Excerpt: My eye has been on the Canon HF10 for months. I 've read everything there is about it and driven my local Best Buy sales people nuts trying it out. My biggest problem was the cool $1,000 price tag. I just found out Best Buy is selling it for $800 at the Black Friday Sale.

Excerpt: The Canon HF10 ($1,099) is an ultra compact camcorder that captures HD video in the AVCHD H.264 video file format. What makes the camcorder unique is the dual storage capabilities built into the camera.
Excerpt: If you’re thinking hi-def (and how could you not be?), the HF10 merits serious cogitation. Compact and quick-focusing, it produces AVCHD 1920 x 1080 video with effective stability and awesome crispness.
Pros: Dual-positioned controls on body and LCD are perfect for all shooting situations. With four zoom speeds (one of them variable), wide-angle and telephoto buttons on the superbright and sharp LCD provide excellent modulation.
Cons: Recording time on standard battery is pretty much a disappointment. Gawky toggle on the camcorder body makes zooming in and out a drag.
Excerpt: Canon’s HF10 is a high-definition camcorder with a 16GB internal flash drive, plus an SD card slot. In our testing, the HF10 shot impressive, brilliant video, up to par with its similar MiniDV counterpart, Canon’s HV30.
Pros: Small, light an easy to use; good picture quality in well-lit and low-light conditions.
