Canon Vixia HFR10 Black Dual Flash Memory Camcorder, Model HFR10BK

With the Canon VIXIA HF R10 Dual Flash Memory Camcorder, you'll find that high definition video has hit new levels of convenience, ease, performance- and value. The VIXIA HF R10 has an 8GB internal flash drive, together with an SD memory card slot, Canon's Relay Recording and Smart Auto. A Genuine Canon 20x HD Video Lens and Dynamic IS works in combination with our sophisticated Canon HD image processing to deliver the sharp, vivid, lifelike video you want to see on your HDTV. Advanced Video Snapshot lets you create 2-, 4- or 8-second movie clips, with music, that are perfect for sharing And advanced easy-to-operate control features of the VIXIA HF R10 help to make high-quality video that can turn the casual shooter into the family cinematographer, at a very affordable price. For the crowning touch, show your personal style with a choice of three colors- black, silver or red.

Features:

  • Flash Memory
    The VIXIA HF R10 allows you to record up to 3 hours of crisp high definition video to a 8GB internal flash drive or to a removable SD memory card. With Relay Recording, the camcorder automatically switches video recording from the internal drive to the SD memory card when the memory becomes full. No need then to worry about running out of recording time during a thrilling, once-in-a-lifetime shot
  • Stunning Image Quality
    A Genuine Canon 20x HD Video Lens delivers unsurpassed image quality. The Canon Exclusive 2.39-megapixel HD CMOS Image Sensor captures high definition video and photos with astonishing detail, while Canon’s Exclusive DIGIC DV III mage Processor provides the ultimate in color and imaging performance, with enhanced reproduction of difficult to capture purple and blue tones
  • Instant AF (Auto Focus)
    A critical objective when shooting in high definition is achieving the sharpest focus possible. The VIXIA HF R10 camcorder features Canon's revolutionary Instant AF focusing system which offers a dramatic improvement in auto focus speed and accuracy, compared to traditional auto focus systems. The Instant AF feature 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. This system achieves focus instantaneously, reducing focus "hunting." This is especially beneficial in high brightness or night shooting situations. In addition, with Instant AF, it's possible to capture fast, accurate focusing even when following a moving subject. To further enhance focusing capability, the VIXIA HF R10 also features Focus Assist. This helps in capturing your subject in razor-sharp focus. It works by providing a 2x magnification of your subject, which is automatically cancelled when you start recording. This is a feature normally found in professional broadcast-quality cameras
  • Dynamic IS
    With the Canon VIXIA HF R10, you can be sure that even on the move your video will be smooth, steady and professional looking. The Dynamic IS system provides continuous adjustment throughout the entire zoom range to correct a broader range of motion. In comparison to conventional electronic image stabilization systems, extra compensation is applied at wide-angle focal lengths to eliminate unwanted vibration common when shooting while walking
  • 2.7" Widescreen LCD
    The 2.7" Widescreen LCD on the VIXIA HF R10 lets you see more of what your camcorder is recording. There's no need to imagine what your final image will look like on your widescreen television because it's squeezed into a small space while you're shooting
  • Smart Auto
    Smart Auto makes shooting great video easier than ever before. Using the power of Canon’s DIGIC DV III Image Processor, the VIXIA HF R10 intelligently detects and analyzes faces, brightness, color, distance, and movement, then automatically selects the best settings for the scene. Whether you are capturing a sunset, a day at the beach, or a fast-paced soccer game, Smart Auto delivers exceptionally accurate results
  • Genuine Canon Face Detection
    The same high quality Face Detection technology used in Canon digital cameras is available in Canon high definition camcorders. Up to 35 faces can be tracked automatically, ensuring razor-sharp focus and natural, accurate exposure. Of the faces tracked, 9 detection frames can be displayed at one time. In fact, the system is so intelligent that it will recognize faces turned downwards or sideways. In addition, a specific face may be selected as the main subject for continuous tracking. This feature is convenient in searching for clips which feature that specific subject's face. In search and playback, use of the Face Index will display those frames with the chosen face as a thumbnail in each shot in which it appears. Your selected face can also be linked as a timeline to further identify footage containing your subject
  • Advanced Video Snapshot
    Advanced Video Snapshot allows you to capture the highlights of a once in a lifetime trip or a family milestone with the same ease as taking photos. Simply record a series of short video clips – or select your favorite clips while in Playback Mode – and blend in your favorite background music to create an exciting movie that will hold everyone’s attention. This version of Advanced Video Snapshot allows selectable recording time of 2, 4, or 8 seconds. Additionally, audio from an external source, such as an MP3 player, can be played along with the snapshot movie and playback can be controlled from that source
  • Easy Web Sharing
    HD-to-SD Downconversion allows you to convert recorded high definition video to standard definition files while safely preserving the original HD video. These standard definition files make it even more convenient to edit, share video online, or create a DVD. The downconverted video can be transferred to your computer via traditional methods – i.e. USB connection, card slot – or wirelessly to sharing sites with an Eye-Fi SD memory card. The VIXIA HF R10 is also compatible with the Eye-Fi SD memory card. It’s possible to wirelessly transfer video and photos to your computer, or upload them directly to online sharing sites (e.g., Facebook, YouTube, Shutterfly, Flickr) in a few simple steps. Insert an Eye-Fi SD memory card into the SD card slot on the camcorder, configure your computer to select the target site and you’re ready to share your standard definition files with family, friends, and the world! Canon camcorders are not guaranteed to support Eye-Fi card functions (including wireless transfer). In case of an issue with an Eye-Fi card, please check with Eye-Fi, Inc. Outside of the United States and Canada, government approval is required to use Eye-Fi cards in many countries or regions. Without approval, use of the card is not permitted. If it is unclear whether the card has been approved for use in the area, please check with Eye-Fi, Inc.
  • Built-in Digital Camera
    Since Canon is acknowledged as a world leading maker of digital cameras, it’s not surprising that the VIXIA HF R10, in addition to being a brilliant camcorder, is also a capable digital camera. Once again, Canon delivers features and technology that advance convenience and capability. The VIXIA HF R10’s Dual Shot makes it easier than ever to capture both video and photos. Auto Intelligent Auto Focus, AiAF, ensures sharp images and gives creative flexibility. Even when your subject isn't in the center of the frame, the VIXIA HF R10's 9-Point AiAF will automatically select from 9 metering frames on the screen to help bring images into sharp focus. You can also choose from a range of exposure modes: Auto, AV (aperture priority), TV (shutter priority), and P (program). For optimal exposure, the VIXIA HF R10 offers selectable metering patterns. You can choose the options of Evaluative, Center-Weighted Average, and Spot. The AE Bracketing feature of the VIXIA HF R10 automatically takes three versions of a shot, with 'dark,' 'normal' and 'light' settings in ½ exposure steps so you may choose the one that best suits you. The VIXIA HF R10 can shoot up to 3 frames per second in the Continuous Mode, or a blazing 5 frames per second in the High Speed Continuous Mode. The VIXIA HF R10 comes with a Histogram Display which allows you to see the brightness information of your photos, so you can adjust your exposures as you shoot. With the Level Marker feature, it's easy to keep your camera level for more professional-looking photos. The VIXIA HF R10's Grid Marker feature lets you compose your shot accurately, according to the grid in your viewfinder. You can even choose from two different colors for the grid ensuring that you see the grid, no matter what the background color of your shot is. The versatile VIXIA HF R10 even lets you capture a still image from an already recorded movie. While playing the movie in your camcorder, simply press the photo button to capture a 1920 x 1080 still image onto an SD card or to internal memory. Additionally, the VIXIA HF R10 allows you to capture 30 photos from one second of video. Now, better photos, filled with action and expressions, are easy to grab, print, post and share. Your VIXIA HF R10's built-in flash lets you capture superb photos indoors and in low light conditions. The VIXIA HF R10 also features red-eye reduction. Print/Share allows you to connect your camcorder directly to select Canon printers or any PictBridge-compatible printer with the supplied USB cable and with a touch of the Print/Share button, print directly from your VIXIA HF R10.

