  • Summary: Recently got the HG20. Am fairly pleased with the perform of the camera, so all is good there. Unfortunately, I'm not so happy with the editing software. It's incredibly basic, and has a lot of issues. Initially I was having some issues with this software using my laptop (which I discovered is a tad under spec with having only a Intel Core 2 Duo @ 2GHz), so I installed it on a friend's new computer which is over spec'd with a Quad CPU processor and more than enough...

  • Summary: This is a great camera in all respects bar one. As a Mac user, I am now having great difficulty getting my footage off the camera. Canon has forced the user over a barrel by forcing you to use their software. And just to annoy us that little bit more, the software WILLL NOT WORK on a Mac. I am now having to look at alternative ways of accessing my footage, which has disappointed me no end.

  • Excerpt: Я бы не стал брать эту камеру, лучше поискать более простую и удобную, чем такой девайс, за который накрутили цену!
  • Pros: Качество съемки, Быстрая работа, без тормозов, Отличный зум
  • Cons: ПО! Это просто ужас! Я никак не могу загрузить файлы с жесткого диска на комп! Все нормальные камеры, при подключении распознаются как "Съемный диск", а этот агрегат не показывается ни в какую! Только с помощью проги (как говорится в инструкции), которая абсолютно не видит камеру! Приходится снимать на флэшку! Огромный минус такой качественной камере! Также мало ручных настроек, да и те которые есть очень неудобные! Еще нет видоискателя, а это жирный минс!

  • Summary: ContundentePresentada a principios del pasado mes de agosto, la HG20 pertenece a la última hornada de videocámaras HD de Canon. Heredera directa de la HG10, si bien con un cuerpo rediseñado y un disco duro de 60 GB, la HG20 destaca principalmente por su excepcional calidad de imagen y su construcción y ergonomía intachables.
  • Pros: liviana
  • Cons: ninguna
