8MP Canon HD Camera System
Get stunning images and superb low-light performance via the Canon HD Camera System: the LEGRIA HF S20 combines an 8.0MP Full HD CMOS sensor, a Canon HD Video Lens, and the DIGIC DV III processor.
8.8cm (3.5”) touch-screen LCD
A high-resolution 8.8cm (3.5”) touch-screen LCD offers a 100% view for shooting HD movies. A unique, gesture-based LCD interface gives you fingertip access to shooting and playback functions, including Touch Tracking, Touch Focus and Touch Exposure modes.
32GB Dual Flash Memory
32GB Dual Flash Memory combines large built-in capacity – enough for over 12 hours of HD movies – with dual SDHC slots for the option of recording to removable SDHC memory cards. Relay Recording automatically detects when one storage medium is full, and switches to the other.
Easy movie sharing
For easier sharing of your movies, the LEGRIA HF S20 lets you convert AVCHD (MPEG4) files to smaller, standard definition MPEG2 files, ready for burning to DVD or uploading to the web.
A Custom Key lets you activate one of five variables that can be assigned to the manual Control Dial, including focus, exposure, and audio level. A remote control jack input enables the use of optional external remote controls.
Capture and monitor superior audio with a microphone input connection and headphone jack. A configurable Mic Attenuator compensates for sudden volume changes, ensuring that audio is always recorded at the optimum level.
An Optical Image Stabilizer with a new Dynamic mode lets you record steadier footage, even when you’re moving. Powered IS keeps footage super-steady when shooting at the telephoto end of the zoom range.
Don’t miss a thing
In Pre REC mode, the camcorder starts recording three seconds before the Record button is pressed. These seconds are added to the beginning of each clip, so you can still capture that crucial moment even if you pressed the Record button too late. Instant AF achieves highly accurate focus at speed.
DIGIC DV III supports x.v.Color – for deeper, richer hues during playback on compatible HDTVs. 25p Cinema Mode matches the look of traditional film, and provides enhanced low-light shooting performance.
With a mini Advanced Accessory Shoe, optional accessories – such as a video light – can be used. The 58mm lens thread is compatible with professional filters.
