Great Camcorder for the price Posted by: from: Chicago on This camcorder is not for the casual user who likes to upload videos to Facebook or any other social media due to its large file size. This camcorder is for those who want to achieve high quality videos or movies to be transferred to Blu-ray discs. This camcorder is very good in low light about 4 to 5 times better than a cheap 300-400 dollar camcorder. The quality of the picture is really full HD. There is no false advertising. This is a great camcorder regardless of experience. It allows full auto shooting and manual shooting. One other important feature is the fact that this camcorder has a build in 32gb hard drive, so there is no real need for sd cards unless you are planing on shooting for more than two hours (one Blu Ray Disc). The only flaw this has is the fact that it is not 3D ready. For the price the manufacturer could have added an extra sensor to support 3D videos. Overall a great camcorder for the price. The quality of the videos from this camcorder is very similar to that of videos taken with professional camcorders.

Great camera for Prosumers Posted by: from: Reno, NV. on I bought the Canon Vixia HFG20 because my Nikon D5100 doesn't focus fast or good enough for me. I like taking videos as well as stills. I chose this camera mainly because of the viewfinder eye piece, great for when its a bright day out. The swing out and reversible side monitor with touch screen works great and easy to use menus. The only issue I have with the camera is a long process the connect to a computer. But with two(2) SD card slots, I just use a 32GB Sd card in slot A, with a 16GB backup SD card in slot B. I set the camera to record to the SD cards first. I can record four(4) hours with the 32GB card and find that's plenty of time. I then just insert the SD card into my computer and transfer the files over. I also love that if you want to be ready for quick recording, you can leave the power on, close both the monitor and viewfinder and the camera will go into a standby mode, just swing out the monitor or slide out the eye piece and its ready to record. There's also a setting to record the previous three(3) seconds prior the pushing the record button. This is helpful if your waiting for something to happen. Overall this is a great camera. I took it to Maui for a week and it ran great and I got some great video. I can't wait for my next vacation.

Awesome Posted by: from: on 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 can get some great family stuff and generally good video in auto mode if that's all you want it for, but learn manual video and exposure, learn the manual audio and experiment with the FPS and you'll love this bad boy for more professional looks. Low light situations are awesome, custom white balancing and 24fps look great. Use Edit Ready or a wrapping software to make sure the AVCHD 30p files import as progressive not interlaced into Final Cut Pro X. The mini shoe mount can be a pain, however you can buy available adapters for that. Get it.

Excellent product Posted by: from: on We purchased this camera when my daughter was appointed to the WWII Young Ambassador Program. She is collecting oral histories of WWII veterans and this camera has been superb. I feel it has met all the qualifications that were required for the interviewing process, and has produced high quality interviews.

Great low light ability. Posted by: from: Hoover AL on I purchased this camera to use in surveillance efforts as a private investigator. It has ample storage with the built in hard drive and two SD card slots which hold up to 32 gig cards. It has a 200 X digital zoom. and a manual focus ring which is very important when manual focus is necessary without opening the side screen and lighting up your face at night. The option of using the view finder at night is a real plus because many cameras don't offer an alternative to viewing through the main screen. The low light capabilities are astonishing and can be controlled from the rear of the camera with the screen closed. It is easy to off load video onto the computer but does not transfer date and time with the USB cable connection. This is a bit of a downside because date and time is rather important for my application. The choices around this are to off load with RC connections and settle for lower quality or to off load through a device such as the hauppauge or similar device which allows the video to be transferred from the camera through the HDMI cable. This keeps the date and time stamp and gives incredible picture quality. This camera is light weight which is a plus but does take several seconds to read the drives before it will record when first powered on. That delay could be costly if an important shot is missed; but overall it is as good as it gets for now.

Professional Camera at Non Professional Price Posted by: from: New York, Ny on Having used a lower end Vixia before, I wanted to get another Canon camcorder. I purchased the cheaper Vixia HFR42 for $299 which was light, flimsy, and did not come with a remote control, so I returned it. I then went with the Sony HDR-CX430V for $699 which was even worse, and decided to fork out the additional $$ for this camera and boy am I glad I did. This one works just like my first Vixia did, easy to use, easy to transfer files, and takes crystal clear beautiful video indoors as well as outdoors. Just plug it in and go, nothing complicated at all with this baby! This is a solid, well made camera that takes professional grade videos at a fair lower end price.

Great Camera - Cheap Software Posted by: from: TN on This camera is great when it comes to picture quality and eas of use. Even the still shots are great. I can't find a major issue with the functions or quality of the camera. It is a great bridge from advanced hobby shooter to a pro level camera. In fact you can do work with this that will rival many pro cameras. But, here is my issue. Many video editors use a Mac set-up and Canon knows this as well as anyone. I wouldn't trade my Mac for 50 PCs. So why would Canon be cheap and not include software to downlaod the movie files from the camera or an SD card. My Adobe sofyware wouldn't even do it correctly so I dropped another $60 for software to do this. It should be part of the package. My other issue is one you can fix with a $10 purchase on eBay. The camera's hotshoe is a mini version and not full size. I use mics that have a full sized connector so I had to by an adaptor. For a camera of this quality I think Canon should assume people will use ad on components that need a full sized hotshot. Other than those two things this is a wonder camera.

great camera for all uses Posted by: from: Davenport IA on This camera has been amazing, I never thought my videos could look so good. I use it for disc golf videos, the quick zoom and clearness of a disc flying through the air at a high speed is better than any camera me or my friends have ever seen. I would recommend this camera to anyone who appreciates high quality and easy to use features. It's fun to use and has great options. It's small enough to carry in the cup holder of my back pack.

Great camera for hobbyists or film students. Posted by: from: on I bought this camera to meet a professional need. (Video interviews, product shots and instructional videos). Some features I found useful: Able to take still shots while actively recording. Continuous filming from the internal storage to the twin SD slots. Multiple options for the storage of media. Some basic editing control built in. Lots of built-in filters. If used in studio, the ability to use an HDMI monitor instead of just the swing out LCD is great for composition. Definitely on the prosumer side of things. If you are just a recreational video person vacation videos and special events (kid's birthday and anniversaries), this may be a bit of overkill.
