Canon introduces the VIXIA HF G50 4K plus two water and shock-proof options with the VIXIA HF W11 and VIXIA HF W10 camcorders.

According to official press releases, Canon has unveiled their “first G-Series Camcorder” with the new VIXIA HF G50 which can record 4K at 30fps and with 20x optical zoom.

Canon has also announced two additional new “lifestyle” camcorder options with the waterproof and shockproof VIXIA HF W11 and VIXIA HF W10 camcorders.

Let’s take a look at these three new camcorder options.

VIXIA HF G50

Introduced as the first G-Series camcorder to feature 4K video recording at 30fps, the VIXIA HF G50 promises to be a solid option for run-and-gun filmmakers, videographers (specifically for wedding videographers as Canon suggests) and journalist and student reporters.

“As filmmaking and videography continue to grow into a more ubiquitous medium of visual expression, it is imperative that creatives have products that help capture their unique vision. Not only is Canon eager to view what our users create with the VIXIA HF G50, we are excited to be with them along the way as their skills and ideas further evolve into the future.” - Kazuto Ogawa, president and COO, Canon U.S.A., Inc
