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.

Canon VIXIA HF G20 Review

 

The Canon VIXIA HF G20 is an indie filmmaker camcorder, offering full HD resolution and an excellent design. Unfortunately, it is only capable of filming at 30 fps, and it's far too intense for casual use. Instead, the G20 is a great starting camcorder...

The Canon VIXIA HF G20 has the manual features you need as an indie filmmaker.

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...

Awesome

 

For the price range this camera is truly awesome and that's why I gave it 5 stars. For what it is, it's top notch. A lot of gear in these price ranges take you diving in and learning it to get the best out of it and this camcorder is no different. You...

Great video camera for the money. Only wish the software would work on MACs, but had substitute software to take care of that.
