Summary: We've completed our field testing of the Canon HFG30 HD camcorder. This camcorder is one mean motor scooter, for sure. There are more ins/outs we have to master, but first take, two thumbs up.
Summary: Product arrived with a damaged OEM box, NO BATTERY, FINGER PRINTS ALL OVER DISPLAY. LENS COVER OFF, NO PROTECTIVE FILM ON DISPLAY. Supplemental Batteries purchased ARE NOT ACCEPTABLE TO CAMERA!!!! This is an expensive buy to look like this.

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.
