Canon's HF G10 flagship camcorder makes a refreshing break from the "more is more" attitude prevalent in digital imaging. The HF G10 should offer excellent video quality because it records exactly 1920 pixels by 1080 pixels. There's no downscaling, upscaling, or picture resizing of any kind. There's more room for each individual pixel on the already-large 1/3" CMOS sensor, so the low-light performance and dynamic range should be extra-sensitive. The rest of the package is quite compelling as well: a 10x lens with 8-blade iris and manual focus ring, 5.1 surround-sound audio-recording capability, 3.5-inch, 922k dot touch LCD, native 24fps shooting, and some cool extras like cinema-look filters and a "story creator" mode. This is an all-around heavy-hitter.
