The HF G25 is a well rounded camcorder well suited to the documentary and short film maker

 

And still they keep coming. Today we received a new Canon HF G25 for testing, and true to recent form for most of the latest camcorder releases, the features and functions / $ are truly staggering. Let's start at the front and work our way backwards;...

Great camera

 

I bought this as it had most of the features of the X10 but at half the price. So far it seems to deliver the goods but a forthcoming holiday will be the real test.

Professional results from a consumer camcorder

 

This is a very good camcorder which gives professional results and it is light compact and easy to use. The eye piece is especially useful on bright days when screens can be difficult to see clearly.
