the mention of consumer camcorder kind of reminds us of America’s Funniest Home Videos. sorry. we just can’t shake off those blurry, overexposed moving images with occasional too-high-pitch scream of ‘oh my god!’ from our heads. we just can’t. and because of that we put behind camcorders and embrace our smartphones and regular digital cameras for our videoing needs. however, if you belongs to the picky amateur category, the current favorite camcorder replacements may not be right up your alley, and for that reason, there is the Canon VIXIA HF G30 Camcorder. the HF G30 sits outside the pro camera territory, but it is by no means inferior and so is its price – it is expected to retail for $1,699.99 when it hits the shelves this June. some of the features include a newly designed HD CMOS Pro sensor, a 20x wide-angle (35mm equivalent: 26.8-536mm), f/1.8 lens, a new DIGIC DV 4 processor, built-in WIFi with dual-band wireless support, MP4 recording, supports cinematic recording at native 24p, dual SD memory card slots, Relay Recording that automatically continues to record on the second SD card when the first one max out, a 3.5″ OLED touch panel display, a new .24″ high-resolution angle-adjustable color viewfinder, a seesaw-style zoom lever for ease of use, and last but not least, it works in conjunction with a dedicated app, allowing you to quickly save or upload videos via your smartphone. hit the jump for a few more look at the Canon VIXIA HF G30 Camcorder.
