Summary: I bought one about 2 years ago. My son used it to make a couple of videos for his website before his untimely death this year--age 47. The remote capability for this unit is unique in the price class and very convenient. I bought a second unit on eBay for use by a pastor who makes mission trips to South America. Again, the remote is an important factor. The units have performed well and it is relatively easy to make DVDs from the videos.
Summary: The first thing I thought when I opened the package and picked up the FS10 was "boy this baby is small and light and just holy cow what a change from the DV camera I owned previously!" I wasn't quite sure if I could get my hands used to something so small, but I've got to tell you it's fantastic -- so easy to just pick up and go. I really like the joystick control feature, instead of a touch screen. I don't have to worry about getting fingerprints on the screen!.
Pros: Comfortable to Operate, Great Features, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound, Simple Controls
Summary: What a great product. Have been very happy with it. Only problem is that the battery life does not outlast the disk space so it is probably not worth getting an extra card unless you want to store your videos on the camera itself. Also, the joystick provided does not function as well. The screen should've been touch screen.
Summary: I love the camera, have used it for a variety of things like shooting in snow, and playing tennis, also I love the camera light, it's small, but gets the job done. the only downfall is, when shooting without any other sound, the camera clicks get recorded.
Summary: This is very simple to use and transfer to your computer. It is so easy if you have a Mac. I was worried that it may not be compatible, but it works perfectly. It is also great to have both HD and flash. You can separate to film different subjects. I am very happy with my new camcorder.
