Display

Average Display Diagonal

The HMX-R10 has a fairly standard display diagonal (2.7 inches) compared to most of the other camcorders of this spec and age.

We compared all the other 2.7" screen size video cameras to this video camera and we think because of it's better review score, the Samsung F90BN ($245.95), and the Sony HDR-CX400E ($297.99) is also worth considering.

If this video camera display diagonal is too small for you then you might want to look at the JVC GZ-R10 (3"), or the Sony HXR-MC2500E (3") which also has a higher rating.
