Details

True video enthusiasts and advanced amateurs will find their inspirational match in the new Canon VIXIA HF G20. Designed to rival pro-level camcorders in image quality, it's equipped with a Genuine Canon 10x HD Video Lens with 8-bladed iris for stunning quality video and soft, beautiful background blur. The camcorder's Canon HD CMOS Pro Image Sensor provides extraordinary flexibility with extended dynamic range, enhanced gradation, and significantly more light capture for 20% improved low-light performance.

You'll record up to 12 hours of crisp HD video to a 32GB internal flash drive or simultaneously to two memory card slots (SDHC and fast, high-capacity SDXC). For extra assurance Relay Recording automatically switches recording to the SD memory cards when the internal drive is full so you never miss a moment - the second card takes over automatically when the first becomes full. Dynamic SuperRange Optical Image Stabilization keeps your video smooth and blur-free, even at the long end of the zoom, and Intelligent IS ensures effortless stabilization no matter what the shooting situation. The VIXIA HF G20 can deliver simultaneous output to both the Electronic Viewfinder with pro-style large eye cap, and the bright 3.5-inch Touch Panel LCD. For easy, high-quality shooting, Smart AUTO automatically recognizes and selects proper settings for 38 different scenes, and the camcorder's rich array of manual functions and Professional Shooting Assist Functions bring a new level of control to your video. Your creativity is further supported with newly customizable Cinema-Look Filters to alter the mood and intensity of your video, and Touch Decoration options to add an element of fun and excitement.

HF G20

Genuine Canon 10x HD Video Lens (35mm equivalent: 30.4mm – 304mm) with 8-Blade Iris delivers exceptional image quality with smooth backgrounds for professional-looking results
The VIXIA HF G20 features a Genuine Canon 10x HD Video Lens which offers a 35mm equivalent of 30.4–304mm. It delivers unsurpassed image quality, the versatility of a wide angle of view and smooth and professional-looking background images thanks to a sophisticated 8-blade iris. The professional touch of a dedicated manual focus ring allows accurate and precise control. Combined with Canon's Exclusive HD CMOS Pro Image Sensor, it captures video with stunning resolution, superb low-light performance, and a wide dynamic range.

Canon's DIGIC DV III Image Processor provides stunningly realistic color and sophisticated noise reduction for exceptional low-light performance. It is also the high-speed engine that powers a variety of Canon technologies including Smart Auto, Touch & Track, Genuine Canon Face Detection, and Cinema-Look Filters.

You will also find that exceptionally lifelike tone and detail are captured thanks to 24Mbps Recording. The VIXIA HF G20 not only captures images in Full HD, but records and outputs at 1920 x 1080 as well, so you get Full HD from lens to screen.

And with Tele Macro, the VIXIA HF G20 automatically zooms the lens to the telephoto end and sets the minimum object distance to approximately 1.3 feet (from 3.3 feet) giving you the opportunity to shoot spectacular close-ups with the dramatic look of shallow depth-of-field. Tele Macro is one of 38 scenes available in Smart Auto Mode.

HF G20

Outstanding Video Resolution (800 Vertical and 900 Horizontal TV Lines)
Since the effective number of pixels of HD CMOS Pro is equal to 1920 x 1080, resizing is eliminated, allowing Full HD video to be captured and recorded with professional precision.

Superb Low-Light Performance (1.2 lux)
Because each individual pixel is larger and more sensitive, each is capable of capturing more light, allowing high quality video to be achieved even in dimly lit conditions. The sensitivity of the HD CMOS Pro Image Sensor is approximately 20% better than the HD CMOS Pro Image Sensor found in the 2011 VIXIA HF G10 camcorder.

