Canon Vixia HF S20 review

 

Though I really liked Canon's 2009 prosumer Vixia HF S1x series, I couldn't fully endorse the HF S10/S11 because it lacked an electronic viewfinder, a feature that higher-end users appreciate. Camcorders with EVFs are easier to hold stably while...

Canon LEGRIA HF S21 review

 

Pocket HD camcorders are fine tools for shooting Vimeo shorts, but if you've got bigger screen ambitions you'll be after something a little more high-end. Something like Canon's new Legria HF S21. It's a Full HD camcorder, of course, but also rocks...
