The Canon Legria HF G10 Flash Memory PAL Camcorder brings professional capabilities to those who seek to do more while staying within the means of a consumer budget. It shoots 1920 x 1080 high definition video and with a native 25p frame rate option, you can give your footage a truly cinematic look. Using Cinema-Looks Filters you boost that film look with nine built-in adjustable filters. Some choices include Cinema Standard, Dramatic B&W, Nostalgic, Old Movie, and Sepia. You can also shoot video that's optimized for the Internet with the 30p Progressive mode.
The Canon 1/3" HD CMOS Pro Image Sensor boasts excellent low light performance and a wide dynamic range, giving you flexibility unseen in most consumer camcorders. Working with the sensor to create each shot is Canon's DIGIC DV III Image Processor. The image processor reduces noise, corrects color for life-like reproduction, and also powers a number of proprietary Canon features like Smart Auto and the Cinema-Look Filters. The HF G10 is also equipped with a generous 3.5" touch panel LCD display, a color viewfinder, optical image stabilization, and a Genuine Canon 10x HD Video Lens. The lens boasts an 8 blade iris, and a 4.25-42.5mm focal length(30.4-305 35mm equivalent). Other important basics include 10x optical zoom, a 58mm filter diameter, and a number of terminals. Connections include USB 2.0, Component and Composite outputs, a mini HDMI, as well as headphone and microphone jacks.
The HF G10 features excellent audio as well. You can record audio via the built-in microphone and headphone jacks that you can monitor with manual audio level controls. If you're looking to capture 5.1 Channel Surround Sound the HF G10 lets you do that as well using the optional SM-V1 microphone from Canon. The camera does feature a built-in stereo microphone as well, which affords directional adjustments, as well as frequency adjustments. The HF G10 also packs in a number of shooting functions. Among the functions usually found on consumer models, the HF G10 also comes outfitted with custom key and dial, composition aids, and advanced control like manual exposure, aperture priority, and shutter priority. There's also face detection, Instant AF and Advanced Video Snapshot. It comes packaged with Canon's Pixela Video Browser Software and is compatible with Windows XP (SP2 and SP3), Vista, and Windows 7.
