Features

The Canon Vixia HF M30 features an 8 GB flash drive that allows users to record up to 3 hours of high definition video. Supporting Relay Recording, the camcorder automatically switches video recording from the internal drive to a supported SD memory card when the memory becomes full. Having a flash memory/SD card memory slot also means that the camcorder supports optimized response time, because there are no moving parts. The flash memory also allows for low power consumption rate that gives users a longer period of recording time; and shock-resistance properties that protects data that is recorded and saved on the flash memory. Other features on the camcorder include Dynamic SuperRange Optical Image Stabilization which provides continuous adjustment throughout the entire zoom range to correct a broad range of motion, such as recording when one is walking; Touch and Track which tracks the focus and exposure on any subject- people, pets, vehicles and more; Genuine Canon Face Detection technology that focuses up to 35 faces automatically, Smart Auto which detects and analyzes faces, brightness, color, distance, and movement, then automatically selects the correct settings for the scene; Advanced Video Snapshot which allows users to record a series of short video clips or select favorite clips while in Playback Mode, and blend in favorite background music to create a movie (a recording time of 2, 4, or 8 seconds can be selected); an integrated 3.3 megapixel digital camera; HD-to-SD Downconversion which allows users to convert recorded high definition video to standard definition files while preserving the original HD video. These standard definition files make it convenient to edit, share video online, or create a DVD; 24p Cinema Mode which enables a professional “film-look”; and dual shot function which enables both capture of camcorder and digital still shots.
