Canon has always had competitive high-end camcorders, but the LEGRIA HF G10 is a bit of a departure even in this context. Using a professional-grade sensor, the G10 offers close to the best overall image quality we've seen in a consumer-grade camcorder, and its low light performance is without equal. There's also a lens ring and assignable dial providing rapid access to a comprehensive set of manual controls. Only the proprietary Canon accessory shoe and high price preclude this from being the best consumer-grade camcorder on the market.
