Canon HD Camera System
The LEGRIA HV40 inherits all the benefits of the Canon HD Camera System from its award-winning predecessor, the HV30. The unique combination of a genuine Canon HD Video Lens, a Full HD CMOS sensor and the DIGIC DV II processor delivers superb HDV1080i (High Definition Video), recorded to tape.
Even slight focusing errors show up in HD footage. The LEGRIA HV40 employs Instant AF, Canon’s unique hybrid auto focus system, to achieve pin-sharp focus at speed.
10x zoom and Super Range OIS
A genuine Canon HD Video Lens with a 10x optical zoom is constructed to the most exacting standards – drawing on Canon’s expertise in broadcast lens manufacture. A Super Range Optical Image Stabilizer compensates for vibrations across the frequency range, combating camera shake.
Custom Key and assignable Control Dial
The LEGRIA HV40 gives moviemakers more manual control over shooting variables. A Custom Key lets you choose what function you’d like to assign to the manual Control Dial: choose to control features such as focus, exposure, or audio level.
Advanced Accessory Shoe
With an Advanced Accessory Shoe, adapt the camcorder to your specific needs – a range of optional peripherals, including a video light and a directional microphone, can be added. Manual audio level control gives you precise control over audio recording. Quickly connect to a compatible HD TV or computer via HDMI.
Cinematic 25p shooting
The LEGRIA HV40 gives you the option of true 25p (progressive) shooting. Combined with a special CINE image mode, shoot movies that have the look and feel of traditional film. 25p also provides improved low light performance.
Simultaneous photo shooting
Thanks to DIGIC DV II, shoot 2.07MP photos and video simultaneously, with photos stored to MiniSD card. A range of dedicated photo features is available, including a one-push histogram for monitoring brightness levels. It’s easy to print photos on any PictBridge compatible printer.
Via an AV input connection, transfer analogue footage (including your old home movies) to digital tape – ideal for archiving.
Optional long life battery
If you’re planning a long shooting day, the LEGRIA HV40 is compatible with Canon’s optional high capacity battery (BP-2L24H) – cutting down the need to carry spares.
