Summary: SUMMARY: Buy it. You won’t be disappointed. This is an extremely solid, professional camcorder at a high-end consumer price. PROS: Picture Quality: As expected, the Canon HF G30HD puts out a very nice HD 1080p picture.
Awesome, Awesome, Awesome. Did I mention? I LOVE my camcorder.

Summary: I did a lot of research over several months, trying to find a more "upper grade" camcorder on a smaller budget. Finally bit the bullet, and ordered this one. I LOVE it. I love all of the things it can do, and eventually, I will become good at using it!
Summary: This is a well-rounded tool. It's really a great camera. I love the customization options, exposure is quickly and easily adjustable. I juggle between this model for my civilian work, and the XA-20 for the video work in my military unit. SOMETIMES I miss the audio arm/handle at the top...
Summary: Decided to upgrade to this from the XA10 professional camcorder. I lost the handle, IR sensor and XLR inputs and gained a better lens and new recording formats. This seems to be the first and currently only camcorder in Canon's consumer lineup that features both their proprietary mini hot shoe along...
Summary: I love this camcorder! I’ve been using it for five weeks, and I’m delighted with its performance and ease of use. The learning curve for the various controls was easily ascended and I now feel very comfortable with its many features.
Summary: I purchased this camcorder for a friend's daughter's wedding. I knew my current camera, a Canon 500, would not be good in the low lighting one sees at receptions. This camera was significantly better in that situation and I was even able to get good personal comments in low lighting.
Summary: I was surprised with the quality of video especially in low light. I totally recommend this camera especially at this price point. I wish it came with a camera bag for the price but its still a good value. Good buy.
Pros: - Good quality video - Great low light video - Easy to use - Fast recording time from the time you turn it on to press record
Cons: - No bag included - No internal memory - No light included on unit
Summary: I've only owned the Canon G30 camcorder for two days now, but it's been an absolutely amazing camera so far. Comparing the Canon HF G30 to the Canon HF M500 camcorder that I have used for recording church services over the last two years: * The video quality at 24Mbps AVCHD is as good as the M500...
Summary: Great camera for an average user, bought it to record my 4 month old. Could not ask for anything else, it's built like a tank and the screen is very responsive. I had a choice from the canon g20 and the g30 glad I choose the g30 for an additional $300.
