The flagship of Canon's VIXIA Series of consumer camcorders, the VIXIA HF G30 offers numerous professional-quality features, including a Genuine Canon 20x HD Video Lens and 8-Blade Circular Aperture for superb video quality and natural, beautiful background blur. And new Dynamic SuperRange Optical Image Stabilization helps ensure your subjects are virtually blur-free. The HD CMOS Pro Image Sensor and DIGIC DV 4 Image Processor work in tandem to capture a large dynamic range and reduce noise. The new DIGIC DV 4 Image Processor also enables recording in MP4 up to 35 Mbps and AVCHD up to 28 Mbps - and even simultaneously with Dual Recording thanks to two high-capacity SDXC-compatible memory card slots. Slow- and Fast-Motion recording is available in MP4 format between 40% and 250% of the original speed.
Built-in Wi-Fi® technology lets you share video files easily by sending them wirelessly to your PC or favorite social network using familiar internet browsers, smartphones or tablets. Remote control of key camcorder functions is also available via Wi-Fi® functionality from a web browser. An optional accessory adds GPS location data to video files.
A 3.5-inch OLED Touch Panel Display helps ensure fast and easy camcorder control, while a tiltable electronic viewfinder and joystick streamline critical focus adjustment. Flexible image quality, control and display options make for intuitive, speedy and comfortable operation, no matter what your chosen shooting style.
Newly designed Genuine Canon 20x HD Video Lens (35mm equivalent: 26.8mm – 576mm) with 8-Blade Circular Aperture and Manual Focus Ring delivers exceptional image quality with smooth backgrounds and precise control.
The VIXIA HF G30 features a Genuine Canon 20x HD Video Lens offering a 35mm equivalent of 26.8mm–576mm with a minimum object distance of just 23.6 inches (60cm). As with all Canon high definition video lenses, aspherical lens technology is used to achieve low chromatic aberration with high resolution while maintaining compact dimensions. Super spectra coating technology lowers flare and ghosting.
The VIXIA HF G30 breaks new ground with its 8-Blade Circular Aperture, which reduces the "starburst" effect found in camcorders with non-circular apertures. The result is that points of light in out-of-focus areas, usually the background of your shot, are beautifully circularly blurred, creating a more authentic and artistic feel. The professional touch of a manual focus ring allows accurate and precise control. For extra flexibility, the manual focus ring can be easily set to control zoom instead.
