Canon U.S.A. : Support & Drivers : VIXIA HF R500 | Computers and You Class | Scoop.it
Discover a world of new shooting possibilities with VIXIA HF R500 camcorder's giant 57x Advanced Zoom! Get up close from virtually anywhere and feel free to walk while shooting: the camcorder's SuperRange Optical Image Stabilizer will keep your video sharp and steady. Capture truly impressive, amazingly realistic 1920 x 1080 Full HD video with the Canon 3.28 Megapixel Full HD CMOS Image Sensor and DIGIC DV 4 Image Processor. Even the fastest moving subjects are rendered with crisp detail thanks to 1080/60p recording in easy-to-share MP4 (35 Mbps) and AVCHD Progressive (28 Mbps) formats, and video is recorded directly to a convenient, removable SD memory card. Parents take note: Advanced Baby Mode gives you an easy, organized way to track the daily development of up to three children. Just pick up the camcorder and start shooting: there's no need to worry about settings in this mode - every precious moment is automatically captured with the best possible quality for the shooting conditions. Not only is this camcorder easy to control with its 3.0-inch capacitive touch panel LCD and fast, intuitive interface, but it also incorporates lots of ways to make your video polished, creative and of the highest quality. Intelligent IS optimizes image stabilization for the given conditions, while Smart AUTO chooses the best camcorder settings based on 38 predefined shooting situations. You'll record outstanding audio even under difficult conditions with Audio Scene Select, and give your video a unique creative spin with seven beautiful Cinema-Look Filter effects that can be added during or after shooting. And to keep the fun and memory-making going longer, the VIXIA HF R500 features a high capacity battery pack.
