Summary: I love this camera glad I bought it.. I have owned a hg20 for about 5 years thought it was perfect so when I wanted a new camera I bought this one same camera a little more power and space... check out this link for video shot with it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?
Summary: I bought this again, when the screen died on my other camera - after 6 years (so not bad). I decided to find a new version or new camera that would work well with MACs (this doesn't), but there was nothing I could find with all the memory on a hard drive. The problems are that when the wide angle is on, edges can be seen. This requires cropping some photos. Since it doesn't work automatically with a MAC I had to purchase Toast Titanium. That converts all of the videos.
Summary: Before I purchased this camcorder I researched for about 4 months, comparing features and quality among all available consumer camcorders available. I've had this camcorder for over a year, in that time I've shot approximately 150 hours of video with it. The quality of video it produces is excellent. Low light quality is on par or higher then any camcorder you will find in the same price range.
Summary: This camcorder does everything and more. Options are awesome and picture quality is life like in good lighting. The battery that the camcorder comes with has a very short life (maybe 90 min), buy the upgraded battery (260 min) and charger when you buy the camcorder. Read all the manuals and I suggest reading some additional books on basic lighting and composition to improve your shots.
Summary: This is a great camcorder! Its easy to use, compact, great picture quality. It's small enough to carry in your coat pocket and it's light weight. If you are wanting to shoot vids of ballgames, vacations, birthday parties, family events, this is definitely the camera to use. I ordered the Canon BP-82 battery and thePro Series CAMCORDER Carrying Bag and it all fits well together.
Summary: I am a young aspiring director, and am in the process of buying a lot of my own equipment for shooting videos to enter in film festivals. I have to tell you, what I've seen of the HG-21's sheer picture to price ratio has completely floored me. I've shot on many DV cameras that cost hundreds of dollars more than this one, but none of them can hold a candle to this camera's picture!
Summary: I'm extremely happy with the purchase of my Canon Vixia HG21 120 GB camcorder. Very good clarity, sound and lots of features. For some serious shooting, would recommend an extra pair for battery. The camcorder looks perfect with smooth and curvy edges. 100% genuine product and the best part is the price. Awesome deal. Shipping was instant and received within mentioned time frame. Would highly recommend this seller.
