The tiny, black Canon LEGRIA HF G70 4K Camcorder captures high-resolution 4K footage. The G70 has the same size factor and many of the same amazing specs as the G50, including a 1/2.3" sensor "UHD 4K CMOS sensor, DIGIC DV 6 image processing, 8-blade circular aperture, 5-axis image stabilisation, 20x optical zoom in 4K, and recording up to UHD 4K30 resolution. This slimmer edition has a larger 3.5mm LCD capacitive touchscreen display and a higher resolution tiltable 0.36" display "OLED EVF, only MP4 recording, and fast USB Type-C video-only output with UVC support for live streaming to a PC.

With the G70, you can record simultaneously up to UHD 4K30 3840 x 2160 video to separately available SD cards using the built-in dual SD card slots. Recording features also include slow-motion down to 0.5x, fast-motion up to 1200x, and interval recording in both HD and 4K. It also embeds time, date, timecode, and other metadata to your video files. The lens features advanced autofocus, a wide 29.3 angle of view, and a 20x optical zoom, which allows zooming to 627mm in 4K. The five-axis advanced image stabilization reduces shake and jitter, especially at longer focal lengths.

There are five assignable buttons around the camera, as well as a joystick, a lens ring, and a custom dial for full control of your settings. The EVF tilts for convenience and comfort, and the adjustable LCD features a touchscreen that provides easy access to your settings.

Also included is an AC adapter with an adapter cable, a BP-820 battery pack, a lens cap, and a lens hood with a lens barrier.

Canon 4K Sensor

A 4K sensor and DIGIC DV6 image processor deliver crisp, sharp UHD images, and an 8-blade iris achieves cinema-style out-of-focus highlights. Frame your shot with the ultra-bright 3.5" LCD or use the built-in OLED electronic viewfinder (EVF).

On-Screen Display (OSD) "Time Stamp" Recording

OSD recording embeds date, time, timecode, and other data into your original camera files, effectively "time stamping" the information into each frame of video, a requirement for legal and law enforcement videographers.

UVC Livestreaming

Stream HD video directly from the camera via UVC1 to a Windows or macOS computer. Audio output through USB is not supported.

Take Creative Control

Add impact to your films with dynamic wide and close-up shots captured with the powerful 20x optical zoom and advanced image stabilization. Customize the camera with five assignable buttons and use the built-in ND filters to adjust exposure for wider apertures or slower shutter speeds.

Fast, Precise Focusing with Face Detection

The LEGRIA HF G70 features an advanced Hybrid AF system with a focusing speed adjustable for either Fast or Smooth AF. Using the ultra-bright 3.5" LCD, set the focus by simply touching the AF point you need.
