New Canon HF G30, XA20 and XA25 camcorders

Postby Stephan » 03 Apr 2013 23:08

Strange timing... The 2 professional products come right on time for NAB in Las Vegas next week, but what... a new consumer cam 3 months after a boring CES? How sweet! Good news, Canon!

Press releases (details are still scarce):
- Consumer: The New Canon VIXIA HF G30 Camcorder Opens Up New Possibilities For Video Enthusiasts And Advanced Amateurs
- Pro: Canon U.S.A. Introduces Two Ultra-Compact Professional Camcorders [Canon XA25 and XA20]

Soon coming at B&H:

aha! yes about time Canon updated that form-factor. Looks like an interesting machine for sure. Tough competition in this sector of the market, with the Sony offerings.

Why so bad performance in low light of G30?

Test image 12 lux is very bad.

Don't waste your time with the picture tests on slashcam.com, they tend to compare apples with carrots. Color balance is just wrong in every shot with every camcorder model, there isn't any shot that they're able to balance properly, so there's no point in these comparisons. Comparing bad shots with bad shots isn't helpful.
