    I have owned a small wedding videography company for 5 years and after using this camera for a week I am incredibly pleased with it. If you want the smallest camcorder you can get without sacrificing video quality in any way, than this is the camcorder for you. I am amazed at how small this thing is while still having a professional grade lens. This is the same Canon lens as on their GL2 which is probably the most popular entry level professional camcorder ever (which I have owned for a few years).

    Pros:
    1.) Professional camera lens with superb HD video quality (even in low light situations). I cannot express enough how amazing the pictures look.

    2.) 32 GB of internal Flash memory (This is the only difference from the HFS100)
    A.) Flash memory is instant. No waiting for tapes to wind or hard drives to spin.
    B.) Flash memory helps keep the camera small.
    C.) Flash memory protects data from being lost due to the camera being dropped or hit (a real problem with hard drive cameras).

    3.) The still picture quality, even with the built in flash, is unbelievable for a camcorder. I feel like I am shooting with my Rebel XTi.

    4.) I love the auto open and close lens cover. It only opens when you are actually shooting. If the camera is off or if you are reviewing it immediately closes.

    5.) Menus are very easy to navigate.

    Cons:
    1.) Doesn’t come with an HDMI cable. Since it doesn’t take a normal sized HDMI cable I think there is no excuse for that.

    2.) Doesn’t come with a battery charger. You either have to spend $50 to get one or recharge batteries using the camcorder itself.

    3.) $200 more than the HFS100 for only 32GB of internal storage is way too much. Should have only cost an extra $100. Unless you need to be able to record more than 2.5 hours of shooting without changing SDHC cards, then get the HFS100 because 32GB class 6 SDHC cards only cost $100.

    4.) Only comes with the BP-809 battery which doesn’t even last an hour. So you will need to buy the BP-827 which costs another $150. The BP-827 does stick out from the back just a slight bit, but not even an inch and is totally not noticeable nor does it add any real weight.

    5.) 10X optical zoom is a little slim for my liking. I am used to 20X.

    This camcorder is basically a professional lens barrel with an LCD on the side which gives you the best picture quality possible while keeping the size incredibly small. I cannot encourage you enough to get this camcorder though I would advise the HFS100 over this to save a little money. Remember, the HFS100 is the identical camcorder except it does not have internal memory.

    Customer review from the Amazon Vine™ Program (What’s this?)

    The Vixia HFS10 is an upgrade for me, coming from the Canon VIXIA HG20 AVCHD 60 GB HDD Camcorder with 12x Optical Zoom. I’ve been enjoying the HG20 for a few months now, so being able to dig in to the new features on a 2009 model camera has been a real treat.

    Right off the bat, the video image quality on the HFS10 is incredible. Hands down, the best I have ever used. Facial recognition is blazing fast and accurate, even when people are moving reasonably fast. Recording in low light indoors produces bright and clear results. Recording in very bright light outdoors produces a razor-sharp picture with virtually no halo effects or bleeding. This is where Canon really shows off the new Digic 3 processor.

    The 10X optical zoom is smooth, and doesn’t lose focus easily when zooming in and out. However, at this price point, 10X is certainly on the lower end of the spectrum of what’s available. While that’s disappointing, the image stabilization definitely makes up for it. At full zoom, the image stabilization compensates for normal “jitters” exceedingly well.

    On the still image side, the Digic 3 is able to bring some nice surprises, as well. The “real” pop-up flash works better than expected for indoor shots. For most point-and-shoot scenarios, the HFS10 will stomp all over Canon Elph cameras, and comes pretty close to what you’d expect from a PowerShot (albeit, at a different overall resolution).

    Again, the image stabilization really shines with still pictures. But one thing I did notice, is that the HFS10 seems to do “strange things” with still images in low light. Things that should have halos (e.g. sunsets) don’t, even with different CP and UV filters.

    Speaking of filters, the HFS10 has a 58mm lens barrel. So, you have tons and tons of filter options at every imaginable price point. Out of habit, I threw on a SUNPAK CF-7034 UV Ultra-Violet Filter that I had lying around my SLR gear bag along with a spare cap. Though I’m not real big on Tiffen glass, I also tried out a Tiffen 58MM Circular Polarizer, which produced really interesting results with some nature videos.

    Anyone who has used a previous generation Vixia or Canon still camera will feel right at home with the menu system. The layout is basically the same, and functions are right where you’d expect them to be. For those not familiar with Canon cameras, getting used to the menu system is very easy.

    The only thing that really took some adjustment was using the “time machine” feature that lets you go back and record something that happened three seconds in the past. It works flawlessly, but adjusting to the delay in the viewfinder was really difficult for me to get used to.

    Also new for this year: logical port placement, and decent quality port protectors! The HDMI, USB, and component connectors are on the right side of the camera and have a sturdy plastic door to protect them, instead of the flimsy rubberized plugs on last year’s models (and they’re no longer behind the LCD!). Strangely, Canon has chosen to move the battery release behind the LCD, making it a bit awkward to switch out batteries.

    The included Canon BP-807/808 battery consistently gives about 90 minutes of continuous use. I was happy to see that last year’s batteries are compatible, so I’ve been using a Canon BP-819, which gives just over 200 minutes. Although the BP-819 is a larger battery, it’s almost flush with the back of the camera when installed.

    Of course, the included software is trash. I installed it for the sake of reviewing it, but really, if you’re looking to spend this kind of money on a camera, you owe it to yourself to spend another couple hundred on decent video editing software. As a Mac user, iMovie does a passable job, but takes forever to do its various conversions from AVCHD. I stepped up to Final Cut Express 4, which works perfectly with this camera. Of course, there are many options for Windows users as well.

    The biggest shortcoming — and this is huge…

    I exchanged a Sony HDR 500v for this camcorder after getting a loud hissing sound from the sony. That gave me a chance to actually play with the sony a little bit before returning it. In a few words if you are familiar with manual controls in photography, you’ll love the Vixia (which is my case). If you need something simpler, point-and-shoot-kind-of devise, go with the sony. I’m a professional photographer who does video for fun and I absolutely like the amount of manual controls this camera offers. (The sony didn’t even have a sound level meter that you could turn on! A must if you use a second mic.)

    It also has this ‘springy’ on-screen-menu that allows you to change your recording settings in as little as two steps. Very very helpful, again for the person who likes manual controls.

    Another feature which I really like is the fact that they placed the remote control sensor on the LCD viewer, which allows you to use the remote control to actually record from any position as long as you have a direct view of the LCD screen. The sony has the remote sensor in the front which forces you to be in front of the camera if you want to activate the recording (almost impossible when you are anywhere but in front of the camera). For example if you mount your camera on a monopod when you need to get a shot over a crowd of people, and your fingers cant reach the record button because it is too high, with the sony is impossible to use the remote to do this because the sensor is in front of the camera even if you have very long arms you still are going to have a hard time making it record. Both Canon and Sony removed the LANC input on these new cameras so there is no way to operate them remotely with wired LANC controls. So in the canon as long as you have the LCD facing you then you can use the remote control to start/stop recording.

    And one more little thing which I think is great is the ability to turn the recording light off. (The red light you see in the front of cameras) This is great because some people get uncomfortable when they know they are being recorded. When they think the camera is off they act natural and thus you get better expressions in your video.
