    HD CMOS Pro Sensor

    The LEGRIA HF G40 features a newly developed Canon HD CMOS Pro Sensor featured a signal-to-noise improved by 3db and approximately 40% reduction in noise compared to the previous model (HFG30). This delivers exceptional high-sensitivity imaging performance It breaks new ground with its 8-Blade Circular Aperture, which reduces the "starburst" effect found in camcorders with non-circular apertures. The result is that points of light in out-of-focus areas, usually the background of your shot, are beautifully circularly blurred, creating a more authentic and artistic feel. The professional touch of a manual focus ring allows accurate and precise control. For extra flexibility, the manual focus ring can be easily set to control zoom instead.

    5-Axis Image Stabilization

    Canon's sophisticated SuperRange Optical Image Stabilizer corrects camera shake instantly, so even handheld video taken at long focal lengths is sharp and steady. The power of Canon's new DIGIC DV 4 Image Processor has made possible a significantly improved new Dynamic Image Stabilization mode. In addition to providing continuous adjustment throughout the entire zoom range to correct a broad range of motion, with extra compensation applied at wide-angle focal lengths, the system now stabilizes rotational camera shake. Controlling rotational camera shake – horizontal, vertical and roll axis – helps ensure smooth, distortion-free video, even when you're walking while shooting.
