Canon has unveiled the Legria GX10 video camera, offering 4K shooting capabilities along with a range of other features for creating professional videos.
Canon provided the following information:
Future proof picture quality
The Legria GX10 captures image quality that will stand the test of time. Equipped with 4K 50p shooting capabilities, it provides four times the resolution of 1080p Full HD, reproducing even the smallest detail and making those special moments come to life on screen. Offering a versatile recording experience, the Legria GX10 supports shooting in MP4 at either 35Mbps for Full HD, or in 150Mbps for 4K 50p – perfect for fast-paced action. Capturing up to 100fps, this new in class camcorder enables you to produce a variety of content from time-lapse to 0.25x slow motion effects.
Professional quality made easy
The Legria GX10 facilitates the making of professional quality videos in a simple and easy way. It’s the first camcorder with a 1.0-type sensor that integrates Canon’s Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology, providing a shallow depth of field and responsive, accurate and customisable focus. Three optical ND filters deliver two, four or eight stops of exposure control for superb image quality in the darkest and brightest conditions, whilst the newly developed wide angle 4K lens with 15x zoom further ensures you get the quality that 4K promises.
Thanks to the Wide Dynamic Range (DR) mode, the DR is extended to 800% to capture greater detail in highlights and shadows for clear, vibrant images that are ready to share without editing. The large, instinctive, vari-angle touchscreen gives you fast and easy access to essential functions needed in dynamic shooting scenarios such as parties, weddings or action-packed holidays. At the same time, the camera’s 5-Axis Image Stabilisation (IS) is optimised to ensure you get steady footage throughout the zoom range.
Convenient and reliable
A compact, lightweight and robust camcorder, jam-packed with professional functions, the Legria GX10 is a reliable video recorder for any occasion. The ergonomic design mimics that of professional camcorders featuring a tilt-adjustable viewfinder, professional style zoom rocker and custom function buttons. The full manual setting enables you to vary your level of control based on your needs and experience, whilst the automatic mode offers complete ease of operation. With dual SD card slots for backup and continuous recording, you won’t miss a moment. This, alongside the long battery life, makes the Legria GX10 the perfect companion for capturing incredible adventures, from safari to skiing.
With dual band Wi-Fi, you can shoot remotely and transfer files on the go to capture and share those important moments. The camera also includes a wireless remote control, which allows you to direct the camera from a distance.
Ready to progress with you
Whilst the powerful built-in stereo microphone provides impressive sound quality, the additional 3.5mm microphone input, Mini Advanced shoe and 3.5mm headphone output allow you to tailor the Legria GX10 to all your audio needs. This simple accessory connection empowers content creators to turn their passions and hobbies into a career.
Password managers don’t protect you from hackers
Using a password manager to protect yourself online? Research reveals serious weaknesses…
Top password manager products have fundamental flaws that expose the data they are designed to protect, rendering them no more secure than saving passwords in a text file, according to a new study by researchers at Independent Security Evaluators (ISE).
“100 percent of the products that ISE analyzed failed to provide the security to safeguard a user’s passwords as advertised,” says ISE CEO Stephen Bono. “Although password managers provide some utility for storing login/passwords and limit password reuse, these applications are a vulnerable target for the mass collection of this data through malicious hacking campaigns.”
In the new report titled “Under the Hood of Secrets Management,” ISE researchers revealed serious weaknesses with top password managers: 1Password, Dashlane, KeePass and LastPass. ISE examined the underlying functionality of these products on Windows 10 to understand how users’ secrets are stored even when the password manager is locked. More than 60 million individuals 93,000 businesses worldwide rely on password managers. Click here for a copy of the report.
Password managers are marketed as a solution to eliminate the security risks of storing passwords or secrets for applications and browsers in plain text documents. Having previously examined these and other password managers, ISE researchers expected an improved level of security standards preventing malicious credential extraction. Instead ISE found just the opposite.

MWC: Next generation of inflight connectivity to be unveiled
Next week at Mobile World Congress, the Seamless Air Alliance will reveal progress on its mission towards enabling the next generation of inflight connectivity. This follows a significant start for the Alliance, which has seen membership increase five-fold since the first meeting in June of last year. The Alliance has a new research laboratory setup and continues progress through its three working groups, writing specifications for the technology, requirements, and operations.
These developments represent a huge leap towards the goal of making connectivity as easy and enjoyable in the skies as it is on the ground. Appearing as part of the Airbus stand (Hall 6, stand 6G34), the Seamless Air Alliance will reveal specification topics that have been completed and published to its membership.
“The passenger experience with inflight connectivity remains one of the great technology challenges. From Day One we have been determined to deliver on our mission to bring industries and technologies together to make the inflight internet experience simple to access and a delight to use,” said the Alliance’s Chief Executive Officer, Jack Mandala.
“I have been tremendously encouraged by the enthusiastic and committed response we have seen and the widening areas of expertise we can call upon as more and more companies and organisations continue to join us,” he added.
Announced during MWC 2018, the Seamless Air Alliance has since grown to twenty-three membercompanies with more than one-hundred key personnel from across the membership participating in its three working groups, with numbers continuing to increase.
The Seamless Air Alliance was created by founding members Airbus, Airtel, Delta Air Lines, OneWeb and Sprint, and quickly joined by Air France KLM, Aeromexico, and GOL Linhas Aereas Inteligentes and global technology leaders including Astronics, Collins Aerospace, Comtech, Cyient, iDirect, Inmarsat, Intelsat, Latecoere, Nokia, and Panasonic.
Today, the Alliance is pleased to announce five additional new members: Adaptive Channel, Etihad Airways, GlobalReach Technology, Safran, and SITAONAIR.
“We are extremely pleased to have these companies join and be a part of the companies driving the next generation of connectivity.” said Mr Mandala.
The Seamless Air Alliance will enable travelers boarding any flight, on any airline, anywhere in the world, to use their own devices to automatically connect to the Internet with no complicated login process nor paywall to scramble over.
The Alliance is also announcing the release of a new research study on the economic benefit of standardization on the inflight connectivity market at Mobile World Congress. This report is available for download at https://www.seamlessalliance.com/publications/
The Alliance is moving rapidly towards an expected demonstration of the technology later in 2019 and anticipates massive interest in Barcelona from the whole communications eco-system.
