    Comments about Canon VIXIA HF S20 Black Dual Flash Memory Camcorder:

    I really like the camera, it takes great movies. Only issue I had is the view screen in sunlight. It was difficult to see. My remedy, I used iPhone anti-glare film (purchased at Apple store) and it fixed the problem.

    Comments about Canon VIXIA HF S20 Black Dual Flash Memory Camcorder:

    I had used this for our trip to Disney. Works great, however for newbees I would suggest experimenting with the features before you start using it.

    The default battery has a very low battery life, you need to have a spare battery.

    I still need to figure out how to edit the video using the software from Canon.
