Now about the Sony HDR-FX7, I’d say at the least it’s a prosumer camcorder. My only complaint is the sensor types being CMOS rather than CCDs. The imaging system, as well as the pro shutter speed probably makes up for some of the side affects such as shutter roll.
The Canon HF-S10 is a truly compelling and powerful camcorder for its class (900 horizontal lines of resolution). It offers a wide array of manual controls that you typically don’t find in consumer models. I’d say these are two of its biggest strong points.
