When the HFS10 first hit the scene it was $1399.00 and there were not many of them manufactured due to the cost. The refurb cost me $333.95 delivered to my front door.
The camcorder has a CMOS sensor that is native-mode high-definition 1920 x 1080 resolution and sports a made-for-HD-video lens (10X zoom).
Here is a little video...
I composed the soundtrack in Mixcraft 8.0 and edited the video with Serif Software's MoviePlus.
So far, I am very impressed.
