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.
