Large sensor and high data rate result in great image quality
Despite a few missteps, the Vixia HG21 is one of the better consumer HD camcorders that I've seen. The overall video image quality is very high, and the features and usability are there. If Canon could include the more advanced manual controls from past camcorders, the Vixia HG21 would be a home run.

great video and image quality
Despite a few missteps, the Vixia HG21 is one of the better consumer HD camcorders that we've seen. The overall video image quality is very high, and the features and usability are there. If Canon could include the more advanced manual controls from past camcorders, the Canon Vixia HG21 would be an absolute winner.
Fast, accurate focusing
The Canon Vixia HG21 is an excellent camcorder that delivers superior video quality and decent stills. I can easily recommend it and you really canâ?? t go wrong with this home video maker. Itâ?? s comparable to the Sony HDR-SR12 reviewed earlier and another Editorâ?? s Choice. Since both are $1,299 USD list, a lot boil to personal ergonomics and how important stills are to you (the Sony is better). That said the HG21 records excellent video in almost lighting conditions.
sly, sexy camcorder
Canon has come dressed to impress with the 120GB Canon HG21 hard disk camcorder. Image quality is exceptional, shooting features are bountiful and the menu system is intuitive and stylish. These goodies come at a price, however, as the HG21 sports some no-frills architecture and a poor battery life.
Mind-blowing video quality
The HG21 couldâ??ve had a better LCD, been lighter in weight so that you could be more agile, the face-detection could also be included but it isnâ??t and it is not light on fuel either. All are valid drawbacks, but should most certainly not stand in your way of getting one of these. It is reasonably priced and packs quite a lot of features that work outstandingly well. It is also very easy to use and shoots in HD quality, what more could you ask for.
Superb video performance
Yet again, Canon has proven that it currently bestrides the camcorder market like a colossus. The HG20 is another strong contender. We wish it had a lens ring like the latest flagship models from Panasonic, and a regular-sized accessory shoe. But the superb video performance makes up for both these things, under most circumstances, and otherwise the features are comprehensive.
A digital camera does not even come close to what a camcorder is capable, when it comes to capturing the special moments of special occasions such as your vacation abroad, a wedding or a birthday. Though the holiday season has just passed, we bring you a review of one of the hottest new camcorders launched in India because we think that any time is a good time for this. While analog camcorders are obsolete, there are quite a few varieties in digital camcorders these days.
Improved underwater protection
Despite its low light limitations, it's hard not to like the Panasonic SDR-SW21. We were already impressed by its predecessor, and the new model has noticeably improved underwater protection, better looks, and slightly superior image quality. However, the most significant downside is the price. Consumer electronics have been getting more expensive across the board, thanks to the economic situation, but at over £100 more than its predecessor, the SW21 is close to HD camcorder territory.
Durable body, good feature set
You should really only consider the SDR-SW21 if you're constantly subjecting yourself (and gadgets) to water or small falls. Its standard definition video quality is fine enough, and its optical zoom holds up better than most in the shake department, but the cumbersome design makes the SW21 harder to use than it should be.
It's tough to be a standard-definition camcorder these days, let alone an underwater model. Despite the hefty HD competition out there, we feel that the Panasonic SDR-SW21 etched its name as a reliable all around rugged cam that will suit the needs of many consumers looking for something to toss in their beach bag. Plus, Panasonic is one of the few manufacturers to actually offer a waterproof camcorder aside from Sanyo.
Battery slowly drains even when the camera is off.
The Samsung SC-DX205 is a miniDV camcorder that retails at $200 and was released in 2009. It has a 34x optical zoom which is pretty good for this price range. It has a 680K pixel CCD and a 720x480 pixel resolution, as well as a digital image stabilizer.
You won’t miss any of life’s special moments with this compact, lightweight DVD camcorder. The Samsung SC-DX205 can give you up to 100 minutes of recording time. Plus, with the 2.7-inch LCD screen you’ll easily capture those special shots like baby? s first steps. Now you can capture these memories on DVD discs. No more bulky videotapes and no more hassle.
Footage contains lots of digital artifacts and noise if viewed at full resolution
The Sony Handycam DCR-DVD650 is a standard definition DVD camcorder from Sony's 2009 lineup and is a step up from the DCR-DVD610. The camcorder features hybrid movie recording directly to DVD or Memory Stick Duo media for increased flexibility and is compatible with a variety of DVD formats including DVD+RW.
Record directly to DVD and enjoy it on your TV. Shooting high quality video is easy with the DCR-DVD650 Handycam camcorder. The powerful 60x optical zoom lens gets you close to the action, while SteadyShot image stabilization reduces blur. And with Hybrid recording technology, you can capture it all directly to a DVD or removable Memory Stick Duo or Memory Stick PRO Duo media.
Combo 8GB HDD/DVD camcorder
Even with all the flaws, I have to give Hitachi some praise for designing this hybrid. The idea of burning DVDs in the camcorder really enhances the idea of a HDD-based home video maker. There are definitely issues with the DZ-HS300A, including the documentation and the fact that colors didn't really shine, but that's pretty much the case with all single-chip SD DVD camcorders.
