Anyone matching the 60d with the hfg10 camcorder canon. Any tips on the picture settings. Cheers Steve

I have a 60D and have looked at a G10. The lens on my 60D is hard to beat, but the G10 would be great for a secondary run-and-gun type of camera. A combination of an HD video cam and a DSLR for a kit is a great one. The DOF is always gonna be better with a manual lens but the sensor comparison is not bad for the G10.

No problem, I havent looked into the G10 menu's much other than at the camera store ,but im thinking it has a manual white balance adjustment. It would be a cool experiment to set both cameras at the same WB value and try to match the exposure and see how close they are. For example if the 60D is on 4000k then set the G10 on 4000k, and adjust the other settings accordingly. If you happen to try it make us a vid. I would like to see how close the color is as well.

Sweet, Good luck m8. I will be interested to see what people can get out of the G10. I went around in circles with that camera before buying my 60D mainly because the 60 was cheaper and had so much to offer. They both have their perks though...and I still want an HD video cam for other uses. They are so much better for run-and-gun action and high speed movements etc.. I got spoiled on the one I used in college which was a Sony Pmw-EX1 right when it came out. Just wish I had 6 grand for one of those too! but then again I could go on for ages about what camera I want.

Ye your right there are times when I cannot physically use all the 60d running and gunning. Weddings are hard! You can miss so much all Dslr. My old hv40s have helped me out many times. Hehehe.
Would like a couple of fx100/300 but to expensive, but I do love the Dslr look when I have time in the reception mingling... Bokeh...

Besides matching the 24p frame rates and low aperture on both cameras, you will have far more flexibility adjusting color and contrast in post editing rather than in camera.

Thanks sspellman, yes i do that anyway but i like to get it near match so it only takes some minor adjustment in the edit room, as i am the lower price bracket for my work so less time less pay...

If you don't have a requirement for long recording time, then the best option is another cheaper Canon DSLR such as a used T2i. DSLRs and camcorders will never look similar.

Agreed and another 60d and lens same price as camcorder but to be honest in my weddings running and gunning is hard with Dslr. Not that I can't do it as I have filmed many weddings alone with two Dslr but it's the moments missed by setting up the shot. Camcorder let it roll and viola...

Just use the same technique of the camcorder on a tripod with a remote wireless trigger. The recordings will max out at 30 min or less, but the low light performance of any Canon DSLR will be much better than the camcorder.
