I have been using this camera for a week now and I think it is truly amazing for the type of video I shoot.
I like to be creative and use the camera in difficult situations (bad lighting, events and parties, art videos) without a tripod.
And this camera does it all. And there is so much more to discover.
With this compact camera I have total control of depth of field, shutter time, exposure, focussing on difficult subjects, ect
It also gets the whitebalance right without fiddling with it.
Manipulation of the camera is really practical and I think this is the camera I was waiting for to come on the market.
This camera is perfect for the creative filmer.
The image quality cannot get any better, the sound is ok but much better with an external microphone.
The Sennheiser MKE 400 is a small but high quality microphone that fits well with this camera provided you get an adaptor for the shoe it fits in.
At work I use the Sony NEX VG 10 a camera three times the size and weight of the Canon G10 and very impractical to work with. To get decent results with the Sony I have to zoom and focus manually because you cannot rely on it in automatic.
The Canon G10 gives me the same image quality as the Sony, always focusses right and thanks to the touchscreen I can correct within a second.
I think this is a revolutionary camera. Thank you people from Canon.

A really good mix. One of the selling features of the camera is the 1920x1080 sensor, which unlike the downsampled 8 or 16Mpix sensors has little aliasing and better noise and low-light response. This is a bit of a marketing hype as my previous camera (HV30) also had a sensor closer to full HD than 16Mpix.

Coming from a camera with DV cassettes, I love the absence of cassette noise, the absence of a fragile mechanism with a tag telling you where to press to close the cassette lid without destroying or bending it.

The HF G10 is probably what Canon can do best currently in the consumer space: perfect sharpness, good noise level and low-light sensitivity (although, do not expect miracles either in very low light), thanks to their modern 1:1 sensor. Very good AF and auto white balance. The compression is fairly good, and allows a quite high bit-rate.

I was also fairly impressed by the quality of the sound track, even without an external microphone.

Finally, the LCD is very sharp, and the controls of the camera with the touchscreen are working fine. Useful functions such as peak detector for checking AF or preprogrammed AF to switch focus from one object to another are really useful features.

The lens focal range is very good, from 30 to approx 300 in 35 mm equivalent. The wide-angle is great. Wider would probably introduce distortions that are difficult to tame.

You feel that Canon has been cutting some corners to deliver this camera. Buttons outside of the touchscreen are relatively scarce. I can live with a manual in PDF but saving on the strap is a bit stingy from Canon. The lens lid is not attached to some string so do not lose it. But heck probably Canon would have charged more otherwise.

Unlike most modern camcorders that promise stunning HD quality videos and only produce dark, grainy pixelated scenes, the Canon LEGRIA HF G10 atually delivers exactly what it promises. Beautiful and eye-wateringly sharp images that look more real and high definition than reality itself.

After a few minutes of filming some of the plants and flowers in the garden, I transferred the videos over to examine and I was absolutely staggered by how sharp and clear the images were. The picture was cinematic razor sharp, vivid colour and thanks to the manual focus (on cinematic setting) I was able to play with the focus on various aspects of plants, able to blur out the elements I wasn't interested in seeing.

A few points worth mentioning:

* Comes with a remote control and a battery; video bloggers will rejoice at this (also handy if you need to use it on a tripod for scenes that can't allow for any movement of the camera, no matter how slight). Also has a stylus as it's a touch screen.

* The flip out touch screen is massive, and gives you an excellent picture of what you're filming without you needing to rely on your viewfinder.

* Does take stills but they're not excellent (not really what it's meant for though anyway).

* The software for transfer is fast and easy to install and you can view your videos in minutes.

* The camera is so easy to use right from the start, I didn't even feel the need to really look at the manual (provided on a disc in the box).

* Has functions that let you edit and add features to your videos without even needing to use editing software. You can add effects to your videos as you're filming (such as stars and sparkles for example).

Canon's Legria HF G-10 gives stunningly good results. It's especially good in low-light situations, and it also packs in loads of options for manual control.

Its sensor (CMOS rather than CCD) is only 2M pixels, which is exactly right for HD video. It means that the size of each pixel on the sensor can be much larger than those on the higher-resolution sensors used in most amateur video cameras, which improves sensitivity and reduces grain. Of course, this also means that if you want to take still photos using this camera, you're limited to 2M pixels. The optics on this videocamera are also huge, so more light gets to the sensor in the first place. And the result is that even in dim surroundings you can still get excellent results.

One of the most intriguing features of this camera is its knurled aluminium focussing ring round the lens. This - coupled with assistance provided by the camera - makes it very easy indeed to manually set up the focus for a shot. The camera can zoom in on the centre of the frame to assist with focussing, which is fine if your subject is in the centre of the frame; I turned this option off. There's a much more useful option to detect in-focus vertical edges, and highlight them in a different colour, which is what I use. The autofocus is very fast and precise; you can switch from auto-focus to manual during a shot, and you can also preset a focal-length and recall it at the press of a button, which is pretty nifty.

You also have options to set exposure, white balance and audio level manually. The latter two are straightforward; however, you have several choices for exposure.
