Deer Videos

deer hunter, Amazon
1 August 2011
  • Summary: Bought this Canon FS21 over a year ago to make videos from my deer blind. Bought it because of the Consumer Reports ratings (#1). Read reviews on web and most stated difficulties transfering videos to home computers. I should have paid attention to the reviews on editing videos and transfering to home computer. To this day, have not been able to achieve either. The software that comes with the camera is a total piece of @@@@@.

Canon FS21 flash memory camcorder

avpcsales, Ebay
11 October 2010
  • Summary: The Canon FS21 (and FS20, FS200) is a great value in a standard definition digital camcorder. Besides offering convenient flash SD card storage and internal memory, it offers a slightly wider angle view than most other models, of more use than 50X zoom now appearing in some models. Digital output is via USB 2.0 connection, so transfer to DVD and storage is fast.

This Is A Great Camcorder

Charles Rinehart "neonguy528", Amazon
18 February 2010
  • Summary: I was finally able to buy the Canon FS21 in December 09. I did my research with reviews and watching test videos from other users. The quality and color is great for standard definition. I like everything about this product. Easy to use and shoots great video. Unlike what a reviewer said, the battery CAN be charged when attached to the camcorder. This is a quality product. I would highly recommend the FS21. And I will be buying another Canon model soon.

Noisy x 2 = camera returned

John Dallas Bowers, J&R
19 December 2009
  • Summary: Without an HD television or a high-powered computer for editing those humongous files, I really thought I needed to get a standard-def camcorder, and this Canon looked like it would fit me nicely. In many respects it did.The problem was noise: in the low-light filming (very grainy) and in the internal operating sounds that were a constant (and intrusive) presence on the audio track.The manual even acknowledges the second issue, suggesting the use of an external mic when...

Very good for what it is.

Uncle Dubs, Amazon
17 November 2009
  • Summary: First off, let's be clear, this is a standard definition camera. Even thought Cannon's high-definition camcorders (HF) series are within about $100 of the price of this camera, I decided to stay with standard definition (for now) for the following reasons: 1. I wanted ease of transfer and an easy ability to edit and burn DVD's of my videos without having to upgrade my whole set up to handle the HD recording format. 2.

Great buy... Solid product

Billy Tucker "Perpetual Student", Amazon
13 October 2009
  • Summary: I have used the Canon FS21 to record several soccer matches and a family gathering since I purchased it several weeks ago. I have not been disappointed with any aspect of this camera. The manual was quickly read, and if I were to be honest with myself I would have to admit that there are features on this camera that I have not yet used or understand. However, that has not prevented me from creating several very satisfactory DVDs of high school soccer tournaments.

I did not do a big research yet with software and all.But copied all the vidoes to my sdhc card and downloaded to usb drive and uploaded to youtube with no problem.
