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.

Disappointed

Frank "FB", Amazon
23 May 2010
  • Summary: I've been very disappointed with my Canon FS21. The drivers are still not up on their web site and I have not been able to find any articles. Specifically, it has just been a huge chore to download the video files (pictures work just fine) to my Vista machine. I do some IT work, so I set up an XP machine and thought I'd be done with it, but it is still a hassle. Working with the software is most of my problem.

This Is A Great Camcorder

Charles Rinehart "neonguy528", Amazon
19 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.

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.

  • Summary: I got this camera in an emergency for my disney family vacation. Not sure until i recieved this puppy. Once I saw it out of the box. I was impressed with size and ease of use. video quality is good. but photo quality is not that great unless u have a very good light. all in acceptable. 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.

***BUENA***

  • Excerpt: ***Hola, soy xavier, el de tres opiniones mas abajo. El motivo de opinar otra vez es rectificar esa primera opinion en la que no hago justicia a esta camara. REsulta, que me pasó como a mucha gente les pasa con las tecnologias, y es que no leemos los manuales. Resulta que antes saber como iba todo, toquee varios ajustes probando cosas, como ajustes manuales de obturacion, contrastes de blancos y demas y el resultado sobre todo en interiores era espantoso.
