Canon Vixia HF G30

 

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

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.

Video Quality and Conclusions 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...

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

 

A pricey but brilliant pro-grade camcorder

Expensive ; Relatively large and heavy

Instruction manual is on a CD. Not exactly usefull for outdoor filming quick reference.

Love this camera

 

I bought this camera to record high school sports. The picture is bright and clear. It allows you to record in either MP4 or AVCHD. I do wish that the MP4 setting had a midrange compression setting because the 17 mbps is really high for MP4 and...
