Canon Legria HF G10 review

 

The HF G10 is Canon's top-of-the-range camcorder, and the most expensive we've seen of this year's crop. It takes a different approach to capturing digital video to Panasonic's high-end HDC-SD900 - instead of separate 1/4.1in sensors for red, green and...

A beautifully made high-end camcorder, but we don’t think its image quality matches its price.

Despite its high price, the Canon LEGRIA HF G10 is a great camcorder for amateur movie makers and camcorder aficionados. Its performance is fantastic with little to no sign of grain or noise in bright and low light conditions. It is also easy to use....

Review: Canon VIXIA HF G10

 

There are full-manual controls, a wide range of cinematic filters, and excellent low-light, feature-worthy performance. But it's spendy.

Full manual control will let adventurous filmmakers tweak their footage for a professional look. Cinema mode offers nine cinematic filters producing a range of styles. 32GB internal flash drive and two SDXC-compatible card slots give you mucho room to...

Beguiling menu system will drive you batty. Bigger and heavier than a typical consumer camcorder. One of the most expensive consumer camcorders on the market

Canon Vixia HF G10 (Black) review:

 

With a street price well above $1,000, the Canon Vixia HF G10 needs to deliver a lot more than just its extensive manual feature set--especially since Canon is creating a potentially confusing lineup by putting its HD CMOS Pro sensor in this model,...

The Canon Vixia HF G10 delivers great video quality and a lot of useful features for advanced shooters.

Design issues that affect frequently used adjustments may annoy the very people the camcorder is designed to attract, and for the money it should ship with a double-capacity battery.

While it's got a great shooter feature set and good video quality, the Canon Vixia HF G10 still feels a bit expensive for what it offers.

Canon Legria HF G10

 

Provided you've got a wallet padded enough to take the blow, the Canon Legria HF G10 is an excellent high-end camcorder with a wealth of features.

Excellent touchscreen ; Excellent low-light performance ; Well-built, very sturdy ; HDMI cable provided in the box

Confusing in-camera editing options ; Rather expensive ; Battery drains a little too quickly

Provided you've got a wallet padded enough to take the blow, the Canon Legria HF G10 is an excellent high-end camcorder with a wealth of features. A few usability quirks here and there, as well as a frustrating in-camera editing experience, stops us...
