The flash camcorder eliminates the possibility of a hard drive malfunction. However, that means you need to buy into the media which can cost a lot of money if you go on a long trip with no computer to dump the files. Besides that, the optics and features are not much different at all.
Need to buy camera soon I want to know which is better a hard drive based or a flash based camera. Any advise between the Canon HG10 or HF10. The flash based is more expensive. Is it really worth it?
