LAS VEGAS--The excellent Canon Vixia HF G10 gets a modest -- some might say disappointing -- upgrade for 2013. The most notable change is the price; the G20 will cost $1,099.99, a couple hundred lower than the current retail price.

On the upside, the camcorder incorporates a new version of the HD CMOS sensor, which Canon claims offers a better dynamic range. That's good, of course, but surprisingly it doesn't offer the increased bit rates or frame rates as the lower-end models . Instead, it gets prerecord capabilities, an improved eye cup for the EVF, and a new lens hood.

The G20 is scheduled to ship in February.
