    Fantastic camera! You won’t be disappointed! Right out of the box, it seemed very solid and high quality which one should expect for the price. The new lens hood not only works better, but also looks a lot cooler. The touch tracking focus works great and is extremely useful. In low light this camera really is just amazing. It’s much better for that than any dslr I’ve used. The image stabilizer is very helpful. I have compared it to my dslr footage and it is MUCH more stable meaning you probably don’t need a shoulder rig. I just wish that the focus ring was not so hard to turn because some times i mess up the video when trying to turn it really far. The only advantage for me when shooting with a dslr is that you get manual zoom. But it’s still fine with this camera. Also, the battery that it comes with is very small, so I would recommend buying some extras. The off brand batteries will work great and it’s super cheap. But other than those two things, this camera is just perfect. If you aren’t super picky about audio than this is fine. But if your in a production business and need really good sound quality, you should look at the xa10.I was a little hesitant to buy this because I thought it was going to have a deeper depth of field according to what I have read about camcorders in general. Someone also told me that camcorders don’t have a shallow depth of field. When I first took it for the test, i was quite surprised. The performance was really pretty good, so don’t be too worried about that if you like a shallow depth of field. Using manual focus is great and I can get a lot out of focus.I don’t think that it’s weather proofed, but i have never had a problem and am never afraid to take it out in some snow which I do quite often. Like I said at the top, it is quite solid meaning it’s pretty heavy compared to the other camcorders i was looking at below $1500. So if you want to go skiing with it and put it in your pocket, it will weigh down your jacket. So bringing a backpack if your going skiing or for a hike is a good idea.I love using dslr’s and were used to them. But now I can never come back to dslr’s. Using this camera is just so easy and simple. You can start shooting so quick. The start up time is pretty good, especially compared to dslr’s I’ve used. I know that some nikon’s have auto focus for video, but there is no comparison. The auto focus on this camcorder is lightning, and i never worry about it in low light. Also, most dslr’s that do auto focus during video is loud enough to ruin audio. And obviously, This is completely silent. And this makes the camera just that more simple and easy.I am very happy with the camera so far. I have tried to upload some test video but it said that it wouldn’t except the format. So if you already have a g10, than it probably isn’t worth upgrading. But highly recommended and you will most likely be satisfied.

    Great camcorder for the DSLR fan I thought I would never get a camcorder with all the high tech HD video modes of capture out there these days. I found using video on my Canon 5d mark II superb in quality but lacked real layman control. I missed being able to focus instantaneous in a shot and the form factor of a DSLR as a video camera definitely is not there for run and gun situations I am finding my self into chasing a 2 year old around. Sure you can spend money on an elaborate setup that can turn the DSLR into something like a camcorder but I like the compactness the likes of the G20 offered.So enter the Canon Vixia HF G20. I was interested in a sub $1200 HD camcorder and I am always a first to want a new thing so in return, and you, get an early review having 2 weeks with it so far. From what I know the camcorder is exactly the same as the G10 predecessor except for the new HD Pro sensor that allows more light capture. So I preordered and at the same time ordered this great book (I know its for the G10 and XA10, but all the G20 has is the better sensor) – Now with the camcorder, I am happy I have read the book and use little of the huge manual that came with the G20.So far it has shocked me how well the camcorder takes video and although the controls do take a little time to master, the touch screen works well. Maybe they did improve on it from the complaints I read on the G10.I did drop one star for two reasons. The battery that comes with it is terrible so you best splurge on the max capacity one . Also I wish they included a shoulder strap to carry the camcorder around easily.So I will promise to update in 6 months, but so far so good!
