Canon Legria HF G25 and HF R48, R46 and R406 camcorders revealed

Canon has unveiled the latest additions to its Legria camcorder lineup with the entry level Canon HF R48, HF R46 and HF R406 as well as the higher-end ‘prosumer’ Canon Legria HF G25.

Starting with the HF R range, they all feature optical image stabilisation as well as 32x optical zoom lenses as well as a new ‘Baby mode’ which is another name for the increasingly common pre-record function whereby the camera records the few seconds before you actually press the record button – apparently perfect for capturing your baby’s first steps.

All three also have Full HD CMOS sensors, 7.5cm touchscreens and record in AVCHD. What distinguishes them are the inclusion of Wi-Fi and the amount of storage they offer. The Canon Legria HF R48 includes 32GB of built in storage and has Wi-Fi built in, the HF R46 has Wi-Fi but only 8GB built in while the R406 doesn’t have Wi-FI and has no internal storage, with an SDXC slot instead to add your own storage.

The full specs of each are below:
