CANON good as BLUERAY?

Benjamin, Amazon
24 February 2011
  • 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.

Good hardware, Bad software

BIO TREK, Amazon
24 February 2011
  • Summary: The picture quality is excellent for both videos and stills. But after playing around with this camcorder for several weeks I am still unable to use the raw MTS files. I have to downconvert them to AVI using Koyote's free HD converter software. The included software is useless.

Indepentent Filmer

HDMI CABLE BUYER, Amazon
24 February 2011
  • Summary: I have done a lot of research on a good camcorder to buy for filming movies in HD now. By far the canon HF S20 is a winner. It's only $800 and has a built in 32gb hard drive. The film quality on this camcorder is quite amazing, instant auto focus works great and is an awesome feature.

Great Camera, just be prepared for a few bumps at first.

Bob Lee, Amazon
24 February 2011
  • 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.

Canon HF S20 is generally excellent!!

Duncan Rae, Amazon
24 February 2011
  • Summary: I owned a Canon HF S100 prior to this camera and only bought this upgrade due to being able to sell my HFS100 for a good price. First, the positives: Powered IS: This little button is incredible. It makes getting still images at high zoom possible. It has to be tested to be believed.

Amazing Camera For Next To Nothing

Thomas Kuo, Amazon
24 February 2011
  • 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..

Solid Camera with all the features a Dad could want...

Brendan Cosgrove, Amazon
24 February 2011
  • Summary: I borrowed this camera from a friend, since our old MiniDV cam went out, and I couldn't be more pleased with a video camera. The simultaneous stills is a REALLY nice feature that my wife has fallen in love with.

Love the Camera - I finally got the files

onebighappy, Amazon
24 February 2011
  • Summary: I loved this camcorder, although it's a bit over-engineered from a menu/settings perspective. Fabulous video. Clear sound. I even purchased the 5.1 dolby microphone. Thanks to those that responded to my eariler review I figured out how to get the files off of the camera.
