1.0-inch 4K UHD CMOS Image Sensor
The VIXIA HF G60 Camcorder features a Canon 1.0-inch 4K UHD CMOS image sensor capable of 4K UHD video capture at 60p and slow motion recording up to 60fps in Full HD (30 fps in 4K UHD), providing a number of creative options for any recording situation.
High Sensitivity / Low Noise
The VIXIA HF G60 camcorder’s 1.0-inch sensor allows for improved images with less noise in low-light situations. The larger sensor also exhibits a shallower depth of field at large apertures, providing greater depth of field control and creative options. The camcorder’s DIGIC DV 6 imaging engine further enhances the high sensitivity and low noise performance of the camcorder.
Wide DR Gamma (800%) Support
For natural and realistic-looking image capture that faithfully represents the scene at hand, Wide DR Gamma achieves a wide dynamic range of 800% to produce almost seamless tone gradations, resulting in smooth detail, accurate color and virtually no blown-out highlights.
15x Optical 4K UHD Zoom Lens with 5-Axis Optical Image Stabilization
The VIXIA HF G60 Camcorder incorporates a Canon 4K video lens that leverages proprietary Canon optical technologies derived from years of experience in developing Cinema, Broadcast and EF series lenses. Inspired by the same high level of optical precision used in Canon broadcast and photographic lenses, the Canon VIXIA HF G60 camcorder incorporates a Genuine Canon 15x optical zoom lens that maintains 4K UHD quality throughout the entire zoom range and offers a focal length range of 25.5 to 382.5mm (35mm film equivalent).
5-Axis Optical Image Stabilization
The VIXIA HF G60 camcorder also incorporates a 5-axis Optical Image Stabilization (IS) system. The camcorder features three modes of image stabilization: Standard, Dynamic and Powered. In Standard IS mode, the stabilizing angle is made constant independent of the zoom magnification. Dynamic IS mode extends the stabilizing range at the wide end of the focal length, allowing for image stabilization when shooting while walking. Powered IS mode helps facilitate stabilization in the low frequency range at the tele end and should be used exclusively for fixed-point shooting which does not involve panning.
For enhanced versatility and durability, the lens features a 9-blade iris, producing artistic and beautiful out-of-focus areas or “bokeh.” The 9 blades allow for attractive circular blurring in out-of-focus regions, while the use of an odd number of blades helps reduce flaring of specular highlights.
A compact and independent internal 3-density ND filter, using a turret (circular) mechanism, allows the user to select from three densities (ND 1/4, ND 1/16 and ND 1/64) or turn the feature off if needed. Density can be adjusted using the dedicated external buttons.
