Canon HG10 review: Canon HG10

 

Canon HG10

The Canon HG10 camcorder has excellent image stabilization and generally great video quality.

Poor audio control; smallish EVF; some annoying ergonomics; no manual focus dial.

A solid hard-drive based HD camcorder, the Canon HG10 nevertheless has its share of annoying quirks.

Canon HG10 Camcorder Review - Canon HDD Camcorders

 

The Canon HR10 is a looker, both in person and by the specs sheet. Despite the first class pedigree of the imaging system (identical to the HV20), we were still skeptical of the AVCHD codec, which has given other manufacturers problems with motion....

Camcorder Review: Canon HG10 AVCHD

 

The HG10 is Canon's first HDD AVCHD camcorder. It is small and well balanced, and it comes with a 1/2.7" CMOS sensor and a host of new features that all add up to great-looking HD video

Excellent video quality with very accurate color quality

No manual focus ring No manual audio level adjustments

A small camcorder packed with features that result in excellent HD video quality.

Canon HG10

 

The Canon HG10 is perhaps the most compelling of a new format of camcorders, called AVCHD. Simply put, AVCHD has freed high definition video from tape-based media, allowing it to be captured to DVD, hard disk drive (HDD), and flash memory - all formats...

Canon's HG10 High definition HDD camcorder

 

August 8, 2007 Canon's new HG10 Hard Disk Drive Camcorder is the latest to use the Advanced Video Codec High Definition format which was introduced by Sony and Panasonic in 2006 and offers greater compression than HDV and MiniDV. The hard disk drive...

This camera can capture still shots of 3.1 megapixels to a miniSD card and also has the ability to grab photos from recorded footage at a resolution of 1920x1080, or 2 megapixels

Expert Review

 

A great all-round camera, the HG10 is streamlined towards delivering high quality video in ideal conditions. The lack of manual controls may frustrate advanced users, however most will find it to be an excellent camcorder.

Great image quality, easy to use, customisable recording qualities

Lack of manual controls, slightly lowered performance in low light settings

Canon HG10 HDD Camcorder

 

Canon's first camcorder with a hard disk drive makes its debut. Is James Morris impressed?

Although the HG10 doesn't bowl us over quite as much as the HV20, it's still an impressive piece of kit. Sony's lower end HDR-SR5E undercuts it on price considerably, but misses out key features such as a standard-sized accessory shoe. The more fully...

Canon HG10 review

 

The HG10 is the world's smallest AVCHD camcorder with a built-in hard drive. Time to see what this 40GB beauty can do

An all-round performer that shoots great footage, but is beaten by Sony's SR7E for style and Canon's own HV20 for features
