Crappy video camera, cool featues

Faustus "Faustus", Amazon
30 July 2009
  • Summary: For the price you'd think they actually focus on making a decent camera sensor. I mean all the features like zoom, different camera modes, and the SD recording are great but the one thing it fails in is what it was made to do, that being recording video. Low light sucks, and for a cheaper camera like the Flip I have seen 10 fold better quality. You need to either have lots of light or sunlight to take decent film.

Software is beyond bad

Alsand, Amazon
10 May 2009
  • Summary: Like other, let me just say that the ImageMixer software is so completely unusable that it is reason alone to avoid this camera. Too bad, because the camera works well. But the movies it produces are in an odd format and can't be read or edited by some other software packages. I use Canon software almost every day for still photography, but the bundled software ruins this product. Don't but it until Canon comes up with a better solution.

Mac users, beware...

John Buckingham "Smokey Raku-Potts", Amazon
17 March 2009
  • Summary: Canon really dropped the ball on this one. As other posters have noted, the FS SD flash memory series of camcorders output in an oddball file format that's not readable by QuickTime. My hopes of being able to pop the FS100's SD card into my card reader and just click & drag my shots into iMovie immediately went down in flames - it was for that seemingly easy mode of import that we bought 2 of the bloody cameras in the first place (for use in a college A-V department,...

Grainy and lots of noice at low light

Raju Cherian "R Cherian", Amazon
21 June 2008
  • Summary: I bought this camcorder because of the Canon's reputation for poor light performance, but I am disappointed, too grainy and lots of noice at low lit situations. Avoid this if you want to do filming indoors. good points are , very good quality at ideal lighting conditions Zoom is very good( I can't find much quality difference at say 1X and at 45X).

  • Excerpt: Покупая видеокамеру FS100, вы должны понимать, что купили удобную игрушку, которая хорошо работает, но качества, как ни крути ручки, не добьётесь. Надеясь на неё и сняв видео, потом, при монтаже, вы разочаруетесь. Но как бинокль с видео-фото фиксацией она полностью оправдана. Ну и вообще зафиксировать какой-нибудь факт ,не требующий качества, сойдёт...
  • Pros: Оптическая сила. Возможность запечатлеть на фото и видео объекты, расположенные далеко от вас, с качеством, немного лучше, чем у телефона. Удобство использования, зарядка, изымание полученных файлов.
  • Cons: Плохая видеокамера. Годится только для запечатления нечеткого изображения, расположенного далеко от вас, т.к. оптическая сила велика. Для видео нормального качества не годится никак, убедился сам на опыте.

  • Excerpt: Данная модель меня разочаровала.
  • Pros: - Маленькая - Лёгкая - Очень удобно держать в руке
  • Cons: - Люфт крышки карты памяти и аккумулятора - Ужасные шумы - Хроматические аберрации заметны очень и очень - Качественное фото можно получить только сфотографировав один и тот же объект 10 раз подряд. Но это видео, а не фото камера. - Качество видео на единицу. Ужас.

toniko, Ciao

  • Summary: ha un forte rumore di fondo dato dal meccanismo interno che viene ripreso dal microfono. QUando c'è silenzio si sente moltissimo, non parliamo poi di quando si fa uno zoom...!
