This is a fabulous camera!

  • Excerpt: We purchased this camera before our trip overseas. I didn't have time to read anything about it, we just put it together and tried it out. It was so easy to use! You can record in Standard Def or High Def. It's nice and compact. I highly recommend the camera case. We were in monsoon season and had the camera with us during a massive downpour. We opened the case up and there was no water whatsoever. The microphone does fine. We are thrilled with the HV20!

Great Buy! Great Video!

Amanda Smelser "Subsea", Amazon
17 April 2008
  • Summary: I wanted to do more with the camera before I wrote the review, but I haven't had time to do any video editing on the computer. All I know is that for my use, which is point and shoot video and playback on my HD TV, this camera works great. The picture quality is everything I expected and on 52 inches at high definition, I feel as if I were reliving the moment.

This camera is sick (that's a good thing)

  • Summary: I absolutely love this camera. The picture quality is amazing, and the amount of control you have over your shots is unbelievable. I have access to broadcast quality shoulder mount Sony DVCAM DSR 250's, and find myself using my HV-20 more and more. I'm not even close to realizing it's full potential. Some of the gripes you see on CNET or camcorderinfo, are really a non-issue for me personally.

HV20

C. Nigrelli "art & photo", Amazon
27 December 2007
  • Summary: Bought this HD camera for trip to Kauai. I took a 3 CCD Panasonic SD Video camera on a trip to Costa Rica a few years back, and when I got home and compared the two I was shocked. The color and picture quality of the HD was amazing. The Panasonic was good at the time but can't even come close to the HV20. You need an HDMI cable connected to an HDTV to really see the difference in HD vs SD, but I will never shoot anything but HD again.

Excellent value, image quality, features, manual controls

L. G. CHARLOT, Amazon
23 December 2007
  • Summary: The HV-20 is Canon's "flagship" camcorder, and received [...] "2007 Camcorder of the Year" award. It has the best low-light image quality in it's class (in 24p mode, using 1/48th second shutter speed), and CCI says that it has the overall best image quality of all comparable models. What I like about the HV-20: 1. High definition 1440x1080i video image, using MPEG-2 compression.

  • Summary: The picture is incredible yet the camera is somewhat compact and isn't clunky. I like Canon's redesigned bodystyle. I have previously used Sony's and this camera was very easy to get used to. Used it over Thanksgiving and love the results.
