From the Manufacturer:
True video enthusiasts and advanced amateurs will find their inspirational match in the new VIXIA HF G20. Designed to rival pro-level camcorders in image quality, it's equipped with a Genuine Canon 10x HD Video Lens with 8-bladed iris for stunning quality video and soft, beautiful background blur. The camcorder's Canon HD CMOS Pro Image Sensor provides extraordinary flexibility with extended dynamic range, enhanced gradation, and significantly more light capture for 20% improved low-light performance. You'll record up to 12 hours of crisp HD video to a 32GB internal flash drive or simultaneously to 2 memory card slots (SDHC and fast, high-capacity SDXC). For extra assurance Relay Recording automatically switches recording to the SD memory cards when the internal drive is full so you never miss a moment - the second card takes over automatically when the first becomes full. Dynamic SuperRange Optical Image Stabilization keeps your video smooth and blur-free, even at the long end of the zoom, and Intelligent IS ensures effortless stabilization no matter what the shooting situation. The VIXIA HF G20 can deliver simultaneous output to both the Electronic Viewfinder with pro-style large eye cap, and the bright 3.5-inch Touch Panel LCD. For easy, high-quality shooting, Smart AUTO automatically recognizes and selects proper settings for 38 different scenes, and the camcorder's rich array of manual functions and Professional Shooting Assist Functions bring a new level of control to your video. Your creativity is further supported with newly customizable Cinema-Look Filters to alter the mood and intensity of your video, and Touch Decoration options to add an element of fun and excitement.Features:
