Summary: The HG10 provides great video quality and a set of excellent features. But it has a few issues that let the side down and certainly, you should get your hand on one of these to try before you buy after all, stubby fingers might not be an issue for you!
Pros: Compact size, Video quality, Price, Fast AF system, Easy to use.
Cons: Fiddly four-way jog button on LCD, Some handling foibles, Audio issues, Small EVF, Lacks manual focus control.
Excerpt: There are high definition camcorders and there are HIGH DEFINITION camcorders. The difference? The former thinks it's done its bit simply by shooting at HD resolution, without giving the sharpness level and the overall picture quality that should come with it.
Summary: A great all-round camera, the HG10 is streamlined towards delivering high quality video in ideal conditions. The lack of manual controls may frustrate advanced users, however most will find it to be an excellent camcorder.
Pros: Great image quality, easy to use, customisable recording qualities
Cons: Lack of manual controls, slightly lowered performance in low light settings
Excerpt: This model was reviewed as part of our group test of HD camcorders . At first glance, the HG10 might look rather out-of-place in this line-up. Costing a fraction of any other model in our group test, the HG10 looks like a purely consumer-oriented model.
Pros: Low cost. Professional features. Small. Light. Impressive video quality for price.
Cons: Noticeable compression artefacts. Poor support from Adobe’s applications.
