The LEGRIA HF M406 combines a high resolution, high contrast 3 LCD screen with innovative touchscreen controls featuring high visibility icons for all of the most common functions when shooting and viewing images. When filming, you are just a touch away from selecting your shooting mode, changing flash settings or adjusting exposure compensation. A single touch to a face or an object on the screen will also set auto focus.The focus will remain locked on the selected face/object whether it, or the camcorder, moves and the exposure will always compensate automatically. The HD CMOS Pro sensor ensures detail is captured in high contrast scenes. With the success of the HD CMOS PRO sensor on the professional Canon XF100 camcorder the HD CMOS Pro sensor has now been added to the LEGRIA HF M range of camcorders. The HD CMOS Pro sensor gives you previously unseen levels of detail even in tricky lighting conditions like high contrast scenes e.
A white wedding dress against a black groom's suit. With its large pixels the HD CMOS PRO sensor is able to shoot in low light conditions and indoors using just the available light. This enables you to keep on shooting even as the sun starts to go down.
The HD CMOS Pro sensor has been optimised to capture video at Full HD (1920x1080) resolution offering a significant advantage over more conventional high-resolution CMOS sensors which have to resize their images to digitally create a full HD image. This digital processing can compromise on quality but with the Canon HD CMOS PRO sensor only the true native image will be played back on your HD TV. Superb zoom with image stabilisation.
The new Powered Optical Image Stabilizer ensures shake-free movies every time. The 10x optical zoom HD video lens offers you the versatility to really explore your creative options and get up close and personal, even with faraway subjects, like at sporting events or concerts. Because it comes with four zoom speeds, three preset and one variable, zooming is always effortless and steady. With fingertip control of three stabilisation modes, Canon's Dynamic Optical Image Stabilizer ensures your movies will always have a smooth, professional look. Easily switch from Standard Mode to Dynamic Range when you want to stabilise heavy hand shake on the move, for example when walking, shooting from a moving car or climbing up and down stairs.
For even more powerful stabilisation, Powered Optical Image Stablizer can be activated by the touch of a button to boost compensation for camera shake when shooting at maximum telephoto range. Change standard scenes into cinematic creations. 25p Cinema Mode gives you more detail in light and shadow areas. The LEGRIA HF M406 camcorder comes with Video Snapshot and 25p Cinema Mode.Cinema Mode combines a frame rate, similar to traditional film, with special CINE colour settings to give you more detail in light and shadowy areas - just like the feature films you see at the cinema. You can select either Cinema Mode or CINE colouring as well as choosing from eight Cinema-Look Filters including Vivid to accentuate primary colours, Old Movies to create grainy, scratched results, Sepia to add a sepia tint for an antique look and Dream to create a magical look for dreamlike scenes. Video Snapshot mode is a fun and easy way to create great video montages without the need for a PC. Simply press the record button to capture 2, 4 or 8-second standard definition clips from your HD originals, either during filming or playback, then select a series of clips and create a'playlist' in one file for an easy multi-shot movie. This can then be set to music, chosen from the pre-loaded rights-free tracks on the camcorder or from the selection supplied on the accompanying CD. Alternatively you can link the camcorder to any mobile MP3 player through the Mic terminal and upload your own music tracks. Additionally, this camcorder now comes with a new Story Creator feature.
This exciting tool encourages users to select from five preset themes e. A holiday, a birthday etc. Airport, hotel and the beach that match your chosen activity. After filming, this tool then empowers you to categorise your videos by theme, on the camcorder, all without the need for a PC.
For added filming functionality you can also set your camcorder to Pre REC mode, where it will start recording three seconds before you even press the Record button. Three seconds of footage are continuously stored and automatically added to the beginning of your clip from whenever you start filming - you need never miss that crucial moment again. With Quick Start standby mode you can also power up the camcorder in less than a second by simply flipping open the LCD screen. With Photo Burst you can also capture stills from a sequence of recorded video. With a press of the Photo button 25 individual shots are created from a single second of video - a fun way to capture the best scenes as photographs.
Sharing has never been easier. The LEGRIA HF M406 incorporates an inbuilt HD-SD converter, so you can easily compress your HD movies for uploading to internet sites like YouTubeT. All you have to do is select HD-SD conversion when you copy your movie from one memory source to another. Smart Auto mode analyses the scene and selects the appropriate settings. Intelligent by design for the perfect image.
To ensure top quality, true-to-life video under any lighting conditions, the LEGRIA HF M406 boasts Canon's Smart Auto technology that was pioneered in their digital still cameras. Smart Auto's scene recognition technology optimises settings according to the situation - detecting people, distance, brightness, colour and movement information - then selects the perfect settings from 31 specially defined scenes. Unique to Canon HD camcorders, Instant AF (auto focus) uses two auto focus sensors to help you find the perfect focus with speed and accuracy.
This is great for HD movies where errors in focusing can be more noticeable. The first sensor quickly estimates the distance to the subject, while the second makes fine adjustments for absolute precision. It's effective even when shooting at night or with slow shutter speeds and it works so fast - refocusing takes place in about 0.5 seconds - you may not even notice it's there. The LEGRIA HF M406 connects to a wide range of accessories via a mini Advanced Accessory Shoe which is cleverly hidden at the rear beneath a plastic flap.
What's more, with direct print capability you can print your still photographs directly from the camera without the need to connect to a PC. Over 70 years of lens excellence.
