I met up with Ben Thomas of Canon to find out what the new line of cameras were this year. Ben showed me the HF-R series including the VIXIA R42, R40 and R400 cameras. These cameras come with an improved CMOS sensor for low-light situations and can connect to Wifi like the R300 to upload.
The Canon camera also has the ability Stream Video to Device for remote control recording and monitoring. By downloading theÂ CameraÂ Access app from the store you can view the video on an iOS or Android device.
The HF-R series also has 53x Advanced Zoom and a Genuine Canon HD Video Lens so you can bring the camera up close and still get everyone in the shot.
The VIXIA HF-R series will start at $299 for the HF-R400, $399 for the R40 and $499 for the R42.
