Product Features in Detail

20x zoom, 26.8mm wide-angle lens, 8-blade aperture
The brand new 26.8mm wide angle lens provides better image quality than ever before in a compact camcorder, while the smooth 20x optical zoom lets you get closer to the action. A new, 8-blade circular aperture enables beautiful ‘Bokeh’ effect.

Wi-Fi Remote
Enjoy the freedom of controlling 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 tablets web browser.

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

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

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

Full Manual Control
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, allowing you to unleash your creativity.

Instant AutoFocus, Face Detection
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.

3.5” (8.8cm) fold-out OLED touchscreen and tiltable EVF
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 (0.24”) 1.56 million pixel electronic colour viewfinder can tilt up to 45° to allow you further control especially in bright conditions

Studio connectivity and wireless support
The LEGRIA HF G30 offers an advanced selection of interfaces, with physical inputs conveniently grouped together and designed to keep connections in place during handheld use. All include integrated HDMI, microphone, USB and headphone terminals useful for many broadcast applications.
