Canon Vixia HG21


$1,300.00 Released October, 2008

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Gathers good audio, everything comes through clearly. Image stabilization works well enough for handheld shooting. Low light recording is above average, gets a fair amount of detail.

The Cons:Battery doesn't last too much more than an hour and a half. Manual doesn't cover much beyond what you need to get started.
