Canon Camcorders

Canon camcorders let you capture life's finest events, whether you're a casual home user or a professional videographer. They come with an array of advanced features that work together to create high-quality videos in various settings. Staples carries a wide selection of models ranging from pocket-sized units you can slip in a bag, to over the shoulder units with powerful outputs.

Image Quality
A Canon HD camcorder can shoot at a minimum of 1080p, for increased clarity. Combined with a DIGIC DV 4 image processor, it offers a true-color experience, even in low light and dark settings. The processing power increases the camcorder's recording capability for AVCHD and MP4 file formats with a built-in transcoding feature. Optical zoom lenses let you hone in on a specific area. Flip-out capacitive LCD and LED screens let you see exactly what the camera is capturing, and touchscreen ability makes it easy to select a focal point or track a specific subject. The screens have intuitive interfaces for implementing settings, navigating through various menus and playing back video.

If you record videos while on the move, choose a model that has an Optical Image Stabilizer. This feature works to keep the video steady, so you can walk around to capture events from different angles. The feature comes in particularly handy for recording wedding and graduation ceremonies. If you use your camcorder for capturing your child's growth progress, the Advanced Baby Mode lets you personalize the experience and saves profiles for up to three kids.

Internal and External Memory Formats
Many Canon camcorders come with internal memory, but the amount varies by model. Those with 32GB can record up to 12 hours, while others with 16GB support up to 6 hours of video. Memory slots work with SD, SDHC and SDXC cards that have between 32GB and 2TB of storage space. Some professional series use CF cards with multiple slots that allow for HOT swapping, or changing memory while recording, for a more cost-effective solution to storage needs. Camcorders that have the Relay Recording feature automatically switch to the memory cards when the internal memory is full, or from one memory card to another for those that lack internal flash drives.

Wi-Fi Connectivity
After recording, users can upload videos to various social networks using a PC or smart device. They can connect to a wireless access point or hotspot or use the Canon Movie uploader application to upload directly, immediately after shooting, to share with friends, family and co-workers. A Remote Browse function lets users wirelessly connect their PC to the camcorder to preview videos without the need for a cable or a special app.

Professional Features
Those looking to buy a Canon camcorder for professional use will find advanced features that improve production with increased efficiency. Instantly backup videos by recording to two memory slots at once using the double-slot recording feature. Ergonomic rotating grips improve comfort during long shooting sessions and select models let users stream video to let friends and family watch events they can't attend in person. Add a dramatic flair to videos using slow- and fast-motion speeds that record speeds of 40 to 250 percent of real time occurrences.
