The camcorder's huge 57x Advanced Zoom gets you the shot you want from virtually anywhere without interrupting the scene and with the SuperRange Optical Image Stabilizer video is clear and steady, even at the long end of the zoom and when you shoot while walking.

Stunning 1920 x 1080 Full HD video from the 3.28 Megapixel Full HD CMOS Image Sensor and DIGIC DV 4 Image Processor preserves your memories with lifelike detail and natural color. You can capture up to 3 hours of video on the 8GB internal flash drive, or record directly to a convenient SD memory card for even more storage capacity.

Built-in Wi-Fi is now easier than ever to use: share recorded video or live stream on your Android or iOS device and even control the camcorder remotely with the new CameraAccess plus app. And now with the optional new Camera Pan Table you can remotely monitor a wide 200deg. area on your device via Wi-Fi, whether you're in another room or on the road. Moving subjects are captured with smooth, blur-free precision thanks to 1080/60p recording in MP4 (35 Mbps) and AVCHD Progressive (28 Mbps). Dual Recording lets you record in both formats simultaneously and built-in downconversion creates easy-to-share MP4 files for the web.

An improved Baby Mode gives parents easy, organized ways to capture the daily growth and development of up to three children. Just pick up and shoot: the mode automatically ensures the best quality for the given shooting situation. With an intuitive interface and 3.0" capacitive touch panel LCD, operating the VIXIA HF R50 camcorder is a snap and with a high capacity battery pack, you won't miss an important moment.
