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: 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'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.
A Superb HD Camcorder - flexible automatic & manual features

Summary: I purchased this camera for personal and work use. Although people complain about low light problems, I found settings that use aperature priority and take fine night video. It has fantastic automatic features and just takes some setting up and getting used to to make it produce incredible HD output. I did a lot of research before buying this model. It is truly the closest thing I could find to a profesional camcorder in a small and reasonably priced camera.
Summary: I am blown away by this Camcorder. I did alomost 3-4 months of review on Price/Performance and narrowed down to this one and HFS11/HF200.. Its a joy to shoot with. Images and Vids are crisp, yes blurring is there while shooting in dark and high speed but how many times are you going to do that. Battery life is pathetic so plan to have a spare one.
