The Canon HF100 wins the day – Stunning outdoor performance and awesome low light performance. Just what i need to shoot the kids in and outdoors.
The competitors that i’ve personally tried failed miserably:
- Panasonic SD9: Pretty small and portable, but produced unusable indoor low light shots with very high levels of grain. Outdoor shots unreliable as autofocus doesn’t seem to lock on very well.
- Sony HDR-TG1: Lovely and small, but no manual controls and terrible low light performance.
