Comparing different Canon FS models

D. Kampfhenkel, Amazon
22 June 2009
  • 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). By comparing to other top models on the Canon website, this model is arguably the best model that Canon makes. Use the link below to do side-by-side comparisons of various Canon camcorders on the official Canon Website. [...

Canon FS11

Ghanshyam Patel, Amazon
30 April 2009
  • 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. After using the camera, I found that I have a shaky hand, so I also got a tripod ($21 over Amazon) and the camera/tripod was used for my wife's babyshower. It got the job done!

Perfectly Functional, Easy to Use, Compact

AG, Amazon
21 February 2009
  • Summary: I am not a techie, so for information on specs, you'll have to scroll on and read someone else's review. What I can tell you is that I'm an ameture photographer with limited means who wanted something simple, functional, and compact for my purposes and that's exactly what I got with the FS11. The video camera was bought as a companion for a Nikon D80, so I cannot speak for the photography function as I never use it.

Enjoying My FS11

Jeffrey Peck, Amazon
27 January 2009
  • 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 the Canon FS11. Then Amazon discounted the FS11, and I'm so glad I got the price drop because this camera is awesome.

Good video camera, not so good digital camera

R. Martinez, Amazon
19 January 2009
  • 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. The benefit is that this camera is MUCH smaller and lighter. It also powers on very quickly so you don't miss as many recording opportunities.

  • Summary: Only complaint I have is the software it comes with. Not that it doesn't work, AND I've nly used it twice now to download and store clips on my CP harddrive, so maybe I'll get used to it. BUT it is not just a "turn key" system that you look and say "oh, that's how you do it." Seems I have to play around with it. HOWEVER. I would highly recommend this device to anyone.

Small...no, tiny.

N. Paul, Amazon
12 May 2008
  • 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. It comes with a USB cable, an AC adapter power cord, HDMI cables, two software discs and a small remote.

Good, pretty good

L. S. C. Ltd "Nick", Amazon
1 May 2009
  • 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!) The one problem for basic video production is the sound quality, but I understand that this is the norm for camcorders, it'd take accessories on any camcorder to get a professional "sound".
