Realize the Filmmaker in You
Show the world your cinematic vision with the Canon LEGRIA HV40 High Definition (HD)
camcorder. Designed for the aspiring filmmaker in mind, this high-performance camcorder
is powered by the superb DIGIV DV II processor and offers greater customizability for
meticulous users. And because the LEGRIA HV40 records on the DV tape format also used by
professionals, you have the power and flexibility to create your very own video masterpiece.
Complete Editing
Flexibility with MiniDV
The LEGRIA HV40 records videos on MiniDV
tape, which offers increased flexibility
compared to other recording formats.
They are also affordable and can be found
in most consumer electronics shops.
Superior Technology
for Better Videos
Image Processor
The LEGRIA HV40 uses the advanced
DIGIC DV II processor to carry out high-speed
processing of HD video data. An onboard
noise reduction system gives you cleaner,
sharper images while precise color
reproduction and a wide tonal range means
your videos look convincingly lifelike.
Full HD CMOS Sensor
A Full HD CMOS sensor with 1920 x 1080
recording pixels captures high-resolution
imagery with fine detail with minimal noise
even in low light conditions. Working in
tandem with the DIGIC DV II, this state-ofthe-art sensor delivers impeccable image
quality guaranteed to impress even the most
meticulous viewer.
Why MiniDV?
• MiniDV tapes are proven industrystandard. Most high-end broadcast
camcorders use it for its durability
and reliability.
• Can be used for High Definition
(HD) and Standard Definition (SD)
recording; records stated duration
regardless of video quality.
Custom Key
• Edit-friendly format supported by
most video-editing software.
• Videos recorded on MiniDV tapes
can be converted to other formats
suitable for e-mailing or archiving
(i.e. AVI Type, MPEG Type).

Shooting Features
with A Professional Touch
This customizable key can be assigned
to any of the following functions for
quick access.
• Assist Functions (Zebra / Peaking)
• Backlight Correction (Off / On)
• Marker Display (Horizontal / Grid)
• Magnify (Off / Magn. / Magn. Rec)
Innovative Cinema Mode
Full-Featured Still Shooting
Lend your videos a cinematic feel during recording with the Cinema
mode feature. It uses the same frame rate (PAL: 25P / NTSC: 24P)
adopted by professional filmmakers to add a touch of sophistication
to your work. A CINE AE mode is also available to give your videos a
traditional celluloid film appearance without changing the frame rate.
The LEGRIA HV40 can be used to capture
photos just like a digital camera. Still shooting
features include continuous shooting,
exposure compensation, and selectable
image size and quality.
Video Light & Flash
To achieve the maximum potential of the Full HD CMOS, a Canon
HD video lens with aspherical lens elements is used to ensure image
reproduction accuracy. A gradation Neutral Density (ND) filter helps
to prevent blown highlights, while a powerful 10x optical zoom range
lets you get up-close and personal to your subjects easily.
The LEGRIA HV40 has a high-powered LED
video light that can be used to brighten up
subjects when shooting video. A built-in flash
does the same when shooting still images.

10x Optical Zoom
Super Range Optical Image Stabilizer
By combining electronic shake detection with gyros that move
the lens to correct the path of incoming light, Super Range Optical
Image Stabilizer ensures extremely steady videos over a wide
frequency range.
2.7” Widescreen LCD Display
An advanced accessory shoe enables you to
expand the functionality of the LEGRIA HV40.
Connect a more powerful video light for
better low light shooting or a stereo
microphone for improved audio recording.
Review your videos easily on the crystal clear 2.7” LCD (approx. 211,000
dots). The screen can also be swivelled for high or low angle shooting,
as well as mirror shooting.
HDMI Connectivity
When the camcorder is connected to any HDMI-compatible TV display
via its HDMI interface, it will analyze the unit’s capabilities and configure
it to best display your videos.
High-Speed Video & Still Transfer
Instant AF System
The Instant AF System combines an external AF sensor with Canon’s
legendary auto focus system for fast and accurate focusing that
meets the demanding requirements of HD video.
After shooting is completed, a FireWire IEEE1394 interface lets you
transfer your videos to a computer in double-quick time. A USB 2.0
full speed terminal does the same for still image transfers.
