Canon has launched three new VIXIA consumer camcorders at CES 2019, the most notable being the VIXIA HF G50 with 4K/30p recording and 20x optical zoom. This is the first G-Series camcorder to offer UHD recording, making it ideal for advanced amateurs and projects requiring a higher level of quality, according to Canon.

The VIXIA HF G50 features a Canon 29.3 - 601mm 20x optical zoom lens, 8-blade aperture for still image bokeh, 4K 1/2.3-inch sensor, DIGIC DV 6 image processor, Dual-Pixel CMOS AF five-axis OIS, dual-card SD slots, a 3-inch LCD touchscreen, and a tilting EVF.

In addition to Full HD and UHD, the camcorder supports slow and fast recording with a range of 0.4x to 1200x. The model retains the same general design as the previous HF G40 camcorder model. Canon will offer the VIXIA HF G50 4K camcorder in April for $1,099.99 USD.

Joining the HF G50 are the new VIXIA HF W11 and HF W10 rugged camcorders targeted at adventurers and general consumers. Both models feature shockproof, dustproof, and waterproof (to 5m / 16.4ft) construction; they can be used in temperatures down to -10C / 14F. Likewise, both the HF W10 and HF W11 offer 40x optical zoom, 60x digital zoom, Full HD 1920 x 1080 AVCHD recording, 5-hour battery life, and a 3-inch touchscreen.

The two models differ in internal storage capacity: the W11 has 32GB, whereas the W10 only has 8GB. Users can expand the capacities via a removable SD card. As well, the W11 model features an automatic LED light. Both models will be released in April for $399.99 USD (HF W10) and $449.99 USD (HF W11).
