2Share

Canon fans, rejoice! New at CES 2019, Canon fans will be happy to see that Canon has expanded its 4K consumer camcorder game with the VIXIA HF G50. The company has also added the waterproof, shockproof, and dustproof  VIXIA HF W10 and HF W11 models to the VIXIA lineup.

Leading the new pack, the HF G50 records in UHD 4K 30p for optimal imaging and offers a 35 Mb/s 1080p60 mode for when display or storage parameters preclude the use of 4K. 20x optical zoom produces Canon-quality visuals, featuring a wide 29.3mm angle of view, an 8-blade aperture for round bokeh highlights, and 5-axis image stabilization. A DIGIC DV 6 Image Processor speedily captures your images for display on a 3" touchscreen LCD display and a tiltable EVF.

Like its G40 predecessor, the VIXIA HF G50 incorporates handy functions such as five assignable buttons for customized control, a lens ring, joystick control, and dual SD card slots. Slow and fast motion, including interval recording, is available in 4K and full HD, enabling you to stretch out sports shots, condense natural phenomena like sunrises, or speed through your travels.

In addition to describing your trusty letter carrier, "Neither rain nor snow... nor gloom of night" could apply to Canon's consumer-friendly HF W10 and HF W11 (see the inscription on the landmark post office just one block from the B&H SuperStore, in New York City). These two VIXIA camcorders are waterproof down to 16', shockproof from up to 4.9' and able to withstand temperatures as cold as 14˚ F. The HF W11 incorporates an automatic LED light for brightening up darker scenes, and boasts 32GB of internal flash memory compared to the HF W10's 8GB.

Each camcorder records up to 1080 full HD video and can capture 2MP still photos simultaneously, an especially handy feature when covering social events. Both feature 40x optical/60x dynamic zoom, advanced image stabilization, a face-tracking function, time-lapse recording, and a 3" touchscreen LCD panel. The VIXIA HF W10 and HF W11's AVCHD output provides compatibility with iMovie and Final Cut Pro X, two popular consumer editing choices.

does HF W10 have an extended microphone mic jack?

Hi Clark, the HF W10 does not have an external mic input; you might want to look the VIXIA HF R82 which does have a mini-jack mic input.
