Canon HV30 Reviews
LaptopMag reviews the Canon HV30 and writes:
“The LCD is easy to read in bright sunlight, and there’s an option to push the brightness way up if needed, at the expense of about 10 minutes of battery life. And unlike the other cameras in this roundup, the HDMI port on the HV30 accepts a full-size HDMI connector, so you can easily connect the camera to your home display with cables you’re already using. ”

CNET reviews the Canon HV30 and writes:
“The good: Generally excellent video quality; solid feature set for its class; well designed. The bad: Tape housing feels a little flimsy; fixed eye-level viewfinder needs a better eye cup; manual focus dial a bit loose. The bottom line: An extremely minor upgrade from the HV20, the Canon Vixia HV30 remains a quality HDV camcorder with a couple of performance issues. ”
CamcorderInfo reviews the Canon HV30 and writes:
“the 30P mode simply looks great. It has all the aesthetic benefits of 24P motion without quite as much blurring. It also increases sensitivity in low light compared to 1080/60i recording. Smaller upgrades include an improved zoom toggle and a glossy black finish. The new and improved LCD is not larger or of a higher resolution, but viewing the image from angles is easier and the colors appear stronger. ”
