Excellent camera - BUT WATCH FOR COMPATIBILITY

E. Rossi, Amazon
27 April 2009
  • Summary: I love the camera and the video quality. But check the video format and see if it's compatible with your software and your other videos. Adobe Premiere, for example WAS not fit to edit this camera's videos (look for updated review below)!!! I am using Vegas editing software (you can buy it online).

24 January 2009
  • Summary: @ Everyone complaining about how poor this camcorder fares in a low-light condition should take a look at this test I conducted with the Canon Vixia HF11. Keep in mind that the HF11 and the HG21 both have the same specifications except that the HG21 has a 120GB HD, (which I care little about cause...

  • Summary: The camera is easy to use out of the box. Takes quality picture in most condition, even low light. The stills are comparable to a point and shot camera. The only negative is the editing software, its weak.

Wonderful Camera under $1500!!!

A. Almanza, Amazon
24 January 2009
  • 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.

great video

MJ, Amazon
24 January 2009
  • Summary: Love this camcorder. The video is beautiful, especially in low light, which was a concern since I read many reviews of other video cameras that indicated the low light performance was not very good. It's super easy to use, and very lightweight.

Excellent Value

C. Johnson, Amazon
24 January 2009
  • Summary: The Vixia HG21 is an excellent camera. The image quality surpasses others that I have seen. Using Shutter Priority (Tv) I was able to capture waterfalls on HD video and on Still image with the misty quality that Ansel Adams had captured with his large format cameras.

HG21 Works for Mac/iMovie

Amazon Customer, Amazon
24 January 2009
  • Summary: HG21 is probably the best HD Camcorder out there. I say this because I have tried another high end camcorder from Sony with a 120GB harddrive, which (the Sony) was unbelievably disappointing in both color and resolution. Fortunately, we bought it at Costco, and just returned the Sony within a day.

Great camera but no FireWire/IEEE port

B. S. Sanchez, Amazon
23 January 2009
  • Summary: This camera has a great image quality but only support USB computer connections. Mac based systems require IEEE for direct connect and recording. Nonetheless I get great video quality from this camcorder.

Happy so far

M. Hess, Amazon
23 January 2009
  • Summary: I haven't had the camcorder for too long. What I can say is that I am soo thankful I bought the larger capacity battery. The original lasts about 30min on the highest settings. The high capacity battery is almost 3 hrs. The stabilization really makes this camera worth every penny.
