Newly designed Genuine Canon 20x HD Video Lens (35mm equivalent: 26.8mm 576mm) with 8-Blade Circular Aperture and Manual Focus Ring delivers exceptional image quality with smooth backgrounds and precise control.
The VIXIA HF G30 features a Genuine Canon 20x HD Video Lens offering a 35mm equivalent of 26.8mm576mm with a minimum object distance of just 23.6 inches (60cm). As with all Canon high definition video lenses, aspherical lens technology is used to achieve low chromatic aberration with high resolution while maintaining compact dimensions. Super spectra coating technology lowers flare and ghosting. The VIXIA HF G30 breaks new ground with its 8-Blade Circular Aperture, which reduces the "starburst" effect found in camcorders with non-circular apertures. The result is that points of light in out-of-focus areas, usually the background of your shot, are beautifully circularly blurred, creating a more authentic and artistic feel. The professional touch of a manual focus ring allows accurate and precise control. For extra flexibility, the manual focus ring can be easily set to control zoom instead.
