Canon LEGRIA HF G26 Video Camera

For fast and discreet Full HD filmmaking on the move, the compact, and powerful LEGRIA HF G26 offers a compelling blend of portability, easy workflow and pro levels of performance thanks to a Canon 20x HD Optical Zoom lens and an HD CMOS Pro Image Sensor.

  • The LEGRIA HF G26 has a powerful, fast f/1.8-2.8 20x optical zoom lens with a 26.8mm wide-angle coverage. Hi-UD (Hi Index Ultra Low Dispersion) glass ensures reduced chromatic aberration while 5-axis optical and electronic image stabilisation reduces image distortion and an 8-blade circular aperture with EMD (Electro Magnetic Diaphragm) technology ensures footage is natural and beautiful.
  • With its HD CMOS Pro sensor, the LEGRIA HF G26 offers excellent low light sensitivity.  Featuring a wide DR for beautiful tonality and Highlight Priority mode for rich expressiveness in high-brightness areas, recording 50P at 35Mbps delivers efficient, high quality footage helped by a DIGIC DV 4 processor supporting advanced image stabilisation plus slow and fast motion recording.
  • Recording Full HD footage in AVCHD and MP4 formats at multiple bit rates, content can be recorded simultaneously with Dual SD card slots for easy workflow. A 3 Mbps mode produces smaller file sizes making it much easier to transfer files for immediate use.
  • The LEGRIA HF G26 features an HDMI interface for connection to a wide range of accessories such as an HD television for viewing footage directly, the dedicated Mini Advanced shoe for the DM-E1 microphone and VL-5 Video Light plus a headphone jack to monitor sound levels and 3.5mm mic jack for an external microphone.
  • Lightweight and compact, LEGRIA HF G26 features a 3.0-inch touchscreen, a custom dial for adjusting exposure settings, a 1.56 million dot tiltable electronic viewfinder (EVF) and manual focus/zoom ring and joystick for easy control plus a professional zoom rocker for smoother zooming. Manual, Auto and Cinema modes add extra control and creativity.

Whitchurch, Shropshire GB Experienced amateur
You can great results straight out of the box using AUTO mode. Spend a bit of time reading the full (downloadable) Instruction Manual and there are a host of extra features and options available.
The section in the Instruction Manual describing the use of the custom button and custom dial is a bit misleading and took a long time to discover these worked in conjunction with the record program and not by itself.
