3 Features and Benefits of the Canon Vixia HF20

The Canon Vixia HF20 offers extensive features within a sleek and compact camcorder slightly larger than the average cola can. Canon has ingeniously outfitted the HF20 with multiple capacities and hi-tech features that makes video recording easy and enjoyable. Here are some of those features:

1. Built-in Memory

The Canon Vixia HF20 offers a large 32GB of flash memory storage already built in. Additional memory card slots offer more storage space and longer recording hours.

2. High Definition Recording and Output

There is no need for converters. The HF20 records all video in HD, perfect for HD editing. The HDMI output can link directly to an HDTV and the output can go up to 1080p high definition.

3. Lightweight and Easy Handling

Navigating between joysticks, video light, the 15x zoom lens rocker and the photo button is easy because of its size and grip positioning. Its relatively light for a camcorder and its size allows easy transport in your bag or jacket pocket. Directions for use are relatively easy to understand. It even sports its own wireless remote control for tripod set-ups.

Although the Canon Vixia HF20 is a bit pricey and lacks an optical viewfinder, it’s still one of the best midrange camcorders Canon has created.