  • 24p & 30p Frame Modes
    24p Cinema Mode enables all aspiring moviemakers to achieve a professional "film-look." You can change the camcorder's frame capture rate to 24p (recorded at 60i), which provides the appearance of the same frame rate as movie film. In addition, you can use the VIXIA HF R10's CINE mode, which changes the color and tonal characteristics, evoking the look and feel of a movie shown in a theater. For added flexibility, these settings can be used together or independently. You would normally have to look to professional video cameras in order to find a sophisticated tool like 30p Progressive Mode at your command. In addition to the standard interlaced video frame rate of 60i, you may choose to set the VIXIA HF R10 to capture video in 30p, (30 progressive frames, recorded to 60i) which is particularly useful for footage to be used on the Internet. In addition, this setting gives enhanced quality to photos captured after recording. It's also excellent for action shots and sports shots. In addition, this setting gives enhanced quality to photos captured after recording

    • Pre-Record
      The Pre-record feature places your VIXIA HF R10 in a stand-by "pre-roll" mode.

    This little thing is excellent. Weight, picture, sound, you name it. For those who have issues with the rattling noise. The reason is you have the mic set to AUTO and you are in a quiet environment. Therefor the camera automatically boosts the mic sensitivity which in turn picks up the mechanical noise of the camera that is inherent in all the cameras in this product line. The solution? Turn the mic to MANUAL and drop the sensitivity a bit, you're still left with fantasic crisp audio minus the rattling. Hope that helps. P.S. Menu and control are abit difficult/limited if you need advanced controls... but that comes with being a compact camcorder and is compensated by the good auto features.

