Digital video camera from Canon, the HFR806 is great for tagging along with the whole family, capturing your loved ones’ biggest moments, to their smallest day to day events, because when looking back all of these things are precious. The basic pairing for quality results of these videos is the Full HD resolution, Digic DV4 processor and 32x optical zoom lens. Image Stabilisation produces smooth and steady footage, all lighting conditions are covered thanks to improved low light capabilities and backlight correction.

Creative features with class leading technology
Each of the camcorders now offer the ability to change framerates mid-recording with the new ‘Flexible’ slow and fast motion effects. Whether you’re slowing down at the crucial moment candles are blown out, or speeding up as your loved one dives from the board, you can add comic or dramatic effects with ease. To ensure your videos look natural and well lit, the Highlight Priority mode is backed-up with an improved Backlight Correction, which can now be selected directly when shooting. The combination of the two settings helps the camcorder analyse the scene to ensure all the detail is captured and the contrast between light and dark is sharper, even in bright scenes.

To help you navigate every setting the colourful 7.5cm high-res touch screen offers access to an easy-to-use interface, while Automatic scene takes the pressure away by intelligently changing the settings for you. With a long battery life, these camcorders keep going.

The entire LEGRIA HF line is equipped with powerful Intelligent IS with 5 axis stabilisation, which helps balance out any camera shake, even at high levels of zoom. Whether you’re capturing your baby's first steps or holiday fun in the sun, your video will stay steady while you rush to keep up with the action. Let far-away details come closer with the 32x optical zoom, an impressive 57x Advanced Zoom and reliable Auto Zoom Framing Assist to make sure you never miss a shot. For sound that brings your videos to life, Audio Scene Select adds the optimum setting for any scene to get the best audio quality.
