Never knowingly undersold

Product information

Canon’s flagship Legria HF G30 camcorder packs high-specification optics, sensor and stabiliser plus Wi-Fi connectivity into a compact body. It’s ideal for enthusiasts who want to match their creativity with professional quality videos. The large OLED touch screen makes playback sharp and navigation simple. Along with a range of features like face detection and automatic audio-to-scene matching, this camcorder puts professional results in everyone’s hands.

Key benefits:

  • The brand new 26.8mm wide angle lens provides better image quality, while the smooth 20x optical zoom lets you get closer to the action. A new, 8-blade circular aperture allows for a beautiful ‘Bokeh’ effect to make your subjects pop.
  •  

  • Simultaneously record in different formats (AVCHD and MP4) or at different bitrates, to the dual SDXC card slots and enjoy the benefits of professional quality footage and easy upload to the web. Capture fast and slow motion when shooting in MP4 format.
  •  

  • Enjoy the freedom to control your Legria HF G30 when the camcorder is positioned out of reach. Control a number of settings, including shutter speed, focus and exposure wirelessly by using your smartphone or tablet.
  •  

  • With an effective pixel count of approximately 2.91 megapixels, the HD CMOS PRO sensor delivers stunning picture quality, even in low light, as well as wide dynamic range and realistic colour reproduction. The powerful DIGIC DV 4 image processor works with the sensor to provide images with lower noise and more depth.
  •  

  • Intelligent IS combats camera shake by automatically selecting the right optical image stabilisation from 4 modes to counteract motion blur. The advanced dynamic mode corrects roll and tilt movements that can occur when walking, ensuring sharp steady videos in every situation.
  •  

  • A manual lens ring allows intuitive control of focus or zoom. Exposure, aperture, shutter speed and gain can all be independently adjusted using the touch screen and customisable control dial.
  •  

  • Instant AF provides fast and accurate focusing for pin-sharp HD quality. Face Detection automatically optimises camcorder settings for perfectly-focused and exposed shots of people.
  •  

  • The responsive organic electrostatic LED touch screen, with a 1.23 million dot resolution, offers superior definition, contrast and colour reproduction over LCD. The 0.61cm 1.56 million pixel electronic colour viewfinder can tilt up to 45° for further control, especially in bright conditions.
  •  

  • Includes lens hood, adapter, controller, battery, USB cable, AC cable, HDMI cable and software.
