Canon Vixia HF G10 Camcorder Review
Like the previous Canon models, the HF G10 handled our motion test quite well, and it earned plenty of bonus points for its extra frame rates. In addition to recording regular 60i video, the HF G10 also has PF30, PF24, and a native 24p frame rate for HD video recording. The only frame rate the camcorder is lacking that we'd like to see is a 1080/60p mode, which is found on the Panasonic HDC-TM700 as well as new 2011 models from Sony (like the HDR-CX700V). More on how we test motion.
There wasn’t much artifacting in the HF G10’s motion image, and the video produced by the camcorder was very smooth. The only problem we noticed was some slight blur on the rotating pinwheels in our test. Other than that, the HF G10’s video looked as good as the best motion performers we’ve seen. It’s video wasn’t quite as smooth as Panasonic’s 1080/60p mode on the TM700, but it was close.
