High definition CMOS sensor 

If you're familiar with the struggle of recording clear and sharp footage at night, you'll love the Canon LEGRIA HF G26 Camcorder. Featuring a professional grade Full HD CMOS sensor, the HF G26 offers excellent sensitivity in low light while wide dynamic range and Highlight Priority mode deliver tone and detail when recording in bright light. Optical image stabilisation keeps your filming steady in all climates and settings, so you needn't worry about shaky hands sabotaging your best work.

Whether you're in Norway capturing the Northern Lights or at home filming an idea for a sketch, get the detail and results you want every time. 

Advanced recording options 

With its dual SD card slots, the Canon Legria HF G26 makes managing your files easy both during and after recording. Record stunning Full HD footage to both SD cards in MP4 and AVCHD formats simultaneously instead of committing to one. If you can't wait to share your work on social media, a 3 Mbps mode produces smaller file sizes when filming, letting you use video files immediately after recording. 

Compact design and handy interface 

Shoot cinematic footage without the associated shoulder pain. The HF G26 packs a ton of great features into a compact and lightweight body, giving you the ability to record jaw-droppingly professional footage. The tiltable electronic viewfinder is ideal for filming in sunlight, while indoor filming is made easier with an HDMI port that lets you instantly view footage on your TV. With its easy operation and range of modes, you can let your creativity flow while staying fully in control. 

Get the most out of your camcorder 

We recommend using a UHS Speed Class 1 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.
