Video News: If your New Year's resolutions include capturing better videos of the kids, documenting your travels or work functions, or live streaming your favorite events, Canon can help with the latest versions of its VIXIA line

NEW YORK, NY --(Marketwired - January 05, 2017) - B&H Photo would like to share the announcement of Canon's latest additions to its VIXIA camcorder line. The new HF R82, HF R80, and the HF R800B / HF R800W build upon the established Canon VIXIA HF R72, the HF R70, and the HF R700 ( black / white) models. Extended recording times, improved backlight correction in Highlight Priority Mode with true-to-life colors, and additional fast-motion recording options have been added to the VIXIA's palette of creative choices. Canon offers the latest VIXIAs as complements to their current models, not as replacements. Like their predecessors, the R82/80/800 models feature a powerful 57x zoom, Optical Image Stabilization, smartphone remote control, and WiFi/live streaming connectivity.

Shooting outdoors or in a brightly lit interior? The latest VIXIA camcorders' Highlight Priority mode helps to preserve details in backlit situations, yielding images that more closely mimic what you're seeing by eye. The resulting videos are designed for compatibility with bright LCD HDTVs.

Each of the latest VIXIA line is constructed with a variable-speed 57x Advanced Zoom lens (32.5-1853mm equivalent), a 3.28 MP CMOS sensor, a DIGIC DV 4 image processor, and five-axis Optical Image Stabilization. Together, these features help you produce sharp, steady, video with natural color at up to 1080p/60 frame rates. New 300x and 600x speed settings have been added to the original fast-motion recording function for a total of eight options. Choose your settings and view the action on the VIXIA camera's 3.0" capacitive touchscreen LCD panel.

Just like the HF R72 and HF R70 before them, the HF R82 and HF R80 offer Internet live-streaming and camera control when used with the Camera Connect app. Their built-in downconversion function enables you to reduce the size of video files to more easily share them with family and friends.

Whether you opt for the longer-recording HF R82, the similar HF R80, or the more basic HF R800 models, the new family of Canon VIXIA camcorders has your video recording needs covered. These models have just the right features needed for you to produce professional-looking images at your next event.
