The VIXIA HF G60 Camcorder features a Canon 1.0-inch 4K UHD CMOS image sensor capable of 4K UHD video capture at 60p and slow motion recording up to 60fps in Full HD (30 fps in 4K UHD), providing a number of creative options for any recording situation.
High Sensitivity/Low Noise
The VIXIA HF G60 camcorder's 1.0-inch sensor allows for improved images with less noise in low-light situations. The larger sensor also exhibits a shallower depth of field at large apertures, providing greater depth of field control and creative options. The camcorder's DiG!C DV 6 imaging engine further enhances the high sensitivity and low noise performance of the camcorder.
Wide DR Gamma (800%) Support
For natural and realistic-looking image capture that faithfully represents the scene at hand, Wide DR Gamma achieves a wide dynamic range of 800% to produce almost seamless tone gradations, resulting in smooth detail, accurate color and virtually no blown-out highlights.
The VIXIA HF G60 Camcorder incorporates a Canon 4K video lens that leverages proprietary Canon optical technologies derived from years of experience in developing Cinema, Broadcast and EF series lenses.
Inspired by the same high level of optical precision used in Canon broadcast and photographic lenses, the Canon VIXIA HF G60 camcorder incorporates a Genuine Canon 15x optical zoom lens that maintains 4K UHD quality throughout the entire zoom range, and offers a focal length range of 25.5 to 382.5mm (35mm film equivalent).
5-Axis Optical Image Stabilization
The VIXIA HF G60 camcorder also incorporates a 5-axis Optical Image Stabilization (IS) system.
The camcorder features three modes of image stabilization: Standard, Dynamic and Powered. In Standard IS mode, the stabilizing angle is made constant independent of the zoom magnification. Dynamic IS mode extends the stabilizing range at the wide end of the focal length, allowing for image stabilization when shooting while walking. Powered IS mode helps facilitate stabilization in the low frequency range at the tele end, and should be used exclusively for fixed-point shooting which does not involve panning.
For enhanced versatility and durability, the lens features a 9-blade iris, producing artistic and beautiful out-of-focus areas or "bokeh." The 9 blades allow for attractive circular blurring in out-of-focus regions, while the use of an odd number of blades helps reduce flaring of specular highlights.
A compact and independent internal 3-density ND filter, using a turret (circular) mechanism, allows the user to select from three densities (ND 1/4, ND 1/16 and ND 1/64) or turn the feature off if needed. Density can be adjusted using the dedicated external buttons.
Optional Wide and Tele Accessories
The optional Wide Attachment WA-U58 and the Tele Converter TL-U58 accessories expand the creative capabilities of the VIXIA HF G60 camcorder.
The Wide Attachment WA-U58 offers a 0.8x wider angle of view that enables users to capture more of a scene, especially when indoors or in tight spaces, to lend better perspective to your video narrative. The Tele Converter TL-U58 provides extended 1.5x longer telephoto range for the VIXIA HF G60 camcorder's fixed lens, allowing distant subjects to be captured with brilliant clarity.
The VIXIA HF G60 Camcorder incorporates Canon's DIGIC DV 6 Image Processor, which is integral in providing high image quality, advanced performance and convenient operability. This advanced core technology component provides the image-processing power and speed that enables features such as 4K UHD video acquisition, image stabilization, slow and fast motion recording and precise Dual Pixel CMOS AF.
The VIXIA HF G60 Camcorder features Dual Pixel CMOS AF, Canon's exclusively developed high-speed, high-precision autofocus technology. Dual Pixel CMOS AF assists not only with standard shooting, but also with 4K UHD 30p, Full HD 60p and other high-frame rate applications that require crisp frame-by-frame accuracy.
Each pixel in the camcorder's CMOS sensor is configured with two photodiodes. Two independent image signals can then be detected at each photosite. By implementing phase-difference AF, smooth focusing is accomplished with much higher speed and accuracy than was possible with previous technologies.
