and precious moments.
Easy Shooting and Sharing with Wi-Fi Wireless Networking Function1 for Live
Monitoring and Video Uploading
LEGRIA HF R76 supports Wi-Fi Wireless Networking function, making it easy to
share high quality videos anytime, anywhere. You can enjoy one-stop convenience to
view, save and share videos to social networking sites such as Facebook and
YouTube directly on smart devices2 over a Wi-Fi network, or upload via Canon Image

The compatibility of Wi-Fi Wireless Networking function depends on the mobile device and operating
system
2
Supports iOS7 or above, “Movie Uploader” app must be installed; or Android 4.0 or above using
explorer for playback
3
"CameraAccess plus” app must be installed on smart devices. Mobile data will be consumed when
controlling and monitoring via internet; router must support Global IP Address acquisition and UPnP
4
FlashAir™ is a trademark of Toshiba Corporation
Gateway server when out. The camcorder supports MP4 video format for hassle-free
direct playback or upload via smart devices without file conversion.
With the live monitoring feature, you can perform remote control and live monitoring
via internet from your smart devices3, making it convenient and easy to keep an eye
on home when out, or take care of babies while sparing time for housework. When
installed on the supported Pan Table CT-V15, the camcorder can shoot within a 200º
horizontal panning range for a wider coverage. The Pan Table also supports 20º
manual adjustments in up/down direction to cater to different environment.
NFC Connection for Direct and Easy Video Transfer and Sharing
LEGRIA HF R76 supports NFC (Near Field Communication) for easy one-touch
connection to Android devices or wireless photo storage device Connect Station
CS100. Simply turn on the NFC function on your Android device and touch your
device to the NFC icon on the camcorder body, the “CameraAccess plus”
application6 installed on your device will be launched automatically, making remote
controlling and video sharing easier and quicker than ever. In addition, videos
captured by the camcorder can be sent to Connect Station CS1007 quickly via NFC.
With ample storage capacity, you can centralize all your videos in one place and
enjoy easy video viewing on TV and smart devices at full HD resolution.
New Auto Frame Assist Function for Easy Capture of Distant Subject
LEGRIA HF R76 and HF R706 offer a new Auto Frame Assist function to help users
capture distant moving subjects with ease. When a subject goes out of the frame
during telephoto shooting, the new auto function enables the camera to detect
automatically the movements that search out the subject, and it speedily zooms out
toward the wide end. When the user stops moving the camera, the zoom
automatically returns to its original position, and shooting can be continued from
there.
Just as in the past, users can also select a menu setting if they wish to perform this
operation by holding down the “Search” button on the touch monitor.

New Highlight Priority mode for Better Color Reproduction in Mid-to-High
Brightness Range
A new Highlight Priority mode is added to both LEGRIA HF R76 and HF R706. Since
there is no accompanying compression in the mid-to-high brightness range under this
setting, there is a greater capacity to reproduce the colors faithfully and create crisp
and sharp images, facilitating the capture of video that realistically conveys such
qualities as three-dimensional feel of blue skies and clouds, translucence of water
and luster of metals with improved sharpness of edges. During playback of video
shot with this gamma setting, increasing the brightness of monitor such as a
television can ensure the best viewing result.
Support Fast/Slow Motion Recording and newly added Time-Lapse Movie after
recording function for More Interesting Video Effects
LEGRIA HF R76 and HF R706 feature fast and slow motion recording function in full
HD MP4 format at up to 1200x faster and 0.5x slower, offering versatile imaging
effects for different stories. Stunning videos showing slow-motioned action scenes
with added cinematic tension or interesting fast motion effect can be created with
ease.
Newly added “Fast Motion conversion during playback” which writes Fast motion files
from the files of movies which have been shot, is also supported by LEGRIA HF R76
so that users can have more fun creating their own works of video and photographic
art.
