Reasons For

Canon Legria HF G40 Canon XA30
2 Reasons For
PictBridge
The Canon Legria HF G40 supports PictBridge, but the Canon XA30 does not.

This denotes whether the camcorder supports Pictbridge, which allows the device to connect directly to compatible printer to print off photos, without having to connect through a computer first.

Pictbridge makes it far easier to print off the photos you've taken on your camcorder, since you don't need to worry about downloading them first.

£434 Cheaper
The Canon Legria HF G40 is £433.80 cheaper than the Canon XA30.
6 Reasons For
Hugely Higher Maximum Aperture Number
Canon XA30 is 8 maximum aperture value, but the Canon Legria HF G40 is only a 2.8 maximum aperture value camcorder (5.2 lower).

In photography, the aperture number refers to the size of the hole in the front of the lens, through which light is let through. The larger the aperture, the more light can pass through into the camcorder's sensor. Photographers can modify this aperture to control the 'depth of field' for their shot - this is how much of the shot is held in focus, and how much is blurred. Aperture numbers are measured in f/stops: rather confusingly a larger aperture number translates to a smaller hole, therefore a smaller amount of light will be let through.

A larger aperture number means that the camcorder's lens will be able to close to a very small hole, letting in very little light. This can be used for very tight depths of field shots, allowing on a single part of the photo to be in full focus, leading to some very nice artistic shots.

Read more Read less | Edit
42% Faster Maximum Frame Rate
The Canon XA30 is a 60fps camcorder. That's 25fps faster than the Canon Legria HF G40 (35fps).

This denotes how many frames per second (fps) are captured and displayed when recording video.

A higher fps means that the camcorder is recording far more frames for every second of footage, leading to a far smoother and more fluid video - the action will be less jerky and look of a higher quality.

Read more Read less | Edit
29% Higher Effective Megapixels (image)
The Canon XA30 is a 2.91MP camcorder. That's 0.84MP higher than the Canon Legria HF G40 (2.07MP).

The resolution of the images a camcorder produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

Read more Read less | Edit
9x Smaller Closest Focusing Distance
The Canon XA30 is a 0.01m closest focusing distance camcorder. That's 0.09m smaller than the Canon Legria HF G40 (0.1m).

This indicates the closest distance that the camcorder can be from the subject to achieve a perfect focus. Any closer than this and the subject will be blurry.

A smaller focusing distance means that you can get closer to subjects while filming and still keep in full focus.

Read more Read less | Edit
23% Larger Display Diagonal
The Canon XA30 has a display diagonal of 3.5", however the Canon Legria HF G40 is only a 2.7" screen size camcorder (0.8" smaller).

Display diagonal of the camcorder's build in display.

A larger display diagonal makes it easier to record and review video and images.

Read more Read less | Edit
18% Lighter
The Canon XA30 is a 765g camcorder. That's 135g lighter than the Canon Legria HF G40 (900g).

This denotes the weight of the camcorder, including battery.

A lighter camcorder is easier to handle when recording and to carry when travelling.
