Canon Vixia HF10

 

The Canon Vixia HF10 ($1000 as of September 28, 2008) has a lot going for it. It's light and compact, it generates fine images without much effort, it offers good control over look and frame rate, it carries a reasonable price, and it works well with...

Compact size ; Good video quality, optical zoom, and stabilizatio

LCD is the only viewfinder ; Lower bit rate than newer Vixia models have

This compact camcorder combines sharp AVCHD video, flash memory, easy and flexible operation, and a reasonable price.

Canon Vixia HF10 review: Canon Vixia HF10

 

Canon Vixia HF10

Excellent video quality; fast focus; compact, attractive, and comfortable design.

Wind filter not as dependable as previous Canon models; manual focus pretty useless.

Canon's first flash-based camcorder, the Canon Vixia HF10, delivers excellent HD video quality and performance in a tiny package.

Review: Canon Vixia HF10

 

If you're thinking hi-def (and how could you not be?), the HF10 merits serious cogitation. Compact and quick-focusing, it produces AVCHD 1920 x 1080 video...

Dual-positioned controls on body and LCD are perfect for all shooting situations. With four zoom speeds (one of them variable), wide-angle and telephoto buttons on the superbright and sharp LCD provide excellent modulation

Recording time on standard battery is pretty much a disappointment. Gawky toggle on the camcorder body makes zooming in and out a drag

Canon Vixia HF10 Camcorder Review

 

The Canon HF10 is among the most anticipated camcorders in recent years, due no doubt to the outstanding reception of its HDV predecessor, the HV20. There are several key differences, however. The CMOS chip is not the same as last year's Canon HD...

The Canon HF10 may be the AVCHD camcorder we've been waiting for. The first generation of AVCHD camcorder from Sony and Panasonic were just plain no good - lots of features but short on performance. Then Canon came along shortly after with the HR10,...

The Canon Vixia HF10 is the solid state camcorder in Canon's current high definition consumer lineup, recording to removable SDHC memory cards and a non-removable 16GB internal flash memory. The HF10 shares a similar imaging system as the HG10...

Camcorder Review: Canon Vixia HF10 Camcorder

 

No more tape? Not for Canon's new Vixia HF10. It records directly to a built-in Flash memory. As if that weren't enough, the HF10 also offers high-definition video recording at a 1920x1080 resolution

Compact size Sleek design Flash memory storage

Light, hard to hold still

The small and lightweight Canon Vixia HF10 packs enough punch with its sharp images to compete with the big boys.

Review: Canon Vixia HF10 HD camcorder

 

The HF10's impressive video quality and ease of use add up to a very good camcorder, especially given its size. If size is a consideration for you, the HF10 is the right tapeless camcorder.

The HF10 is sleek and sexy, but it feels a bit clumsy to hold. The camcorder is shaped like a cannon barrel, and you need to use your middle finger to control the zoom tab, making it difficult to maintain a firm, steady grip on the camcorder. You...

Canon HF10

 

Canon HF10 carries with it high expectations based on the outstanding performance of its 2007 predecessors, such as the HV20 and HG10. Canon redesigned the imaging chip this time around, making it smaller and more densely packed with pixels (1/3.2...

In bright light performance, the HF10 is nearly indistinguishable from the award-winning HV20, and the resolution score actually improves. Canon finally managed to craft an AVCHD camcorder that does not produce objectionable amounts of compression...
