Expanded Product Features
  • 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.
  • Instant AF
    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.
  • Cinematic 25p shooting
    The LEGRIA HV40 gives you the option of true 25p (progressive) shooting. It is 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 2.07-megapixel 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.
