Compact, easy, and powerfully equipped with built-in Wi-Fi®, the VIXIA HF R52 is all the camcorder you need to preserve and share special moments both big and small. With the mega-sized 57x Advanced Zoom, you'll capture great shots from anywhere without intruding on the action. At the long end of the zoom, and even when you're shooting while walking, the camcorder's SuperRange Optical Image Stabilizer helps ensure steady video with beautiful clarity. The 3.28 Megapixel Full HD CMOS Image Sensor and DIGIC DV 4 Image Processor capture bright, sharp 1920 x 1080 Full HD video that will take your breath away. Record up to 12 hours of video on the 32GB internal flash drive, and enjoy extra storage capacity by recording directly to a removable SD card. Improved built-in Wi-Fi®* with the new CameraAccess plus app makes it easier than ever to share recorded video or live stream it on your Android™ or iOS® device**, and even control the camcorder remotely. And now, whether you're at home or away, you can use Wi-Fi® and your mobile device to remotely monitor a wide 200° area by connecting the VIXIA HF R52 to the optional new Camera Pan Table. Experience blur-free 1080/60p recording in MP4 (35 Mbps), and AVCHD Progressive (28 Mbps) that captures children, pets and other moving subjects with smooth, precise definition; Dual Recording lets you record in both formats simultaneously, and built-in downconversion creates easy-to-share MP4 files for the web. Advanced Baby Mode is a must for parents, making it super easy to capture the daily growth and development of up to three children, and automatically achieve the best quality in any situation without fussing with settings. Controlling the camcorder is fast and fun with an intuitive interface and 3.0-inch capacitive touch panel LCD, and a high capacity battery pack lets the memory-making go on and on.
