Express your creative passion – Canon’s new LEGRIA HF G25
LEGRIA HF G25
AUCKLAND, 8 January, 2013 – Canon New Zealand today enhances its renowned LEGRIA
consumer camcorder range with a new flagship model for creative video enthusiasts – the LEGRIA
HF G25. Building on the outstanding performance offered by its predecessor, the highly-popular
LEGRIA HF G10, the LEGRIA HF G25 features a first-class specification optimised to deliver leading
video quality.
“The LEGRIA HF G25 offers a precision Canon-engineered wide-angle lens, extensive manual
controls and exceptional audio performance in a compact, user-friendly body. It is an ideal, affordable
choice for aspiring videographers looking to explore their creative potential,” says Rochelle Mora,
Brand Manager – Imaging, Canon New Zealand.
Professional image quality
Thanks to its premium and highly powerful HD Camera System, the LEGRIA HF G25 delivers
stunning, professional-standard results. At its heart is an enhanced Canon HD CMOS PRO image
sensor, which now offers a 20% improvement in light sensitivity over its predecessor. Combining with
the lens’ maximum f/1.8 aperture, the sensor delivers outstanding low-light performance and wide
dynamic range, capturing atmosphere and detail in shadows, while also preventing highlight blow-out
in high-contrast conditions.
The camera’s optical 30.4mm Wide-Angle HD video lens helps achieve superior quality results,
enabling videographers to capture more of the scene. When shooting, or viewing images in bright
conditions, the lens’ anti-reflective structure prevents light reflections or glare.
A 10x optical zoom is enhanced by Canon’s acclaimed Optical Image Stabilizer (IS) technology,
counteracting camera shake throughout the zoom range. Canon’s Intelligent IS technology is also
included to ensure each shot is crisp, clear and blur-free. By automatically selecting one of four
different modes, including the Dynamic and Powered modes, Intelligent IS ensures that whether
enthusiasts are shooting whilst walking, experimenting with macro, or zooming into far off action, each
recording is captured in vivid detail and with minimal blur.
Enhanced audio performance
To complement exceptional visual performance, the LEGRIA HF G25 features an internal
microphone, audio equaliser and Canon’s advanced Audio Scene Select technology. Working
together with the high quality internal microphone, Audio Scene Select features five different modes
with sound settings optimised for the scene being shot, including Noise Reduction, Music and
Speech. Users can simply select the most suitable mode for their scene and let the camera do the
work, freeing them to focus exclusively on composition.
The high-quality internal microphone reduces mid and low-frequency background noise, picking out
even softer sounds with crystal-clear audio. An audio equaliser also optimises the sound according to
the type of soundtrack, especially useful when shooting a scene with live music or individual voices.
Zoom Mic mode adjusts microphone directionality for subjects in front of the camcorder, ensuring
improved sound quality when zooming into distant subjects.
In addition to the internal mic, compatibility with the WM-V1 wireless microphone provides additional
flexibility – enabling the voices of subjects up to 50m from the camcorder to be captured without any
loss of quality. The wireless mic can be used as a transceiver, allowing camcorder operators to
position their subject conveniently before filming.
Expert shooting on the move
The LEGRIA HF G25’s advanced feature set is packed into a compact body that helps users capture
the shot they want, when they want. Its new design is based around the heart of the device – the
camera lens. A new lens hood with lens barrier replaces the more traditional lens cap and offers
enhanced protection and quicker functionality on the move. Operated by a single switch, the new lens
hood can easily be opened and closed between recordings, reducing the need to carry extra
accessories.
Unleash your creativity
Eight pre-loaded Cinema-Look Filters help users to add drama, convey feeling or create a stylised
effect in-camera. For example, Old Movie gives footage an aged effect consistent with older cinema
reels, whilst Vivid accentuates primary colours for a cheerful, bright impact. Once the filter has been
selected, it can be further refined on-screen according to key, colour depth, contrast and soft focus,
allowing the user to perform sophisticated grading effects using only the camera.
Once shot, it’s easy to add simple titles to movies or create green screen effects, thanks to Touch
Decoration. Using the supplied stylus text can be added and still images mixed with video clips on the
camera’s large LCD screen.
A Story Creator is included, guiding users in planning, capturing and sharing compelling stories with
video without any external post-production required.
Shooting control
A lens ring provides close control over focus during shooting, while a customisable control dial can be
assigned to manually adjust critical functions including aperture, shutter speed and gain. Two
assignable buttons beside the 8.8cm (3.5”) LCD display also provide direct access to a selection of
additional functions, including Face-Only AF, Backlight Correction and Priority WB modes. A 0.61cm
(0.24”) Colour Viewfinder provides 100% coverage, offering added convenience for those who
predominantly shoot outdoors, or in low-light indoor environments.
With both Double Slot and Relay Recording support, users are able to record movies to two memory
cards1 at the same time, or seamlessly switch recording from 32GB of internal storage to one card,
and then to the next. Video clips can also be copied from one card to another post-shoot for added
flexibility.
Share your video
Sharing the footage shot on the LEGRIA HF G25 has never been easier. In-camcorder downconversion is supported, preparing the movies for upload to online video sharing sites, either via a PC
with Canon’s Easy Web Upload software or direct from the camera using supported Eye-Fi wireless
cards2.
