Canon Vixia HF G20 Review


Canon's latest top-of-the-line consumer camcorder delivers great low-light performance with a side of déjà vu.

Good camcorder

Excellent Product


I recently purchased this for my church and it is awesome. The low light specs work well for a church setting and the features just keep coming. Just recently picked up a boom mic and some lenses for some added support.

Excellent results for an amatuer like me


I wanted to get something that would create great looking memories since all our old family videos were good but not really great. This thing is more expensive than what a casual user would like, but it's worth every penny once I saw the results. I'm...
