  • 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 assorted high-end features mean its pretty pricey.
  • Pros: Enormous 120GB hard drive; ravishing video; optical image stabilisation.
  • Cons: Sound could be better; frustrating joystick menus.

Canon Vixia HG21 Review

  • 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. Since both are $1,299 USD list, a lot boil to personal ergonomics and how important stills are to you (the Sony is better). That said the HG21 records excellent video in almost lighting conditions.
  • 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. Unless you absolutely must have 120GB of storage, go for its cheaper sibling instead.
  • 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). Mimo, że kamera jest dość duża trzyma się ją dość wygodnie (ze względu na wagę model ten polecamy raczej mężczyznom) i tak też operuje.
  • 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. Die Konkurrenz besitzt im Vergleich mittlerweile teilweise deutlich bessere Displays (Sony SR11/12) und mehr manuelle Steuerung von außen (Sony SR11/12, CX11, Panasonic HS100, SD100).
  • 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

  • Summary: Kameraet fra Canon hedder HG21 og har et tungt prisskilt hængende rundt om halsen. Med en pris, der næsten er det dobbelte i forhold til det billigste, og det faktum, at det er lavet af Canon, gør, at vi forventer os en hel del af HG21.
  • Pros: Suveræn skarphed, Gennemtænkt og prof fornemmelse
  • Cons: Kvalitet koster
