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

Canon LEGRIA HF G30

 

A pricey but brilliant pro-grade camcorder

Comprehensive manual settings ; Lens ring and assignable dial ; Excellent image quality

Expensive ; Relatively large and heavy

Canon Vixia HF G30

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...

Great Value

 

This camera has been great so far in the first few months of use. The low light sensitivity has been second to none, and the image quality is very good. Wifi control using my tablet has been a very handy feature as well. I am very happy with the...

This device does it all

 

This camera/camcorder does all that I expected. It takes crisp and clear video, takes still pictures, and has a shield that can be removed or left on that is supposed to dim out unwanted light or glare. The only negative thing I have to say about the...
