LEGRIA HD Camcorders
Shoot and share: Full HD recording has never been this easy.
The stylish, 1920x1080 Full HD HF100 offers the convenience of recording directly to memory cards. Capture incredible footage via the Canon HD Camera System, then share it quickly and easily.
Shooting to SDHC (High Capacity) memory cards, the HF100 is an HD camcorder designed for sharing your movies. Cards are great for passing on to family and friends – as card sizes increase, so does your camcorder’s capacity.
The HF100 is a pocket-sized camcorder with loads of style. And because flash memory has no moving parts, footage is guarded against bumps and knocks.
Recording 1920x1080 Full HD video for superior image quality, the HF100 captures movies that are perfectly suited for watching on Full HD TVs.
Enjoy superior quality HD video thanks to a combination of unique Canon technologies: a Canon HD Video Lens with 12x optical zoom, a 3.3 MP Canon Full HD CMOS sensor, and the powerful DIGIC DV II processor.
Focusing errors and camera shake are more noticeable when shooting HD. The HF100 uses two systems to give you the edge. Instant AF is a hybrid auto focus system that provides speed and accuracy. The Super Range Optical Image Stabilizer compensates for common sources of camera shake.
Easily expand your camcorder system: attach a microphone and take advantage of the HF100’s manual audio controls, for example. After shooting, a built-in HDMI port makes it easy to display footage on an HD TV.
Recording to flash memory is extremely power efficient. For even longer shooting times, the HF100 is compatible with a high capacity battery pack. An Intelligent battery system shows remaining charge to the minute.
Use the HF100 to capture superb 3.1 Megapixel photos.
A 2.7" Multiangle Vivid LCD screen with a 135-degree viewing angle makes it easier to shoot from any angle. HCAR surface treatment minimises screen reflection and makes images look sharper and colours more vibrant.
The camcorder is supplied with powerful software, including PIXELA ImageMixer™ 3 SE to organise, play back and edit your clips. You can even convert them to other file formats. For archiving and sharing videos, the HF100 is also compatible with Canon’s DW-100 (available separately), making it simple to burn HD movies straight to DVD.
