Summary: I had a Sony mini-DV camcorder and decided to go into the HD world for recording the kids stuff. WOW is this thing great compared to the old mini-DV unit. I can't imagine what the 800 dollar units look like. I'm very happy with the quality this R20 produces.
Summary: Did much research on a High Def camera narrowed it down to Canon and Sony mainly due to their name in photography. The selling point for me was 8gb internal memory and double SD card slots. Got camera mainly for recording performances of grandchildren, one dance recitals and two for ballgames.
Summary: with an external mic jack, I wish it had a mic mounting plate. I have only used the camera a couple times, but it seems to take good video. The software it comes with is garbage, but there are other software options.
Summary: After doing some home work on purchasing a camcorder for my wife for christmas I made the choice to purchase this one . We have 2 other canon cameras and are very pleased with each , and the price was good the seller was right on with the ship date and was very well packed.
Great Camcorder and it reminded me to do my homework!

Summary: The other day for my birthday, my wife and I decided that with one grandson and another on the way, it was time to buy a Camcorder. Without doing ANY homework, we bought a new non-HD Sony Camcorder.
Summary: This is my first video camera, we bought it because we have a few month old baby. Before buying this camera I had read some of the other reviews and there were a lot of comments about the battery only lasting an hour, but that wasn't really a factor for me, I don't really foresee myself using it for...
Summary: Delivery was perfect timing just before christmas!I wanted to get something that didnt take a lot of time to learn and I was impressed on how easy it was to operate.Very simple to hook up to TV or COMPUTER, and pictuure quality was great.Definetely recomending this to all my friends!!!!!!
Summary: I purchased this camera so I can make online videos, the videos are clear as crystal, the camera is easy to use if you read the instructions and the transfer of the videos from the camera to the computer is easily done with a software that comes with the camera. It captures the sound extremely well.
Summary: This camera has been a pleasant surprise. Image quality is excellent at all resolutions. The file conversion utility in the camera which downsizes the video for use on the web, works great. The macro capabilities are impressive. The addition of a external microphone connection is a real plus.
