Canon Legria HF20 digital video camera

 

Full HD flash memory-based camcorder with 32GB of inbuilt memory

Good image quality in optimum lighting, 3.5mm microphone jack, speedy 24Mbps AVCHD bit rate

Poor low light performance (compared to the Canon HF11), slightly cumbersome and uncomfortable design

The Canon Legria HF20 is a decent high-definition camcorder with some interesting features on board. Unfortunately, it is trumped by its HF11 sibling; an identically-priced model that offers a superior low-light performance.

Canon Vixia HF20

Broad manual feature set unusual in a camcorder its size; excellent video quality; attractive, functional design.

Relatively expensive.

While it's more expensive than its sub-$600 competitors, the Canon Vixia HF20 and Vixia HF200 deliver a more extensive feature set for the extra money. The HF200, which lacks internal memory, is probably a better buy than the HF20, though the HF20's...
