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 @@@@@.
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.
