Canons LEGRIA HF R106 HD PAL Camcorder is an entry-level 1920 x 1080 high definition camera that records to SD/SDHC memory cards. In addition to capturing HD video in the MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 format, the HF R106 also captures 1.73MP digital stills in still mode, and using Canons Dual Shot feature, or from an already recorded movie. Other highlights of the camcorder include a number of Canons special technologies, such as Face Detection, and a solid array of core features.

Flash Memory Recording

The LEGRIA HF R106 allows you to record up to 12 hours of video to removable SD memory cards. The advantages of flash memory go beyond the added recording time. You'll also appreciate the quick response time, because there are no moving parts. In addition, when you review, you'll have quick access to your footage. Another plus is the LEGRIA HF R106's low power consumption rate, allowing your battery to last longer. And if your HF R106 happens to slip, or you accidentally knock it against something, you'll be happy to know that flash memory makes your camcorder more shock-resistant than other recording storage systems. It also minimizes the chance of data loss if there is damage to your recording media or to the moving parts found in other camcorders

Stunning HD Image Quality

A Genuine Canon 20x HD Video Lens delivers excellent image quality, while the Canon Exclusive 2.39MP HD CMOS Image Sensor captures video at 1920 x 1080 resolution and photos with astonishing detail, while the Canon Exclusive DIGIC DV III Image Processor provides impressive color and imaging performance, with enhanced reproduction of difficult to capture purple and blue tones

2.7" Widescreen LCD Display

The 2.7" LCD on the HF R106 lets you see more of what your camcorder is recording. The screen delivers bright, clear detail and the widescreen format means there's no need to imagine what your final image will look like on your widescreen television because it's not squeezed into a small space while you're shooting. What you see will be what you get

Dynamic Image Stabilization

With the Canon HF R106, you can be sure that even on the move your video will be smooth and steady. Dynamic IS provides continuous adjustment throughout the entire zoom range to correct a broader range of motion. In comparison to conventional electronic image stabilization systems, extra compensation is applied at wide-angle focal lengths to eliminate unwanted vibration that is common when walking

Built-In Digital Camera

The LEGRIA HF R106, in addition to being a camcorder, is also a digital camera. The LEGRIA HF R106's Dual Shot makes it easier than ever to capture both video and photos. Shoot up to 3 frames per second in the Continuous Mode, or a blazing 5 frames per second in the High Speed Continuous Mode. The versatile LEGRIA HF R106 even lets you capture a still image from an already recorded movie. While playing the movie in your camcorder, simply press the photo button to capture a 1920 x 1080 photo onto an SD card or to internal memory. Additionally, the LEGRIA HF R106 allows you to capture 30 photos from one second of video. And in addition to all that your LEGRIA HF R106's built-in flash lets you capture superb photos indoors and in low light conditions, and also features red-eye reduction

Auto Intelligent Auto Focus

Auto Intelligent Auto Focus, AiAF, ensures sharp images and gives creative flexibility. Even when your subject isn't in the center of the frame, the LEGRIA HF R106's 9-Point AiAF will automatically select from 9 metering frames on the screen to help bring images into sharp focus

Selectable Metering Patterns

For optimal still image exposure, the LEGRIA HF R106 offers selectable metering patterns: Evaluative, Center-Weighted Average, and Spot

AE Bracketing Feature

The AE Bracketing feature of the LEGRIA HF R106 automatically takes three versions of the shot, with 'dark,' 'normal' and 'light' settings in 1/2 exposure steps so you may choose the one that best suits you

Histogram Display

For the advanced digital photographer, the LEGRIA HF R106 comes with a Histogram Display - a feature found in Canon's line of digital SLR cameras. The display allows you to see the brightness information of your still images, so you can adjust your exposures as you shoot

Smart Auto

Smart Auto makes shooting great video easy. Using the power of Canon's DIGIC DV III Image Processor, the LEGRIA HF R106 intelligently detects and analyzes faces, brightness, color, distance, and movement, then automatically selects the best settings for the scene

Genuine Canon Face Detection

The same Face Detection technology used in Canon digital cameras is available in the LEGRIA HF R106 high definition camcorder. Up to 35 faces can be tracked automatically, ensuring razor-sharp focus and natural, accurate exposure. Of the faces tracked, 9 detection frames can be displayed at one time. The system is in fact so smart that it will recognize faces turned downwards or sideways.

In addition, a specific face may be selected as the main subject for continuous tracking. This feature can be used to search for clips featuring that specific subject's face. In search and playback, use of the Face Index will display frames with the chosen face as a thumbnail in each shot in which it appears. The selected face can be linked as a timeline to further identify footage containing that subject

Advanced Video Snapshot

Advanced Video Snapshot allows you to capture the highlights of your adventures with the same ease as taking photos. Simply record a series of short video clips - or select your favorite clips while in Playback Mode - and blend in your favorite background music to create an exciting movie that will grab everyone's attention. This version of Advanced Video Snapshot allows selectable recording time (2, 4, or 8 seconds). Additionally, audio from an external source such as an MP3 player can be played along with the Snapshot movie, and playback can be controlled from that source


To maximize the usefulness and versatility of the LEGRIA HF R106, you'll find a range of terminals to extend the capabilities of your camcorder. Easy, one-cable connectivity to your HDTV is achieved through the LEGRIA HF R106's HDMI Terminal which also supports CEC and x.v.Color


The Pre-record feature places your HF R106 in a stand-by "pre-roll" mode. With this feature the camcorder continuously records three seconds of video to memory before you even press the record button. When you start recording, the additional video is recorded too

Quick Start

With Quick Start, you'll never miss a quickly unfolding shot again. When the HF R106 is in Camera Mode and the LCD panel is closed, it is placed in standby. When the action starts, open the LCD panel and you'll begin recording in less than one second. You'll also help extend your battery life as compared to leaving the camcorder in regular recording mode
