I did not liked because this was not described in the offer

Luiz Fernando Abreu, Amazon
10 November 2014
  • Summary: The item was delivered without box, without manual, without the stripe for the hand, without the SD card. In other words, ok, the camera was working, but was stripped from everything. I did not liked because this was not described in the offer. Next time I will buy a new product instead of used.

Small, good price, but format is downfall!

Blair Phillip Landry, Amazon
18 April 2009
  • Summary: Its small, cheap (I bought it for $250), but the format makes it a little bit of a pain. Which is very valuable to me. You can just rename the file from .mod to .mpg. But, it gets annoying to have to do that, while other camcorders put them as .mpg to start.

Bit disappointed with Canon

Pepe, Amazon
28 September 2008
  • Summary: I bought a JVC Everio GZ-MG155 about one year ago, and was never completely satisfied with the image quality, it was not as sharp as I expected. I decided to give a try with the Canon FS100 since all my digital still cameras had been Canon and I loved the images and colors they produce.

Guy Serle's MyMac.com review

Tim Robertson "Publisher MyMac", Amazon
21 August 2008
  • Summary: I've been avoiding buying a new camcorder to replace the 8 year old DVC tape unit for awhile now. There were plenty of tempting offerings, but none matched the feature set and price point that I was looking for until I happened upon Canon's FS100 model at an Apple Store.

Small, Handy, Quick - Needs better Stabilization and Low Light

J "tech head dc", Amazon
29 June 2008
  • Summary: The reviews I read on this are a little too generous. It's all right, but not spectacular. Mine is a replacement for a high-definition HV-20 that I share with my in-laws. I can never get my hands on it, so was hoping for something inexpensive, all-digital with good qualilty.

make that 3.5 stars

  • Summary: Update 05.18.2008: Contrary to first impressions (below) this camcorder is capable of remarkable video quality - even in EZ mode. Example: I shot a jackrabbit from more than 200 feet. Resulting video is sharp enough to see it blink.

  • Summary: My first video camera since vhs. Removed cds from box and tryed to load. Image Mixer 3 SE would not accept serial number of camera and therefore aborted install. Called Canon Tech support on Friday. Said I would get a call on Monday.

Good at the time

Mr. Na Cavalho "Nick C", Amazon
17 June 2014
  • Summary: Good when I purchased in 2009, wouldn't bother nowadays (2014). Pretty much had 0 image stabilization so unless you where on a tripod, everything you filmed was a blurry mess.

Canon FS100 - Good little camcorder

swanaldo, Ciao
28 December 2010
  • Excerpt: With the kids growing up fast, I decided to invest in a camcorder to capture those special moments. A bit of market research led to a choice between Canon and Sony. I have always owned Canon still cameras, both film and digital, so this model seemed the logical choice for me.
  • Pros: Small size, ease of use, looks good .
  • Cons: Picture quality isn't as good as I'd hoped .
