Cutting-edge features for precise, high-quality footage
With a range of cutting-edge features, the LEGRIA HF G26 assures precise and high-quality shooting in the most challenging of conditions. The Intelligent Image Stabiliser (IS) compensates for 5 axes of camera movement, which is crucial for steady filming whilst on the move and capturing shake-free smooth footage even at extreme zoom, thanks to Powered IS. To support Full HD clarity, the LEGRIA HF G26 features Instant Autofocus for the rapid and precise identification of the subject position and distance. Capturing pin sharp Full HD video has never been easier.
Using the three-position switch, users can easily alternate between Manual, Auto and Cinema modes without changing individual settings. With up to 20x optical zoom, the LEGRIA HF G26 enables the creative capture of video from wide shots to extreme close ups, capturing even distant subjects in brilliant Full-HD quality. Using a Wide Dynamic Range of 600 per cent and Highlight Priority looks, the LEGRIA HF G26 records Full HD 50p at 35Mbps delivering high-quality footage, while evenly distributing tones and managing areas of brightness. This produces beautiful video footage straight from the camcorder.
The combination of a 2.91MP 1/2.84-Type HD CMOS Pro sensor and DIGIC DV4 processor delivers incredible light sensitivity, contrast and wide dynamic range without compromising Full 1080p HD. This allows filmmakers to capture content in conditions with light as low as 0.1 lux, ideal for video enthusiasts capturing nighttime documentaries. Similarly, the LEGRIA HF G26 offsets overexposure in bright conditions with its built-in ND Filter reducing the amount of light that reaches the sensor.
Easy operation and compact designThe customisable settings empower video enthusiasts to mould the LEGRIA HF G26 to their own shooting preferences; perfect for those committed to shooting in a specific style. With highly responsive and state-of-the-art controls, the LEGRIA HF G26 is a compact, simple-to-use, hand-held device that is perfect for capturing on the go. Fitted with a professional grade zoom rocker, lens ring with fingertip light sensitivity and custom dial and buttons, the LEGRIA HF G26 provides content creators with maximum artistic control when shooting.
A highly responsive 3.0-inch capacitive touch screen ensures the image can be framed perfectly, with the ability to adjust tracking, focus and exposure for a high-quality outcome. For full visibility when capturing footage, especially in bright conditions, aspiring film makers can adjust the 1.56 million dot electronic tilting viewfinder up to 45° for low-angle shooting and to reduce glare. This is particularly useful for video enthusiasts capturing content in variable lighting conditions, such as whilst travelling or on outdoor shooting locations. This simple operation, and compact design, make the LEGRIA HF G26 suited for moments when mobility and speed are essential.
Simple workflow, advanced recording
Whether simply distributing the stunning 1080p/50 footage straight from the video camera or editing later, the LEGRIA HF G26 unlocks choice and workflow flexibility. Simultaneous AVCHD and MP4 recording gives you the freedom to capture Full HD resolution up to 35Mbps MP4/28Mbps AVCHD and as low as 3Mbps MP4/5Mbps AVCHD. With several advanced recording options, such as slow and fast capture with a maximum speed of 1200x, the LEGRIA HF G26 provides reassurance that you will never miss a moment.
A dependable companion for any filming, the LEGRIA HF G26 delivers peace of mind with dual SD card slots for continuous shooting and thorough back up.
