Pros  + manual controls for shutter and aperture
+ factory setting adjustable
Cons  - somewhat blurred compared with other HD video
Conclusion Little wide angle, but the most natural image in this price range, average low-light performance, and even some useful manual control.With this offer Canon stays just below the 300 Euro threshold (internet prices), but still lies above the competition, who show other strengths and cost about 50 less. Hence, those looking for a camera in these price regions should make their decision based on tolerable weaknesses, which are distributed differently among the tested cameras.Handlingwise no other mini-cam is up to par with the Panasonic SD10.Others functions like the distortionless lens or the optical image stabilizer are realised well.Apart from its somwhat low image sharpness we think this camera is well done for its price.
