Need HD Camcorder: How To Shop?


Recommended Posts

I bought the Canon HG10 just before Christmas, and so far I've been pretty happy with it. I haven't shot a whole lot of video yet, and I haven't actually gotten to the point of editing yet, but from what I've seen I'm not disappointed. After narrowing down the units that don't do 1920x1080 resolution, it seems like a lot of the differences are down to storage medium, interface, and form factor. I eventually got the decision down to the Canon and a comparable Sony, and ended up going with the Canon simply because it was 200 bucks (later 350 after a price match) cheaper. I think the Sony does have better image stabilization, but that's something you can judge in store.


Next up-a NAS to store all of that video. The 40 Gb drive in the camera fills in under 6 hours at max resolution.
