Canon HR10 review: Canon HR10

 

Canon HR10

Nice video and decent photo quality; manual exposure controls; 24p support; full-size HDMI connector.

DVD initialization and finalizing operations are slow; relatively short battery life; can't charge while camcorder is powered on.

Though the Canon HR10 is a decent camcorder, there are better choices for the same money because format performance and compatibility issues make it hard to recommend a DVD-based AVCHD model.

Canon HR10 Camcorder Review

Canon comes close to perfection this year when it comes to video quality in its consumer high definition camcorders. Every media category in which they have a product - tape, DVD, and hard disk drive - its camcorders offer the best-looking image. That...

Easy menu navigation. Good color and image detail.

The Canon HR10 is a slick-looking camera that can shoot impressive HD images. The limited record times may be too much of a setback for most.

Canon HR10

 

Canon is out with the HR10 ($1,199 MSRP), virtually identical to the HG10, but recording to DVD. Will Canon make it a trifecta, or will the frustrations of the DVD medium upset the applecart?

Object of Desire: Canon HR10 HD Camcorder

 

Canon hopes its tortoise of a high-definition camcorder, which also captures 3.1-megapixel stills, can beat out the competition's hares.

Now all you need to do is cough up a couple extra grand for an HDTV and a Blu-ray disc player, and you'll be able to screen your own high-definition movies at home. Pass the popcorn

Expert Review

 

The Canon HR10 is a decent enough DVD camera, offering impressive high-def visuals at a relatively affordable price. However, there are several competing models on the market which offer a superior performance.

Good quality video, extensive range of manual options, HDMI capable

Mini-SD card slot prohibits recording options, viewfinder poorly placed, a bit on the chunky side

Canon HR10 DVD Camcorder

 

The HR10 brings DVD-based recording to Canon's camcorder line-up. Does it perform as well as we've come to expect?

Canon HR10 review

 

Keen pricing plus stunning pictures equals top marks

Strong pictures ; Impressive sound ; Good array of features ; Solid build-quality

Optical image stabiliser not very effective ; Awkward fixed viewfinder ; Sluggish close-up focusing

While this is not the best HD camcorder ever tested, we’ve yet to see one deliver a better performance for the price

Though the Canon HR10 is a decent camcorder, there are better choices for the same money because format performance and compatibility issues make it hard to recommend a DVD-based AVCHD model.

Nice video and decent photo quality ; Manual exposure controls ; 24p support ; Full-size HDMI connector

DVD initialisation and finalising operations are slow ; Relatively short battery life ; Can't charge while camcorder is powered on

If it weren't for the DVD/AVCHD double whammy, the HR10 might have more to recommend it. For now your best bet is to stick with one of Canon or Sony's tape-based HDV models, or at least avoid the DVD issue and opt for one of the hard-drive-based options.
