  • Summary: The Canon HG21 is an excellent camcorder that does so many things right and hardly anything wrong. Our only concern is that it might be a victim of it's own success. Its flexibility means more more potential outlay on accessories, its huge hard drive means you're not likely to ever fill it, its...
  • Pros: Enormous 120GB hard drive; ravishing video; optical image stabilisation.
  • Cons: Sound could be better; frustrating joystick menus.

Canon Vixia HG21 Review

Digitaltrends
30 September 2008
  • Conclusion: The Canon Vixia HG21 is an excellent camcorder that delivers superior video quality and decent stills. I can easily recommend it and you really can’t go wrong with this home video maker. It’s comparable to the Sony HDR-SR12 reviewed earlier and another Editor’s Choice.
  • Pros: Terrific video; fast and accurate focusing
  • Cons: LCD display could be better; no face detection; poor battery life

  • Summary: Sporting a viewfinder and a 120GB hard disk, is Canon's HG21 HD camcorder a better buy than the HG20? James puts it through its paces.

Nice video, shame about the price.

  • Summary: When judged on its own merits, the HG21 is an exceptional high-def camcorder that impresses on nearly every level — it even seems attractively priced. However, when compared to the near-identical HG20, its value for money is significantly diminished.
  • Pros: 120GB hard drive, excellent Full HD video quality, impressive array of modes and features
  • Cons: Too expensive compared to the HG20, poorly constructed viewfinder

  • Conclusion: Jedna z większych i cięższych kamer HD, jakie testowaliśmy ostatnio w laboratorium. Spore gabaryty spowodowane są głównie tym, że konstruktorzy musieli wewnątrz kamery zmieścić twardy dysk (model HG21 dysponuje dyskiem o pojemności 120 GB a bliźniaczy model HG 20 - 60 GB).
  • Pros: Bardzo dobra jakość obrazu, Dobry autofokus i stabilizacja
  • Cons: Zła lokalizacja wyłącznika

  • Conclusion: Wie schon alle Vorgänger glänzt diese Canon-Kamera durch tadellose Bildschärfe und gute manuelle Einstellmöglichkeiten. Kritisieren muss man vor allem den geringen Weitwinkel und die fehlende Zebra-Funktion.
  • Pros: Schärfe und Farben reizen AVCHD praktisch voll aus, Viele Einstellmöglichkeiten
  • Cons: Keine Zebra Funktion, keine 1/25 Sekunde Belichtungszeit im Cinema-Modus, Geringer Weitwinkel, Manueller Fokus schlecht gelöst

Überzeugender Full-HD-Camcorder: Canon HG21

CNET
13 February 2009
  • Summary: Der Canon HG21 ist ein hervorragender Camcorder, der fast alles richtig und kaum etwas falsch macht. Bleibt nur zu hoffen, dass er nicht seinem eigenen Erfolg zum Opfer fällt. Denn seine flexiblen Einsatzmöglichkeiten verlocken zu weiteren Ausgaben für Zubehör.
  • Pros: riesige 120-GByte-Festplatte, fantastische Videos, optische Bildstabilisierung
  • Cons: Klangqualität könnte besser sein, nervige Joystick-Navigation
