Canon 20X HD Video Lens (35mm equivalent: 26.8mm - 576mm) with Eight-Blade Circular Aperture and Manual Focus Ring
The VIXIA HF G30 comes equipped with a Canon 20X HD Video Lens featuring aspherical lens technology to high resolution and low chromatic aberration. This lens features an 8-blade circular aperture, reducing the "starburst" effect commonly found in camcorders with non-circular apertures. That being said, the lens delivers beautifully circular, blurred backgrounds that lend an authentic feel to your videos. You'll also get a manual focus ring that gives you absolutely precise control over your focusing to get the results you want. The manual focus ring can be easily set to control zoom as well.

HF G30

1080/60p Recording in MP4 and Native 24p Progressive Mode
The Canon VIXIA HF G30 delivers the highest quality recording with either MP4 or AVCHD files. You'll capture images at 1080/60p and a rate of 60 frames per second, meaning diagonal noise is pretty much eliminated and even you'll capture your fast-moving subjects crisply. The VIXIA HF G30 also features a maximum bit rate of 28Mbps for AVCHD recording. All of this equals beautiful detail in your videos with faithful renderings of edges and enhanced color and tonal gradation so that you can fully take advantage of Full HD recording.

The VIXIA HF G30 has a Native 24p Progressive Mode that allows you to capture and record 24 frames per second instead of the standard 60i, which offers a more traditional cinematic quality to your videos. A must for any serious filmmaker!

2.91 Megapixel HD CMOS Pro Image Sensor
You'll love the HF G30's professional-level 2.91-Megapixel Full HD CMOS Pro Image Sensor. Your pixels are significantly larger and more sensitive than other consumer camcorders so that you get a wide dynamic range and plenty of quality, even in low-light shooting situations.

HF G30

DIGIC DV 4 Image Processor
The VIXIA HF G30 incorporates the latest and most advanced Canon HD Image Processor, the DIGIC DV 4 Image Processor, which is a significant upgrade on several fronts. The DIGIC DV 4 Image Processor helps enable impressive low-light shooting for brighter, noise-free images even in dark scenes. Dramatically increased processing power lets you record in both easy-to-share MP4 and AVCHD formats simultaneously.

Built-In Wi-Fi Technology
The Canon VIXIA HF G30 features built-in dual-band (5GHz / 2.4GHz) Wi-Fi technology so you can easily share your HD videos - transfer files to FTP servers for backup, share videos over the internet with Canon iMage Gateway, or connect with compatible networks, wireless hotspots and iOS® mobile devices using the free Canon Movie Uploader app.

HF G30

HF G30

Dual Memory Card Slots

HF G30

Dual Recording in MP4 and AVCHD
Dual Recording and built-in transcoding help ensure that you'll have the right format available for your needs. With the powerful DIGIC DV 4 Image Processor, the VIXIA HF G30 camcorder can simultaneously record video in AVCHD format to one SD card,and MP4 format to the other SD card. The widely used MP4 format provides quick, conversion-free playback on tablets and smartphones and lets you upload videos directly to social networking sites for easy sharing with friends and family. AVCHD is perfect for watching videos on an HDTV or archiving them to Blu-ray discs. The camcorder also has a built-in transcoding function that converts AVCHD files to MP4s, or from MP4 to MP4 across memory media, making them easy to upload to the Web or save to an SD card.