HF G20

Record up to 12 hours of crisp high-definition video to a 32GB internal flash drive or directly to 2 memory card slots (SDHC/SDXC compatible); Relay Recording automatically switches video recording to the memory card when the internal drive becomes full
The VIXIA HF G20 allows you to record up to 12 hours of clear high definition video to a 32GB internal flash drive or to two SDXC-compatible memory card slots. With Relay Recording, the camcorder automatically switches video recording from the internal drive to the SD memory cards when the memory becomes full. When the first memory card becomes full, the second automatically takes over, so there's no need to worry about running out of recording time during a thrilling, once-in-a-lifetime shot. With SDXC memory card compatibility, you'll have card storage capacity from more than 32GB up to 2TB and ultra-fast data transfer speeds.

Dynamic SuperRange Optical Image Stabilization
The VIXIA HF G20 features Dynamic SuperRange Optical Image Stabilizer for the image stabilization critical for high definition video. Canon developed its sophisticated SuperRange Optical Image Stabilizer to do the job easily and automatically, providing continuous adjustment throughout the entire zoom range to correct a broad range of motion. Extra compensation is applied at wide-angle focal lengths to eliminate the unwanted shaking that is common when walking. The system corrects camera shake instantly, so even when you're shooting handheld video at the long end of the zoom, the image is sharp, steady and smooth.

HF G20

Intelligent IS
Intelligent IS makes it easy to shoot clear, sharply focused video, even in situations that typically cause camera shake. The Intelligent IS system analyzes the shooting situation for you, then automatically switches to the image stabilization method best able to produce sharp, steady video. Four IS systems cover the gamut of shooting situations. Dynamic IS corrects minor movement and the shaking caused by walking while shooting. Macro IS delivers perfectly steady close-up shots. Powered IS comes into play when you're using the camcorder's powerful zoom, correcting shake that can occur in telephoto shots. Tripod Mode stops IS when the camcorder is stationary.

3.5" Touch Panel LCD Screen
You will see extraordinary detail with this large, stunning 922,000 dot screen, which also provides approximately 100% coverage of your shooting scene. It delivers brilliant color combined with touch panel control for faster and easier menu navigation. You'll also have Touch & Track, which allows you to get precise focus and exposure on any subject – whether it's people, pets, or vehicles, by selecting your choice right on the Touch Panel LCD. And the additional Touch Decoration feature allows you to decorate your video with interesting effects.

For your convenience, the VIXIA HF G20 is also equipped with a 0.24-inch, 260,000 dot color viewfinder which provides approximately 100% coverage, for use in shooting when very bright outdoor light conditions may make it difficult to see the LCD display.

HF G20

Smart AUTO and Auto Tele Macro
Smart AUTO lets you capture clear, bright, well-focused video while the camcorder takes care of all the details. The system recognizes 38 shooting situations based on numerous factors, then automatically chooses the optimal settings for the situation. When you shoot a nearby subject in telephoto zoom mode, Auto Tele Macro gives your video the high-end artistic effect of a well-focused subject against a beautifully blurred background.

HF G20

Focus and Exposure Aids
To further enhance focusing capability the VIXIA HF G20 also features Focus Assist. It includes enlargement, which helps in capturing your subject in razor-sharp focus. It works by providing a 2x magnification of your subject, which is automatically cancelled when you start recording. This is a feature normally found in professional broadcast-quality cameras. Also included is color peaking, which shows the shooting object's focused areas in actual colors. With Canon's Edge Monitor Focus Assist system, a green monitor is shown at the bottom of the LCD Display. The green waveform shows overall focus of the image, and the height rises to indicate the area in focus. Through this dynamic focus feedback, you can intuitively tune focus in a scene and quickly change the zone of focus.

Increased Clarity, Adjustability
The VIXIA HF G20 camcorder's audio is an excellent match for its pristine image quality. The microphone has updated elements that increase clarity at medium and low frequencies, so even faint sounds are recorded clearly. Three microphone positions let you adjust recording to suit the position of the zoom or your subjects: front for monaural recording; regular for normal stereo effect; and rear for a wider, more enhanced stereo effect. Frequency response characteristics can be adjusted for the scene with several options. You can balance all frequencies for normal recording, emphasize low frequencies for impactful live music recording, attenuate low frequencies to reduce ambient noise, emphasize mid frequencies to focus on voices, or emphasize low and high frequencies to record live music with balanced lows and highs.
