" The HV20 High Definition Camcorder delivers style, performance and advanced features as never before in a compact package. With a 10x HD video zoom lens, 2.96 Megapixel CMOS Image Sensor, Canon's advanced DIGIC DV II Image Processor and a stylish look, it offers capabilities above others in its class. The HV20's 24p Cinema Mode allows you to shoot in "film look" style that up until now was only available on professional camcorders. Both High Definition and Standard Definition recording modes make the HV20 the perfect bridge when you want to move to HD while retaining compatibility with SD equipment. Superior image reproduction with stunning detail and brilliant color is of course what you expect from Canon and the HV20 delivers, raising the bar for HD. "
