Canon Europe has announces expansion for its 4K camcorder Legria range with two new models – the Legria HF G50 and Legria HF G60.

As an entry-point to the world of 4K, the Legria HF G50 is designed to capture and future-proof special moments in higher resolution – boasting a 1/2.3-type sensor with manual control, coupled with premium optics and processing.

The Legria HF G60, with its 1.0-type sensor, provides advanced users with the ability to shoot vivid and stunning movies in 4K UHD.

The latter – supporting Canon-developed Dual Pixel CMOS AF – is perfect for those looking to capture extra detail and dynamism. Both camcorders are integral to Canon’s growing range of 4K products, paramount for the market as consumption and demand becomes increasingly mainstream.

With a new 4K sensor, the Legria HF G50 captures outstanding levels of detail in 4K or Full HD with 4K oversampling. Allowing the user to push their creative ability, the Legria HF G50 with its 20x wide-angle zoom lens and f/1.8 – f/2.8 maximum aperture, offers greater control over depth of field and excellent low-light capability, resulting in clearer and more vibrant content.

Supporting Dual Pixel CMOS AF, the Legria HF G60 is aimed at enthusiast users. Dual Pixel CMOS AF allows for smooth, high-performance focus tracking and fast autofocus acquisition.  With its large 1.0-type sensor and maximum f/2.8-4.5 lens aperture, the Legria HF G60 also gives smooth control over depth of field.

The Legria HF G50 and Legria HF G60 both have powerful, wide angle optical zoom lenses, 20x and 15x respectively. Both the Legria HF G50 and Legria HF G60 support Canon’s advanced Image Stabiliser (IS) technology.

Both models feature a responsive 3.0-inch (460 000 dots) capacitive touch screen and a 0.24-inch tilting high resolution electronic viewfinder.  The touchscreen lets users adjust tracking, focus and exposure, and their electronic viewfinder.
