    • 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.

    Don't know why they discontinued this line up. It's an amazing HD Camcorder

    Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

    I bought this product to use for an independent movie I wanted to make. I did a lot of research and found that the HV40 was going to fit best within my budget and needs. It came through for me. Still using this but so far, everything I wanted was within this camera, and more importantly (for an amateur such as myself) what needed to be achieved was done so with ease. I don't know why they discontinued this series of camcorders because it was a great camcorder. The only thing I was a bit shocked with is that it doesn't record in 1080p, only 1080i and 720p although it boasts true HD 24p fps. Again, for an amateur it did not take anything away from what I wanted it for, but I spent a lot of time trying to find out how to get that setting until I found a forum that helped me out. Would I recommend this though, definitely. No better camcorder for amateurs. On a small budget? Try to at least save for this camcorder if you can find it. Worth the money.

    Still one of the best camcorders

    Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

    Still one of the best camcorders on the market. Great picture quality. Not the latest standard recording format, but the picture quality makes it worth it.

    DSLRs is for Photographers, this is for FILM!

    Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

    This camera is essential if you want to do TRU After Effects or Green Screen based effects.
    Add a DOF and a few lenses and you ready to produce a QUALITY HD production!
