    Quick review from a professional still photographer, April 29, 2010

    This review is from: Canon VIXIA HF S20 Full HD Camcorder w/32GB Flash Memory & Pro Manual Control (Electronics)

    I am a professional photographer that needed a camcorder for our first baby on the way. I wanted a camcorder that produced outstanding full 1080P HD video, good optical stabilizer and ease of use. Canon delivers. I was blown away by the quality of the video shot in full auto mode. The colors, vibrance and razor sharp focus completely convinced me that my hard earned cash was well spent. The dynamic stabilizer is amazing. At wide angle, I shot a video one handed while walking my dog. Usually this results in severe motion sickness. Reviewing the video was incredible- very smooth, no jarring. At full telephoto (10x) some movement was noticeable….until you press the Powered IS button located on the bottom left of the LCD. I call it my virtual tri-pod. The Powered IS locks down the image. Completely acceptable, but more, amazing how well it works.

    The LCD panel is gorgeous. It’s a mini HD monitor. It’s a touch panel that works. You can control everything from exposure, focus, aperature, shutter speed, video gain, and more. What’s really cool is the Touch and Track feature. Say you have someone or something (works on objects too) that you want to keep in focus and property expose- just touch the person or thing on the LCD and a box forms around it. It’s so sensitive you can touch someone’s eye and the camera puts focus priority on the eye, vs the nose. This even works with my dog. Really impressed by that.

    As for ease of use, the Auto mode is exactly that. Turn it on, point it and record. The camera is very intelligent and almost always selects the best settings for your subject. This is perfect for someone that doesnt really know a ton about photography/videography but wants to be able to capture life’s precious moments. For more advanced users, there are various settings that will give you hours of fun playing with.

    It has a pop-up video light which works well in a pinch. The hot shoe allows for more sophisticated lights and mics.

    One gripe I do have is the battery performance. True, the LCD eats power, but come on, the standard battery only lasts 40-50 mins tops. Canon should include a larger capacity battery. Canon should also include a wall charger so when you shell out more money for a bigger battery, you can charge that while still using your beautiful camcorder.

    So, to sum up, you will not be disapointed with the quality and ease of use of this camera. Make sure you get a bigger battery and getting a Hoya filter to protect your HD lens is a great idea.

    Outstanding Camcorder – But Shame on Me, December 15, 2010
    By

    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    This review is from: Canon VIXIA HF S20 Full HD Camcorder w/32GB Flash Memory & Pro Manual Control (Electronics)

    I’m torn in writing this review. This is a 5-star camera that I must give a three-star rating to. Here’s why. The following is pulled DIRECTLY from Amazon’s product description here: “To add to its versatile capabilities, the VIXIA HF S20 also features a viewfinder for use in extreme bright light situations.” Well, as it turns out, this is FALSE. Totally false. Only the S21 has a viewfinder, I’m sad to say. Now, this is MY OWN FAULT for relying on Amazon’s description, which is still there as of today 12/15/2010. But the sources I read all did generic HFS20/21/200 comparisons so it was hard to tease out differences. In my haste to snag a camcorder before we head off for the holidays, I mistakenly read that the ONLY difference b/w the S21 and S20 was the on-board memory, and that the HFS200 was the camcorder that lacked the viewfinder and on-board memory. This made intuitive sense and was “confirmed” by the Amazon description. This is wrong. Now, for those of you who will chastise me for relying on Amazon’s description (something I normally do not do), your point is taken, so no need to ding me. However, this product STILL gets only 3 stars for value.

    In terms of quality, this picture is stunning! I mean absolutely brilliant! The build of the camera is outstanding. The controls are slightly non-ergonomic (scrollbar on touchscreen should be on other side for one), but manageable. The audio is perfect, for a prosumer. I purchased the 5.1 Dolby surround external mike and so far, with my limited use, the sound is great. The built in mike is great too, but as far as I know, only this Canon line (HFS200/20/21) offers 5.1 surround. If you want HD video in 1080p/24p then you should want 5.1. So all this gets kudos. The breakdown comes in the “value” department.

    This camcorder is simply overpriced for what it offers. For one, the HFS200 is CLEARLY the best value of all 3. The EVF is really only marginally helpful (honestly the image stabilizer here, another plus, limits the need for the viewfinder to real bright situations). And the on-board memory is unnecessary. If you need more than 6 hours or so of HD video at a time, this isn’t your camera anyway. For the home movie enthusiast, two 32gb cards (and 64gb with a firmware upgrade) is plenty. So the $100 hike from the 200 to S20 is not warranted, IMHO. One can debate the $350 hike from the 200 to the s21, especially if you need the EVF, but as the proverbial “middle” child, this has the least value. Add to the fact that there is no battery charger (must be charged on camera), the included “battery” is a complete joke (about 30 min life so you will HAVE TO buy another one), and there is no case, lens cover, etc. and I think this camera is overpriced for what it offers. I decided on this over the Panny mostly b/c of the sound/fan issue. And b/c it’s actually a great camcorder, I will keep it and eat my wasted $100. But for those of you who are on the fence, do yourself a favor and buy the HFS200 – take the extra $100 and buy two SDHC or SDXC cards and a hoya filter. If you feel like “splurging” for EVF then buy the HFS21. But DO NOT buy this particular model. There is really no justification that I can see.

    Amazing HD Picture and Sound, April 18, 2010

    This review is from: Canon VIXIA HF S20 Full HD Camcorder w/32GB Flash Memory & Pro Manual Control (Electronics)

    Cannon HF S20 – amazes in many ways. Crisp HD Quality and amazing sound clarity as well. Awsome in daylight shoots. Definitely improved LOW light shoots – from older 2009 models. Powered IS does a great Job in reducing handycam shakes. The Cannons AUTO Settings sShoot works like a charm. And great TOUCH Screen-at last- from Cannon. The 8 MP Photo’s were OK, but I guess thats an acceptable quality. Has lot of Manual Controls to play and experiment with. After lot of research on Sonys and Cannon’s 2010 Models I was pretty plseased with this one. I had an Sony earlier and was a bit scptical as well as SONY is known for G-Lens Wide shoot and LOW Quality results but I think Cannons CMOS does a great uplift here. Cannon’s had been iffy on Low Light shoots and this Model shows a great facelift.
    Some flaws – Battery guzzler, eats up battery a lot. The Lens cover makes a rattle noise on a gentle shake, other wise its pretty comfortable for my big hands. The black look gives a rich look. This one DOES NOT comes with Viewfinder ,but I never used it even in my existing Sony. The 32 GB and Dual SDHC Slot is amazing, wireless tranfer of vieos would require you to buy eye-fi cards.
