So far so good

  • Excerpt: I just got the Canon FS100 a couple days ago. So far I am in love. It even has an easy button... how great is that?? I just tried it out last night in the living room and with a low light, the light on the camera was quite sufficient. I will have to try it outside in pitch black one time and see what the light does with that. The picture is clear. For someone with moderate computer skills it is easy to get the videos on the computer.

A great entry-level SD camcorder with amazing zoom capability.

  • Excerpt: The Canon FS100 was my first digital camcorder. I'm mostly happy with it, considering what it is. It's not HD, but still takes good quality video. It's also very lightweight, just over nine ounces. I love the LCD display. It's very clear, and also has an adjustable digital grid marker, which is awesome for composing shots. It also shoots in 16:9 widescreen, which looks very professional, considering. The menu is easy to work with.

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.

"Very happy and durable"

Doloma, CNET
13 June 2009
  • Pros: Very durable camera, use it on my bike, went down a hill, opened LCD and started shooting at once! Very light for my needs. The price is good.
  • Cons: Zooming is not so soft and jumps in big steps. Had a charger failure and from what i heard, it is a common problem. Very sensitive zoom button that will start and continue zooming on its own. Does not reset the zoom when power off and on.

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".