Baby Mode Supporting 3 Sets of Registration for Easy Recording of Precious
Growth Journey
LEGRIA HF R76 and HF R706 offer a Baby Mode that supports 3 sets of registration
to help parents capture all the precious growth moments for each baby in an
organized way, also enabling convenient management and playback of baby’s
videos. When Baby Mode is on, the camcorders will select the most suitable settings
automatically including Intelligent IS mode and 3-sec Pre REC mode to ensure the
cutest faces are captured. After shooting, you can add age, height and weight
stamps to the videos for more attractive results. Videos shot in Baby Mode will be
automatically saved in a dedicated Baby Album, separated from the regular videos
for easy management. This also allows easy playback of baby’s videos in
chronological order to let you savor the precious growth journey with family and
friends.
Canon 32x Optical Zoom and 57x Advanced Zoom HD Video Lens for Flexible
Capture of Both Close-up and Distant Images
LEGRIA HF R76 and HF R706 are equipped with Canon 32x Optical Zoom and 57x
Advanced Zoom HD video lens, offering powerful tele-video recording capability for
more creative possibilities. The lens also offers a 32.5mm wide-end to enable the
inclusion of more surrounding elements to enrich the composition. Configured in 10
elements in 7 groups, the lens features aspherical lens element that can effectively
correct aberrations and image distortion to guarantee image sharpness in HD quality.
DIGIC DV 4 Digital Image Processor for Steady Videos in High Quality
LEGRIA HF R76 and HF R706 incorporate DIGIC DV 4 Digital Image Processor for
quick processing of massive HD data and supports multitasking. DIGIC DV 4
supports minimum subject illumination at 4 lux for easy production of sharp and
bright videos with minimized noise even in dim environment, enhancing the
camcorders’ performance at nightime or indoor.
5-axis Dynamic Image Stabilization System for All-Direction Image Stability
LEGRIA HF R76 and HF R706 support 5-axis Dynamic Image Stabilization System
for effective correction of camcorder movements across 5 axes, including tilt
movements along the horizontal, vertical and lateral axis, and up-down or left-right
shift movements. This guarantees high level of image stability in all situations.
Furthermore, image distortion due to tilt movements along the horizontal, vertical and
lateral axis can be substantially reduced, ensuring exceptional video performance
even shooting with a handheld camcorder while walking.
Versatile Video Formats for Different Scenes and Needs
LEGRIA HF R76 and HF R706 support a range of video formats for selection
according to different scenes and needs. Full HD recording in 1920 x 1080 resolution
is supported for exceptional video quality, and MP4 format with maximum 35Mbps
recording bit rate is available for clear capture of true-to-life videos with fine details.
Both camcorders also support full HD videos in 50p under AVCHD or MP4 format,
ideal for motion subjects such as sports or dance performance. Blur-free images can
be ensured, resulting in high quality videos showing clear movements.
Full HD Recording in Versatile Media and FlashAir™ Wi-Fi card for Easy
Wireless Browsing
LEGRIA HF R76 and HF R706 use SD, SDHC and SDXC memory cards as
recording media to bring more flexible recording capacity. Unconstrained recording
can be achieved simply by replacing the memory cards. In addition, LEGRIA HF
R706 supports FlashAir™ Wi-Fi card, allowing easy viewing of MP4 videos and
photos stored in the card using the FlashAir™ application or browser on your smart
device via a Wi-Fi wireless network. The dual memory camcorder LEGRIA HF R76
features a built-in 16GB Flash Memory and supports Relay Recording function.
When the Flash Memory is used up, it will automatically switch to SD, SDHC or
SDXC memory cards to continue the recording, ensuring no single moment will be
missed even for long time recording.
Enhanced LCD Brightness and Color Gamut makes operation unprecedentedly
simple
LEGRIA HF R76 and HF R706 have enhanced the LCD monitor display: brightness
has been increased by approximately 1.5times, overall color reproduction has also
been improved, ensuring easy checking of focus and image details for the optimal
result when shooting in bright outdoor environment.
