  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.0 stars Good
      Overall score: 6.4 (3.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 3.0 stars out of 6 reviews

  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.0 stars Good
      Overall score: 6.8 (3.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 3.5 stars out of 8 reviews

Canon Vixia HF S21 Reviewed on June 7, 2010 Check prices
Product overview
Canon Vixia HF S21
  • CNET Editor rating:
    4.0 stars Excellent
      Overall score: 8.0 (4.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 4.0 stars out of 3 reviews

The Bottom Line: Though they're an excellent trio of camcorders, the Vixia HF S21, HF S20, and HF S200 are significantly more expensive than their respective competitors, especially since the S20 and S200 lack electronic viewfinders. If you can forgo some of the subtleties of the manual controls, you can probably get what you need with a cheaper camcorder. Read review
