Superb low light performance, stunning results

The HD CMOS PRO sensor delivers stunning picture quality even in low light, as well as wide dynamic range and realistic colour reproduction. Designed and made by Canon for its professional camcorders, the light gathering area of the pixels is significantly larger than conventional CMOS sensors, increasing low light sensitivity. The sensor provides wide dynamic range; ensuring fine details are captured regardless of bright or dark conditions.

Optical Intelligent Image Stabilisation

Optical Intelligent Image Stabilisation

Sharp detailed movies every time

Image stabilisation reduces blur when you’re shooting handheld or on the move. Powered and Dynamic Optical Image Stabilisation compensate for camera shake, helping to ensure smooth, undistorted movies in any conditions – even when shooting while walking.

The Intelligent IS system also automatically detects the shooting environment and selects exactly the right optical Image Stabiliser settings from 4 modes to counteract movement and prevent blur, leaving you free to concentrate on filming without worrying about camera shake.
