    VIXIA HF R72

    The VIXIA HF R72 camcorder makes it easy to capture high–quality, creative Full HD video with amazing zoom power for up to 12 hours. Record subjects near and far with a remarkable 57x Advanced Zoom that lets you capture the shot you want without interrupting the scene, and a SuperRange Optical Image Stabilizer that helps keep your video smooth, clear and steady even if you shoot while walking. You can record to the 32GB internal flash drive or directly to a removable SD memory card for flexibility and convenience. Zoom Framing Assist keeps it simple by helping to prevent you from losing a distant subject while shooting, and now features both Auto and Manual modes for expanded versatility. Newly added features include a Highlight Priority mode which helps recreate the rich range of color seen by the naked eye, as well as a redesigned LCD screen that stays bright and clear even outdoors. What's more, it also has a new user interface with a layout that makes shooting, navigating menus and viewing your video simple and fun, right from the start. Ideal for families to take on trips, sports games, school performances and more, the VIXIA HF R72 can help you record fantastic videos you'll treasure for years.

    57x Advanced Zoom

    You won't miss any of the action when shooting video with the VIXIA HF R72 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.

    SuperRange Optical Image Stabilization

    Canon's sophisticated SuperRange Optical Image Stabilizer corrects camera shake quickly, 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 the VIXIA HF R72 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.

    3.28 Megapixel Full HD CMOS Image Sensor

    The VIXIA HF R72 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.

    1920 x 1080 Resolution

    The VIXIA HF R72 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. Dramatically increased processing power lets you record in both AVCHD and easy–to–share MP4 formats simultaneously with the VIXIA HF R72 camcorder's Dual Recording. It also enables built–in transcoding from AVCHD to MP4.

    Hours Of Video To 32GB Internal or Removable SD Card

    The camcorder's internal 32GB Flash Drive holds up to 12 hours of crisp, high–definition video safely and securely. With no moving parts, flash memory technology is able to withstand most camcorder jolts or drops. You can also record to a removable SD memory card, making it easy to share your video 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 96GB or 36 hours. For added flexibility, you can even backup your video directly to an external hard drive by using the optional UA–100 USB Adapter.

    High Quality Capture Of Moving Opbjects

    The VIXIA HF R72 camcorder gives you high–quality recording whether you're capturing MP4 or AVCHD files. 1080/60p recording captures twice the amount of information as 60i, and with images captured at a rate of up to 60 frames per second, diagonal noise is virtually eliminated so even fast–moving subjects show up crispply with motion and patterns clearly recorded. This greater 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. AVCHD Progressive records at a bit rate of up to 28 Mbps, which is the highest in the AVCHD standard, and MP4 files are captured at a bit rate of up to 35 Mbps, so regardless of the format you're shooting or viewing, image quality is incredibly high.

    Built–in Wi–Fi®

    Built–in Wi–Fi® technology on the VIXIA HF R72 camcorder lets you share your HD video with friends and family virtually when you want, virtually where you want. Connect with compatible home networks, wireless hotspots and iOS® mobile devices using the free Canon Movie Uploader app. Videos and photos can be easily shared over the internet with CANON iMAGE GATEWAY# – a free online photo storage service that lets you upload to social networking sites. And now you can use your PC to browse remotely through the previously shot videos stored on your camcorder, without connecting a cable. The Remote Browse function uses a standard Web browser and does not require a special app.

    NFC (Near Field Communication) Support

    Wireless connection between the VIXIA HF R72 camcorder and your NFC–equipped smartphone can be seamless with Canon/s free CameraAccess plus app. With the app installed, you can simply touch the camcorder to your compatible smartphone to transfer video and images or live stream events as they happen. You can even control the camcorder remotely, monitoring infants while they sleep, or keeping an eye on pets or home security from the office.

    Web Optimized Video Functionality

    The VIXIA HF R72 camcorder has a built–in downconversion function that helps make it easy to share your video online. For example, if the file happens to be too big to send, you can reduce the resolution of your videos while minimizing distortion to help ensure your family and friends will be able to watch them with virtually no loss in quality. The VIXIA HF R72 also features a built–in transcoding function that converts AVCHD files to MP4s, making them easy to upload to the Web or save to an SD card for expanded sharing options.

    3.0 Captive Touch Panel LCD Display

    The VIXIA HF R72 camcorder features a new 3.0–inch capacitive touch panel LCD screen that's bright and clearly visible, even outdoors in the sun, with rich, natural color reproduction. Simply open the panel and the power is on. A gentle touch activates intuitive functions via large, easy–to–use icons in a streamlined new layout. Choose a focal point, track moving subjects, control exposure for selected areas and operate camcorder controls from the screen, all with a simple touch. The easy new
