For $250 it's ok.

  • Summary: For $250 it's ok, but for 300 or more, brrrr. For ytube ok. Of course software included it's worthless. You download videos then you change file extension to mpeg or avi, and can see it using any player (and for this you don-t need software). For editing you have to look for some software that edits mpeg or avi. Don't even install the software.

Canon FS100 Flash Memory Camcorder

don123, Rate it all!
11 August 2009
  • Summary: I am very much impressed with the cost to performance ratio. I will not say this cam has poor sensitivity to light. Coz it has got all the options like aperture and shutter speed settings usually found in other costlier cams and can be made well use of to produce excellent video. Battery back up is also impressive Overall this has got everything (may be more ) for a medium level camcoder.

Nice little camcorder

D. Munchel, Amazon
22 May 2009
  • Summary: Overall the camera is a good little unit with an exceptional zoom. I was very impressed with the zoom quality. I bought this as a replacement to my previous mini DV tape camcorder that quit recording sound. We simply use it to record family moments so I'm not doing any kind of professional video recording. I do like the idea of having the SD cards vs. a hard drive.

Canan Fs100

Cf, Amazon
22 May 2009
  • Summary: Just got this and here are my 1st impressions. Very small yet feels solid. The test footage so far looks good for standard def video. I just take out the sd card and plug it into my media reader and I am able to import the files. They have a .mod extension so no program on my XP computer can view them. I had read that you can rename them to .avi which i did and was able to play them in windows media player. They looked horrible and all jagged.

Great Camcorder, but Complicated Files

Muriel Hahn, Amazon
21 May 2009
  • Summary: This is a long review because I took a lot of time in researching the camcorder I wanted, so I think my knowledge and use of this thing should be beneficial to SOMEONE out there. I had my eye on this thing before it was out, and saw reviews from some lucky people who got their hands on it before its release. Once I was able to order, Amazon shipped it in a not very well packaged box, but everything worked.

Great little camcorder

R. Muiznieks, Amazon
21 May 2009
  • Summary: My family lives in another country, so I wanted a camcorder to take family videos that I could burn to DVDs and mail to them. I picked the FS100 because of the price, SDHC support, and because it uses MPEG2 and stereo AC3 to encode the video files--meaning you can put them on a video DVD without having to re-encode anything.

Mac users - works well with iMovie '09

Pessex, Amazon
15 May 2009
  • Summary: I bought this back in February to use on a ski trip and have been pretty happy with it. Some points of interest: - Works nicely with iMovie '09 on the Mac. You MUST have the camera plugged into a/c power. Start up iMovie, let it initialize, then connect the FS100 via USB. iMovie will find the camera, and after scanning things will bring up a window to allow you to import "scenes".
