With the certified refurbished VIXIA HF R80 camcorder, the power to create wonderful video memories with your family is at your fingertips. This lightweight camcorder gives you up to 6 hours of recording time and the flexibility of an extensive optical zoom, making it ideal to take on trips, everyday adventures and more. Start recording from the get-go with the easy-to-use interface, and expand your creative possibilities with versatile features such as flexible slow and fast recording. Highlight Priority mode has been improved with backlight correction to help produce stunning shots you can be proud of. Record remotely by using the VIXIA HF R80 alongside the free Camera Connect app* on your compatible smart device, and when you've picked your favorite video memories, upload them online for the world to see.

You won't miss any of the action when shooting video with the VIXIA HF R80 camcorder and its impressive 57x Advanced Zoom range. Long-range shooting allows you to create videos with dynamic variety, and is less likely to disrupt the action you're shooting. It's ideal for formal ceremonies, animals in the wild, candid family videos and more. Available in manual mode, Advanced Zoom takes the camcorder's telephoto power from 32.5mm all the way to 1853mm (35mm equivalent) for amazing flexibility in shooting. For more convenient shooting and better creative control over your videos, the camcorder offers continually variable Zoom Speed settings with 15 levels available.

Canon's sophisticated SuperRange Optical Image Stabilizer helps correct camera shake quickly, so even handheld video taken at long focal lengths can be sharp and steady. Providing continuous adjustment throughout the entire zoom range to correct a broad range of motion, the Dynamic Image Stabilization system on the VIXIA HF R80 camcorder stabilizes rotational camera shake. Controlling rotational camera shake – horizontal, vertical and roll axis – helps ensure smooth, virtually distortion-free video, even when you're walking while shooting.

The VIXIA HF R80 camcorder is equipped with a 3.28 Megapixel Full HD CMOS Image Sensor to capture your memories in true 1920 x 1080 resolution. Canon's advanced, high-resolution HD CMOS Image Sensor features extra sensitivity that delivers beautifully lifelike Full HD video with natural color, even in low light. On-chip noise reduction brings bright clarity to every frame. Video is rich, clear and amazingly detailed anywhere you view it, even when played back on a large HDTV.

Built-in Wi-Fi® technology on the VIXIA HF R80 camcorder lets you easily share your HD video with friends and family. Connect with compatible networks and devices using the free Canon Camera Connect app*. Share videos and photos with CANON iMAGE GATEWAY# – a free online photo storage service that lets you upload to social networking sites. For easy file transfer, you can also use CameraWindow DC to directly save your videos and photos to your computer.

    Easy to use

    Posted by Seth on Oct 5th 2018

    I purchased this camera for school. It got the Job done and has a great mic. My only problem is battery life, though that could have been my fault

    Excellent Battery and quality video

    Posted by daldriver on Sep 8th 2018

    I purchased this camera not so much for the video quality but for the the time it would run. I had to video several people for several hours at a time. The camera not only did this well, but also the battery lasted much longer than expected. Canon has a great product.

    Good camera, but lack of feature.

    Posted by applecider on Jul 8th 2018

    First of all, the picture quality is great. Touch screen is ok, not too great. Speaker is bad. The wifi is the problem here. I can not start or stop recording with the smart phone. Now a days, it is all about selfi and vblog. How am I supposed to use it for my online vblog? My smart phone functions better, at least I can get a blue tooth remote for it.

    Great camera that's easy to use!

    Posted by DocEd on Jul 8th 2018

    We purchased this camera to record some lectures I'm giving. Despite poor lighting and no dedicated microphone, the quality of the recordings has been really good. We have someone just tracking my movement to keep me in the frame of the recorder, but it's been trouble free and easy to use.

    Needs better instructions

    Posted by Bobby on Jun 8th 2018

    This camera takes very nice videos. It’s light and easy to use. The sound could be better. The wi-fi feature is terrible. Had to go on you tube and review videos with instructions how to use it but still didn’t work, Canon failed in this area, I have Nikon camera with wi-fi it worked right away, simple to use for photographs. If you want this feature for videos, try someone else.

    I bought this for my sons graduation

    Posted by Redman on Jun 8th 2018

    I bought this for my sons graduation which hasn't happen yet but still for it. Every body says you could use your cell phone. I don't use my cell phone for anything but calls. About this camera, it is awesome except none of the apps work worth a fudge. If you want to use it like a 2000 yr camcorder then its for you. If you want all of the trinkets with apps and all, good luck. Love the camera because it weighs a half a pound.

    Nice upgrade from my old Hi 8

    Posted by JonnyFlash on Jun 8th 2018

    Nice size. Pics and video are sharp. Try it with the battery in place at the store to see if you like the way it fits your hand. (The battery sticks out kind of far off the back and changes the balance a little).

    Storage directly to SD card is convenient. So is the wireless upload to my phone.

    Good camera

    Posted by videomAN on Jun 8th 2018

    many features b ut in order for you to know how to use them you need to download the full manual, main negative, mic in, hdmi out are hard to use on the side of the camera, it would be a great camera if these connections where in the back
