How good would Canon G20/G25 be for travels/family use?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

I was set to buy a Sony CX730 but it seems out of production these days. I then started looking at a G20/G25 for general use with family (we just were blessed with a newborn) and travels. Can you please advice wheter this camcorder would be good for such uses or if I'd better wait for G30 to be out.
I also have a SLT-A99 but I find it needs much preparation for filming and that doesn't fit that well with babies tongue.gif

Thanks for all your upcoming advices!

The Sony GW77 is drop resistant, waterproof and dustproof. It takes great video and decent stills. It is compact.

For baby shots, it can be left in easy reach without fear of damage. You can take it to the beach. It is small enough to pack easily for travel.

If I didn't already have more cameras than makes sense, it would be first on my list.

(I'm not sure if the European model number is the same.)

Good luck raising the child. It is a heck of an adventure for sure!
