    Genuine Canon HD Video Lens with 51x Advanced Zoom
    You won't miss any of the action when shooting video with the VIXIA HF R300 camcorder. The camcorder's wide-angle area has been expanded to 33.9mm (35mm equivalent), making complex scenes easier to shoot and adding more image to all your footage. Like every Canon camcorder, the VIXIA HF R300 is equipped with a Genuine Canon HD Video Lens. Canon's high definition video lenses use aspherical lens technology to achieve low chromatic aberration with high resolution while maintaining compact dimensions. Super spectra coating technology lowers flare and ghosting. The big news is the camcorder's impressive 51x Advanced Zoom. Long-range shooting allows you to create videos with dynamic variety, and is less likely to disrupt the action you're shooting. It's perfect for formal ceremonies, animals in the wild, candid family videos and more. Advanced Zoom, available in manual mode, has been achieved with more efficient use of the effective imaging area. It takes the camcorder's telephoto power all the way to 1,729mm (35mm equivalent) for extraordinary flexibility in shooting.

    3.28 Megapixel Full HD CMOS Image Sensor
    The VIXIA HF R300 camcorder is equipped with a 3.28 Megapixel Full HD CMOS Image Sensor for true 1920 x 1080 resolution. Canon's advanced, high-resolution HD CMOS Image Sensor has been improved for the VIXIA HF R300, with extra sensitivity that delivers beautifully lifelike Full HD Video with natural color, even in low light. Original on-chip noise reduction brings bright clarity to every frame. Video is rich, clear and amazingly detailed anywhere you view it, even when played back on a large HDTV.

    3.0-inch Flat Touch Panel LCD
    Big and bright, the VIXIA HF R300's 3.0-inch Flat Touch Panel LCD provides super intuitive control that feels instantly familiar. With a touch, you can shift focus immediately to any subject. Exposure for any area of the screen can be controlled with a touch as well. And with Touch & Track, you simply place your finger on a moving subject and the focus will follow that subject. "Pressable" buttons are also available for selecting settings and controlling camcorder operations on-screen. A new Home button on the camcorder takes you to the main LCD screen, where clear explanations of shooting modes and recording settings help you make informed choices for an exceptionally simple and enjoyable shooting experience.