    Everything but the audio is satisfactory. But the audio is enough to rate this camcorder as poor in my judgement. When filming in a quiet environment, you can hear a subtle rattling of the internal components that is picked up by the mic ruining the resulting video. I returned the first camcorder thinking it was defective, only to find its replacement had the exact same problem. This model obviously suffers from a design or manufacturing defect that is subtle, but will ruin any quiet moment in a video. Where I would normally recommend Canon products to anyone, this product was a disappoint.

        Comments about Canon Vixia HFR10 Black Dual Flash Memory Camcorder:

        I bought this camorder in March of 2011. I wanted to start recording video of our family in HD. I have a canon hi 8 camcorder and was always pleased with the quality from canon. The first videos I took were in daylight outdoors and the results I was impressed with. As different scenarios came with shooting video I noticed that recording in low light was terrible to my expectations. I learned through the manual and online videos (Youtube) from others how to tweek my settings to get better night shots but there is still video noise (grainy). I like the camera and use it quite often. I've been doing my research on upgrading my camcorder, the Vixia hf m40 caught my attention. The sample videos I have seen online taken in low light are impressive and it has a pro cmos lense sensor. Overall I would recommend the Vixia hf r10 to anyone entering the HD movie recording. The image stablization feature works well and the ex color feature gives your shots great color. With this camcorder if you want better night shots use the night mode or low light, but low light will be draggy. Buy a L.E.D light for low light shots.

              Comments about Canon Vixia HFR10 Black Dual Flash Memory Camcorder:

              I did a lot of comparison shopping when choosing a camcorder. I looked at reviews and Youtube videos of different camcorders. One thing I noticed when watching the videos of a different competitor, when they zoomed in or out in a quiet video, there was a loud clicking noise when the zoom stopped each time. The Canon Vixia HF R10 does have a clicking noise that is noticeable, but I really had to turn up the volume on my HDTV to even hear it. It is very slight. It is certainly not a deal breaker! It includes an external mic jack, where that would not be a problem at all. The outdoor videos are very crisp and clear. The colors of the videos are brilliant. Indoor videos are not as crisp, but I am still experimenting with different settings. The joystick is better than a touchscreen LCD, no fingerprints. All in all ,this is a great little camcorder and I would not hesitate to buy it. Thanks Canon!!!

It is very well constructed and feels great while using. Great for travel you can just slip it in your pocket and go. Video quality in HD is very impressive.

                  At the price range of this camera, I (like most) was looking for some "prosumer" features like Mic input. THe reason for this is to produce videos- may not show up on MTV, but definately at Youtube. The mic input allows me to connect sound directly from the mixer (at church) and record the sermons. It is not a $3K camera, but the video quality, is very good. I use imovie to edit the shots, and it works for me. The compact size is super. The only thing I don't like is the battery life. Shooting a video outside, only gives me approx 45 min to shoot; meaning I will have to get a backup battery.

                    The camera makes a noise that is recorded by the camera's microphone that ruins the shot. After much experimenting I found that it is the lens auto focus that makes the noise. If you put your finger over the mic to block the outside sound you can hear this whirring sound very loud. You can get rid of it by turning off the auto focus in the menu, but that's not a good solution. This is a poor design.

                      I don't make a lot of money and with a mortgage a kid on the way I thought that I would be simply limited to trying to break in entertainment merely by writing and the occasional stand up appearance. This product is better quality, value, and performance output then the 3,000 dollar or more HD quality cameras I dreamed of having 5 6 years ago. Love the features and its a perfect match for pinnacle. Thank you Canon for making an affordable quality product you have earned a loyal customer for life... As for the clicking I have had no troubles when going to manual and you can filter it out easily if you can edit also not a unnatural sound and very light easily filtered not the disaster that perfectionist can't live with. Battery lasts about an hour or little more just bought a back-up and I'm good to go....Hope this helps begging film makers realize you dont have to invest more than $500 to get started.

                        Camcorder shoots excellent video in daylight. The functions are fairly intuitive and there are plenty of features/options at this camera's price point. You can drag-and-drop files from the camera to PC using Windows Explorer (which is great and one of the reasons I upgraded from a tape to a flash camcorder). Generally I'm happy enough with the camera as a casual user but would have the following constructive feedback: (1) battery life is pretty poor, especially when compared to my old tape camcorder of another brand (2) indoor and low light video & pictures are somewhat grainy (3) the bundled software is extremely clunky - AND if you don't use the bundled software for file transfer, it doesn't appear that you can move files back to the camcorder (e.g., want to load up a bunch of video and pictures from vacation and take to someone else's house to view on their TV).
