57x (32.5-1853mm) Advanced Zoom and Super Range OIS
You won't miss any of the action when shooting video with the VIXIA HF R82 camcorder and its impressive 57x Advanced Zoom range. Long-range shooting allows you to create videos with dynamic variety, and is less likely to disrupt the action you're shooting. It's ideal for formal ceremonies, animals in the wild, candid family videos and more. Available in manual mode, Advanced Zoom takes the camcorder's telephoto power from 32.5mm all the way to 1853mm (35mm equivalent) for amazing flexibility in shooting. For more convenient shooting and better creative control over your videos, the camcorder offers continually variable Zoom Speed settings with 15 levels available.
SuperRange Optical Image Stabilization
Canon's sophisticated SuperRange Optical Image Stabilizer helps correct camera shake quickly, so even handheld video taken at long focal lengths can be sharp and steady. Providing continuous adjustment throughout the entire zoom range to correct a broad range of motion, the Dynamic Image Stabilization system on the VIXIA HF R82 camcorder stabilizes rotational camera shake. Controlling rotational camera shake - horizontal, vertical and roll axis - helps ensure smooth, virtually distortion-free video, even when you're walking while shooting.

DIGIC DV 4 Image Processor
The VIXIA HF R82 camcorder incorporates the powerful DIGIC DV 4 Image Processor for outstanding imaging performance.

You can also backup your video directly to an external hard drive by using the optional UA-100 USB Adapter.
MP4 1080/60p Recording
The VIXIA HF R80 camcorder gives you high-quality MP4 recording. 1080/60p recording captures a large amount of information, virtually eliminating diagonal noise so even fast-moving subjects can show up crisply.
