Great Camcorder, Size Is perfect, Easy to Use, Super Picture
9 September 2012
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.
Pros: Great video quality, microphone included with camcorder not bad at all, Cinema mode, Hard-drive camcorder, Full-sized accessory shoe, cute camcorder, great zoom, user friendly, yes it's big but it's cool like that!
Cons: Wind filter good but not great, Interior video quality might be not as good as filming outside (I don't know why) but this is quickly fixed with the cinema mode.
Summary: I have had the product only for one month and HD just blows my mind away. I have. an old jvc SD camera and when I compare it with the video that we get with the canon it is so amazing. I haven't had the opportunity to compare this camera with other HD cameras since so few people have it. The ease of use of the wheel based control leaves something to be desired but once you get used to it, it is a hoot to play around with it.
Pros: Comfortable to Operate, Durable, Great Features, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound
Summary: This camcorder has everything you will need and can record for long enough. Up to 6 hours in HDD and around 20 hours in the lowest setting. HD quality is excellent and the image stabilization is also very good (I always recommend a tripod just the same for professional stuff). Don't waste your time like I did killing yourself over 10 camcorders. Save more and get the extended warranty, battery, bag and hdmi cable like I did.
Pros: Comfortable to Operate, Durable, Great Features, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound, Same Features, Simple Controls, Versatile
Summary: To work with this camera in Final Cut Pro 6, it is just as easy, if not easier than capturing with a Firewire MiniDV cam. In play mode and the power connected, connect your HG10 to the Mac via USB. In your project, select the Log and Transfer option, select preferences, and select Apple intermidiate codec under AVCHD. Make sure your scratch disk is set, and drag and drop the desired clips into the queue where it reads "Drag media here.
