User Question : Hi,
I understand that the current events in Japan may have delayed the
introduction of your Vixia HF G10 camcorder. I have patiently waited
for it, but without a reasonable date I will have to consider the Sony
or Panasonic offerings that are already currently available. Could you
shed light on the availability of the camcorder? It would at least give
me a target date for having it.
