Not only is the HG10 from Canon one of the world’s smallest AVCHD Hard Disk Drive (HDD) camcorders, it’s also, the first Canon camcorder to benefit from a HDD. The device boasts a 40GB HDD, which can hold up to 15hrs of HD footage. Capable of recording in a 1080i HD resolution, the camcorder also features over an hour of continuous recording on a single charge.
A new battery pack is also available from Canon, which doubles shooting time to more than two hours on a single charge.
Additional features include a HD-optimised DIGIC DVII processor, a 10x optical zoom and a Super Range Optical Image Stabiliser (OIS).
