'Great features that really work well'
'crisp and clear focus'
'10x optical zoom'
'streamlined user interface'

'The camcorder earned an audio score of Good, with noticeably better clarity and volume than rival camcorders offered. '
'impressively deep and professional manual controls'
'Excellent set of manual features.'
'It's beautifully done overall, and Canon gets a tip of the hat for this new design, although nothing beats the accuracy of the joystick (it may not be as cool, but it works!). '
'Generally well-designed interface'
'The HF S21 also includes an electronic viewfinder, and it is Canon's only new camcorder to include such feature. '
'full menu system'
'It lacks the HF20's 32GB built-in memory, which means you're forced to use the SD card slot at all times (an 8GB SD card is included in the sales package). '
'by its unconventional tri-tone color scheme, complete with a lustrous sparkle paint coat.'
'Nicely designed interface.'
'Excellent overall video quality. '
'While the HF S100 has a very crisp, sharp image, it is definitely rivaled by the Sony HDR-XR520V and the Panasonic HDC-TM300. '

'Images look sharp, too.'
'Awkwardly placed USB port.'
'The back of the Canon HG20 is well balanced and
not too bad looking either

The left side of the Canon HG20 will see a lot of action.'
'Does not have a viewfinder.'

'Excellent video quality.'
'at highest video quality'
'The Canon Vixia HF20's ports are well concealed with plastic shields and a rubber shroud, and we liked how the glossy battery fit flush against the back of the camcorder.'
