The Canon HG10 High Definition Camcorder is the first Canon camcorder to record on a hard disk drive. The Camcorder Info people reviewed all the features starting with the glass lens with the 10x optical zoom. Next, the grip is comfortable when you actually hold it in your hands, and it features zoom control which is “pro grade”. They don’t think much of the AVCHD code because it gives off a noticeable blur when in motion. Even though a lot of the features have some flaws to correct, they still call it the best HDD camcorder available.
