There may be a few issues with the HF G10, like its bulkiness, poor touchscreen sensitivity, extremely sparse photo options, and cluttered menu system, but that shouldn’t deter you from what is otherwise an incredible camcorder. But these are minor issues that you’ll get over quickly when you see what the HF G10 is capable of doing; if anything, they’re more of a disclaimer that nothing is perfect.
But it’s definitely a steep price. Asking $1499.99 for a camcorder is a lot and for that price, you better be getting the best. And when it comes to the HF G10’s video capabilities, I can safely say that you are. Those with an affinity for manual controls – once they learn the unintuitive menu system – will especially enjoy themselves here. But if you would rather just let the Intelligent Auto setting do its thing, you’ll still get to experience excellent quality video. Either way, if you’re in the market for a high-end camcorder and you’ve got the cash for it, the HF G10 should be at the top of your list.
