Canon VIXIA HF R500

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 (35Mbps) and AVCHD Progressive (28Mbps) 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.

Steady Shooting Through a Mega Zoom Range

57x Advanced Zoom

You won't miss any of the action when shooting video with the VIXIA HF R500 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 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 from 32.5mm all the way to 1,853mm (35mm equivalent) for extraordinary 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.

R500

SuperRange Optical Image Stabilization

Canon's sophisticated SuperRange Optical Image Stabilizer corrects camera shake instantly, 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 R500 stabilizes rotational camera shake. Controlling rotational camera shake – horizontal, vertical and roll axis – ensures smooth, distortion-free video, even when you're walking while shooting.

R500

Exceptionally Lifelike Image Quality

3.28-Megapixel Full HD CMOS Image Sensor

The VIXIA HF R500 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.

R500

Advanced Technology Delivers Exceptional Clarity

DIGIC DV 4 Image Processor

The VIXIA HF R500 incorporates the latest and most advanced Canon HD Image Processor, the DIGIC DV 4 Image Processor, for exceptional imaging performance. The DIGIC DV 4 Image Processor features dramatically increased processing power and captures more light, for brighter, noise-free images even in dark scenes.

R500

Capture Moving Subjects Crisp and Clear

MP4 (35Mbps) or AVCHD Progressive (28Mbps) Recording

The VIXIA HF R500 gives you the highest 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 60 frames per second, diagonal noise is eliminated so even fast moving subjects show up crisply with motion and patterns clearly recorded. This greater sense of detail and faithful rendering of moving edges, plus enhanced color and fine tonal gradation, gives your video everything Full HD has to offer. AVCHD Progressive records at a bit rate of 28Mbps, which is the highest in the AVCHD standard, and MP4 files are captured at a bit rate of 35Mbps, so regardless of the format you're shooting or viewing, image quality is as high as can be.

R500

Intuitive Control with Capacitive Touch

3.0-Inch Capacitive Touch Panel LCD

The VIXIA HF R500 features a 3.0-inch Capacitive Touch Panel LCD screen, making shooting and other operations easy. Simply open the panel and the power is on. The display is clear and vivid, and just as with your smartphone or tablet, a gentle touch activates intuitive functions. Choose a focal point, track moving subjects, control exposure for selected areas, and operate camcorder controls from the screen, all with a simple touch. In addition, the easy-to-use user interface makes your shooting experience simpler and more fun. The Home button is on the menu screen, and provides quick access to all functions. Clear explanations for key settings pop up when selecting shooting modes and recording formats, so you can be confident in the decisions you make.

The Easiest Way to Capture, Track and Share Your Baby's Development

Baby Mode

A complete solution for capturing, tracking, organizing and sharing every precious moment of your baby's development, Baby Mode on the VIXIA HF R500 camcorder has been advanced to allow you to follow the growth of up to three children. A custom control button on the shooting screen activates the mode, and optimal settings for the shooting conditions, including Intelligent IS and more, are automatically selected. Simply pick up the camcorder and start recording, knowing capture will be of the highest quality. Videos shot in Baby Mode are automatically saved into a dedicated Baby Album so they'll never get lost among your other videos. You can then view the Baby Album chronologically for a seamless way to relive and share your baby's growth with friends and relatives.

R500

More Shooting Time with Every Charge

High Capacity Battery

The VIXIA HF R500 is powered by a high capacity battery pack. The rechargeable lithium-ion battery not only lets you shoot for long periods, but features intelligent technology that accurately indicates remaining battery time down to the minute, for extra insurance that you'll never miss an important shooting opportunity.

R500

Superb Audio in Any Situation

Audio Scene Select

Audio Scene Select on the VIXIA HF R500 makes it even easier to capture clear, high quality audio with a choice of five audio modes to choose from based on your shooting situation: Standard, Music, Speech, Forest and Birds, and Noise Suppression. Each of these modes has pre-determined optimized settings best suited for the shot you're capturing, resulting in outstanding video with realistic, immersive audio. Audio settings can also be custom set to meet your shooting needs.

R500

Automatically Beautiful Video

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.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Cam

Pros: Picture quality is fine. Weight is amazingly light .. really good feature .. Navigation through the menu is extremely easy .. Love it !

Best part, it has a mic input if you want to take videos for youtube and use a clip mic .. rarely found at this price range

Cons: Not that good quality at low light.

Other Thoughts: Recommended if you are in a tight budget and still mic input is essential. Otherwise, there are better offerings even from same maker (Canon).
