    8MP Canon HD Camera System

    Get stunning images and superb low-light performance via the Canon HD Camera System: the LEGRIA HF S30 combines an 8.0MP Full HD CMOS sensor, a Canon HD Video Lens, and the DIGIC DV III processor.

    8.8 (3.5”) touch-screen LCD and EVF

    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 access to shooting and playback functions, including Touch Tracking, Touch Focus and Touch Exposure. The LEGRIA HF S30 also features a colour EVF for framing the scene.

    32GB Dual Flash Memory

    32GB Dual Flash Memory combines large built-in capacity, enough for over 12 hours of HD movies – with dual slots for the option of recording to removable SDXC 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 S30 lets you convert AVCHD (MPEG4) files to smaller, standard definition MPEG2 files, ready for burning to DVD or uploading to the web.

    Professional control

    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.

    Audio excellence

    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.

    Steadier shots

    An Optical Image Stabilizer with a new Dynamic mode lets you record steadier footage 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.

    Extended colour

    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.

    Creative extras

    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.
