LEGRIA HD Camcorders
A fusion of unrivalled HD quality and control.
The LEGRIA HF S10 is an HD camcorder that fuses professional-level imaging with the advantages of Dual Flash Memory. Advanced controls allow you to capture incredibly sharp and detailed HD images.
Capture stunning images via the Canon HD Camera System: the LEGRIA HF S10 uses a unique combination of 8.0MP Full HD CMOS sensor, Canon HD Video Lens with 10x optical zoom (58mm filter diameter), and the DIGIC DV III processor.
32GB Dual Flash Memory combines large built-in capacity – enough for over 12 hours of HD movies – with the added option of recording to removable SDHC memory cards.
Canon’s unique Instant AF system achieves highly accurate focus at speed. Super Range OIS combats every kind of camera shake, from slow to fast movements.
A Custom Key lets you activate one of five variables which can be assigned to the manual Control Dial, including focus, exposure, and audio level. Further advanced controls include AGC (Auto Gain Control) limits – usually only found on professional camcorders, this boosts or limits responsiveness when shooting in low light – Zebra patterns, Colour Peaking and Colour Bar/Test Tone output.
Video Snapshot captures short 4 second movie clips – ideal for putting together in a playlist later. You can play back your montage of video clips with a soundtrack of your choice. Face Detection Technology automatically optimises settings for perfect people shots, detecting up to 35 faces in a frame. Pre REC captures the 3 seconds of action before you press Record – so you never miss the shot.
DIGIC DV III supports x.v.Color – for deeper, richer hues when movies are played back on compatible HD TVs. 25p Cinema Mode matches the look of traditional film, and provides enhanced low-light shooting performance.
A dedicated Photo mode allows users to capture high resolution still images, up to 8MP. In Dual Shot mode, 6MP stills can be shot during video recording. Photo Burst grabs 25 stills from a single second of recorded footage.
A microphone input connection and headphone jack let you capture and monitor superior audio. Manual audio level control provides even more options.
With a mini Advanced Accessory Shoe, attach a range of optional peripherals – such as a microphone or a video light.
For simple editing and sharing, PIXELA™ software is supplied. DVDs are easy to burn at the touch a button with Canon’s DW-100 DVD Burner (available separately).
