF R30, a Wi-Fi Enabled camcorder with 8GB of internal memory and ONE SDXC card slot.


Other big features of the new VIXIA HF R30 include a new Canon 3.28 Megapixel CMOS wide-angle Image Sensor for great colors even in low light, a 51x Image Stabilized Optical Zoom which is effective throughout the full zoom range, and a DIGIC DV III Image Processor.

For greater control over the recording times available, the VIXIA HF R30 lets you choose to record to AVCHD or MP4 formats. Choose AVCHD for making movies or archiving or MP4 format for uploading to social networks or movie making snippets.

Be aware of the available recording times of each format though. A 32GB card will record for up to 17 hours in MP4 format, but this drops to a maximum of 4 hours in Full HD 1920 x 1080 format. The single SDXC card slot will take cards up to 64GB.

Once you have selected your recording format, the Canon VIXIA HF R30 optimizes image stabilization automatically with Intelligent IS for the best shooting conditions from four different modes.

The Canon VIXIA HF R30 Wi-Fi feature gives you the freedom to share your clips direct to the social networks, watch wirelessly on a DLNA compatible TV or upload directly to a smartphone with the Canon Movie Uploader app.

The VIXIA HF R30 lets you switch to Smart AUTO for the best results from 38 pre-loaded settings from Auto Tele Macro or choose Cinema Look Filters for a whole range of effects, and with a pre-loaded choice of 27 different frame graphics clip art and animated effects, your movie production is only limited by your imagination.

The Canon VIXIA HF R30 also has 24p Cinema Mode for the Hollywood movie look or for networking, 30p Progressive is ideal for short movie clips. A Story Creator feature suggests a list of scenes and shooting tips for polishing your movie.

For the best audio quality from the VIXIA HF R30, microphone and headphone terminals are included, while framing is aided with a generous fingertip controlled 3 inch Flat Touch Panel LCD.
