Shooting Outside? Get it!

East Coast Brian, Amazon

  • Summary: The HF G30 is a really nice camera, especially for the price. I am still getting used to it, so these are a few early comments. The lens is amazing. 20X and sharp and fast all the way.

I think video quality is good and the camera does have some heft to it ...

Hawaii guy!, Amazon

  • Summary: Putting the camera through some test right now. I think video quality is good and the camera does have some heft to it but to me, exudes quality. I am a little disappointed that the camera does not come with an operating manual.

Great features, Canon quality, watch what cards you use

Gary Kitchen, Amazon
25 December 2014
  • Summary: An upgrade from a Canon Vixia HF11. Features I wanted were LANC connectivity for a tripod remote controller, and better handheld zoom control. This does well on both items. The viewfinder is a bit in the way, don't use it.

Great Camera For Football

Brad, B&H Photo
20 October 2014
  • Excerpt: Great Picture Quality. I love the Dual record so that I have a backup on the fly. My only CON is that the Power and composite out for my monitor is in the way for my hand on the zoom. Zoom is pretty good although there is some fuzz on the edges from time to time.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Good Image Stabilization, Great Picture Quality

Performs as expected.

DesignerBryce, B&H Photo
2 September 2014
  • Excerpt: The camera performs as I would expect. It is entirely satisfactory. I do wish that a company would put some thought into interface. As with every camera I have purchased recently, DLSRs and Video Cameras alike The interface is more or less unintuitive and just generally kinda awful.
  • Pros: Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Zoom range/performance
  • Cons: Complicated To Operate

Very good for money

Adorama
18 July 2014
  • Excerpt: This cam is very good for the money. The lens is very sharp, even compared with my 5d3 and L-lens. The 20x zoom is very long and useful and the rocker switch is smooth. Low light performance is outstanding, most likely because they didn't cram too many pixels.
  • Pros: Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound, Great Zoom, Zoom range/performance
  • Cons: Menu, Skin Tones, White balance

improved design over earlier models

zerobyte, B&H Photo
18 July 2014
  • Excerpt: view finder is clearer, larger and much improved for outdoor work - zoom lever design is improved - joystick for menus is clumsy, but very useful in the field - 20x zoom is nice - lacks hdmi output for uncompressed recordings - has no macro focus features - bit pricey -
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Great Picture Quality, Great Zoom, Zoom range/performance
  • Cons: No Macro Focus

Likes G30 Camcorder

guyhiker, B&H Photo
11 June 2014
  • Excerpt: I like the G30 very much and would recommend it. It is a bit heavy, but all the features are exactly what I want and need. I wish the photo section was easier. The photo button on screen is wierd, where Canon S21 had a nice button on top. The manual exposure button is nice and easy.
  • Pros: Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Features, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, User Choices On Features, Zoom range/performance
  • Cons: A bit heavy, Complicated To Operate
