Camcorders Buying Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

Small enough to carry with you everywhere, the LEGRIA HF200 records stunning Full HD movies straight to SDHC memory cards – perfect for passing on to friends or uploading to the web.

Memory card recording
Shoot stunning Full HD movies to SDHC memory cards. Removable and easy to share, store over 12 hours on a 32GB card.

Canon HD Camera System
See the benefits of the Canon HD Camera System. The combination of a 3.3MP Full HD CMOS sensor, a 15x optical zoom Canon HD Video Lens, and the super-fast DIGIC DV III processor delivers superb Full HD movie quality. On the highest quality setting, movies are captured at 24Mbps.

Great videos made easy
User-friendly technologies make shooting HD easy. Instant AF achieves pin-sharp focus quickly, while a Super Range OIS prevents camera shake from ruining shots. Powered by DIGIC DV III, Face Detection Technology optimises shooting settings for perfect people shots – up to 35 faces in a frame.

Pocket-sized
Weighing just 340g, the LEGRIA HF200 can be taken anywhere – a perfect video partner, wherever you go.

Video Snapshot
Video Snapshot makes creating movies to share easy. Every time the Record button is pressed, a short 4 second clip is captured. Simply add clips to a playlist, select a soundtrack, and your movie is instantly ready for playback on a TV – no need for editing on a PC. Upload music to memory card with the Music Transfer Utility.

Instant shooting
With Quick Start and Pre REC you’re always ready. From Standby, opening the LCD screen powers up the camcorder in around a second. Pre REC continuously stores 3 seconds of footage while the camcorder is on: when you press Record, you also capture the preceding 3 seconds.

Creative options
The LEGRIA HF200 supports the expanded colour space of x.v.Color. When movies are played back on a compatible HD TV, colours look better than ever. Choose 25p Cinema Mode to make movies that have the traditional look of film, or for improved low-light shooting.

Still shooting
Shoot high resolution 3.3MP photos. Or, in Dual Shot mode, capture 2MP stills at any time during video recording without changing modes – controls are set to automatic to make it easy. Photo Burst grabs 25 stills from a second of recorded footage.

Better audio
A microphone input lets you attach an external microphone to record better audio – monitor levels using the headphone jack. Manual audio controls offer even greater precision.

Software
With supplied PIXELA™ software edit and share your HD movies. With Canon’s DW-100 DVD Burner (available separately), easily burn a DVD.
