Canon Vixia HF G20 Review

Perfect for my uses

 

I use this product for video depositions. While the activity demands very little of the camera's overall functionality, it checks off the boxes I need it to nicely. Shoots in AVCHD and records timestamping metadata; records to TWO SDXC Memory cards at...

So Far A Great Product

 

This camera was purchased to be used for filming musical theater productions. We needed a product that was able to catch all of the fast paced movement and sound. It has definitely lived up to that so far. We are testing it out on our next upcoming...
