Don't let the budget friendly price fool you. Whether you're just getting into outdoor videography, or looking for a clean and crisp 2nd camera angle, the Canon VIXIA HF R800 is perfect. This little powerhouse is full of professional features, and its stunning HD image quality will blow your friends away! Introduced with the HF R800, backlight correction within the Highlight Priority mode for brighter images. The backlight correction analyzes the incoming video signal and recognizes your subject within the frame, and will expose for the subject, rather than an overexposed backlit background. This way if the sun is behind your subject, you can still get a vibrant image.

For all day hunts, you can throw in a couple of  64GB card and film for nearly 12 hours! And, if you throw a couple extra BP-727 batteries, you'll have plenty of power to film that recovery after dark.

The Canon VIXIA HF R800 has a 32x optical zoom that will bring that buck in close, and with the superb optical quality of Canon's lens, he'll look just as good 200 yards out as he will on your wall. For those times when you really need to draw him in, you can use the 57x advanced optical zoom. Normally reserved for high end production cameras, this type of telephoto capability is rarely found on smaller cameras! And with the Intelligent Image Stabilization, the guys back at camp will never know how much you were shaking when your son pulled the trigger!


Designed with outdoor videographers in mind, the camcorder also comes with a high quality microphone input. This connection makes it possible to get even better audio with a Rode VideoMic mounted to the camera using the Wrap Around Mount for the Canon HF Series Cameras (not included). And, if you plug in a good set of headphones, you may even hear that bruiser coming before you see him!

After the hunt's over, insert your SDHC card into your computer. A little basic editing with a user-friendly software and you're ready to show the world through Facebook, Youtube, or even DVD. Recording and sharing your adventures has never been easier.
