Don't be fooled by its thoroughly '80s body (if this was a clutch bag, it would have been in Melanie Griffith's paws as she trundled over to Manhattan on the Staten Island ferry in Working Girl)— Canon's new iVIS HR10, out over here this summer, is utterly Noughties by nature, as it records everything in either MP4 or H.264 format.

So, as well as burning your home vids straight to DVD, what else is interesting about this HDV/AVCHD camcorder? It's got a Canon 10x optical zoom lens, a Full HD 1920 x 1080 CMOS image sensor (1080i) and uses AVCHD video format.

Sharpness comes courtesy of Canon's Instant AF focus system, sensitivity courtesy of the DIGIC DV II, and there's Super Range Optical Image Stabilization. Still pictures get the 3.2 megapixel treatment and there's a 2.7-inch wide screen for you to see your handiwork on.

First off, clutch bags were of the 70s disco era, not 80s at all, but even so, this doesn''t have an 80s aesthetic at all. You might be able to say that it has a 70s BSG vibe, but I still think it has a modern edge and it's kind of cool. Anyway, I want one.
