    - High definition CMOS PRO sensor helps you to record in challenging conditions

    - Optical Intelligent Image Stabilisation corrects camera shake

    - Smart shooting with wireless remote and WiFi connectivity

    A great choice for any video enthusiast, the Canon LEGRIA HF G40 Camcorder can capture stunning videos with full manual controls, an impressive CMOS sensor and a versatile 20 x wide-angle lens.

    High definition CMOS PRO sensor

    At the heart of the G40 is a professional grade HD CMOS PRO sensor that allows you to explore the way you record clips.

    The increased sensitivity means that you can record in more challenging conditions and still get the results you want, with an impressively low 1 lux rating for sharp and detailed video, even in lower light.

    The G40 also lets you compose your recording depending on the subjects and surroundings with full manual controls to really express yourself. You can manually select the camera settings using the 88 mm OLED touchscreen depending on how you want your clips to come out for more creative control. Or if you prefer, you can always select the automatic setting to let the G40 measure the conditions and choose the most appropriate for an easier way to shoot.

    Optical Intelligent Image Stabilisation

    Get the best results with the Optical Intelligent Image Stabilisation in the G40 that can correct and adjust the inevitable camera shake that can occur with hand held recording.

    Adjusting for vertical, horizontal, lateral and panning movements, the G40's stabilisation produces clear and undistorted, blur free clips that let you record what you want without any distracting camera shaking or wobbling.

    On top of this, the Intelligent IS can even differentiate between different shooting conditions, selecting the right level of image stabilisation depending on the situation for crisp clear filming wherever you go.

    Smart shooting

    Use the G40 more creatively and shoot remotely with the WL-D89 Wireless Remote that lets you start and stop recording, even from a distance.

    The G40 also features WiFi connectivity so you can pair compatible devices and use them to adjust settings, review footage and quick start recording which is ideal if the camcorder is already set up or you want to film from a distance.

    Get the most out of your camcorder

    We recommend using a UHS Speed Class 3 memory card as it offers the speed you need for capturing Full HD footage. Keep your new gear protected with a travel-friendly case or bag which will also hold your daily essentials.
