Trust in a Canon 4K sensor

A 4K sensor and DIGIC DV6 image processor deliver crisp, sharp UHD images for 4K televisions while an 8-blade aperture achieves cinema-style out-of-focus highlights. Frame your shot with the 3.5-inch LCD or hold the camera to your eye and use the built in EVF.

Take creative control

Add impact to your films with dynamic wides and close ups captured with the powerful 20x optical zoom and advanced image stabilisation. Customise 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 focusing speed adjustable for either Fast or Smooth AF. Using the 3.5-inch LCD display, set the focus by simply touching the AF point you need. For even greater accuracy and convenience, especially with busy environments where you need to keep a subject in shot, Face Detection AF and Face Tracking is available while Manual Focus can be achieved via the control ring on the lens.

The LEGRIA HF G70 supports MP4 for playing through a compatible TV. It also records 4K UHD 150Mbps at 25P, plus Full HD 35Mbps or 17Mbps at 50P/25P.
