Super-stylish; ultra-compact

Flash memory allows for an incredibly compact design that’s small enough to carry in your pocket. Since flash memory involves no moving parts, your precious memories are better protected against knocks and bumps.

1920x1080 Full HD Recording

The HF10 records 1920x1080 Full HD video – matching the resolution of Full HD TVs for the best possible picture quality.

Canon HD Camera System

Enjoy superior quality HD video via the combination of unique Canon technologies: a Canon HD Video Lens with 12x optical zoom, a 3.3 MP Canon Full HD CMOS sensor, and the powerful DIGIC DV II processor.

Instant AF and Super Range Optical Image Stabilizer (OIS)

Focusing errors and camera shake are more noticeable when shooting in HD. Instant AF and a Super Range Optical Image Stabilizer provide a unique solution to these two problems.

Flexible

Shoot with a range of optional peripherals. Manual audio controls, plus microphone and headphone connections, let you capture a great soundtrack. HDMI provides a simple way to get your HD movies onto a TV or compatible computer.

Keep on shooting

With low power consumption, flash memory lets you shoot for longer. The camcorder is also compatible with a high capacity battery pack for even greater shooting times. An Intelligent battery system displays remaining charge to the minute.

Advanced Photo Features

The HF10 lets you capture 3.1 Megapixel photos. Even take 2.07MP shots during recording or grab them from movies you’ve already made. A range of other advanced features are available.

Multiangle Vivid LCD

Preview your movies with family and friends on the 2.7" Multiangle Vivid LCD screen – easy for everyone to gather around. With HCAR surface treatment, images look sharper and colours are vibrant; screen reflection is also minimized.

Shoot, burn, share

The HF10 is compatible with Canon’s optional DW-100 – the easiest way to get your HD movies onto a DVD. Alternatively, PIXELA ImageMixer™ 3 SE is provided – organise, play back and edit your video clips on a PC, then convert them to other file formats.
