  • Like its cousin, the flash-based HF11, Canon's Vixia HG21 delivers excellent HD video quality and performance albeit in a slightly larger, heavier package. However, you do get more storage space and a lower price.

    - The HG21 has a 9-point AF system so the 3MP photos are pretty sharp but colors are not always 100 percent accurate.
    - The Vixia HG21 has a 3.3-megapixel CMOS sensor which makes it capable of recording high-def video (1920 x 1080I) and 2048 x 1536 pixel (3MP) stills.


  • - The overall video image quality is very high, and the features and usability are there.

    - The front of the camcorder is pretty active.
    - The right side of the Canon HG20 offers a good grip

    The Back (6.0)
    The back of the Canon HG20 is fairly simple.

    - The Vixia HG20 records at 24Mbps (which is the highest AVCHD bit rate currently available) and is equipped with Canon's SuperRange Image Stabilizer and Instant AutoFocus for reducing blur.
    - Can record video to external SD/SDHC media (cheap, capacious and easy to find).


  • - It's difficult to recommend this camcorder over much cheaper, MiniDV models, because the image quality lags so far behind.
    - Recording functions are easy to understand.

  • Rating Unavailable

    - All the major buttons are positioned in convenient places and recording is made very easy.

    - The colors were quite lackluster however.
    - All of this button placement on the left side guarantees that one-handed operation for anything but straight point-and-shoot is impossible.
    - It's the manual control sections that can get a little tricky.
    - Maneuvering through the Function menu can get tedious with the sharp, little joystick.
    - The colors were far more vivid than in video mode, so bright (as opposed to richness of the DCR-DVD403) I might call them a little overexposed.

    - Never miss the moment with Quick Start.

    - The slick Mode switch is a nice touch, offering a more secure system as opposed to a round dial that is prone to inadvertent jostles.

  • Rating Unavailable

    - A Bright mode for the LCD monitor is handy when you're shooting outdoors in strong sunlight, but the manual warns you that this setting will drain the battery faster.
    - Though still photos weren't impressive, the DC210 does let you convert captured images into 3-second MPEG-2 files that you can insert into your movies as scenes.
    - Battery life in our tests was a respectable 109 minutes, but you have to plug in the AC adapter to finalize a disc.

    - The Canon DC210 captured good but not great, video in lab tests.
