CANON VIXIA HG21 MANUAL PDF

January 1, Load Up Your Canon! Prosumers rejoice: the HG21 is the perfect fit for family events, weddings and entry-level professional videography. How Does It Look? Not only that, it offers up to 45 hours and 15 minutes of recording time in LP mode! The 12x HD lens offers breathtaking video that we found looked great even when zooming in from far distances. We liked that Canon offered three different levels of zoom control, to ensure clean-looking movement.

And for such a small camera, it produces great video image quality. The camcorder supports 1,by-1, resolution at 24p Cinema Mode 24 frames per second , 30p Progressive Mode 30 fps , and, of course, i-though I suggest that you stick with progressive modes.

The p in 24p and 30p means that the camera uses progressive scan video, where video is drawn from top to bottom in one pass. Many camcorders, instead of progressive scan, use interlaced frames the i in i , where each video frame is displayed in alternate fields and horizontal lines are displayed from top to bottom.

Interlaced video can look jaggy on a computer screen; look for progressive scan modes if you want to enjoy good-looking full resolution images on a computer screen. Canon has generally stayed ahead of the pack when it comes to offering progressive scan support. If you want the 24p look, you need a video editing program like Final Cut Pro Macworld rated 4.

If you simply want to shoot using progressive scan video and I suggest you do , you can use 30p with iMovie. One feature that Canon promotes with the HG21 and rightly so is its support of a 24Mbps bit rate. Why should you care about the bit rate?

The imaging sensor in this camcorder captures data at nearly 1Gbps. To get that data squeezed onto the little hard drive in the camera, the video needs to be compressed. Because it has a GB hard drive to store footage, the HG21 is a little heavier than consumer HD camcorders that use only flash memory cards. You can store over 11 hours of video at the highest quality setting. The HG21 also has an SD card slot.

This turns out to be more useful that it seems on the surface. There are really three menu systems, all driven from the LCD screen which I initially found frustrating, though it grew on me.

Navigation is all done with a small joystick, and it can take a little time for someone to develop the subtle touch required to pilot the interface.

This represents a painful step backward for the interface and makes it impossible to fine-tune the most important controls in real-life situations. This mars an otherwise near-flawless interface implementation.

The HG21 includes a mike jack, which is imperative for anyone planning to use the camera for more than home movies. Canon also includes a component out port for a much higher quality video connection than the AV jack. I really wish camera manufacturers would standardize the shoe.

Without an open standard, this little feature remains a little feature. It could be a conduit to a world of cool add-ons. The overall video image quality is very high, and the features and usability are there. If Canon could include the more advanced manual controls from past camcorders, the Vixia HG21 would be a home run. Alex has been involved in computer graphics work for nearly 20 years.

In theory a faster bit rate means better video. The front is dominated by a 12x optical zoom that translates to Also on the front is a flash for improved still quality, the Instant AF sensor and a stereo mic, not Dolby 5. The right side houses the GB hard drive and small logos attest to this fact.
