Flash Memory Camcorder
Flash Memory camcorders are able to read and write data faster than camcorders which use other types of storage. This means that you will be able to start recording faster and have immediate access to your recorded scenes. Because Flash Memory is solid-state storage, it is extremely stable. That means that accidental jolts to the camcorder are much less likely to result in failure or data loss. Since Flash Memory contains no moving parts, the camcorder requires less power. You will gain the advantage of longer recording times, perfect when on vacation or when capturing sports events and special occasions. Flash Memory allows the camcorder to be smaller, more compact, and lighter than ever before. You will benefit from sleeker design and the ability to take your camcorder anywhere.

Canon HF G20
Canon HD CMOS Pro True HD Image Sensor (1920 x 1080)
Canon's expertise in designing and manufacturing CMOS image sensors for its line of EOS Digital SLR cameras is now available in Canon HD camcorders. The Megapixel Canon CMOS sensor captures true HD information at 1920 x 1080, giving your images the ultimate in realistic detail. Canon's advanced noise reduction technology, ensures the purity of each pixel even in dim light, minimizing noise and other aberrations. It incorporates an RGB Primary Color Filter with Bayer placement to deliver a sharp HD image with vibrant and accurate color reproduction. The VIXIA HF G20 camcorder features the Canon HD CMOS Pro Image Sensor, a 1/3-inch native 1920 x 1080 image sensor that incorporates the same proven technology at the heart of Canon's pro-grade camcorders. The HD CMOS Pro Image Sensor defies convention: using fewer pixels than typical consumer camcorder sensors, it delivers far superior video performance.

Outstanding Video Resolution (800 Vertical and 900 Horizontal TV Lines): The effective number of pixels in the HD CMOS Pro Image Sensor is exactly equal to 1920 x 1080, the resolution of Full High Definition video. Because there is no need to resize the image captured by the sensor, Full HD video is recorded with the utmost precision, resulting in exceptionally high resolution.

Superb Low-Light Performance (1.5 Lux*): Because the pixel dimensions are precisely those needed to capture Full HD, each pixel site is larger and more sensitive to light. This results in far greater light gathering capability, enabling high-quality video to be captured even in dim lighting.

* Rating measured with auto shutter speed of 1/30 of a second.

Wide Dynamic Range: The larger pixel area also enables more light to be stored, making it possible to detect and capture a wider range of tonal values. The sensor design yields an improvement in dynamic range, enabling both highlights and shadows to be reproduced with remarkable accuracy and depth. Skin tones are captured with fine gradation.

Genuine Canon Optics - 10x High Definition Video Lens With 8-Blade Iris And Manual Focus Ring
With more than 70 years of expertise in manufacturing lenses for professional broadcast and still photography, the Canon name represents optical excellence. The HF G20 features a Genuine Canon 10x HD Video Zoom Lens designed specifically to capture crisp high definition video. It incorporates an aspherical lens, super spectra coating technology and a gradation ND filter design to ensure stunning image quality, while minimizing aberration. Super Spectra Coating technology results in images with minimal flare and ghosting. Plus, the lens' aspheric design reduces aberration and increases resolution, ensuring crisp, sharp video and enhancing the HD image quality. The gradation neutral density (ND) system gives you better exposures in bright shooting situations.

The 8-Blade Iris ensures smooth, professional-looking backgrounds, providing smooth background blur and reduced lens diffraction. The lens also includes a dedicated manual-focus ring for enhanced control. For those times when you need to get a particular shot from a very long distance, this flexible lens also has a 200x digital zoom.

