The Canon HF G10 delivers great video quality and a lot of useful features for advanced shooters. Design issues that affect frequently used adjustments may annoy the very people it is designed to attract, and for the money it should ship with a double-capacity battery. However, compared with the rest of Canon's camcorders, one of the distinguishing features of the G10 is support for true 24p video; not just the 24 frames per second captured as progressive but encoded as 60i, as is most common for AVCHD models, but 24p encoding. You can use that to get around interlace issues.
