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?...

Great quality of video shots

 

I love it that its small and durable. I love the HD part, but the part I still need to practice is using the focus settings...I don't know if its me or the video camcorder itself that's not auto focusing when zooming in and out...I think that's mostly...

great camcorder

 

This is a great camcorder that has multiple features for all levels of photography. I would have given it 5* except for the ridiculously high price tag.

great camcorder

 

So far, it is very easy to use. My husband loves it. We don't have to bring a camera and a camcorder anymore because you can record and take photo with this device.

Good Prosumer option

 

It's a little too early to provide complete feedback; but so far I am pleased with the purchase. I've only shot outdoor sports and the results have been high quality. For me, the jury is still out on this camera not supporting 60p, but I have not seen...
