Dated But Still One Of The Best!

Charles Percoco "Wildcatbuff", Amazon
25 June 2012
  • Summary: I have used a ton of HD camcorders, from Panasonic,JVC Sony, Samsung but when it comes to picture quality the first Canon HD Camcorders are the best!Sure they are bulky and the DVD model is hampered by short recording times but the trade off is worth it. The first Canon's had HUGE sensors compared to today's models. I have owned the HG10 a hard drive Model, and currently have the HR10 for a second time.

Surprisingly good but a bit outdated.

Keith Dickens, Amazon
2 November 2009
  • Summary: Actually, it probably is outdated. The DVD format is not the most efficient way to go. But the quality of the shots I've gotten with this camera are awesome for the price I paid. I'm willing at this point to get the quality and do a little extra work in the post-production phase to convert the video. It took a bit a bit to figure out the best way to get the video, in either SD or HD format off the disks and onto our editing machine.

Great Camcorder

EP "EP", Amazon
31 December 2008
  • Summary: I've had this camera for a few months now and so far no problems. There have been many events captured in HD - recitals, ball games, birthdays, etc. I have been able to use cheap DVD's (available here at Amazon). It records in HD. Recorded media (8cm. DVD-R's) is encoded in AVCHD and can be played directly using a bluray player.

cheaper still

malcolm chun "urban hunter", Amazon

  • Summary: i guess i got the best bargain at costco today for $330 period - thought i might have to return it as they didnt let me look at from the glass case - but with their return policy i got anyway - and reading all the 2007 reviews i guess i got a great buy during this horrible down turn - maybe i can record how the next great depression will be instead of listening to stories of my dad's ten cent a loaf of bread

Nice product

M. Kurapati "Ram", Amazon
24 April 2008
  • Summary: I got this at a cheaper price, but the quality is worth the price. It has features, that most other camcoders doesn't have. It uses a codec format, that stores HD media on non-HD media (like DVDs). Very Nice.

Does not work with Blu-ray

Cross LInk, Amazon
3 December 2007
  • Summary: I bought this camera because I thought it would be easy to record great HD images and play them back on my Blu-ray player quickly. Problem is this camera will not record on the new 8cm blu ray media. This means it will only record for 23 mins with the largest disc available in HD mode. I would suggest the hard drive format until they get this availability.

Excellent picture quality

D. Watts, Amazon
25 April 2014
  • Summary: The camera is easy to use and produces top quality pictures. I would not choose a disc recording system again although it works brilliantly but would go for a solid state chip system.

HR10 - Well rounded product

Rajesh Mistry "Raj", Amazon
20 July 2009
  • Summary: This cam does what it says. Pro's: can record onto mini-disc, compact full of the features you would expect from Canon. Con's: not perticularly fond of the AVCHD format as my DVD does not play this and converters of this format are few and far between. Other then that its a solid well build product.

IDEAL CAMCORDER

Mrs. C. Colbourne, Amazon
15 July 2009
  • Summary: I found the Cannon HR10 HD DVD Camcorder easy to use, so this would be good if buying a Camcorder for the first time. The 2.7" screen is so clear and the zoom is great for getting close to your subject. The only problem I came across was when I went to take a still photo there was no Mini SD Card in with the Camcorder, so I couldn't test this. I went to a camera shop on holiday and they sold me an ordinary SD Card which wouldn't fit in the Camcorder.
