Summary: I bought it about 2-3 weeks ago. I carried it with me during my trip to Washington D.C.. You can use it to record every scene you like. But there is something I don't like. 1. the focus length, 43.5-435mm, is relatively too long.
Summary: Overall, great video – the colors and vividness will amaze you. New Egg pricing is not the most competitive but overall still a good buy. Very nice small unit and overall quite light. The rattle noise is not something you would expect from a $900 camera.
Pros: Video Quality: What can I say, the video is phenomenal under normal and well light conditions (out-door is great!). One of the best video qualities I have seen in the prosumer / amateur videographer category – in the sub $1200 category. Audio Quality: The audio recording is great. Wind and other ...
Cons: Low Lux Shooting: Videos shot in low light conditions still have a lot to be desired of. The picture is grainy and dark even when tweaking and adjusting shooting settings. Holding Camera: The position the camera has to be held when shooting can get a bit uncomfortable after long periods of shooti...
Summary: I have owned Canon products before and decided to purchase the Vixia HFS20 after looking at many online reviews. The picture quality is amazing. One thing Canon could have done is include a battery charger with the camcorder. Otherwise no complaints at all.
Summary: I'm a huge picture taker and have really been doing more and more video especially HD. I thought it would be great to review this Canon compared to the Samsung I got a year ago which is almost the same. First off, the Canon is a bit bulkier looking and not as streamlined like the Samsung.
Summary: This is a great little camcorder. The fact that it incorporates a good digital still camera eliminates the need for a still digital camera. I only wish that Canon had incorporated a view finder. Having to use the LED, especially in bright sunlight is not good. Overall picture quality is excellent.
Firmware Updates No Longer Offered - Product End Of Life - Class 10 SD Card Issues
4 July 2009
Summary: The camera is fantastic. However, I am writing this extended comment regarding the camera's firmware and ability to use CLASS 10 SD memory cards and hope that you find these comments helpful. I purchased the Canon Vixia HF S10 camcorder last week.
Summary: The Vixia HFS10 is an upgrade for me, coming from the . I've been enjoying the HG20 for a few months now, so being able to dig in to the new features on a 2009 model camera has been a real treat. Right off the bat, the video image quality on the HFS10 is incredible.
Summary: Although a little pricey it is worth the extra money when considering a Flash Hard drive and memory card slotted device over a typical internal hard drive. The reason is the capability on this camera is second to none regarding over all picture quality.
Summary: Read the description for the full list of features; these were the features which made an impression on me. Pros: Takes great pictures and video, especially good low-light performance and continuous-mode shots. Flash and video light included, although with the usual caveats about flash photography.
Summary: I bought this to use it in shooting some documentaries and some small production projects and CANON didn't let me down on this one, the body is small and perfectly sized for extreme mobility, the HD output of this thing is amazing, the picture quality is solid and crisp and the colors are vivid.
