Summary: I finally decided to replace my Sony 8mm camcorder with an HD camcorder. Read the reviews about the Canon Vixia HG21. Sounded good to me. Bought it, took it to the beach to film the wife and kids in HD. Read the manual and set proper settings before we left. Got home and watched it on a 46' inch Samsung HDTV. WHAT? The video would blur, if the camera moved slighlty, then, the second the camera was held steady, the video would snap into High Def.