True HD 1920 x 1080 Video
Canon's expertise in designing and manufacturing CMOS image sensors for its line of EOS Digital SLR cameras is now available in the Canon HF G20 HDV camcorder. The 8.59 Megapixel CMOS sensor captures true HD information at 1920 x 1080, giving your images the ultimate in realistic detail. Canon's advanced noise reduction technology, ensures the purity of each pixel even in dim light, minimizing noise and other aberrations. It incorporates an RGB Primary Color Filter with Bayer placement to deliver a sharp HD image with vibrant and accurate color reproduction.
RGB Primary Color Filter
The HF G20's True HD CMOS Sensor's RGB Primary Color Filter separates the light passing through the lens into individual red, green, and blue color components, the same color filtration used in professional 3 CCD camcorders. As a result, the HF G20 deliver richer, more vibrant, and more accurate color reproduction than models using a conventional complementary color filter.
DIGIC DV III Image Processor
DIGIC DV III is Canon's most advanced HD image processor ever, helping to deliver enhanced image quality, true color production for both video and photos, and a sophisticated noise reduction system for exceptional low-light performance. It is also the high-speed engine which powers a variety of Canon technologies including the 8.0 Megapixel photo capture, 6.0 Megapixel Simultaneous Photo Recording, Advanced Auto Exposure system and Genuine Canon Face Detection. Plus, the Canon DIGIC DV III Image Processor allows continuous shooting of digital photos with the VIXIA HF G20. You can also enjoy faster processing of your images to your memory card (1.4x normal card; 2.5x Hi Speed card). In addition, it helps lower power consumption for longer battery life.
Canon HF G20 3.5-inch LCD Screen
3.5-inch High-Resolution Touch Panel LCD and Widescreen Color Viewfinder
Canon's Touch Panel LCD Screen offers easy menu navigation and quick control over a variety of camcorder functions -- such as scene selection, Genuine Canon Face Selection and Touch & Track -- right at your fingertips. For the ultimate viewing experience, Canon's 3.5-inch High Resolution Touch Panel LCD Screen offers the added benefit of a large expansive area and a resolution of 922,000 dots, delivering exceptional detail and brilliant color.
Touch & Track
Canon's Touch & Track technology enables users to select a subject on the Touch Panel LCD that the camcorder will then recognize and track. This sophisticated technology recognizes faces, objects, even animals, ensuring that your subject will always be in focus and properly exposed.
Dynamic Super-Range Optical Image Stabilizer
Canon's Super-Range Optical Image Stabilizer helps deliver smooth, steady video, even at longer focal lengths. The system uses two detection methods (gyro and vector) to sense the widest range of vibrations from hand-held shake, to vibration from a moving vehicle. By using optical stabilization, it can compensate for a greater degree of camera shake and avoid any loss in image quality, unlike electronic image stabilizers. It is even effective for both video and photos. Dynamic SuperRange Optical Image Stabilizer takes shake correction to a whole new level. It provides continuous adjustment throughout the entire zoom range to correct an even broader range of motion. Extra compensation is applied at wide-angle focal lengths to eliminate unwanted vibration common with walking.
Powered IS
In addition to Canon's Dynamic SuperRange Optical Image Stabilization, Powered IS provides an even higher level of compensation for subtle hand movement at the telephoto end of the zoom range. This enhancement can be engaged by pressing the Powered IS button on the LCD panel.
Intelligent IS
Intelligent IS makes it easy to shoot clear, sharply focused video, even in situations that typically cause camera shake. The Intelligent IS system analyzes the shooting situation for you, then automatically switches to the image stabilization method best able to produce sharp, steady video. Four IS systems cover the gamut of shooting situations. Dynamic IS corrects minor movement and the shaking caused by walking while shooting. Macro IS delivers perfectly steady close-up shots. Powered IS comes into play when you're using the camcorder's powerful zoom, correcting shake that can occur in telephoto shots. Tripod Mode stops IS when the camcorder is stationary.
Variable Zoom Speed Control
The flagship model in the lineup, the HF G20 camcorder includes selectable zooming speed.
Canon HF G20

