Effortless fun, simple sharing - wherever you go
The LEGRIA FS406 packs a host of features into a stylish, pocket-sized design. With a 41x Advanced zoom and Video Snapshot, it’s easy to shoot and share top-quality movies. Choice of three chic colours.
The LEGRIA FS406 records movies straight to SDXC or Eye-Fi cards- easy to carry and ideal for sharing.
Compact and lightweight the LEGRIA FS406 is Canon’s smallest digital camcorder - so it’s easy to take with you wherever you go.
A genuine Canon video lens with 41x Advanced zoom lets you get closer to the action. The DIGIC DVII processor ensures the image quality is high throughout the zoom range. The Dynamic Image Stabiliser combats the shake from walking, so your movies have a smoother, professional look.
Convenient Dual Shot mode simplifies operation: press one button to shoot video and another to capture still photos, without having to switch the Control Dial. Instant one button access to Auto mode sets all controls to automatic, so it’s easy to shoot high quality videos.
Record stunning, panoramic widescreen movies in true 16:9. Monitor your video footage the way it appears on a widescreen TV via the 6.7cm (2.7") 16:9 LCD.
With Video Snapshot it’s easy to create fun movies with music to share with friends – and you don’t need a PC. Capture short 2, 4 or 8 second clips with just one touch of the record button. These clip times mirror the length of ‘one cut’ in a TV show to give your movie an expert feel. Then simply add your favourite clips to a playlist, choose a soundtrack of your own, or from the supplied CD, and your movie is ready to share.
Capture the natural beauty of the night with Night Scene Mode. It automatically provides the optimum settings so you can enjoy finely detailed night shots, with faithful dark tones and reduced flaring from bright lights.
Shoot for up to 3.7 hours on a single charge. Quick recharge takes just 20 minutes to replenish the battery for an hour’s recording. Remaining charge is accurately displayed in minutes.
The LEGRIA FS406 features Pre Record so it starts recording three seconds before you press the record button. These are added to the beginning of each clip so you never miss that crucial shot.
Supplied PIXELA™ software makes it easy to organize, edit and share your videos. A simplified user interface gives you quick and easy access to editing and web upload functions.
