Clear, blur-free movies
Packed full of technologies, the LEGRIA HF R406 makes it fun and easy to capture special family memories in stunning detail. Canon’s Intelligent IS technology ensures clear, blur-free video by automatically detecting different types of camera shake and then selects the most suitable stabilisation setting from four modes. An enhanced Dynamic IS mode also employs a five-axis optical Image Stabiliser to correct rolling and rotational camera shake that occurs when shooting and walking.
Capture superb image quality
Featuring a first-class HD Camera System, comprising a 3.2MP Full HD CMOS sensor and Canon’s new DiG!C DV4 imaging processor, the LEGRIA HF R406 offers higher image quality in low light. DiG!C DV4 combines a substantially improved image stabilisation function with Canon’s optical Image Stabilizer to deliver stunning shake-free video.
A high-quality Canon HD video lens – with 32x optical zoom and support for a 53x advanced zoom – offers exceptional quality throughout the zoom range thanks to Canon’s advanced IS technology. A Full HD CMOS sensor ensures videos are sharp in detail and rich in tonal range, so users can record special moments as they remember them.
Advanced Audio Performance
To complement exceptional visuals, the LEGRIA HF R406 features Canon’s Audio Scene Select technology. Enhancing the quality of the internal microphone, Audio Scene Select features five different modes with sound settings optimised for the scene being shot, including Noise Reduction, Music and Speech. Users can simply select the most suitable mode for their scene and let the camera do the work, allowing them to focus solely on capturing the moment in front of them.
