Canon Vixia HF G20 boosts sensitivity
LAS VEGAS--The excellentgets 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. 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.
