Equipped with a powerful 21.14MP 1/2.3” UHD 4K CMOS sensor and a DIGIC DV 6 image processor, the G50 is capable of producing some of the best quality footage for a wide range of media applications. It can record slow and fast motion videos, as well as perform interval recording in both HD and 4K. Complementing the internal optics is its lens, which offers a wide 29.3 angle of view and 20x optical zoom, which allows zooming up to 627mm while recording in 4K. Its 8-blade circular aperture creates stunning background bokeh while its 5-axis advanced image stabilization helps control camera shake, which becomes more noticeable at longer focal lengths. The camera also features up to five programmable buttons, a custom dial, a joystick, and a lens ring, so you can have full control of its settings. Its built-in electronic viewfinder can be tilted and the touchscreen LCD can also be adjusted for easy viewing and added control of camera settings. The G50 comes with a BP-820 battery back, lens hood with lens barrier, and the CA-570 compact power adapter with cable.

Detail and color reign supreme with the large-format CMOS Sensor, which combines with the DIGIC DV 6 Image Processor to deliver brilliant results on any screen. An advanced 20x Optical Zoom lens gives you impressive telephoto power and a wide-angle of view, while the 5-axis Image Stabilization system provides the steadiness and focus you need for your productions. With 4K resolution, amazing features, and mobile-friendly design, the VIXIA HF G50 gives you stunning video quality on the go.


Key Features and Benefits


4K UHD 30p Recording

The combination of a large-format, high-sensitivity CMOS sensor and Canon's DIGIC DV 6 Image Processor with Over Sampling HD Processing enables 4K UHD recording with outstanding image quality. The DIGIC DV 6 Image Processor instantly analyzes a scene, taking into account dozens of image parameters. It then selects from the HF G50 camcorder's array of technologies to provide fully optimized results, capturing every detail while reducing image noise, even in low light. An advanced automatic white-balance system analyzes different areas of an image and makes adjustments where they are necessary to capture beautiful, natural scenes with true-to-life color.


Genuine Canon 4K-compatible 20x Optical Zoom Lens and Wide 29.3mm Angle of View

The VIXIA HF G50 camcorder features a Genuine Canon 4K-compatible 20x Optical Zoom lens. It offers a 35mm equivalent of 29.3-601mm, with a minimum object distance of just 23.6 inches (600mm) and 0.4 inches (10mm) at the wide end. Incorporating advanced elements and coatings, it helps reduce flare, ghosting and other distracting effects to deliver sharp, clear images with minimal distortion.


Advanced Full HD

The VIXIA HF G50 represents Canon's Full HD System, delivering the truly excellent image quality and reproduction for most any application. Its Over Sampling HD Processing utilizes the image data delivered by the powerful 4K UHD CMOS Sensor to enable Full HD recording that is nothing short of stunning.


Intelligent 5-Axis Image Stabilization

Canon's sophisticated SuperRange Optical Image Stabilizer helps correct camera shake quickly, so even handheld video taken at long focal lengths can be sharp and steady. The VIXIA HF G50 camcorder's DIGIC DV 6 Image Processor enables its versatile Dynamic Image Stabilization mode.


Providing continuous adjustment throughout the entire zoom range to correct a broad range of motion, with extra compensation applied at wide-angle focal lengths, the Dynamic Image Stabilization system on the HF G50 stabilizes rotational camera shake. Controlling rotational camera shake-horizontal, vertical and roll axis-helps ensure smooth, virtually distortion-free video, even when you're walking while shooting.


DIGIC DV 6 Image Processor

The VIXIA HF G50 camcorder incorporates Canon's DIGIC DV 6 Image Processor, which is integral to providing high image quality, advanced performance, and convenient operability. This advanced core technology component provides the image-processing power and speed that enables features such as 4K UHD video acquisition, image stabilization, and slow and fast motion recording.


8-bladed Circular Aperture

The VIXIA HF G50 camcorder features an 8-bladed Circular Aperture, which helps reduce the "starburst" effect found in camcorders with non-circular apertures. The result is that points of light in out-of-focus areas, usually the background of your shot, are circularly blurred, creating beautiful images with an authentic and artistic feel. The professional touch of a manual focus ring allows accurate and precise control.
