Built-in Electronic Lens Cover The Built-in Electronic Lens Cover means you never have to go looking for your lens cover again. Turn your camcorder on and the lens cover automatically opens. Turn it off, and the cover closes. It couldn’t be simpler.
Quick Start Never miss a quickly unfolding shot again, as it’s possible to shoot the moment the LCD is opened. No worries about using up power with Quick Start- by keeping the LCD screen closed between shots, Quick Start allows you to save battery power so you get longer battery life.
Pre-Record The Pre-record feature places your VIXIA HF R100 in a stand-by "pre-roll" mode. With this feature the camcorder continuously records three seconds of video to memory before you even press the record button. When you start recording, the additional video is recorded too. It will be easier than ever to capture the moment when the bat hits the ball at the start of that home run.
Pixela ImageMixer 3SE Video Editing Software is bundled with the VIXIA HF R100. You can easily perform a variety of functions, including AVCHD Editing in which you can trim, reorder, and combine scenes, as well as add music, titles, and transitions. This software also allows you to play your AVCHD movies on your computer and will also let you share copies of your movie with friends and family through flash memory to hard drive copying. Transfer and store your movie onto your computer's hard drive with the software and easily convert your high definition video to standard definition video as well. This software will also assist you in converting video to the optimum resolution for transmission over the Internet.
With Pixela ImageMixer 3SE, you can burn your edited video onto Blu-ray disc, AVCHD DVDs (which play in AVCHD compatible Blu-ray disc players), or onto standard definition DVDs. And to complement the VIXIA HF R100's Video Snapshot feature, a music CD containing royalty-free soundtracks is also provided.
* The bundled application is compatible with Windows XP and Windows Vista
DVD Burner Compatible You can also easily burn DVDs of the video shot with your VIXIA HF R100 as it is compatible with Canon's DW-100 DVD Burner. A one-cable connection is all it takes to send the files across and with the click of a few buttons, your videos will be burned to an AVCHD disc for play in a compatible DVD player.
