LEGRIA HD Camcorders
Start Freecording in Full HD.
The stylish and compact LEGRIA HF20 can store over 12 hours of HD movies to internal memory. Perfect for carrying everywhere, features like Pre REC and Video Snapshot make moviemaking fun and easy.
Dual Flash Memory offers 32GB internal memory – enough for over 12 hours of Full HD movies – and recording to removable SDHC cards for extra capacity.
The Canon HD Camera System combines a 3.3MP Full HD CMOS sensor, a 15x optical zoom Canon HD Video Lens and the DIGIC DV III processor to deliver superb Full HD movies. On the highest quality setting, movies are captured at 24Mbps.
Shooting HD is easy. Instant AF achieves pin-sharp focus quickly, while a Super Range OIS prevents camera shake from ruining shots. Powered by DIGIC DV III, Face Detection Technology optimises shooting settings for perfect people shots – up to 35 faces in a frame.
The LEGRIA HF20 is compact and light – at only 340g, it’s perfect for taking anywhere.
Video Snapshot mode makes it incredibly easy to create movies for sharing. Each time the Record button is pressed, a 4 second clip is captured. Simply add your clips to a playlist, select a soundtrack, and you’re instantly ready to watch your movie on a TV – no need for editing. Five rights-free tracks are pre-loaded onto the camcorder: you can also add your own music using the Music Transfer Utility.
With Quick Start and Pre REC you’re always ready. From Standby, opening the LCD screen powers up the camcorder in around a second. Pre REC continuously stores 3 seconds of footage while the camcorder is on: once you press Record, you also capture the preceding 3 seconds of action.
The LEGRIA HF20 supports the expanded colour space of x.v.Color. When movies are played back on a compatible HD TV, colours look deep and rich. 25p Cinema Mode gives your movies the traditional look of film and offers improved low-light shooting.
Shoot high resolution 3.3MP photos. Or, in Dual Shot mode, capture 2MP stills at any time during video recording without changing modes – controls are set to automatic to make it easy. Photo Burst grabs 25 stills from a second of recorded footage.
Record superior audio via a microphone input and monitor levels via the headphone jack. Manual audio control offers even more options.
PIXELA™ software comes supplied – perfect for editing and sharing your movies. Alternatively, easily burn a DVD using the DW-100 DVD Burner (available separately).
