Canon Full HD CMOS
Canon’s Full HD CMOS video chip is developed and manufactured exclusively for Canon camcorders. A 2.96 Megapixel sensor captures High Definition images, using advanced noise reduction technology to provide sharper, cleaner video. A Bayer placement RGB Primary Colour Filter provides richer colours that are true-to-life.

Instant AF
Canon’s Instant AF is a hybrid focusing system that employs two sensors to achieve precise auto focusing at super fast speeds. Designed to reduce focusing errors and make shooting easier, Instant AF leaves you free to concentrate on capturing all of the action

Genuine Canon optics
The HR10’s 10x optical zoom lens – specially engineered for HD quality – gets you closer to the action. Canon’s Super Range Optical Image Stabilizer (OIS) helps the camcorder compensate for camera shake across the frequency range.

Canon’s advanced DIGIC DV II processor is designed to handle the increased image data of HD: record superb images with vivid colours.

Wide angle LCD
Share your movies with family and friends more easily on the HR10’s 2.7" Multiangle Vivid LCD screen. A wide 135 viewing angle is complemented by HCAR surface treatment, ensuring sharp images, vibrant colours and minimal screen reflection.

Slim and compact
The HR10 puts the power of HD moviemaking into the palm of your hand. Weighing just 530g, the camcorder is lightweight and stylishly compact; a long life battery and low power consumption allow you to keep on recording for extended periods.

25p Cinema Mode
25p Cinema Mode – the combination of genuine progressive shooting and special CINE image settings – gives your movies an authentically cinematic look and feel.

Advanced photography
The HR10 is a versatile camcorder that offers advanced digital photography features. Storing great photos to MiniSD card, a 2.07 Megapixel picture can even be taken while a video is being shot.

An HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) connection is an easy way to watch your movies on an HD-ready TV set. You can also connect the camcorder to a compatible computer.
