The Canon HR10 is a decent enough DVD camera, offering impressive high-def visuals at a relatively affordable price. However, there are several competing models on the market which offer a superior performance.

Good quality video, extensive range of manual options, HDMI capable

Mini-SD card slot prohibits recording options, viewfinder poorly placed, a bit on the chunky side

Canon HR10

 

Though the Canon HR10 is a decent camcorder, there are better choices for the same money because format performance and compatibility issues make it hard to recommend a DVD-based AVCHD model.

Nice video and decent photo quality ; Manual exposure controls ; 24p support ; Full-size HDMI connector

DVD initialisation and finalising operations are slow ; Relatively short battery life ; Can't charge while camcorder is powered on

If it weren't for the DVD/AVCHD double whammy, the HR10 might have more to recommend it. For now your best bet is to stick with one of Canon or Sony's tape-based HDV models, or at least avoid the DVD issue and opt for one of the hard-drive-based options.

I have used this camera in a wide variety of travels. Images can be breathtaking if you plan ahead. Don't pan too quickly, keep an extra battery with you, keep the quick-start turned on and realize that it is a low-end HD camera; you won't be...

great image for the now $300 USD price
