Summary: I've used this camera in a high school video production class for the past three years. We have two of them that I have borrowed from time to time because I do a lot of filming outside the school realm for a few non-profit organizations.
Summary: I bought this camcorder to do some professional videos. I was very fortunate to get it for $449. Should have bought two of them. Basically, the S200, S20, S21 are the same camera. The S200 has no memory, the 20 has 32GB and the 21 64GB built in.
Summary: I was recently watching some daytime footage of my CANON Vixia HF-S20 on my Samsung HD flat-screen and I had to look twice to make sure it was from the camera and not a movie from my blue ray disc player. I was impressed.
Summary: I worked as a professional cinematographer for years. Shot feature films. Still love film. So digital is still relatively new to me. My stuntman friend bought this camera to block out fight sequences and let me borrow it to shoot some tests. It is truly an amazing camera. For the price..
Summary: I'm really disappointed with this product. It is to heavy and bigger. The quality of the videos and the images are not better than a another camcorder cheaper. And the same worth about the features it has.
Great Camera, just be prepared for a few bumps at first.

Summary: As a test, I shot about 10 minutes worth of video with this camera. Upon returning home, I connected the camera to my Mac PowerBook. Nothing happened. The computer did not recognize the camera, and it did not attempt to install anything.
