'Good Camcorder to start with'
'Excellent set of manual features'
'Superior video and stills'
'Dual SDHC slots'
'The HF S21 also includes an electronic viewfinder, and it is Canon's only new camcorder to include such feature.'
'Fast battery charging'
'Chomps through batteries..'
'While the HF S100 has a very crisp, sharp image, it is definitely rivaled by the Sony HDR-XR520V and the Panasonic HDC-TM300.'
'The still pictures are kind of over processed and saturated due to the flash.'
'in mind though that video isn't quite ready for geotagging; unlike photos, there's no metadata standard for storing the information with the file.'
'Good video quality'
'Its battery life is also decent; the Sony Handycam HDR-XR200V's rechargeable battery lasted nearly 2 hours on a single charge (111 minutes in our test), which netted a battery life score of Good.'
'of its ports and functions already available on the camera, it was a wee bit redundant.'
'The lower bit-rate video looked slightly softer, however, which leads me to believe Canon simply needs to optimize its noise-suppression algorithms for the new mode.'
'Power button difficult to use.'
'Canon's Zoom toggle is wide and shifts smoothly—it's definitely preferable to JVC's tiny toggles.'
'Excellent video quality'
'at highest video quality'
'Buttons and controls are minimal on the Vixia HF20 and the camcorder's Power button was difficult to access because it was buried in a groove along the top.'
'adjustable screen brightness'
'performance, and image quality didn't live up to its high price tag.'
'lack of a viewfinder'
'The JVC GZ-HD3 is a good choice for the low end Prosumer.'
'The SX5 can copy from the SD card to a DVD with a single button press, and the SD5's firmware now allows it to communicate directly with a standalone DVD burner'
'chunky rectangular zoom slider'
'When activated, the camcorder continuously records three seconds of video by putting it into a cache, so you'll never miss that all-important goal or collapsing wedding cake.'
'the small touch-screen LCD and lack of an eye-level viewfinder'
'the smallest and lightest AVCHD camcorder available.'
'With the Sony HDR-SR5 Handycam camcorder in hand, capturing life's precious moments is simple.'
'compact and capable HDR-SR5 high definition Handycam camcorder'
