    30.4mm Wide-angle HD Video lens

    Canon’s professional HD Video lens technology delivers a superb 30.4mm, F1.8 lens with a smooth, 10x optical zoom, and 8-Blade iris for natural looking de-focus effects.

    Canon HD CMOS Pro Sensor

    A 2.07 MP HD CMOS Pro sensor - designed and made for professional camcorders - captures Full HD at native 1920x1080 resolution. The light gathering area of the pixels is 160% greater than a conventional CMOS, for wider dynamic range and better low-light performance.

    Professional audio

    The new, high sensitivity built-in microphone has 4 directionality modes to ensure you capture more of the sound you want and an audio equaliser for the perfect tone. A zoom mic option is available and, when used with an external mic, the 2 sources can be mixed in camera. Optional Canon 5.1 Surround and Wireless mics are also available.

    32GB memory plus 2x SDXC slots

    Full HD AVCHD video is recorded at up to 24mbps to 32GB built-in flash memory – for over 12 hours recording. Dual SDXC card slots and Relay Recording ensure enough capacity for the most ambitious movie projects.

    Full creative control

    A lens focus ring gives you precise control of manual focussing, while an assignable Control Dial allows control of functions such as aperture, shutter speed and gain. Professional shooting assist functions include Magnification, Peaking and Zebras.

    High-resolution 8.8cm Touch-screen

    A high-resolution 920k dot, 8.8cm Touch-screen LCD is optimised for shooting in HD and provides 100% coverage of the scene. A retractable, colour viewfinder adds to your shot-framing options.

    Instant AF; Face Detection

    Instant AF provides fast and accurate focussing for pin-sharp HD quality. Face Detection automatically optimises camcorder settings for perfectly focussed and exposed people shots.

    Optical Image Stabiliser

    An advanced Optical Image Stabiliser ensures smooth, steady video every time. Dynamic mode stabilises shots on the move, while Powered IS delivers steady telephoto shots.

    Creative Cinematic Filters

    Inspire your creativity with built-in Cinema-Look Filters. Select from 8 adjustable colour-grading filters to capture the perfect looking movie scene. Shoot progressively at 25 full frames per second for a more cinematic feel.

    Easy sharing and uploading

    In-camera HD-SD conversion lets you down-convert your movies to standard definition, ready for uploading and sharing via the web.