  • Vivid: Accentuates primary colors for a bright, cheerful look.
  • Dream: Adds a magical look (soft focus) for dream-like scenes.
  • Memory: Produces a faded, misty look, such as for flashback scenes.
Genuine Canon Face Detection
The same high quality Face Detection technology used in Canon digital cameras is now available in Canon High Definition camcorders. Up to 35 faces can be detected automatically, and 9 detection frames can be displayed at one time. Genuine Canon Face Detection ensures razor-sharp focus and natural, accurate exposure of the chosen subjects. The system is so intelligent it will recognize faces that are turned downwards or sideways. In addition, a specific face may be selected as the main subject for continuous tracking. This feature can be used to search for clips featuring that specific subject's face. In search and playback, use of the Face Index will display frames with the chosen face as a thumbnail in each shot in which it appears. The selected face can be linked as a time line to further identify footage containing that subject.
SD / SDHC / SDXC Memory Card Compatible
The Canon VIXIA HF G20 camcorder is compatible with SDXC memory cards, the newest version of the ultra-compact Secure Digital card, delivering super-high capacity storage and ultra-fast data transfer speeds. Unlike the previous SDHC standard, which has storage capacity ranging from 4GB to 32GB, SDXC increases storage capacity from more than 32GB up to 2TB.
Story Creator
Story Creator assists you in the process of producing an organized video with a logical storyline. Choose one of five different themes -- Travel, Kids & Pets, Party, Ceremony and Blog -- and the camcorder provides a list of suggested scenes to shoot. Each theme has more than 20 scene suggestions. After you've captured your footage, Story Creator helps you categorize and rate your scenes, making it easy to review, select and play back your favorites.
Touch Decoration
Use the Touch Panel LCD while shooting to activate Touch Decoration, a novel feature that lets you superimpose and record a variety of fun and exciting images along with your video. Animations (e.g., shooting stars, thought bubbles, etc.), stamps, decorative frames and even freehand drawings (using the supplied stylus) can be added to give your videos a fun and creative flair.
Mini Advanced Accessory Shoe Terminal
An Advanced Accessory Shoe lets you attach optional accessories such as a video light or directional microphone, without additional wires or batteries.
Smart Auto
The Smart Auto mode makes shooting great video even easier by utilizing Canon's DIGIC DV III Image Processor to intelligently detect and analyze brightness, color, distance and movement and automatically select the best setting for the scene being recorded. Smart AUTO lets you capture clear, bright, well-focused video while the camcorder takes care of all the details. The system recognizes 38 shooting situations based on numerous factors, then automatically chooses the optimal settings for the situation.
Advanced Video Snapshot Mode
Advanced Video Snapshot Mode allows you to create a series of movie clips, in both recording and playback modes, and add music to create the perfect highlight movie. Advanced Video Snapshot mode has been upgraded to provide the flexibility of capturing 2, 4, or 8 second video clips while recording or during playback.
Convenient HDMI Terminal
The HF G20 allows easy connection to today's latest HD televisions through its HDMI Terminal. Only one cable is needed to output a pure digital signal (video and audio) for the ultimate viewing experience.
Instant AF
Since achieving sharp focus is critical when shooting in High Definition, the HF G20 features Canon's revolutionary Instant AF focusing system. It offers a dramatic improvement in auto focus speed and accuracy (compared to traditional autofocus systems). Instant AF uses an external sensor, in combination with Canon's autofocus system, to help significantly decrease the time it takes to find focus. It is especially effective when shooting at night, in high-brightness conditions or when following a moving subject.
EVF Electronic Viewfinder
The color electronic viewfinder enables accurate framing even in bright sunlight.
Advanced Auto Exposure System Including Aperture and Shutter Priority Modes
Like any good digital still camera, the HF G20 lets you choose from a range of exposure modes. Auto mode automatically sets the exposure, letting you concentrate on your subject. AV (aperture priority) mode lets you control depth of field by letting you choose the aperture. TV (shutter priority) mode lets you select the shutter speed for sharp, action shots. In P (program) mode, the camcorder adjusts camera settings automatically. Night Scene Mode reduces noise and prevents overexposure of building and street lighting for accurate image reproduction at night.
5.1-Channel Surround Sound With Optional Canon SM-V1 Microphone
