  • Those expecting a huge improvement over the HF G10 will be disappointed. The HF G20 builds on its predecessor's strengths and makes subtle, small improvements. Unless you're dead-set on shooting video with a DSLR, the HF G20 will fit the bill for anyone demanding high quality imaging coupled with a comprehensive array of manual controls.

    Still, in some ways, it's easy to feel that Canon showed up a day late and a dollar short with the lack of 60p recording. In order to sweeten the pot, Canon cut the price.


  • Canon's yearly refresh cycle has left us with a camcorder that still delivers good video quality while substantially boosting battery life. People upgrading from smartphone-caliber HD video will appreciate the image stabilization and mighty 32x zoom. There's also the matter of expandability- instead of robbing your phone of precious internal space normally used for apps and music, the R40 includes 8 GB built-in, plus up to 64 GB through the SDXC card slot.
