Designed to please anyone who is interested in capturing high quality video footage, the Canon Legria HF G40 offers a nice balance of features, easy-to-use functionality and quality to keep amateurs and enthusiasts alike, happy and fulfilled. Thankfully this camcorder has Dual SD card slots available, because you won't want to stop filming once you begin.
Superb HD movie footage
Recording in the MP4 format, the Canon HF G40 utilises its high sensitivity 1/2.84 type HD CMOS Pro sensor to capture Full HD video at 60fps. This high-resolution footage will please even the more critical enthusiasts’ eye and can easily be manipulated in post-production to explore more advanced techniques, such as slow-motion.
A Wide to Tele stabilised Zoom lens
The lens on the front of the HF G40 is well-suited to tackle the majority of your shooting needs, starting at a wide angle equivalent of 26.8mm and offering 20x magnification, which takes it out to a very long 576mm. This basically means you will not struggle to frame your movies, whether you are trying to capture wide and vast sceneries, or you are zooming across an open field to record your playing children.
On hand to offer assistance throughout this long zoom range is an exceptional 5-axis Image Stabilisation system. This will ensure your videos retain their smooth and steady appearance, even handheld at long magnifications, or while you are moving and shooting simultaneously.
