So IMO 'by today's standards' the HG10 is the best AVCHD camera available as of Febuary 2008

Of course the dark horse in this race could be the new Sonys with combo hard drive and chip HD recording. They will do a full 1920X1080 recording just like the HF10 and HF100. Based on recent history however, it seems that Canon has been trumping Sony on picture quality in the consumer camcorder arena.

Just to let everyone know that Canon has now corrected their HG10 website to show that the HG10 records "HD" to the hard drive. They have dropped the 1920X1080 claim.

Yes Ken they have dropped it from that part. But they still claim:

'The HG10 captures 1920x1080 High Definition video through its Canon designed and manufactured CMOS image sensor, similar to the CMOS image sensors in Canon's EOS Series Digital SLR cameras.'

Is there a real difference between 'capture' and 'record' ?

Without refering to a dictionary, to me, to capture would be to get something and keep it or hold on to it. (ie record)

Their choice of terms has very strong potential to confuse some folks, but in the strictest sense of the word, they are right: the CMOS sensor "captures" light coming in from the lens at 1920 x 1080. That much is true. After processing it is then recorded to the drive at 1440 x 1080.

Yes there is a difference between "capture" vs. "record" but I wish they would have used a different term than capture.

Glad to see some changes have been made on their site -- proof that they are watching our site.

Now that the corrections have been made to the Canon website, may I suggest that Chris lock this thread before the model trumpeting begins anew?
