Hands-On Review: Canon 32GB VIXIA HF G20 Camcorder
The Canon Vixia HF G20 is the company's new top-of-the-line consumer camcorder, and in this review, Mia McCormick, of Kelby Media, praises it for its color accuracy, crisp 1080p video capture, and low-light sensitivity. Indeed, the Vixia HF G20 offers improved low-light performance compared to that of its predecessor, the HF G10.
For better shadow and highlight details, the Canon Vixia HF G20 also offers much better dynamic range than some of the more affordable Vixia models, thanks to its 1/3" CMOS Pro Image sensor. The camcorder features a built-in 10x zoom lens that starts fairly wide, at a 35mm equivalent of 30.4mm. For help with image stability, especially while you're shooting at longer focal lengths, the camera features Canon's Dynamic SuperRange Optical Image Stabilizer.
