Canon HV20: groundbreaking HD cam in 2007, but a little dated now

John M, New York, Amazon
2 April 2010
  • Summary: I bought my Canon HV20 from Amazon three years ago (2007), but I am only now posting a review. In 2007, the HV20 was revolutionary because it was the first serious affordable HDV camcorder you could get for just under $1,000.

HV20 REVIEW

Angel_Pen "angel_rising", Amazon
14 December 2008
  • Summary: I am going to give it a 4 star rating because even though the image quality surpassed my expectations, you still need to buy an external microphone which defeats the portability of the camera. Here is a quick review: Pros: 1) The image is as sharp as they say it is if not better.

Fantastic Image Quality, But 24P Is Tough To Post-Process

James Pine, Amazon
25 June 2008
  • Summary: I used to own a Canon GL2 (prosumer SD 3CCD camera with Canon L lens) but got tired of carrying it around to take travel video which I rarely ended up editing. So I sold it and purchased this, looking forward to HD quality and 24P framerates. The HD quality does not disappoint in any way whatsoever.

Excellent camera at a good price

Jerry Grubb, Amazon
15 April 2008
  • Summary: I am truly impressed with the quality of video I get with this camera. It's small and easy to use, and at an affordable price. However, the battery that comes with it doesn't have much capacity, even though larger/extra batteries are readily available.

HD CANON A SUPER DEAL STEAL!

John D. Min "criticfilm", Amazon
15 February 2008
  • Summary: I've been wanting to switch to High Definition format for some time, but when this camera debuted at $1299, it was a little out of my price range. Now the camera has dropped to $650 plus I got free shipping, what a great deal, so I decided to buy the camera and give it a try.

Great Camcorder but still need to spend $1000

Eddie Johnson, Amazon
15 January 2008
  • Summary: This is my 5th camcorder over the years and so far the best. The camcorder by its self was great for the price but need to spend more for a extra battery, mic, and tapes. Which equals out the same as other HD camcorders, so I'm not mad just beaware.

Great VideoCam, but Canon shortchanges buyers...

  • Summary: I bought this videocam for my wife on Xmas so she could take HD video of our son to put on .mac so I could see shots of my son while I spend every other six-weeks overseas. The camera did not disappoint!

Compact HD camera, best HD value.

edla, Amazon
21 December 2007
  • Summary: This is a great camera. The video output is incredible; guaranteed to put the output of your VHSC, Hi8 or older cameras to shame. The tapes are kind of expensive, but the quality is worth it.

Great Camcorder

Juan J. Ruiz, Amazon
27 October 2007
  • Summary: This thing rocks, the only negative is the motor noise, but it is only noticeable when you first get it, you hardley even hear it while playing the footage on a TV. Also glad Canon has kept using the same batteries, makes it easy to purchase more and a lot cheaper too.

Great Personal HD Camcorder

Edward DeHart, Amazon
23 August 2007
  • Summary: I purchased the Canon HV20 a week before taking a family trip to Ireland. I shot about an hour of video during the trip. I regret not spending more time with the camera. The camera is easy to operate. I did not use the still camera option. I only shot 1920x1080i video.
