I've been reading this thread for a while. All the comments were very helpful. This morning,
I ordered my HF11 and I should get it on Monday!
I have a few of questions for those
who currently own the HF11.#1Is there a case that's specifically made for the HF11?
(or the previous model, the HF10)
I want something that's really small for just the HF11, no battery and no extras.
The only thing that I saw was a carrying case on Canon's Japan website. But that case does not
appear to be available anywhere but Japan.
Here's the case on Canon's Japan website:
It's the top one, included in the TBK-800, which also includes a battery and a charger.#2how long will the battery last if I use the HF11 with the VL-5 video light at the same time?
Canon's spec shows the HF11's power consumption as 4W in SP mode. I supposed MXP mode will be
at least 5W. Since the VL-5 light is also a 5W bulb, so using both at the same time will half the
state battery runtime.... or is this math wrong?#3
I know I'll find out when I receive my HF11 next week... but I was wondering... is the HF11
completely silent when I'm videotaping with it? My previous camcorder was the HV20 (HDV
using tape) and it was somewhat noisy. I figured the HF11 has no moving parts, so it must
be silent, yes?
