Summary: I've been using a Canon Camcorder HV10 3.1MP High Definition Mini Camcorder for years. I took it to Europe last summer on a transatlantic voyage on the Queen Mary 2. We drove around Germany and Austria with it and sailed back to the States, then traveled back across the country by car. I always had an extra charged battery in my purse. It took care of all my needs, and the battery capacity is such that I rarely needed a spare.
Summary: In 2012, there are a lot of other, better choices vs. a used 2006 HV10 due to the availability of 20+mbps AVCHD/H.264 camcorders on the market. However, it is one of the most compact HDV camcorders ever made should you need to record HD to tape. 1) A decent 1st generation, HDV, consumer-level camcorder for the size and feature set. Just enough manual A/S/Exposure controls along with Zebras and MF to make this useful. Also has video light and photo flash built-in.
Great camcorder, even though the technology is 6 years old. I love it.

Summary: This camera hasn't been manufactured for several years, but, I owned one up until 3 years ago, sold it, then purchased a Canon HDD HG10 camcorder. I liked it. I sold it. I bought 2 HV10's!--- used. I love the format. There isn't another camcorder around that is as easy to hold and operate. The picture quality is amazing. It takes great stills, has a built in flash and video light. I will probably buy a newer FlashMemory camcorder, but I will keep my HV10's.
Summary: Bought as a gift for Christmas, haven't heard any complaints. You are pretty picky about how many characters a person has to use in their review. That was all I had to say about it since I did not purchase it for myself.
Summary: I have had this thing for 4 years and it still works very well. The camera works wonderful in low light, and gives a great great picture! The compact size is very nice as well. Canon has great quality in their products.
Summary: I've owned this camera for some time now and have found it to be an outstanding camera in every way. I have not written a review on it until now. Yesterday I fell into a stream in the Great Smokey Mountains while filming grandchildren. Need I say I thought it was "history" for the camera. To make a long story short, in between a few emails to Canon's very good custmer support, I found a way to return the camera for possible repair when I returned home.
Summary: I choose this product because I owned one but not hi-def. yet and was stollen but i still have some accessories of canon brand.What can I say with this was owesome simlpy magnificent bright colors that you can see through the LCD screen even in a bright day light.
