Canon Unveils New LEGRIA HF G26

News Image
Canon has launched a new Full HD camcorder – the LEGRIA HF G26.

The LEGRIA HF G26 offers a 28.8mm wide-angle lens with 20x optical zoom, superb optics, low-light capability and 8-blade circular aperture, which can create circular bokeh effects. Video enthusiasts and filmmakers alike can capture Full HD 50p footage.

The camcorder features an Intelligent Image Stabiliser (IS) that compensates for 5 axes of camera movement, which is important for steady filming while on the move and capturing shake-free smooth footage even at extreme zoom, thanks to Powered IS. To support Full HD clarity, the LEGRIA HF G26 features Instant Autofocus for the rapid and precise identification of the subject position and distance.

Using the three-position switch, users can alternate between Manual, Auto and Cinema modes without changing individual settings. With up to 20x optical zoom, the LEGRIA HF G26 enables the creative capture of video from wide shots to extreme close ups, capturing even distant subjects in Full-HD quality. Using a Wide Dynamic Range of 600 per cent and Highlight Priority looks, the LEGRIA HF G26 records Full HD 50p at 35Mbps delivering high-quality footage, while evenly distributing tones and managing areas of brightness.

The combination of a 2.91MP 1/2.84-Type HD CMOS Pro sensor and DIGIC DV4 processor delivers light sensitivity, contrast and wide dynamic range without compromising Full 1080p HD. This allows filmmakers to capture content in conditions with light as low as 0.1 lux, ideal for video enthusiasts capturing nighttime documentaries. Similarly, the LEGRIA HF G26 offsets overexposure in bright conditions with its built-in ND Filter reducing the amount of light that reaches the sensor.

The customisable settings enable video enthusiasts to utilise the LEGRIA HF G26 to their own shooting preferences. With responsive and state-of-the-art controls, the LEGRIA HF G26 is a compact, simple-to-use, hand-held device that is perfect for capturing on the go. Fitted with a professional grade zoom rocker, lens ring with fingertip light sensitivity and custom dial and buttons, the LEGRIA HF G26 provides content creators with maximum artistic control when shooting.

A responsive 3.0-inch capacitive touch screen ensures the image can be framed perfectly, with the ability to adjust tracking, focus and exposure for a high-quality outcome. For full visibility when capturing footage, especially in bright conditions, users can adjust the 1.56 million dot electronic tilting viewfinder up to 45° for low-angle shooting and to reduce glare.

Simultaneous AVCHD and MP4 recording gives users the freedom to capture Full HD resolution up to 35Mbps MP4/28Mbps AVCHD and as low as 3Mbps MP4/5Mbps AVCHD and comes with several advanced recording options, such as slow and fast capture with a maximum speed of 1200x.

The LEGRIA HF G26 has dual SD card slots, and boasts a HDMI terminal for a range of advanced interfaces, including connectivity to a 3.5mm headphone and 3.5mm mic jack, plus Mini Advanced Shoe input. The built-in headphone output with 16 volume settings for accuracy and the microphone input, both enhance audio functionality to support video enthusiasts recording interviews and vlogs.

The LEGRIA HF G26 will be available from April 2018.
