Weighing 9.5 ounces and measuring 2.4 x 2.5 x 4.9 inches, the camcorder offers optimized response time, because there are no moving parts; low power consumption rate that allows the camcorder to operate on a longer period of time; shock-resistance properties that protects data that is recorded and saved on the flash memory; Genuine Canon 20x HD Video Lens with a 2.39-megapixel HD CMOS Image Sensor that captures high definition video and photos with detail and Canon’s DIGIC DV III Image Processor, Smart Auto which detects and analyzes faces, brightness, color, distance, and movement, then automatically selects the correct settings for the scene; Instant AF focusing system which uses an external sensor, in combination with Canon's auto focus system, to decrease the time it takes to find focus, even in low light conditions, making it ideal for shooting in high brightness or night shooting situations. Other features on the HF-R100 are Focus Assist which helps in capturing subject in focus; Dynamic IS system for continuous adjustment throughout the entire zoom range to correct a broader range of motion; Face Detection Technology for up to 35 faces which is tracked automatically; 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); compatibility with the Eye-Fi SD Memory Card and Dual Shot to capture both video and photos.
