    Finally an AVCHD Camcorder worth buying, April 3, 2008

    I had the award-winning HDV (tape-based) HV20 prior to this, and the HF10 is almost indistinguishable in terms of image quality. Given the dramatic difference in image data between an HDV image and an AVC image, that means this is one heck of a camcorder. I have tried out other AVC camcorders and have been really disappointed. Not so here, and I purchased this one. It has 24p and 30p recording, in addition to 60i. (Don’t be confused by Canon’s nomenclature, it is true 24p, just recorded in interlaced 60i.) The cinema mode has a bit of a wash-out effect on colors. The camcorder is surprisingly small. Power save mode is great, and is virtually instantaneously on when the LCD screen is opened. One warning about AVC in general, if you don’t have a fast computer, it will grind it to a halt. I have a quad-core with 4 gig RAM and editing is fine, but I wouldn’t want to use an old computer. Sony Vegas works great with the files. Wish the camcorder automatically saved to the SDHC card when the internal storage was full. Otherwise, this is the best thought out camcorder since my DVX-100. Nice to occasionally see consumer products worth their expense.

    How to import video into iMovie on the Mac, July 16, 2008

    This is a marvelous camcorder. Rather than repeat what some of the other reviews have mentioned, I thought I’d explain how to import video on the Mac, because it wasn’t obvious to me. First, you must have an Intel based Mac running Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard). You also need iMovie ’08, which comes with new Macs. If you’re running an older version of Mac OS X (such as Tiger) or have an older version of iMovie, or have a PowerPC based Mac, you won’t be able to import video from this camera.

    To import video, attach the camcorder to the Mac with the USB cable that’s included with the camcorder. Make sure you plug your camcorder into AC power, running from the battery won’t work. Set the mode dial on the camera to video playback (the little blue camcorder icon). Turn on the camcorder. Now open the LCD display on the camcorder, and you’ll see it’s asking you a question: use the joystick to choose “computer” for where you’re connecting the USB cable. I spent some time the first time I wanted to import wondering why iMovie couldn’t see the camcorder until I finally tried opening the LCD screen and noticed this question. Once you’ve made this choice, iMovie will detect the camcorder and will be able to import video, and you can do the rest from iMovie.

    Very nice camera. Be aware of AVCHD limitations., May 28, 2008

    This is a fantastic camera but people need to have more realistic expectations of what to expect from AVCHD. It is a highly compressed format so using this camera in low-light conditions is going to produce pretty “grainy” results. In good lighting AVCHD output from this camera can produce some really great looking results in HD but don’t kid yourself into thinking you’re going to get professional HDTV quality. This is a point-and-shoot.

    I love the camera, especially how fast it focuses in good light, so I’m going to concentrate on what some of the other reviewers said to correct some misconceptions.

    I use both Macs and PC and I have to tell you that you that PCs suck for AVCHD – you will waste a lot of time and pull your hair out. I’m sure PC video software vendors will address this eventually, but seriously folks if you want to do this the easy way get an Intel-based Mac (caveat: only Intel based machines using Leopard support AVCHD) and use either iMovie or Final Cut Express 4. Both of these programs (iMovie 08 and FCE4) just LOVE this camera (and two other Sony AVCHD cameras I’ve tried as well) and they work like a charm. Video making has never been this easy. FCE4 lets you mix AVHCD, HDV and SD video on the same timeline and save in whatever format you want so it’s worth the $200 if you want to do that or have more exacting control over your videos. It is basically a (lightly) stripped-down version of Apple’s excellent professional video software (Final Cut Pro) and it is very good. For most home videos iMovie 08 (which comes in iLife 08) will be just fine.

    I’ve had no problem transferring the movies directly from the camera but, as mentioned earlier, you do need to have the camera plugged into the AC to do it. You can avoid plugging the camera into your Mac to transfer the files if you’re only recording on SDHC cards, rather than internal memory on the HF10, but it works just fine. For this reason I would recommend buying the HF100 (over the HF10) and getting an extra 16Gb memory card or two. You will save money that way and have more flexibility. I bought the HF10 because I had to have it the next day and, at the time, the HF100s were delayed a bit. Transcend’s excellent 16Gb SDHC Class 6 card comes with a nifty little card reader for only $78.98 here on Amazon, you can get two of them for less than the $200 difference in price between the HF10 and HF100 so you’ll have 32gb to work with instead of 16gb for less money. I don’t mind having the internal memory as a backup but you pay more than it is worth for it.

    The video camera is just acting like a USB reader when you connect it to your Mac anyway – it is the file layouts that the software recognizes. When read in and converted to Apple Intermediate Codec at 1920×1080 they will balloon in size. If you want to store the raw video in a more compressed way you can simply copy the root directory of the card to another directory and copy it back again later. If you’re working with AVCHD you need to buy the biggest hard drives you can afford. 60 minutes of video will use up something like 50Gb of storage on your Mac when converted to 1920×1080. If you just want great looking home video to show on your HDTV, but don’t want to go broke on hard drives, Apple offers to import the movies at a slightly lower resolution (960×540) which takes up a LOT less space with very little drop in quality. I have been making home videos and showing them on an Apple TV at that resolution and they look stunning. The quality difference between that resolution and full HD isn’t that big of a deal.

    If want to try to get truly professional-quality video you should avoid AVCHD cameras and stick to the HDV format concentrating on cameras with larger sensors. But this is great camera for HD home videos at a great price.

    The user interface on this camera is slow and clunky. Sony’s AVCHD cameras have a better interface (using a touch screen) but you can still watch back the videos (which is the main thing you’ll do) and it beats the heck out of a tape camera. I wish they had added a dial or button set for adjust exposure and/or backlighting control on the camera. The joystick works surprisingly well for this however in bright light the screen gets washed out enough that it is hard to tell if your exposure is really that great or not. This is where a viewfinder would really help. But these are minor nits because the camera does a good job at exposure control on its own.

    As I said earlier this is a very compact point-and-shoot camera that shoots HD video and for that it’s excellent.
