Canon Legria HF20

 

Good quality videos and photos. Quick autofocus. Logical menu and settings layout.

Image stabilisation system no longer top of the class. Noisy at night.

As far as mid-range camcorders go, there's not much to fault the Canon Legria HF20 for; the image quality is good, the autofocus speedy and feature list fairly full.

Canon Legria HF20

 

Small lightweight and compact, easy to use, good battery life & display of remaining charge time, sharp and clear outside picture quality.

Far too many settings and features makes this more complicated than it needs to be for the casual user, time and patience is required to try out all the settings and choose which is right for you, ie 25fps, 50i, cinema mode (which didn't look any...
