Record HD Video Directly to SDHC Memory Cards

The VIXIA HG20 is equipped to allow you to capture video to both the camcorder's internal 60GB Hard Disk Drive as well as directly to an SDHC memory card.

Video stored on the internal memory can also be copied onto the memory card which can then be inserted into your computer or HDTV's card reader slot for immediate viewing. It is also possible to transfer video and still images recorded to the SDHC card to the internal hard disk drive.

You can also use higher capacity memory cards to further increase the video storage of your VIXIA HG20.
