Canon's VIXIA HF G21 camcorder offers the optical refinement and advanced performance features found in many higher-end camcorders in a lightweight, portable and easy-to-use package. Using a Genuine Canon 20x High Definition Optical Zoom lens and an advanced HD CMOS Pro Image Sensor with great low-light performance, the VIXIA HF G21 camcorder provides sharp, Full HD video with beautiful highlight and shadow detail in virtually every lighting situation. A DIGIC DV 4 Image Processor speeds up operation and enables the lens's powerful image stabilization to help provide clear and stable images, even when shooting handheld. The VIXIA HF G21 camcorder has a 3.0-inch touch-capacitive screen, and a tiltable electronic viewfinder. A host of manual controls are complemented by two modes: Wide DR Gamma and Highlight Priority, which help capture color and detail virtually consistent with how they're seen by the naked eye. Creative options are expanded with an interval recording option that can capture fast motion of up to 1200x the original speed. Ideal for an incredible variety of uses, the VIXIA HF G21 is a stellar choice for anyone looking for dynamic results, at home, on the job and even on the go.

Genuine Canon 20x High Definition Optical Zoom Lens

The VIXIA HF G21 camcorder features a Genuine Canon 20x HD Video Lens offering a 35mm equivalent of 26.8–576mm. With advanced elements and coatings, it helps reduce flare and ghosting, producing sharp, clear images with minimal distortion.

8-blade Circular Aperture

The VIXIA HF G21 camcorder features an 8-blade Circular Aperture, which helps to avoid the "starburst" effect of point light sources in non-circular aperture designs. Out-of-focus areas are smooth, natural and appealing. The professional touch of a manual focus ring allows accurate and precise control. For extra flexibility, the manual focus ring can be easily set to control zoom instead..

Advanced HD CMOS Pro Image Sensor

The VIXIA HF G21 camcorder features a 1/2.84-inch, 2.91 Megapixel HD CMOS Pro Image Sensor that captures approximately 2136 x 1362 pixels, for sharp and detailed high-definition video recording. The high sensitivity of VIXIA HF G21’s sensor helps provide vivid, accurate recording through an excellent signal-to-noise ratio..

Superb Low-light Performance

Featuring a low-luminance noise rating of +3 dB, the VIXIA HF G21 camcorder is able to capture clear, sharp images with incredible detail even in low light..

1080/60p Recording in MP4

The VIXIA HF G21 camcorder gives you high-quality recording whether you're capturing MP4 or AVCHD files. 1080/60p recording captures twice the amount of information as 60i, and with images captured at a rate of up to 60 frames per second, diagonal noise is virtually eliminated so even fast-moving subjects show up crisply with motion and patterns clearly recorded. This greater sense of detail and faithful rendering of moving edges, plus enhanced color and fine tonal gradation, gives your video everything Full HD has to offer. And the VIXIA HF G21 can record in internet-ready, easy-to-share MP4 format at up to 35 Mbps. The VIXIA HF G21 also features a maximum bit rate of 28 Mbps for AVCHD recording, the highest in the AVCHD standard. In either format the image quality is outstanding.