For the ultimate home theater experience, 5.1-Channel Surround Sound allows you to capture audio quality that matches the stunning realism of your high definition video. Since sound is captured from all directions through five different pickup sensors, your home movies will look and sound more lifelike than ever before.
Tele Macro
With Tele Macro, the camcorder automatically zooms the lens to full telephoto and changes the closest focusing to 1.3 feet -- the ideal setting for ultra-close-up shooting. Conventional camcorders set the minimum focusing distance to approximately three feet at the telephoto end of the zoom range, making it difficult to use the lens's full magnification power. You can use Tele Macro to capture spectacular close-ups with shallow depth-of-field.
Professional Shooting Assist Functions
Professional Shooting Assist Functions provide an exceptional level of control. Enhanced Zebra Pattern (70%, 100%) indicates blown out or high brightness areas to help you set the proper exposure. Color Peaking displays the edges of your subject in color (red, blue, yellow) - to aid in manual focusing. Custom Key and Dial allows functions including exposure, focusing, assist functions, mic volume level or AGC limits to be assigned to a custom key and the settings to be adjusted with a control dial. Color bars, white balance control and selectable zoom speed provide an exceptional level of control.
Level and Grid Markers
Level, well-composed shots are simple with the Level and Grid Marker features. Line up the horizon or other horizontal lines with the Level Marker in the viewfinder for level landscapes. Or, use the Grid Marker to help compose the perfect shot. Both markers can be set to white or grey for enhanced visibility, no matter what the background.
Focus Assist
To further enhance focusing capability the VIXIA HF G20 also features Focus Assist. It includes enlargement, which helps in capturing your subject in razor-sharp focus. It works by providing a 2x magnification of your subject, which is automatically cancelled when you start recording. This is a feature normally found in professional broadcast-quality cameras. With Canon's Edge Monitor Focus Assist system, a green monitor is shown at the bottom of the LCD Display. The green waveform shows overall focus of the image, and the height raises to indicate the area in focus. Through this dynamic focus feedback, you can intuitively tune focus in a scene and quickly change the zone of focus. Typically only found on expensive external units, the VIXIA HF G20 has a waveform monitor built right into the camera. The waveform monitor shows a detailed view of overall image brightness.
USB 2.0 High Speed
USB 2.0 Hi-Speed provides a direct connection to computers for fast transfer of video and still images. You can even use the camcorder as an external DVD burner for making duplicates of home movies.
Intelligent Lithium-ion Battery
The Intelligent Lithium-ion battery which powers the HF G20 is a major, and useful, advance. It not only more accurately tracks remaining battery life, it also gives a display in minutes remaining. It will allow you to better plan your shooting, so you won't be caught out with a battery that suddenly goes from 'half' to 'empty'.
Wireless Remote Control Included
Wireless Remote Control lets you operate your camcorder from a distance, so you don't have to be left out of the picture.
Microphone Terminal With Manual Audio Level Control
With the HF G20's Microphone Terminal you can attach an external microphone if you need to record audio more accurately from a specific source. To make your videos sound as good as they look, the VIXIA HF G20 offers a built-in audio meter and manual audio level adjustment. You'll be able to tell at a glance if the sound you're hearing is being recorded the way you want it and a simple control allows you to change the audio level if it's not.
Headphone Terminal
Pro-style Lens Hood and Eye Cup
The VIXIA HF G20 camcorder comes standard with a large lens hood that shuts out unwanted flare from external light sources, and incorporates a lens barrier that eliminates the need for a lens cap. The hood can be attached even when using a Canon filter. The large, comfortable eye cup is the same as that used on Canon's XA 10 professional model, and is designed to improve visibility by blocking out extra light.
Pre-Rec
The Pre-Record feature places your VIXIA HF G20 camcorder in a stand-by "pre-roll" mode. With this feature the camcorder continuously records three seconds of video to memory before you even press the record button. When you start recording, the additional video is recorded too. It will be easier than ever to capture the moment when the bat hits the ball at the start of that home run.
Quick Start
The Quick Start function on the VIXIA HF G20 gets you up and shooting whenever a great scene happens. Simply open the LCD panel and the camcorder powers on.
Built-in Electronic Lens Cover
The built-in lens cover means you never have to go looking for your lens cover again. Plus, you don't have the bother of your lens cap dangling from your camcorder. Turn your camcorder on and the lens cover automatically opens. Turn it off, and the cover closes.
