Video Performance* (10.75)*
The Canon HG20 follows in the tradition of all recent Canon HD camcorders: really excellent video performance. It features a 1/3.2-inch CMOS sensor with a gross pixel count of the 3,310,000 (and an effective pixel count of 2,070,000). This is identical to the internals of sister model, the Canon HF11.
At 3000 lux, the Canon Vixia HG20 looks as good as its comrade, the Canon HF11 – that is to say, the video looks great.
