Packing in every feature a video enthusiast could ask for, the VIXIA HF G10 Flash Memory camcorder is Canon's new flagship consumer camcorder, providing the ultimate in HD video performance and quality. Incorporating a 32GB internal flash drive, as well as dual SDXC-compatible card slots, it delivers exceptional storage capacity.
Recording Full HD 1920 x 1080 video, the VIXIA HF G10 features a Genuine Canon 10x HD Video Lens (35mm equivalent of 30.4mm – 304 mm) with an 8-blade iris for smooth background blur and a dedicated manual focus ring for enhanced control. The VIXIA HF G10 boasts Canon's HD CMOS Pro Image Sensor which provides outstanding video resolution, superb low-light performance, and a wide dynamic range. The 3.5-inch High Resolution Touch Panel LCD provides a large, crisp display, and easy menu navigation. And advanced features such as an improved built-in microphone, Native 24p recording, Cinema-Look Filters, and full manual control provide the discerning user with an extensive level of creative management.
Canon HD CMOS Pro Image Sensor Incorporating a technology proven in Canon’s professional level camcorders, HD CMOS Pro is a 1/3” native 1920 x 1080 image sensor which delivers outstanding video resolution, superb low-light performance and a wide dynamic range. Unlike image sensors found in competitive consumer camcorders, HD CMOS Pro uses fewer pixels, which are significantly larger and more sensitive, resulting in optimized video performance.
DIGIC DV III Image Processor Canon’s DIGIC DV III Image Processor provides stunningly realistic color and sophisticated noise reduction for exceptional low-light performance. It is also the high-speed engine that powers a variety of Canon technologies including Smart Auto, Touch & Track, Genuine Canon Face Detection, and Cinema-Look Filters.
HD Video Lens The VIXIA HF G10 features a Genuine Canon 10x HD Video Lens which offers a 35mm equivalent of 30.4mm - 304mm. It delivers unsurpassed image quality, the versatility of a wide angle of view and smooth and professional looking background images thanks to a sophisticated 8-blade iris. The professional touch of a dedicated manual focus ring allows accurate and precise control. Combined with Canon’s Exclusive HD CMOS Pro Image Sensor, it captures video with stunning resolution, superb low-light performance, and a wide dynamic range.
Full HD, 24Mbps Recording You will find that exceptionally lifelike tone and detail are captured thanks to 24Mbps Recording, which offers the highest bit rate in AVCHD. The VIXIA HF G10 not only captures images in Full HD, but records and outputs at 1920 x 1080 as well, so you get Full HD from lens to screen.
Dynamic SuperRange Optical Image Stabilization with Powered IS The VIXIA HF G10 features Canon’s proprietary Dynamic SuperRange Optical Image Stabilization which provides continuous adjustment throughout the entire zoom range to correct a broad range of motion. Extra compensation is applied at wide-angle focal lengths to eliminate unwanted shaking which is common when walking. Together with the latest development, Powered IS, you’ll find an even higher level of compensation for subtle hand movement at the telephoto end of the zoom range. Powered IS can be engaged by pressing or holding the Powered IS button on the Touch Panel LCD.
Flash Memory The VIXIA HF G10 allows you to record up to 12 hours of clear high definition video to a 32GB internal flash drive or to two SDXC-compatible memory card slots. With Relay Recording, the camcorder automatically switches video recording from the internal drive to the SD memory cards when the memory becomes full. No need then to worry about running out of recording time during a thrilling, once-in-a-lifetime shot. With SDXC memory card compatibility, you’ll have card storage capacity from more than 32GB up to 2TB and ultra-fast data transfer speeds.

Read full details.
Pros: The video quality is absolutely stunning. Low light performance is beyond what I ever expected and surpasses the low light quality that my recently retired XL2 and GL2 provided. The image stabilizer is amazing and the auto focus using face recognition is spot on. The touch screen also lets you specify what you want the camera to focus on or whose face should have priority.
The design is compact and fits well in my hands, the touch screen is fairly intuitive and easy to use. The swipe functions could be a little better but you get used to them. All in all while the price may cause some heartburn, I have to say that this was a fantastic buy and I have absolutely no regrets.
Cons: Very short battery life for the price, this camera should have come with an extended life battery. They say it's a 2 hour battery, but don't expect to get 2 hours out of it. The camera uses a lot of power even when it's not recording.
Limited MAC support, OSX can't read the files straight from the camera, however provided you don't record in 24p, you can import any file with iMovie. I haven't tested this with FCP-X.
Canon branded accessories for this camera are excessively priced.
Other Thoughts: Overall this is a fantastic camera. I do recommend buying it and am confident that you will be very pleased if you do.
If you're a MAC user, be ready to import with iMovie and do not record in 24p. As I mentioned before, I haven't tested the import functionality with FCP-X so I can't tell you whether it can read 24p or not.

Tech Level: 5/5
Rating: 4/5Great Camcorder but
Pros: Great camcorder for run and gun applications, price point is good for performance, all 58 mm external lenses and filters from the HFS-100 camcorders including battery and external chargers will work as well as the Canon external microphone with the mini proprietary mounting.
Cons: Keep in mind the price of this camcorder - this is a PROSUMER CAMERA SO DON'T THINK IT WILL COMPARE TO A EOS 5D MKii ... also the camera shoots slightly on the cool side of the spectrum ie: output (color balance) in any mode or filter applied is slightly blue but easily corrected in post - post with good software will yield video that is so good you can mix it with the EOS 5D MKii material and rarely see the difference excepting very low light shots.
Very low light video will be slightly grainy - use the low light options or cine mode to reduce this or if you have a 5D MKii the choice is simple.
Forget about taking stills - this is a video camera with stills for desperate moments.
1/3 inch vs 1/4 inch CMOS sensors - bigger is better and large pixels vs small - makes this single sensor work well in low light and shadows.
Other Thoughts: Very good image stabilization - get a larger battery and 58 mm filter for the lens - internal 32 GB memory is adequate for most work so you don't need to buy additional to populate the A and B card slots. Works well with RAYNOX fish-eye and wide 58 mm mount lenses but these lenses do reduce the clarity slightly (light reduction and focus) due to their optical parameters.
