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: Canon HG10 AVCHD High Definition Camcorder with Optical Image Stabilizer
This light and easy to carry camcorder is amazing, and the price was unbeatable! The images are sharp and clean, and it's very easy to use, with very little help from the directions (which I keep handy in case I get stuck, because I'm constantly finding new things it will do - things I wouldn't miss if Canon hadn't thought of them, but which I'm really happy to discover.
Summary: It was August 10th, 2008 when this camera's price got lowered $100-$150. I had to jump on that deal asap, and I haven't looked back since. The quality is everything you would deam of, and the sound, despite what some reviews say, is great. There are some things to consider before buying though. The battery that it comes with will only last around 2hours...(Maybe a little more if you lower the quality).. Also, the packaged software doesn't have a lot of editing options.
