Canon Middle East this week announced an addition to its LEGRIA consumer camcorder range with new flagship model the LEGRIA HF G25.

Building on the technology of its predecessor, the LEGRIA HF G10, the G25 features a precision Canon-engineered wide-angle lens, extensive manual controls and enhanced audio performance in a compact body.

At the heart of the G25 is an enhanced Canon HD CMOS PRO image sensor, which Canon claims now offers a 20% improvement in light sensitivity over its predecessor. Combined with the lens' maximum f/1.8 aperture, the sensor delivers optimum low-light performance and wide dynamic range, capturing atmosphere and detail in shadows, while also preventing highlight blow-out in high-contrast conditions.

The camera's Optical 30.4mm Wide-Angle HD video lens is designed to capture more of the scene. When shooting, or viewing images in bright conditions, the lens' anti-reflective structure is said to prevent light reflections or glare.

A 10x optical zoom is supplemented by Canon's Optical Image Stabilizer technology, which is aimed at counteracting camera shake throughout the zoom range. Canon's Intelligent IS technology is also included to help ensure each shot is crisp, clear and blur-free.

"By automatically selecting one of four different modes, including the Dynamic and Powered modes, Intelligent IS ensures that, whether enthusiasts are shooting whilst walking, experimenting with macro, or zooming into far off action, each recording is captured in vivid detail and with minimal blur," Canon said.

The LEGRIA HF G25 features an internal microphone, audio equaliser and Canon's Audio Scene Select technology. Working together with the internal microphone, Audio Scene Select features five different modes with sound settings optimised for the scene being shot, including Noise Reduction, Music and Speech.

The internal microphone is designed to reduce mid- and low-frequency background noise, picking out even softer sounds with crystal-clear audio. An audio equaliser also optimises the sound according to the type of soundtrack, allowing capture of live music or individual voices. Zoom Mic mode also adjusts microphone directionality for subjects in front of the camcorder, helping to improve sound quality when zooming into more distant subjects.
