CRAPPY WARRANTY SERVICE - LIKE CROOKS

J. Kim "music enthusiast", Amazon
8 February 2010
  • Summary: I read about others having a lens fade to black problem, and sure enough within the year. When you drop something to a hard floor, the LCD cracks; here, just bumping into something while you just carry the camera will fade to black on this first release Beta for flash memory cards. The DVD AVCHD cam has kept its price range.

Good Unit but has a devastating single point failure

Amazon
6 July 2009
  • Summary: The camera itself is really quite good, with proper lighting the unit is capable of recording high quality stills and moving footage. The microphone is also above average. Essentially this is a really good unit, but it is susceptible to an extremely devastating single point failure. If the ac adapter breaks the unit essentially becomes an expensive paper weight.

"CANON FS100 & Pixela Image Mixer 3SE 2.0 Software"

VIXKEY, CNET
9 March 2009
  • Pros: Great digital camcorder, IF ONLY I COULD TRANSFER IMAGES TO MY COMPUTER!
  • Cons: CANON has partnered with Pixela and give the purchaser the Pixela Image Mixer 3SE 2.0 Software to upload photos. ANY FS100 with serial number starting with 802 DOES NOT WORK, therefore, you can not upload pictures!

I got stuck when it came to moving the movie off the camera

lg27, Amazon
25 January 2009
  • Summary: I really liked this camera for shooting video. It worked fine and I was easily able to figure it out quickly. Then the world came crashing down when I tried to get the video off of the camera. I am a teacher trying to use the video to earn my national board certification. I do not need to do anything fancy, just stick 15 minutes of solid, unedited video onto a dvd. The software runs ridiculously slow on my PC.

low quality pictures

C. Climer, Amazon
11 January 2009
  • Summary: It might just be a difference between flash memory camcorders and camcorders that record on discs, but the quality of picture (especially still pictures) is very low for this item. I would not recommend this item, you are better off with a regular camera that takes video or a disc recorder.

User Review

Philip Moran, Cnet.co.uk
9 December 2010
  • Summary: The standard definition is just VGA. The .MOD format has to be changed to .MPG and the widescreen flag set before it can be edited or played with some software players. The sound is however excellent. Low light performance is very poor. Handling is good. Some cheap digital cameras perform better than this for half the price!
  • Pros: Looks the business, but its only skin deep!
  • Cons: Picture quality is poor, worse than my Mini DV it replaces.

Potential never fulfilled

Dr. George, Amazon
26 March 2009
  • Summary: This should be an excellent camera, but we were dissapointed. It is very light and easy to use, but the picture quality is bad. The focus is very slow to adapt and when panning, the image when played back, jumps accross the screen in stages with horizontal break lines. I can only imagine that there was a fault or that the 1 Mpix CCD is just not upto the job.

Camera nicht schlecht, aber nach einem Jahr und 3 Monaten defekt.

Gerhard, Amazon
5 July 2010
  • Summary: Die Camera ist nicht schlecht, schaltet aber seit dem letzten Akkuladen nicht mehr ein. Da mit 15 Monaten die 12 monatige Garantie bereits abgelaufen ist und der Canonservice eine Kulanzreperatur ablehnt wandert das Ding wohl auf den Müll.
