Canon HV30 review,
This review is from: Canon HV30 High Definition Camcorder (10 x Optical Zoom With 2.7 inch Widescreen Multi-Angle Vivid LCD) (Camera)
Bought this camera after reading several reviews and have not been disappointed. The video is absolutely first class with excellent colour and sharpness.
The manual is well structured and fairly straightforward to follow and the camera features and functions are more than adequate for amateur videographers. Was initially slightly disappointed with audio until I realized camera was set to 12 bit audio by default (easy to change to 16 bit).
Only minor niggle is quite pronounced tape noise from camera but only really noticeable in very quiet scenes. Even then you could always buy an external mic.
