Canon HV10

 

We've been waiting a while for this, but Canon has finally entered the consumer-level high definition camcorder market with its HV10. There's only one...

Excellent picture, good still images

No HDMI out, lack of a useful computer kit, awkward button layout

A great consumer level HD camcorder with only a few letdowns

Canon HV10

 

An excellent HD video camcorder with some annoying quirks, the Canon HV10 delivers almost everything a technophile wants for making home videos.

Excellent video quality ; Compact ; Broad feature set

Some very awkward ergonomics ; Poorly located microphone ; Can't adjust white balance while shooting ; No HDMI output or accessory shoe ; Short battery life ; No bundled video software

There's so much to like about the Canon HV10 that, on balance, even the not-so-trivial ergonomic problems attain a rosier glow than I'd usually ascribe to them. If you want a compact HD camcorder for your next vacation, you don't have much of a choice...

Canon HV10

 

Great, easy to use and uses easy to store mini DV tapes.

Incredible quality video for first generation HD camcorder, portable and handy, easy to store mini DV tapes (far prefer to hard disc or DVD storage)

Lack of HDMI. Perhaps a tad unreliable (my camcorder has required 2 repairs under warranty - fortunately Canon provided fantastic after sales service)
