Capture every detail with ease like a pro

With a new 4K sensor, the LEGRIA HF G50 captures outstanding levels of detail in 4K or Full HD with 4K oversampling – making this camcorder ideal for those looking to take their first steps into the world of 4K video, reliving their captured action in fantastic resolution. Allowing the user to push their creative ability, the LEGRIA HF G50 with its 20x wide-angle zoom lensZOOM LENSAllows a camera to, unlike a fixed-focal length or prime lens, change smoothly from a long shot to a close-up or vice versa by varying the focal length. A true zoom lens, also called a parfocal lens, is one that maintains focus when its focal length changes. Due to more moving parts, zoom lenses often produce images of slightly lesser quality than their prime lens counterparts. However due to the inherent flexibility of being able to vary the focal length, they are extremely popular for photography where composition needs to be adapted quickly - such as at weddings, for example. and f/1.8-2.8 maximum apertureAPERTUREAperture, shutter speed and ISO form what is known as the exposure triangle in photography. Aperture refers to an opening inside the lens, similar to the iris of your eye, that changes in diameter to control the amount of light that enters a camera. Aperture is expressed in f-stops: the lower the number, the larger the aperture, e.g. f/1.4 is larger than f/8. A larger (or wider) aperture allows more light to pass through the lens to the sensor (film) as a picture is taken, particularly useful in low-light conditions. A larger aperture also produces a shallower depth-of-field, and thus more background blur., offers greater control over depth of field and excellent low-light capability, resulting in clearer and more vibrant content.

Pushing creative boundaries with state-of-the-art features

Equipping users with a range of features that enhance their artistic shooting abilities, the G50 camcorder features circular apertures for smooth bokehBOKEHPronounced: /ˈboʊkɛ/, /ˈboʊkeɪ/ [boh-kay] or /ˈboʊkə/ [boh-kə] Originating from the Japanese word Boke (ボケ), meaning 'blur' or 'haze', it refers to the aesthetic quality of the blur produced in the out-of-focus parts of an image produced by a lens. It has also been defined as the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light. Bokeh depends on various aspects of lens design. Aperture design has the largest effect on Bokeh, and generally a lens with a more rounded aperture produces a more pleasing, natural Bokeh.. In addition to this, the LEGRIA HF G50 has a powerful, wide-angle 20x optical zoom lens enabling users to get close to the action with superior image quality. With customisable focus speeds, the 50 camcorder can achieve almost instant smooth focusing enabling them to prioritise the look of a movie or the urgency of capturing ‘the shot’ for a documentary. Having the option to speed up or slow playback speed down, both camcorders allow the enthusiast users to get creative with motion and increase the dramatic effect of their video content. What’s more, the LEGRIA HF G50 supports Canon’s advanced Image Stabiliser (IS) technology. Shake-free, professional-looking content is maintained optically with high-quality mechanical compensation for up-down/left-right camera movement, plus electronically with intelligent correction of roll and tilt.

 

Make life easy and shoot it your way

The customisable settings empower video enthusiasts to mould the LEGRIA HF G50 to their own shooting preferences; perfect for those committed to shooting in a specific style, whether it’s family moments or a personal passion project. With highly responsive and state-of-the-art controls, the G50 handheld camcorder is compact and simple-to-use, ideal for capturing on the go. Both fitted with a professional grade zoom rocker, a dial to reduce menu diving, lens ring with fingertip light sensitivity and the ability to assign functions and commands to five buttons, the LEGRIA HF G50 make for an easy shooting experience. In addition to this, both the G50 and G60 support adjustable exposureEXPOSUREExposure is controlled by three elements: Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO. Achieving the correct exposure is similar to collecting rain in a bucket, up to an optimum level. The rate of rainfall is out of your control (light), yet you can control these three factors: the bucket’s width (lens aperture), the duration you leave it in the rain (shutter speed), and how effective your bucket is in collecting rain (ISO). These three elements work together to control the amount of light per unit area, preventing underexposure (too dark) or overexposure (too bright), giving you a natural looking image. with built-in ND filters for wider apertures or slower shutter speedSHUTTER SPEEDAperture, shutter speed and ISO form what is known as the exposure triangle in photography. Shutter speed is the length of time that a single frame is exposed for, more specifically how fast the shutter opens and closes to permit light entering the lens, to reach the sensor. A slow shutter speed means a longer exposure time useful for motion blur like the silky look of flowing water, whereas a fast shutter speed means a shorter exposure time useful for freezing the appearance of motion in images like a hummingbird in flight. It is measured in seconds starting at 1 second and halving our doubling in time. For example: 1/2s, 1/4s and 1/8s are all fractions of a second with 1/2s being the longest exposure time, 1/4s half of that and 1/8s another half etc.s.

With both models featuring a highly responsive 3-inch (460,000 dots) capacitive touch screen and a 0.24-inch tilting high-resolution electronic viewfinder, users can be confident the images are framed perfectly.

The LEGRIA HF G50's responsive touchscreen provides the ability to adjust tracking, focus and exposure, and their electronic viewfinder – excellent for shooting in tight and bright conditions to achieve a high-quality outcome. As well as this, the G50 camcorder accommodates for dual recording with two SD card slots.
