Summary: I use this product allot. It has never let me down. Great HD footage. Works great for what I am using it for. It's so simple to use my kids know how to operate it. My brother-in-law loved using mine so much he bought one for himself.
Excerpt: Canon HG10 HDD Camcorder has some amazing functions that make me feel in awe. The features are cool and awesome and the only disadvantage would be the heavy feel to this bulky item. It is very HEAVY!
Summary: I purchased the camcorder to record my kids playing a fast action table tennis target game. This is my first time ever using a camcorder. I charged the battery and skimmed thru the instruction manual. I set the camcorder to fluorescent lighting and left everything else alone. I attached the camcorder to a tripod and turned it on and let it record for 45 minutes without touching it. The vedio looks great.
Summary: Video pictures are great almost broadcast quality. the only thing is, get good editing software. I use roxio pro 2011 99 dollars. Get the hang of it and your all set. Also get a 2400 ma batt. the batt they give you will die in a hour.
Summary: After reading many reviews of this product I decided to go ahead and pick it up. Knowing that this isn't a 'film makers' camera since the 24p mode is all but useless due to AVCHD on the fly conversion issues with this mode, I decided to purchase it anyway since it is primarily for documenting my children. First off, the picture is absolutely gorgeous. On an HD TV the picture just jumps out.
