Dynamic SuperRange Optical Image Stabilisation - provides continuous adjustment throughout the entire zoom range to correct a broad range of motion. Extra compensation is applied at wide-angle focal lengths to eliminate unwanted shaking which is common when walking.

Internal Flash Memory/SDHC Card Recording – record over 12 hours of video to its 32GB internal flash memory or to dual SHDC memory card slots. Relay recording enables the camcorder to automatically switch between storage sources during recording without the need for user intervention. You can also copy footage from card to card.

True Progressive HD CMOS Sensor – 1/2.6” HD CMOS sensor (1920 x 1080) for fast capture, processing and low power consumption.

Instant AF – offers a dramatic improvement in auto focus speed and accuracy (compared to traditional auto focus systems). Uses an external sensor, in combination with Canon's auto focus system, to help significantly decrease the time it takes to find focus, even in low light conditions.

8 Megapixel Photos + Dual Shot – take high resolution 8mp still photos. Also shoots stills during video recording at 6mp and features a built-in flash for still photos.

3.5” LCD Touch Panel – With this high resolution 922,000-dot 3.5” touch screen enjoy faster and easier menu navigation, sliding control of manual functions using gestures, as well as Touch & Track, which allows you to get precise focus and exposure by simply touching a subject on the LCD screen - the AF system will track the selected target and keep it in focus.

LED Video Light – features a built-in video light for low-light shooting.

Advanced Manual Control - including control dial and custom key, allows functions including exposure, focusing, assist functions, mic volume level or AGC limits to be assigned to a custom key.

Intelligent Auto - the camera automatically recognises and selects the optimal shooting settings based on your environment.

Face Detection Up to 35 faces can be tracked automatically, ensuring razor-sharp focus and natural, accurate exposure of the faces tracked.

DiG!c DV III Image Processor – high-speed image processor that produces high quality HD images.

Auto Microphone Regulator - Optimal volume is maintained during recording

Microphone and Headphone Jacks – input jack for external microphone and headphone out enable you to capture better audio. Capture 5.1 surround sound with the new Canon SM-V1 external microphone (sold separately).

LANC Remote Control – with the optional RA-V1 adapter (sold separately) you can use LANC remotes to control the camera.

Video Snapshot V2 - Every time the Record button is pressed, a short two, four or eight second clip is captured - or select your favourite clips while in Playback Mode. Simply transfer your clips to a playlist on the memory card, select a soundtrack, and you’re instantly ready to play your movie on a TV – no need for editing on a PC.
