Summary: Previously I had the Panasonic HDC-SD5PP which I was very pleased with - but it was stolen. So I bought the canon VIXIA HF-10 because of the 16GB flash drive. I should have thought more about how it felt than the amount of recording time. When you put your palm through the strap, the camera tilts to the left more than 45 degrees. Hard on your wrist. The MODE dial, it's awkward to move with one hand with the camera tilting.
