Straight out of the box, fantastic. What can i say, certainly takes the micky out of the old days when you needed to twick the registration of the camera tubes to get colours correct. Was very impressed in what i saw and ease of handling. Colour was tip top, focus held, contrast spot on. Am certainly chuffed with purchase. Am thinking of getting a 2nd one in near futuretook it straight out of the box and just charged the battery. As a test used it to record a beer festival in a church on october 15th with out even reading the manualthe results are here on youtube[. was edited on apple mac pro using resolve 12. 5 (free download) only one shot was adjusted. ]

A very good camera, bordering on great. This camera has been mine to play with for a day or two, now. It feels compact and sturdy. The feature set is huge (and i won’t bother listing it all, as that’s mostly covered with the product description anyway). It feels very well made, the touch screen is a lot more comfortable in practice than i feared it would be (can you tell i’m a traditionalist. ?) and the results are simply staggering. And that’s what it’s all about, in the end. The camera is not cheap, so it’s only fair to expect a lot from it. If it were priced at anything up to gbp 500, it would be five stars without a second’s thought.

I have a canon g10 which i am pleased with i neededanother camera and brought the g25 whichhas a wider angle lens ,a good lens hoodthe only thing which is not a big problem i foundwas the record button on the back is a little stiff you have to pressdown harder than the g10 apart from that a great videocamera.

An excellent semi-pro hd camcorder that captures good quality video in daylight or indoors. Although my canon powershot sx50 hs bridge camera offers ‘hi-def 1080’ video, in reality this legria camcorder’s video quality is far superior, particularly when used indoors in low light. Plus the stills camera’s video has far poorer sound, a very jerky zoom (to rapidly zoom in on a target for a photo), and it can struggle to focus as you pan the shot. This legria hf g25 camcorder is a big beast at 77x78x161 mm and 575 g, but it’s surprisingly easy to handle. Initial impressions are that all the extra video features make this canon legria camcorder quite complex to use (which it true), but in fact as there is 32gb on-board memory and the camcorder works running off the mains adapter or battery, i was taking high quality video and transferring to pc straight away without reading the quick-start guide. The supplied bp808 battery lasts 210 minutes and charges in around 2. 5 hours in camera, so i got few cheap spare duracell bp-808/powerplanet bp-807 batteries and a ‘genuine’ canon mains battery charger off of ebay for £25 that works fine. The camera body has twin slots for two sd-hc cards, and i filled them with two 16gb sandisk sdhc class 10 cards. As one memory card fills up the video will swap seamlessly to the next card when recording (plus it can create a simultaneous backup copy of the video while recording if the subject matter is really important). You can do a bit of video editing in-camera, although i use adobe premiere elements 11 on the pc as the video is easily transfered to the hard drive.

A very good but annoying camera. . I have had this camera for approximately six weeks and really know it very well by now. Living in greece i like the viewfinder which allows me to see my subject even in very bright light which is often a problem with many modern cameras. By modern standards this is a big camera with a big price. It is however an excellent camera. I have only a few little quibbles. Like most (but not all) handy cams it does not hold a correct exposure value throughout its zoom range. Either getting darker when zooming in or lighter when zooming out which then needs to be adjusted when editing. It also has some silly and in my opinion unnecessary options like the so called ‘decoration’ function. The ergonomics of the grip limit you to shooting everything from eye level.

Best christmas present ever. As a filming enthusiast who has owned many camcorders down the years, i can honestly say that this wipes the floor with the rest. Top-quality, most definitely. For most people, the most important factor is the quality of the footage. . Well, i must tell you that the results from the g25 are out of this world: crisp, vivid and stunning. You will not be disappointed. No problem: the controls are well-designed and intuitive, and the camera itself feels sold, sturdy, yet highly manageable.

It was within budget and is very easy to transport places. Being a media student and university this is a great piece of equipment to own and i am over the moon that i finally have my own decent camera. It really is an amazing piece of equipment. Don’t know how i lived without one for so long.

Its fairly heavy so when knocked off its tripod with a fall of several feet onto any stone or hard wooden floors you might expec. I am mostly interested in recording live music so i will dedicate my review to this (general stuff covered by other reviewers). I took it to india where i filmed many live music events at beach resorts. Reliability: its fairly heavy so when knocked off its tripod with a fall of several feet onto any stone or hard wooden floors you might expect the worst. Nothing it is really robust, it happened several times, my heart nearly stopping each time but nothing ever broke and continued to work flawlessly. Same when falling into sand, nothing it seemed would cause it to let you down. Several sessions i recorded found the musicians very low lit with brighter distracting lights from behind from bars & beach shops and yet the colour and results of the artists were astonishing, i swear better than i remembered it with my own eyes. Audio – very important when it comes to music and i know of no inbuilt cam mic that will deliver satisfying results when audio qulaity is important to you. You must attach a an external mic that delivers broadcasting quality audio such as the rode stereo mic range or any zoom or tascam handheld device which you can mount onto the hotshoe.

Fantastic camera, external mic support and lots of manual features are surprising at this price point. . Incredible camera, really good options – especially some of the manual ones. White balance has some nice options. The external mic port and double cards make it great for shooting out and about.

Canon legria hf g25 wide angle high definition. I find this to be an excellent camcorder, had a chance to use it over the weekend filming a local stage show, only had the lights from the stage to work with, but results were very good for my first time, i intend to get into more manual control, as on this occasion it was on auto for focus and shutter speed, manual for exposure, there are lots of other settings which i shall be investigating.

I chose this camcorder over others in this price bracket for one main reason, it can take a non-canon branded – ergo unchipped battery, so can have a much higher capacity battery for cheaper than other makes that have their batteries chipped, forcing you to buy their branded battery, at considerably higher cost, and less capacity too. Check online as to which battery you can use with this camera. There are only two downsides to this video camera for me, it doesn’t do 1080 50p – only 25p, and it doesn’t record audio uncompressed, it’s bigger brother does both, but that’s about £400 more expensive. Like with all camcorders, they seem to have gone for the fashion of no cold shoe, but there is an inexpensive adapter you can buy to change canon’s idiotic worthless hotshoe to a coldshoe allowing you to use all your old equipment like microphones and lights. Other adjustments are fairly easy to make with the touch screen, and an assignable scroll wheel and screen button makes it easier to do certain functions (some video reviews online describe more).

This camera is amazing for the price. More features then i’ve seen on a camcorder costing this little. Incredible quality picture and sound. Sound is better with external microphone. Get the duracell 827 battery for it as supplied one only lasts 90 mins.

Perfect for some less than perfect for others. . I use this camera primarily for studio work with green screen. The menu system, once learned, is simple enough for anyone used to using cameras. I wouldn’t recommend this to a new user unless they are ready for a steep learning curve as its auto features are available to much cheaper cameras and the only other option is fully manual which means you have to handle everything yourself. It does seem to have program functions but they seem just as complex as manual really and many program features actually lock away some 9f the options you might actually want to use in conjunction with them in my opinion. This camera is therefore ideal for a semi- pro. A student of videography or an enthusiast but if you’re new to manual operations and don’t want to learn, pick something in the panasonic range. I certainly wouldn’t use this for holiday videos.

Bought for general purpose to include low light; works well and gives good results. Must study the manual for advanced use.
