Canon Vixia HR10


$1,399.00 Released October, 2001

Product Shot 1 The Pros:In good lighting the image capture is excellent, everything looks bright and sharp. Plenty of 37mm lenses available that screw onto the front of the camera. Mic captures audio clearly and focuses out ambient noises.

The Cons:The DVD format is now a bit out of date with the wider adoption of Blu-ray, HDTV and digital media. Not too much software supports the AVCHD format. Low lighting or even typical indoor lighting looks pretty grainy.

The Canon Vixia HR10 is a camera that captures in high definition and records directly to DVD. It features a 2.96 megapixel, 1/2.7" CMOS sensor that captures 1920x1080 HD resolution. Its zoom lens is manufactured by Canon and can achieve 10x optical zoom, with an optional 200x digital zoom.
