Canon Vixia HF S10

 

Hands down, the Canon Vixia HF S10 generates the best high-definition video and still images we've seen from a small camcorder. Add the impressively deep and professional manual controls, and you have an excellent--albeit expensive ($1300 as of...

Best-in-class video quality ; Deep and advanced manual controls

Expensive ; Mediocre battery life

The HF S10 offers sharp and vibrant video and stills, and its truly robust manual controls make it a great choice for dedicated users.

Review: Canon Vixia HF S10

 

Pure Digital's Flip has proven that it's possible to build a super-small flash memory camcorder and offer it up for fewer than two hundred bucks....

Improved audio quality. Big, bright lens. Speedy processor. Lots of creative control options. More intuitive menus than previous generation Canon camcorders

Loose lens cover noisier than cutlery caught in a garbage disposal. Still images cam come off looking a bit overexposed

Canon Vixia HF S10

Excellent video quality and performance; nicely designed interface; fast battery charging.

No eye-level viewfinder; expensive; lens cover rattles when closed.

An excellent flash-based prosumer HD camcorder, you may nevertheless pass on the Canon Vixia HF S10 because it lacks an eye-level viewfinder. And the identical--but cheaper, because it has no built-in memory--Vixia HF S100 may also be a better buy.

With excellent performance, may be the best buy Canon has to offer this holiday season

Great sharpness performance; A bevy of manual controls
