What is the Canon LEGRIA HF R46?
Canon LEGRIA HF R46 – Features
Canon LEGRIA HF R46 – Controls
In this mode, you can still access Canon’s esoteric decoration effects, which include the ability to draw on the frame as you shoot, add a variety of particle effects and animations, date and time stamp the video, add a graphical border, or temporarily pause the picture. These are all things we would do at the editing stage, but if you don’t plan to edit they could come in handy.
However, it’s easy to switch from auto to one of the other shooting
modes using an onscreen icon. There’s a baby mode, where you can add
stamps to mark videos of particular stages of your new child’s
development. There’s a Cinema mode, which shoots video with one of seven
different film-like effects. You can choose from nine scene modes,
including the usual portrait, sports, snow and beach.
There is no fully
manual option, however, just Programmed AE. This enables the option to
vary brightness up and down by 1 or -1 in quarter increments, but with
no direct control over shutter or iris. You can focus manually too.
These facilities are also available in Cinema mode.
