Canon Middle East announced the expansion of its 4K camcorder LEGRIA range with two new models - the LEGRIA HF G50 and LEGRIA HF G60.

As a 4K entry point, the LEGRIA HF G50 boasts a 1/2.3-type sensor with manual control, coupled with optics and processing for image quality while 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 detail and dynamism. Canon say both camcorders are integral to the growing range of 4K products, paramount for the market as consumption and demand for 4K content picks up. 

The LEGRIA HF G50

With a new 4K sensor, the LEGRIA HF has Full HD with 4K oversampling, making this camcorder ideal for those looking to take their first steps into the world of 4K video. 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, Canon's signature sensor-based, phase detection Auto Focus (AF) technology - the LEGRIA HF G60 is aimed at enthusiast users looking to tell stories by capturing in 4K. Dual Pixel CMOS AF allows for smooth, high-performance focus tracking and fast autofocus acquisition, enabling users to create professional-looking pull-focus keeping a subject moving towards the user in sharp focus while maintaining a blurred background.  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 and image quality.

Both camcorders feature circular apertures for smooth bokeh. In addition to this, the LEGRIA HF G50 and LEGRIA HF G60 both have powerful, wide angle optical zoom lenses, 20x and 15x. With customisable focus speeds, both camcorders can achieve smooth focusing enabling them to prioritise the look of a movie or the urgency of capturing ‘the shot' for a documentary.

Both the LEGRIA HF G50 and LEGRIA HF G60 support Canon's advanced Image Stabiliser (IS) technology. Shake-free, professional-looking content is maintained optically with high quality mechanical compensation for up-down/left-right camera movement, plus electronically with intelligent correction of roll and tilt. In addition to this, they both support adjustable exposure with built-in ND filters for wider apertures or slower shutter speeds.

With both models featuring a highly responsive 3.0-inch (460,000 dots) capacitive touch screen and a 0.24-inch tilting high resolution electronic viewfinder, users can be confident the images are framed perfectly. The LEGRIA HF G50 and LEGRIA HF G60's responsive touchscreen provides the ability to adjust tracking, focus and exposure, and their electronic viewfinder. Both camcorders accommodate for dual recording with two SD card slots.

Ideal for households already upgraded to a 4K television, both camcorders provide users with the ability to play their footage. With mini-HDMI connector, the LEGRIA HF G50 and LEGRIA HF G60 connect directly to 4K TVs making viewing footage fast and easy.

Binoj Nair, Senior Manager - B2C Marketing and Direct Sales, Canon Middle East, commented: "4K Ultra High Definition video is a powerful, flexible next step in storytelling, introducing more options for the video enthusiast to capture the finest details. Created with customer requirements of superior quality, ease and portability in mind, the LEGRIA HF G50 and LEGRIA HF G60 join Canon's growing portfolio of 4K-ready products. With this type of content becoming the ‘norm', these camcorders provide the resolution to suit every creative project."
