For capturing all of life’s moments, consumers can easily record and share up to 15 hours of High Definition (HD) footage with the newest member of the Canon family of HD camcorders - the Canon HG10 AVCHD Hard Disk Drive Camcorder. As seen in previous Canon HD camcorders, the feature-rich HG10 AVCHD Hard Disk Drive Camcorder features a Genuine Canon 10x HD Video lens, Canon Full HD CMOS image sensor, Canon’s proprietary DIGIC DV II Image Processor, SuperRange Optical Image Stabilization and Instant AF. Whether on vacation, enjoying a relaxing day in the backyard or on the go, Canon’s line of HD Camcorders offers more functionality and flexibility, resulting in beautifully shot footage and lasting memories.

Available in October, the Canon HG10 HD Camcorder will have an estimated selling price of $1299. “The Canon HG10 HD Camcorder is ideal for preserving life’s most important moments,” said Yuichi Ishizuka, senior vice president and general manager, Consumer Imaging Group, Canon U.S.A. “Whether it is recording the 30 seconds of a grandchild’s first at-bat or nonstop recording time at a wedding from the ceremony through the reception, hard disk drive camcorders are beginning to dominate the High Definition market, and with good reason.”

Superior image quality is the de facto standard with Canon products, and the HG10 HD Camcorder is no exception. Jam-packed into its deceptively small body is a range of Canon exclusive features to help make home movies mimic big-budget productions. Canon’s 70 years of expertise in optics contribute to a 10x HD Video lens that features SuperRange Optical Image Stabilization to help correct camera shake during hand-held filming or when the camera is in motion. The Canon Full HD CMOS Sensor captures images at 1920x1080 resolution and Canon's revolutionary Instant AF system offers a dramatic improvement in autofocus speed and accuracy (compared to traditional autofocus systems). Additionally, the camcorder features 24p Cinema Mode, allowing consumers to achieve the look and feel of film.

3.1 Megapixel photos
The Canon HG10 HD Camcorder helps make sure no moment is missed with the ability to capture 3.1 megapixel photos to a miniSD card. And with the Photo Grab function, users can grab 2.0 megapixel (1920x1080) stills directly from the HD video footage during playback. In addition, the HG10 HD Camcorder’s Quick Start function wakes the camera from standby mode nearly instantly and is ready to record at a moment’s notice.

2.7” Widescreen Multi-Angle Vivid LCD
Ease of use is another hallmark of the Canon design. The Canon HG10 HD Camcorder features a new Navigation Control Dial on the LCD panel, enabling users to access the menu easier for improved operability and enhanced ability to search for scenes. Sharing video from nearly any angle is now easier than ever with a bright 2.7” Widescreen Multi-Angle Vivid LCD. What’s more, consumers can enjoy easy one cable connection to High Definition Televisions, thanks to a built in HDMI terminal.

Canon Camcorder HG10 - Software
The Canon HG10 HD Camcorder is bundled with a powerful software suite from Corel (compatible with Windows XP and Windows Vista only). Corel Software includes AVCHD Editing in which users can trim, reorder and combine scenes, as well as add music titles and transitions, allowing the user to burn edited video onto either a full size AVCHD DVD or Standard Definition DVD. What’s more, the Canon HG10 HD Camcorder comes equipped with a Backup Utility Disc, enabling users to safely backup recorded video onto a computer’s hard drive.