Dual Pixel CMOS AF with Touch Focus
The VIXIA HF G60 camcorder's 3.0-inch touch panel LCD enables smooth, intuitive operation of Dual Pixel CMOS AF. Accurate AF technology can be employed when shooting a scene by tapping a finger on the desired area of the scene you want the lens to focus on. Dual Pixel CMOS AF offers continuous AF within a horizontal and vertical range of the screen of approximately 80%. It also provides highly accurate Face Detection AF, which assists during single-operator shooting. Users can also use the touch panel to move the autofocus target manually.
Face Detection AF
The Face Detection AF feature has two modes - Face Priority AF and Face Only AF - that offer users precise flexibility in how they choose their autofocus for a subject or scene.
Dual Pixel Focus Guide
Utilizing information from Dual Pixel CMOS AF, Dual Pixel Focus Guide helps achieve precise focus by displaying focus assist information on the screen. It employs a truly innovative user interface that enables the user to see if they are focused in front of or behind the subject through visual observation, and allows quick and accurate manual focus to be achieved. This helps simplify the focusing process when shooting in 4K UHD, which requires strict focus accuracy.
The VIXIA HF G60 Camcorder can record to dual SD card slots in 4K UHD and Full HD resolutions using the MP4 recording format.
Dual SD Card Slots
The VIXIA HF G60 Camcorder features dual SD card slots to allow for Simultaneous or Relay Recording in the MP4 format. Simultaneous recording allows you to record on both SD cards at the same time, so that you can use one as a backup.
Relay recording allows uninterrupted recording from one card to the other when the first memory card becomes full.
HDMI 2.0 Terminal
An HDMI 2.0 terminal supports 4K UHD 60p output, which can be connected to a standard external SSD/HDD recorder, enabling conversion to ProRes and DNx formats for efficient editing and storage.
The VIXIA HF G60 Camcorder supports slow and fast motion recording, and can record in a different frame rate from playback for slow and fast motion effects. Slow motion recording of up to 60 fps (x0.4) in Full HD (30 fps in 4K UHD) is supported, helping to create an emotionally moving and exciting style of video.
Our Full HD image quality is now even better thanks to Over Sampling HD Processing, which enables Full HD recording by effectively utilizing the outstanding capabilities of the 4K CMOS Sensor.
The VIXIA HF G60 Camcorder features a 3.0-inch Touch Panel LCD (approx. 460,000 dots) and a newly designed 0.24-inch Electronic Viewfinder (EVF – approx. 1.56 million dots). The Touch Panel LCD and EVF provide visual recognition of desired features along with a full array of menu options for controlling camcorder settings. The Touch Panel LCD works with Canon's exclusive AF technologies for easy monitoring and one-finger tap-focusing during shooting and the EVF offers 45° of tilt for more comfortable operation in a variety of positions.
Intuitive Menu Design
The VIXIA HF G60 camcorder features an intuitive menu design for fast and accurate access to desired features. Interactive direct touching and moving from one page to another are also possible by swiping the menu screen.
The VIXIA HF G60 camcorder features 5 assignable buttons, in addition to touch-assignable buttons on the upper part of the LCD panel. Users can set them to the features they need.
The VIXIA HF G60 Camcorder is compatible with Canon's optional RC-V100 Remote Controller, enabling image quality adjustments and other important operations to be set from a distance. The RC-V100 plugs into the VIXIA HF G60 Camcorder through the remote terminal on the rear panel.
Low power settings offer peace of mind for long recording times. The BP-820 or BP-828 battery allows for over three hours of continuous recording (when shooting 4K 30P using the LCD with BP-828).
- Continuous Recording (with BP-820/BP-828 and shooting 4K 30P using the LCD): approx. 150 min./approx. 230 min.
- Actual Recording (with BP-820/BP-828 and shooting 4K 30P using the LCD): approx. 85 min./approx. 125 min.
Weighing approx. 2.1 lbs. (main body only), the VIXIA HF G60 Camcorder features a compact and lightweight design, offering excellent mobility so you can capture amazing video wherever you need.
