Canon VIXIA HF G30 Black Flash Memory Camcorder - 8454B001

The flagship of Canon's VIXIA Series of consumer camcorders, the VIXIA HF G30 offers numerous professional-quality features, including a Genuine Canon 20x HD Video Lens and 8-Blade Circular Aperture for superb video quality and natural, beautiful background blur. And new Dynamic SuperRange Optical Image Stabilization helps ensure your subjects are virtually blur-free. The HD CMOS Pro Image Sensor and DIGIC DV 4 Image Processor work in tandem to capture a large dynamic range and reduce noise. The new DIGIC DV 4 Image Processor also enables recording in MP4 up to 35 Mbps and AVCHD up to 28 Mbps – and even simultaneously with Dual Recording thanks to two high-capacity SDXC-compatible memory card slots. Slow- and Fast-Motion recording is available in MP4 format between 40% and 250% of the original speed.

Built-in Wi-Fi® technology lets you share video files easily by sending them wirelessly to your PC or favorite social network using familiar internet browsers, smartphones or tablets. Remote control of key camcorder functions is also available via Wi-Fi® functionality from a web browser. An optional accessory adds GPS location data to video files.
