In Pictures: Best new camcorders at CES '10

Introducing the camcorder cream of the crop...

Canon Legria HF S21

The Legria HF S21 is the latest top-of-the-range camcorder to come from Canon. It will replace the Canon Legria HFS10, which was our favourite camcorder of 2009. Like its predecessor, the Canon Legria HF S21 captures 1920x1080 (1080p) AVCHD video at 24Mbps (megabits per second). Product highlights include a low-light optimised CMOS sensor, a Digic 4 processor, a 10x optical zoom lens, a 3.5in touch-screen LCD panel and 8-megapixel still photo capture.

The Canon Legria HF S21 can also down-convert high-definition AVCHD video to standard-definition MPEG-2 video, which is friendlier for sharing clips on the Web and burning DVDs. In addition to 64GB of internal memory, the Canon Legria HF S21 comes with not one, but two SDHC/SDXC memory card slots. Presumably, this will allow you to hot-swap media without interrupting your recording.

The Canon HFS 21 due for release in April, but pricing is yet to be disclosed.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
