Life’s about sharing

NFC also enables effortless connection with Canon Connect Station, allowing content to be stored and then watched at leisure with family and friends on your TV.

Sharp results on every occasion

Canon’s optical Intelligent IS means there’s no need to worry about camera shake. It adapts to the scene you’re shooting, automatically selecting the optimum image stabilisation mode for you. Even when you’re on the move, the 5-axis Dynamic IS ensures steady footage.

Every memory in magnificent detail

Enjoy making stunning movies with Canon’s HD video lens. It features a versatile 57x Advanced zoom, letting you capture the detail in even faraway subjects. Image quality is superb – even when shooting in low light – thanks to the 3.28 MP Full HD CMOS sensor and DIGIC DV4 processor. Prevent your memories from being deleted inadvertently with the handy File Lock feature.

Added freedom with the Wide Attachment lens

Shooting in confined spaces usually means it’s tricky to keep everyone in frame. The HF R68 includes an innovative Wide Attachment lens, which can be quickly mounted on the front. This shortens the focal length to 26.9mm*, expanding the range of movies you can make.

Fun for the whole family

Experiment with slow and fast motion recording. Slow motion cuts speed by 1/2x – great for correcting golf swings – while fast motion speeds everything up, by up to 1200x. It works by recording at pre-determined intervals so you can use it to create fascinating time lapse sequences. Try adding fun effects to movies using Touch Decoration, or create atmosphere with Cinema-Look Filters.

Don’t lose track

What happens if you lose track of whom you’re filming at a distance? Simply press and hold the search button and Framing Assist pans back out to quickly relocate your subjects. Release search and the camcorder zooms back in again to continue filming.

Capture many firsts

Capture the first steps and words of up to three children with advanced Baby Mode. Register each child’s date of birth in-camera, and add colourful stamps and animations to record height and weight. All footage is automatically saved to the relevant baby album.

Great sounding movies

Make movies sound as good as they look with Audio Scene Select. Simply select from 5 different modes to suit the scene you’re shooting.

Flexible recording

Movies can be recorded in different formats (AVCHD + MP4) to the internal memory and an SD card simultaneously. This means you can capture high quality footage for personal use while sharing a slightly lower resolution, quicker to transfer version, with smart devices and social media sites.
