The Xacti CG10 has proven to be one of the most desirable ultra-portable HD camcorders on the market since its release in early 2009. It's an interesting video/still hybrid, offering 720p HD video at reasonable quality for the price, as well as a 10 megapixel camera. The clincher here is the portability and ease of use. The pistol-grip is a vast improvement on the awkward design of the underwhelming CG9, while the menu system is quite easy to navigate, even with just a thumb. For quick, convenient videos ready for YouTube or a simple family library, the CG10 is a strong choice.
