I don't use it as much as I should

Krystina Long, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a beautiful camera with a lot of good features and a very true-to-life color palette. I suggest getting good video editing software with it.

The Best

Wess S., Amazon
30 May 2011
  • Summary: Well its my first video camera. I'm so happy. Full HD got some accessories the same time I bought this camera. the memory lasts around 45mins, although if you change the settings the time will be lengthened. I've waited for so long to purchase one glad I did. Paid TT$1800(US$279). I priced one at a few of our local electronic stores and they don't compare cause I was getting a a SD video camera with that relied on external cards or tapes for about TT$5000(US$775).

Great camera but needs external mic.

Reed, Amazon
5 April 2011
  • Summary: This camera is just great in all aspects but one. The on board mic picks up a clicking from the auto focus. I have read some reviews that say it only picks it up in quiet situations. I would say it picks it up all the time. Luckily I planned on using an external mic with this camera. This is one of the few cameras to offer an external stereo mic jack in it's price range.

"Way to go Canon!"

UNC85, CNET
10 March 2011
  • Pros: Great zoom, clean video, many settings can be set to manual to give you flexibiliy. Easy to learn, transfers very easily. Overall, I am pleased with this camcorder, especially for the price!
  • Cons: Not great in low light. No real wide angle. Definitely a clicking "old film projector" sound that is annoying. The sound isn't there when zooming which is kind of bizarre.

Good Small Camcorder

John H. Lester "jlester343", Amazon
28 February 2011
  • Summary: I am retired and just sold a Canon GL2 prosumer video camera. I wanted something HD to throw in a drawer and use when I wanted something better than my P&S camera video. The price was the selling point. Lots of written complaints about the autofocus noise but unless you are playing the video with the sound up to max I don't think you won't be able to hear it. I like the lack of tape and the size.

Compact, reliable, be careful of deleting 'events'

Stanley J. Hasegawa "Movie Nut", Amazon
8 February 2011
  • Summary: I used this over my trip to HI. Pros: the video snap is handy. It takes 5 second snaps that you can stitch together to make one video. The quality of the picture is quite good--even the single photo snaps. The power button, record button are easily found. The battery and SD cards are easy to replace. Very lightweight, compact, easy to track a subject. Cons: I didn't understand that "event" means movie. If you delete all the events, you delete all your movies.

"LET'S PUT THIS CAMCORDER IN PERSPECTIVE"

stevecohan, CNET
31 December 2010
  • Pros: This isn't a $1000 camcorder. The knowlege of previous posters might be questioned. IT DOESN'T HAVE A HARD DRIVE. I have yet to find any audio noise. I use the unit for recording high speed competition. Focus, metering and color are excellent.
  • Cons: Very low light operation is marginal. There is no real wide angle.

Clicking noise can be stopped

Robert Richmond "gadget junkie", Amazon
11 September 2010
  • Summary: Several reviews of the HF10 and 100 have noted a clicking noise that is present during recordings. By changing autofocus to manual (using the joystick), the clicking can be stopped. Therefore it must be the autofocus continually trying to readjust the lens. This solution is a kludge, as is using an external microphone, but I just wanted to let everyone know.
