At CES, Canon unveiled two rugged and waterproof Vixia camcorders, the HF W11 and W10 -- as far as we can remember, these are Canon´s first video cameras to be similarly tough. They´re shock and dust resistant, waterproof to a depth of 5m, and can withstand temperatures as low as -10°C. However, they are not very high resolution: filming is done max. in FullHD, with 50p.

Also the BSI-CMOS sensor with 1/5.8" is quite small for today´s conditions. The cameras also offer a 40x optical zoom at an initial focal length of 40.5-1620mm and an image stabilizer. The dimensions are 60 x 59.5 x 128mm with a weight of about 300g. They differ in the size of the built-in memory (32 or 8GB; an SD card slot is also available), the W11 also has a small, built-in light.
In contrast, the newly announced Canon Vixia HF G50 films in ultra-high resolution. With the 4K/UHD recording, however, the frame rate is 8 bit at 25p end (4:2:0). In 1080p Full HD are 50p in it (4:2:2 10 bit via SDI/HDMI output). The optical zoom magnifies 20x (converted to Kb the focal length is 29.3-601mm). The type 1/2.3" CMOS with 8.3MP effective resolution (21.1MP total) is read as it seems for FullHD with an oversampling.

The image processor on board is the DIGIC DV 6, there is also a dual SD card slot (as with the HF G40), an "intelligent" optical image stabilization on five axes, and the dual-pixel CMOS AF. Slomo-/Timelaps-recordings from 0.4x to 1200x are also possible.
All three camcorders will be released in April 2019, the Vixia HF G50 for 1099 dollars, the HF W11 for 450 dollars, the W10 for 400 dollars.
