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.
