Summary: I ordered this camcorder and was almost sure it would not be compatible with my windows home premiuim vista 64 bit pc, but after going to the Canon FS11 web page I saw that they had serveral downloads and thankfully one of them was for vista 64 bit.
Pros: Good image quality and sound---16GB. internal memory & a SDHC card slot----good battery life----external mic terminal----USB terminal----37x opitcal zoom----- easy to operate----great software with updates.
Cons: Low light could be better and my preference would be for it to be a little larger in size with a larger joystick.
Summary: After looking over the various models of Canon FS series camcorders, the Canon FS 11 appears to be one of the best. Coming with 16 GB of internal memory, this camera will record up to 10 hours and 25 minutes of video (LP - 3 mbps).
Summary: I ordered my camera b/c we will be having a baby in June. It is a nice tiny easy to use camera. I bought it over Amazon b/c it was $150 cheaper then the next best price and the new Canon FS21 was not available.

Summary: When the batteries died on my old Sony Digital8 camcorder I began looking for a replacement camcorder. My chief requirement was a flash drive camcorder. I was first interested in the Panasonic SDR-S7, it was not as capable in most - or even all important features - but was as much as $200 less than...
Summary: When my MiniDV camcorder conked out for the second time I decided it was time to go pure digital and I was either going for a HDD recorder or a flash recorder. This uses the same MPEG4 recording algorithm as the HDD recorders so it has the same video quality; it just records to flash memory.
Summary: I bought this camera for the flash memory part. I really did not want to cary little tapes or cds or extra wires. The camera is small, the size of a toilet paper roll, it fits entirely in the palm of my hand and weighs nothing. The image stabilization is great, I get no shaking or bouncing.
Summary: I bought this camera to film vox pops / shorts for my business. So far it's been easy to use and everything that was promised. I recently met with a professional video company and they said some favourable things (I felt a little camera envy when I saw their version!
