Canon Vixia Mini review


The Canon Vixia mini is a compact camcorder designed for the “selfie” generation. If you love making videos of yourself for posting on YouTube, then this camera is for you. Otherwise, you may find limited practical use for it.

When we first got the Vixia Mini, we were hoping for more of an action-oriented camera in the GoPro Hero mold. The lack of built-in durability and accessories, however, really limits the Mini in this regard. One area in which the Vixia Mini could...

Canon Vixia HG2x review:


The Canon Vixia HG20 is an excellent HD camcorder that's reasonably easy to operate out of the box and looks good, too. It's almost identical to the company's Vixia HF11 , but rather than recording mainly to internal flash memory, it records to a hard...

Excellent video quality; 60GB hard drive; attractive, understated design.

Wind filter not as dependable as previous Canon models; manual focus pretty useless.

Like its cousin, the flash-based HF11, Canon's Vixia HG20 delivers excellent HD video quality and performance albeit in a slightly larger, heavier package. However, you do get more storage space and a lower price.

Great camera


Great camera for a pocket size camera. Easy to use great fish eye lense for its size. Minor fixtures could've been made, in opinion. Can't beat the weigh of it.

Great cam


I wasn't sure if this would work well recoding indoor volleyball games but it did a pretty good job! I am very happy! Great option to just set it on the bleachers or use a tripod! Wide angle lens or close up works great depending on where you set it up.

The GoPro for the rest of us


We bought it to use as a second static camera in an instructional video. We then synced the footage with the primary camera in final cut pro. Worked great. Our primary is a Canon G20. The Mini's controls are similar to the G20, so it's easy to...
