Canon HDV Camcorder Washington DC

The Canon HV10's image is remarkably noise free, the other outstanding element of the picture. When an image is going to be projected on a larger screen, noise can only get more apparent. In this light, there was almost none to speak of. The apparent sharpness was good - what you'd expect from HD and far better than most standard def video - but there was a slightly soft look to the image overall.

canon HV10 HDV Camcorder Review

In this light, there was almost none to speak of. The apparent sharpness was good - what you'd expect from HD and far better than most standard def video - but there was a slightly soft look to the image overall.

The upright, pistol-grip body produces some very real handling issues. For anything but point-and-shoot operation, making adjustments can be a pain, and upset the picture stability. More seriously, the low light performance was terrible. You'll be shooting in "low light" more often than you think, as camcorders require a lot more light than the human eye, which makes this category so critical.
