Product Description:

Canon Legria HF-G40 3.09 Megapixel 20x Optical Zoom Digital Video Camera

Ideal for professionals and students alike, the new Legria HFG40 features a powerful 1/2.84 type HD CMOS Pro sensor with high quality audio, full manual control and Wi-Fi, all in a compact body.


HD CMOS Pro Sensor
• The LEGRIA HF G40 features a newly developed Canon HD CMOS Pro Sensor featured a signal-to-noise improved by 3db and approximately 40% reduction in noise compared to the previous model (HFG30). This delivers exceptional high-sensitivity imaging performance It breaks new ground with its 8-Blade Circular Aperture, which reduces the "starburst" effect found in camcorders with non-circular apertures. The result is that points of light in out-of-focus areas, usually the background of your shot, are beautifully circularly blurred, creating a more authentic and artistic feel. The professional touch of a manual focus ring allows accurate and precise control. For extra flexibility, the manual focus ring can be easily set to control zoom instead.

HD Video
• The LEGRIA HF G40 features a Genuine Canon 20x HD Video Lens offering a 35mm equivalent of 26.8mm–576mm. As with all Canon high definition video lenses, aspherical lens technology is used to achieve low chromatic aberration with high resolution while maintaining compact dimensions. Super spectra coating technology lowers flare and ghosting.

Advanced Image Processor
• The LEGRIA HF G40 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.
