Canon intros Vixia HF G30 camcorder with Wi-Fi, 20X lens
Canon has introduced a new flagship G-series camcorder, the <a href="">Vixia HF G30</a>, geared for advanced amateur videographers. The camera features a new wide-angle f/1.8 lens with 20X zoom capabilities, built with the same ultra-low dispersion glass that is used in the company's pro equipment, while the new CMOS sensor has been enlarged over its predecessor for improved light sensitivity and reduced noise.<br /><br />Taking inspiration from Canon's EF-series lenses, an eight-blade circular aperture is claimed to create a smoother out-of-focus area compared to the previous G-series camcorders. Users can also take advantage of a manual focus ring, switchable to control zoom.<br />
<br />
Other improvements include 1080/60p MP4 recording capabilities alongside the existing AVCHD Progressive option, along with a 2.5-inch OLED touchscreen and a Wi-Fi radio. Recording options provide control over color temperature, shutter speed and storage to dual SD cards.<br />
<br />
Canon has also added Wi-Fi capabilities, enabling users to remotely control the camera and change settings via a web browser from a computer, smartphone or tablet. The system provides further options for uploading and sharing to iOS devices via free App Store titles.<br />
<br />
The Vixia HF G30 is expected to ship in June for $1700.
