An excellent portable camcorder

D. Banici, Amazon
2 January 2014
  • Summary: This tiny camcorder has a great comprehensive menu to help you get the shot you want. In daytime and with proper lighting it does an excellent job. I recorded with it at night in the dashboard, and it does a decent job, but the night time quality is nothing to brag about. It looks decent as long as you play it as a video, but you can hardly pull quality stills from it, unless you are at a full stop (no shaking) and in a well lit area.

4 Star rating

  • Summary: The product did not show as clear of a picture as I had expected. I returned the camera at my expense. I then contacted the seller about getting a replacement. After several days, one was sent. The image quality is still not what I expected, but I knew it was a used camera. Everything works and the company was good about sending me a replacement camera.

Excellent camera. Love it, but...

Nicole G, Amazon

  • Summary: I've been using this camera for about 9 months now. The picture quality is unbelievably good, I'm constantly getting compliments on my videos and I'm doing NOTHING other than pressing record. I'm a total novice, so it's nice to know the camera is making me look good. It's pretty small, so I can travel around with it, and given the internal memory, I haven't even had to buy a memory chip yet.

Canaon Vixia HF 20 Complex HD Video Camera

ooprogrammer, Ebay
15 August 2010
  • Summary: I wanted an HD video camera to record my son's soccer matches and to use when I travel. I have a Blu Ray player and a DVD burner on my computer but no Blu Ray burner, so the idea of playing AVCHD DVDs on my Blu Ray player was appealing. It took a good deal of effort to figure out how to author those AVCHD DVDs and I found that a little bit frustrating. I first started writing software over 40 years ago, so I consider my self an expert.

Canon Legria HF20

FoTorunn, REVIEW STREAM
27 May 2010
  • Excerpt: This is one of Canons newest camcorders, and has a lot of new and fancy features, although not as many as the HF10 model. But it is cheaper and a bit smaller, and more than good enough if you just want to take videos for yourself and your friends. It costs more than similar camcorders from other brands, but I guess I’m a bit of a Canon fan. And it looks good, it’s all in black and with nice, smooth curves. I The camcorder has a 15* optical zoom.

"Nice camera. Shot a documentary with it."

Rickover1, CNET
20 February 2010
  • Pros: Good picture for its class. Has some semi-professional features. The stereo mic is good.
  • Cons: The internal mic pics up button presses, which are sometimes necessary. Hard to change functions on the fly because you need to navigate to them through a menu. The video codec can be a pain to edit with.

Great Camera

Lee Malone, Amazon
30 January 2010
  • Summary: The video this camera takes is awsome. The camera is extremely easy to use. The only down side to this camere is the software that is bundled with the camera. Software has no where near the capabilities of the Roxio products for burning DVD's.

Very good camera with some drawbacks

D. Adams, Amazon
29 January 2010
  • Summary: There are pleanty of reviews on the HF20/HF200 out there, so I'll just give a few highlights on what I found to be better or worse than expected. Initial video quality: Stepping up from Aiptek ActionHD GVS's, the quality was actually not that much better! Indoor colors here more accurate and low-light performance was greatly improved, but average shooting is quite similar.
