Canon Vixia HF G30

 

20x zoom lens. 1080p60 video capture. LPCM audio. EVF. Wi-Fi. Dual shoes. Mic and headpone connectors. Manual focus ring. Dual SD slots. Includes wireless remote control. Padded handstrap

Very expensive. Bulky. Limited still resolution. No internal storage

The Canon Vixia HF G30 is expensive, but if you're serious about home movies it's worth the money.

Canon Vixia HF G30 Camcorder Review

 

$1,699.99 buys one heckuva Vixia

If you don't mind paying a $600 premium, the G30 delivers some of the best performance we've ever seen.

Canon LEGRIA HF G30

Canon Vixia HF G30

 

The Canon Vixia HF G30 is expensive, but if you're serious about home movies it's worth the money.

The G30 records video in AVCHD or MP4 format at 1080p60, 1080p30, or 1080p24 quality. Even though the camera only has a single 1/2.84-inch image sensor, a departure from the 3-chip design used by the Panasonic X920, the footage looks great. It’s...

Good quality at a reasonable price.

 

I chose this camera for my work in the performing arts. It's been a good choice for us to post clips of performances online. The image quality is good even under high contrast stage lighting. It was fairly easy to figure out and use right away. Just...

Fantastic in Darkness

 

This camcorder is more than positively surprising in darker environment. It finds focus even by candle light. It has a handful body, convenient to handle.
