Canon HF R18E Features

  • Dual Flash Memory: With 32GB of Dual Flash Memory, the LEGRIA HF R18 offers both internal capacity and memory card shooting. Store over 12 hours of movies to built-in memory - or record to SD and SDHC cards, which are great for sharing.
  • Smart Auto with Scene Detection Technology: For effortless point-and-shoot operation, the camcorder selects the most appropriate scene mode - from a choice of 31 - to automatically obtain perfect settings.
  • Video Snapshot mode makes it easy to create your own short movies. Every time the Record button is pressed a short movie clip is captured - choose from two,4 or 8 seconds length. Simply arrange your clips in a playlist on the memory card, select a soundtrack and play your movie on a TV
  • Steady shots throughout the range: The LEGRIA HF R18 features a genuine Canon HD Video Lens with 20x optical zoom to get you closer to the action. The Dynamic Electronic Image Stabilizer helps achieve steady shots, even when moving.
  • HD to SD conversion: In-camera HD to SD conversion makes sharing movies easier. By reducing the size of your movies to web-friendly Standard Definition you can upload your movies faster.
  • Canon HD Camera System: Capture stunning images via the Canon HD Camera System: the LEGRIA HF R18 uses a unique combination of HD CMOS sensor, a Canon HD Video Lens with 20x optical zoom and the DIGIC DV III processor.
  • Pre REC: In Pre REC mode, the camcorder starts recording three seconds before the Record button is pressed. These three seconds are automatically added to the beginning of each clip, so you can still capture the crucial moment even if you pressed the Record button too late.
  • Family friendly shooting: The LEGRIA HF R18 is perfect for capturing those special moments. Instant AF achieves pin-sharp focus quickly and Face Detection Technology optimises shooting settings for perfect people shots - tracking up to 35 faces in a frame.
  • Continuous shooting with Relay recording: If the built-in memory becomes full during shooting, Relay recording automatically switches to continue recording on an SDHC card - so you won't miss a thing.
