Great Camcorder, Size Is perfect, Easy to Use, Super Picture

Excerpt: I bought his camcorder about 2 weeks ago to video my daughters Christmas Program. The camcorder has a good feel, worked great in mid to low lighting, and was super easy to use. The hard drive has plenty of space...over 5 hours on the highest quality setting....nice not to have to carry tapes around. The supplied battery only lasts a little over an hour....but that is not too substandard. That was plenty enough time for her program...
Excerpt: The HG10 is awsome for the price, The quality, size, and ease of use is simply fantastic. Videos are HD quality that can be adjusted if you are planning to film before dumping the file from the harddrive onto another storage device. Buy another battery to ensure you don't run out of power while out filming.
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.
