Expert review by : Good Gear (

High-def video at its best


For an AVCHD removable flash memory camcorder, the HF10 is close to flawless. It offers superior video performance, better build quality and more modes and features than any of its high-def rivals. Highly recommended.

Stunning 'full HD' video resolution, improved AVCHD recording format, arresting design

No standard-definition mode, inbuilt hard drive only 16GB
