Canon LEGRIA HF R17
Get into HD moviemaking with the LEGRIA HF R17. Lightweight, stylish and undeniably chic, it offers 8GB internal memory and memory card recording – all you need to make your own Full HD masterpiece.

Dual Flash Memory
With 8GB of Dual Flash Memory, the LEGRIA HF R17 offers both internal capacity and memory card shooting. Store over 3 hours of movies to built-in memory – or record to SD and SDHC cards, which are great for sharing.

Smart Auto with Scene Detection Technology
For effortless point-and-shoot operation, the camcorder selects the most appropriate scene mode - from a choice of 31 - to automatically obtain perfect settings. Smart Auto mode uses intelligent Scene Detection Technology to select a scene mode based on brightness, contrast, distance and overall hue.

Video Snapshot
Video Snapshot mode makes it easy to create your own short movies. Every time the Record button is pressed a short movie clip is captured – choose from two, four or eight seconds length. To make a movie, simply arrange your clips in a playlist on the memory card, select a soundtrack, and you’re instantly ready to play your movie on a TV – no need for editing on a PC.

Steady shots throughout the range
The LEGRIA HF R17 features a genuine Canon HD Video Lens with 20x optical zoom to get you closer to the action. The Dynamic Electronic Image Stabilizer helps achieve steady shots, even when moving.

HD to SD conversion
In-camera HD to SD conversion makes sharing movies easier. By reducing the size of your movies to web-friendly Standard Definition you can upload your movies faster.

Canon HD Camera System
Capture stunning images via the Canon HD Camera System: the LEGRIA HF R17 uses a unique combination of HD CMOS sensor, a Canon HD Video Lens with 20x optical zoom, and the DIGIC DV III processor.

Pre REC
In Pre REC mode, the camcorder starts recording three seconds before the Record button is pressed. These three seconds are automatically added to the beginning of each clip, so you can still capture the crucial moment even if you pressed the Record button too late.

Family friendly shooting
The LEGRIA HF R17 is perfect for capturing those special moments. Instant AF achieves pin-sharp focus quickly and Face Detection Technology optimises shooting settings for perfect people shots – tracking up to 35 faces in a frame.

Continuous shooting with Relay recording
If the built-in memory becomes full during shooting, Relay recording automatically switches to continue recording on an SDHC card – so you won’t miss a thing.
