inefficient

M. Spirov, Amazon

  • Summary: it doesn't shut off or even pause recording when you fold the screen closed, because of which we ended up losing the chance to film our wedding due to a run down battery. when you record, the dot is red, but when you pause it is green: this causes confusion as to weather you are actually filming and resulted in the loss of many hours of footage when we thought we were recording. (c'mon guys, everyone knows green means go and red means stop.

i hope amazon let's me return this

  • Summary: Awful, complicated manuals (there are 3 or 4 here, none of them the 'Basics' guide). Glaring omissions, silly repetitions. Average video quality, horrifying still image quality, worse than my phone. Doesn't play well with Mac and Apple. Doesn't show up as a device. Movie files won't transfer without the old 'streaming' method. Movie files are actually in a ".MOD" format on the camera, sorry Canon I've never heard of it.

impossible to use the images

Julliver, Amazon

  • Summary: It's my first camera, Ok I chose a low price one, because I am new to it. I can watch the videos thanks to vlc, but I can not make my film because of the recording format: .MOD. They are few editing software that import it and they cost at least 50£. This is Canon.... I cannot import the images on Imovie or on my wife PC. If you have to check which format a camera record in, before buying one, it is a nightmare for everybody. I will untrust canon for a while now.

impossible to edit video clips due to .mod format

Airline Traveller "Airline Traveller", Amazon

  • Summary: This is a horrible product. I have had a number of camcorders over a number of years and this is the worst. The problem is that it uses a .mod format that seems to be totally incompatible with any video editing software. The software that comes with the camera doesn't seem to be much good either.

Canon FS200 Camcorder

G "Learner", Amazon

  • Summary: I bought Canon FS200 Camcorder a long time ago and it was terrible in term of video and still picture quality. I am dissatisfied to have this camcorder. I have tried to contact Canon in the UK but they ignored me.I do not use this camcorder and I hope that Amazon can help me. I recommend everyone not to buy this camcorder because it is a waste of money. Thank you.

  • Excerpt: О недостатках данной модели:
  • Pros: 1. Размер. Миниатюрность - это хорошо. 2. Хорошая и быстрая фокусировка, но только при макросъёмке. 3. Время работы от аккумулятора.
  • Cons: 1. Ужасное качество видеороликов. 2. Ужасное качество фотографий. 3. Невозможность скопировать видеоролики и фотографии стандартными средствами ОС (Windows XP). 4. Необходимость подключения к сетевому адаптеру для переноса данных на ПК через USB 5. "Безобразный" баланс белого. 6. Действительно неудобное меню, особенно для часто используемых функций. 7. Ужасный и бесполезный встроенный осветитель, если его включить, цвет лиц получается ужасным, слишком белым и неестест...

  • Cons: Отснятое можно просматривать только через установленное ПО. Файлы в дебильном формате. У меня нет дисковода например. ПО с диска не могу. С сайта поддержки не закачать почему-то. Камера для тех кто любит пляски с бубном.

günstig aber fehleranfällig

G. Schiefermüller, Amazon
30 November 2009
  • Summary: Hallo, habe genannten Camcorder gekauft um die Entwicklung meines neugeborenen Sohnes etwas zu dokumentieren. Stelle selbst keine besonderen Ansprüche an Bildqualität und dergleichen. Grundsätzlich finde ich die Kamera als Einsteigermodell ja ganz gelungen. ABER: Es ist leider reiner Zufall ob der eingebaute SD-Slot die Speicherkarte erkennt oder nicht. Habe unzählige Speicherkarten probiert, manchmal geht eine, Tags darauf die selbe wieder nicht.
