Canon's new HF10 high def solid-state video camera


The very-nice people that work at down the street from me here in Boston got a first look at the new Canon HF10 high definition camcorder.

I’ll let them do most of the talking but the basic pros include 16GB of flash memory, plus the ability to record on SDCH memory cards, full 1920×1080 resolution for true HD recording with a 17Mbps bitrate at 30P (it also does 60i and 24P). 

Cons include a proprietary shoe (you’ll have to buy all new accessories) and a mini HDMI port that renders your regular HDMI cables useless. Also, the camcorder seemed a little awkward to use (especially the zoom toggle).
