Review: Canon VIXIA HF G10

 

There are full-manual controls, a wide range of cinematic filters, and excellent low-light, feature-worthy performance. But it's spendy.

Full manual control will let adventurous filmmakers tweak their footage for a professional look. Cinema mode offers nine cinematic filters producing a range of styles. 32GB internal flash drive and two SDXC-compatible card slots give you mucho room to...

Beguiling menu system will drive you batty. Bigger and heavier than a typical consumer camcorder. One of the most expensive consumer camcorders on the market

Canon PowerShot G10 IS Point-and-Shoot Review

 

Appealing design for prosumers and pros ; RAW mode

Can be slow to focus ; Spotty ISO performance at 400 and up

The G10 is a fun and stylish camera, but its soft focus and low-light performance are disappointing.

Canon PowerShot G10

 

The G10 is the third incarnation of Canon's flagship 'prosumer' compact since the G series was reinvented with the G7 in 2006. Announced two years after the G6, the G7 caused quite a buzz; partly because everyone had presumed the budget SLR had killed...

At base ISO and in high contrast conditions, this is the highest resolving compact we have ever tested; Capable of very good results at lower ISO settings (Below ISO 400), and very usable for standard sized prints (noise and NR effects are visible on...

Rather slow lens (in terms of aperture) by traditional G series standards; No articulated LCD (another traditional G series feature); Price is very high considering other cameras in its class and low end DSLRs; Some noise visible even at ISO 80, Noise...

Canon has taken a camera which we liked, and added more megapixels, more external controls, a wider angle lens, a higher capacity battery and a better hand grip.

Canon PowerShot G10

Functional and fun shooting design; great enthusiast-oriented feature set; very nice photo quality

Should be a little faster shot to shot.

The Canon PowerShot G10 is a solid enthusiast digital camera for those who want something compact to complement a dSLR.

The Canon PowerShot G10 was introduced worldwide in September 2008, around the time of the Photokina Show. The Canon G10 is the latest model of Canon's successful G-series cameras. The Canon PowerShot G camera is always prone to attract the attention...

The Canon PowerShot G10 is a sibling of a long range of quality cameras. Or at least that is the overall conclusion from the test. In fact, the PowerShot G camera's concept is enough for awhile although new functions are added to every new generation...

The Powershot G10 is the latest version of Canon's most capable, serious and expensive compact camera. The G10 has a wealth of features that will appeal to the DSLR owner looking for a backup compact, or the enthusiast who wants DSLR functionality...

Sadly, the same sentiments can't be made about the new 14.7 megapixel, 1/1.7 inch, CCD image sensor. Although this offers massive 4416 pixel wide/high images that can easily be printed up to A3 size and beyond, or to make severe crops, it comes at the...

Canon PowerShot G10 Digital Camera - First Shots - The Imaging Resource!

 

Canon's PowerShot G10 digital camera is a direct successor to the company's previous PowerShot G9 model, and at a quick glance the cameras are pretty similar externally. The Canon G10 has grown just a little larger than the G9 in all directions though,...

The ISO sensitivity range offered by the Canon G10 is unchanged from the previous camera, with a minimum of ISO 100 through to a maximum of ISO 1,600 (and ISO 3,200 possible in a special high sensitivity scene mode). Available PowerShot G10 shutter...
