Canon Vixia HF G10 photos

While the Canon Vixia HF G10 is a great camcorder, some aspects of the design may irritate pickier shooters.

I've been reviewing hardware and software, devising testing methodology and handed out buying advice for what seems like forever; I'm currently absorbed by computers and gaming hardware, but previously spent many years concentrating on cameras. I've also volunteered with a cat rescue for over 15 years doing adoptions, designing marketing materials, managing volunteers and, of course, photographing cats.

Sturdy

Overall, the camcorder is well constructed and easy to grip, and the manual focus ring and zoom switch are very responsive.

Top controls

The G10 has three shooting modes: Auto, Manual, and Cinema (24p). The built-in stereo mics deliver a nice, warm sound.

Cards

All of Canon's new camcorders include two SDXC slots, which is a nice touch. Under the cover are a component video out and headphone jack.

Back

The Custom button is too small, and both it and the adjustment dial are positioned in a location that isn't comfortable for shooting either with the LCD or the EVF.
