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.

Those expecting a huge improvement over the HF G10 will be disappointed. The HF G20 builds on its predecessor's strengths and makes subtle, small improvements. Unless you're dead-set on shooting video with a DSLR, the HF G20 will fit the bill for...

Excellent!

 

Excellent quality (semi-pro), wide array of options for mics and mounts, intelligent interface. I actually used this for wedding videos and they turned out better than the my videographer's work

None, this is the best bang for your buck camera that I've found thus far. If you want more input/output or audio mixer options you'd need to look into professional rigs. This is not necessary if you just want to use the onboard mic or attach a single...

Good camcorder...

 

..I don\'t like the fact that you cannot remove the displayed text, e.g. \'func, zoom, battery, etc.\' text from the screen when doing a direct or straight recording to a DVD recorder while in AUTO MODE...who wants this stuff on their played back DVD?...

Decent Camera, Too expensive..

 

This is a very nice camera indeed, but its hyped up a bit too much. it just isn't worth the cost. You would be able to find a camera with equal greatness for around $500.

Disappointed In G20

 

I purchased the G20 camera as a replacement to my Vixia HF M52 camera (which was stolen) with the hopes of an upgrade in video quality. Although this camera has may 'bells & whistles (that I have little or no interest in), the video quality is no...

Great camera for sports!

 

I purchased this video camera to take to the State Championship. The battery life is great. It's easy to use and the quality of pictures/videos is perfect! I haven't purchased a video camera for years since I just use my phone. My phone has definitely...

Well equipped and easy to use.

 

I like the features on this camcorder. It is well built and is easy to use. This is my first camcorder and I'm very glad I bought a Canon.
