Small enough to carry anywhere, the LEGRIA FS20 lets you shoot more than 5 hours of video to 8GB of built-in flash memory. Alternatively, record straight to memory card – just perfect for sharing.

Whenever, wherever. Great movies in the palm of your hand.

Dual Flash Memory

With 8GB Dual Flash Memory, the LEGRIA FS20 offers you two ways to record. Store over 5 hours of movies to internal memory, or shoot straight to SD or SDHC memory cards for easy sharing.

Compact and light

Take your camcorder anywhere. Weighing just 230g, LEGRIA FS20 won’t ever slow you down.

Video Snapshot

Video Snapshot mode makes it incredibly easy to create movies for sharing with friends and family. Every time the Record button is pressed, a short 4 second clip is captured. Simply add your clips to a playlist, select a soundtrack, and you’re instantly ready to play your movie on a TV – with no need for editing on a PC. 4 seconds is the average length of one ‘cut’ in a TV show, helping to give your final movie an expert feel. Five rights-free tracks are pre-loaded onto the camcorder but you can also add your own music using the supplied Music Transfer Utility software.

45x Advanced Zoom

Combining the power of the DIGIC DV II processor and the quality of a genuine Canon Video Lens, the LEGRIA FS20 offers the extended reach of a 45x Advanced Zoom.

Megapixel CCD

Thanks to its Megapixel CCD, the LEGRIA FS20 delivers superior quality video images and digital photographs.

Pre REC function

In Pre REC mode, the camcorder starts recording three seconds before you even press the Record button. 3 seconds of footage are continuously stored and automatically added to the beginning of your clip from whenever you start videoing – never miss that crucial moment again.

Quick Charge

After a long day’s shooting, it only takes 20 minutes to recharge the camcorder’s battery sufficiently for a further hour’s recording.

Microphone and headphone jacks

A microphone input and headphone jack give you the ability to record better audio and closely monitor it during recording.

Dual Shot

Dual Shot sets all controls to automatic, leaving you free to frame your shots. You can shoot high quality photos during video recording, without the bother of switching between settings on the Control Dial.

PIXELA software

Supplied PIXELA™ software provides an easy way to edit and share your movies – burn a DVD, convert a movie for upload to the web, or transfer it to your personal media player. To burn a DVD at the touch of a button, opt for the DW-100 DVD Burner (available to buy separately).
