Summary: I bought it used (refurbished) for half the regular price shown. What an excellent camcorder! The quality is great, the sound is good, and it is convenient with 2 slots for SD cards... The software is a breeze to use and all in all it is a top class product. Kudos also to the seller!!! Great packaging and service!
Summary: I love this camera. My wife and I bought this as a gift to each other after spending a long time researching cameras. This one has the features we wanted; 1080p to SD (Dual SD and internal hard disk, actually), an external mic jack (very important to us), and a nice optical zoom. Image stabilization is nice, but doesn't work as well as we'd hoped. Otherwise, we love the camera.
Summary: Camera works great! Extremely satisfied! Price was well below what the product is worth! Just wish it would have came with an additional memory card. If you want to record high quality videos for YouTube I recommend the 64 gig class 10 SD card.
Summary: this is the best camera ever. I love the size. Takes great videos. It fit into the bottom of my purse and was light weight. I had no problem hauling this camera around during my trip to Washin gton DC.
Summary: I have had this camcorder for over three months now and I absolutely love it. I am not a pro, so if you are expecting a professional level camcorder, I am sure this is not what you want. However, if you are like me, and you want a decent camcorder for a decent price, you won't go wrong here. I play the drums, and I am a mad man when I do. I play Led Zeppelin, The Who, Tool, lots of very fast paced, very active drumming. This camera does the job and doesn't skip a beat.
Summary: I am very pleased and impressed with the Canon R20! This little HD camcorder is so easy to use and takes great video and even still photos. It's lightweight, though sturdy and easy to carry around. Fits easily into your pocketbook or a small camera case. Has a built in lens cover, which is great for me because I am usually misplacing them. Records up to 8 hours of high def video with great quality.
Summary: When I started shopping for a new camcorder, certain features attracted me to this one: mic input, manual audio level control, manual focus control, manual white balance, and manual exposure control. (I like to tell my equipment what to do, not vice-versa.) The price helped too, or else I might have dropped $8-900 for a new DSLR. Now that I have the R20(I actually found a deal on a reconditioned one), every time I try something different with it I love it more.
