Yes, it does!!! In fact, the Canon HF r406 can not be used without a flash memory inserted into the draw, for this purpose.
I recommend you use a flash memory of at least 4
gb.
This, you will have to buy, and insert yourself. Full instructions come with the camra.
This flash memory should give you up to an hour's filming, or more.
Please always remeber to recharge the removeable battery after each filming session. This camra can also be used with a direct mains lead, for extended filming.

Hi Sunny, and thanks for your question.
I can confirm that the Canon LEGRIA HF R406 Digital Camcorder does not have any internal flash memory. It had a slot that will take all size and speed SD, SDHC and SDXC cards which are available from Argos. The Canon LEGRIA HF R46 model does come with 8GB of internal flash memory.
I hope this answers your question.

Hi, thank you for your question.

Having looked into this for you, I can confirm that the Canon LEGRIA HF R406 Full HD Camcorder - Black has a night mode. This allows the minimum amount of illumination needed to function to 0.4 lux (0.4 lux is approximately equivalent to the light given by a full moon on a clear night).

Thank you for using Argos Q&A.

Question
Displaying HDMI Video Images on a TV without the need to record
I would like to use the R406 Camcorder for some of the time to display HD video images live when connected to an HD TV or projector without recording the image displayed. If the Camcorder is connected via an HDMI cable from the camcorder to an HD TV or HD Projector, will display the image live from the camcorder on the TV display (or a projector) without the need to record something and then play it back?

Hi turning_kites, and thanks for your question.
The LEGRIA HF R406 Camcorder can be connected to a HDMI enabled device and you can view the screen without recording. Simply connect and switch the HF R406 on and it will come up on screen or projector you are attached to via HDMI.
I hope this answers your question.

Hi Anthony, and thanks for your question.
You can connect the LEGRIA HF R46 to a iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch and Android devices via the free Movie Uploader App. This will allow you to transfer and watch movies via the HF R46 wirelessly. You cannot control the Legria HF R46 via this App as this is not a feature that is available.
I hope this answers your question in full.

Hi karch, and thanks for your question.
The LEGRIA HF R406 does not have a thread on it so you cannot attach an extra lens like a fish eye lens to the camcorder.
I hope this answers your question in full.
