Great camera for for the money!

mjfalvey77, Ebay

  • Summary: I bought this camcorder as a 4th (HF S) series HD capture device for shooting weddings. I love the 8.0MP full HD CMOS sensor with a large lens that allows more light than a consumer camera and provides great video footage. With enough light I can capture good quality still pictures from my video footage for art on DVD covers using my Sony Vegas Pro software.

Canon VIXIA HF S100 Camcorder

cal-mobile, Ebay
4 December 2010
  • Summary: One of the best flash-based consumer camcorders in it's class. The video and still picture quality of this 8 mega-pixel camcorder are impressive. Colors appear true-to-life and the photos are sharp and clear. The camera responds to light well and the manual adjustments are handy when filming night scenes or when in very bright light. The external stereo microphone jack is also a plus. The 10X optical zoom is sufficient for capturing most events.

High on quality, low on battery and features

  • Summary: I am a camcorder amateur, so forgive my inability to describe with certainty and exact terminology what I am writing about. I have certainly kept the reality that I am new to this type of device in my mind as I A) worked with the camera, and B) now write this review. Some cons: The most significant issue I encountered was the field of vision of the camera lens (I suppose this is the focal length, the millimeter size of the lens).

Very Nice Prosumer Camera

Ashley R. Barber, Amazon

  • Summary: I have had nothing but fun with this camera. In bright areas and with good lighting this camera is simply amazing, and even in a pitch black room the small light lets you see in complete darkness. There are so many features I can't seem to put the camera down. This is my first flash type memory camera and transferring your movies to the computer has never been easier. I absolutely love this thing.

Very Good Camcorder

  • Summary: The camcorder is very easy to use. I've only played with the photo-taking mode a little, but the images don't look good indoors. As for the video, it looks very clear. A major drawback is that the provided editing software doesn't work on my computer, which has Vista 64 bit installed. I suspected that it wouldn't work before buying it so I'm not hugely disappointed now.

just received, looks great so far

S. Martin, Amazon
21 December 2009
  • Summary: I just received this camera. In researching it I saw several complaints about how it was difficult to transfer video files to a computer. Well, I know what they mean now. It took a while to figure out, but it is not difficult. The problem is the instructions and disc labeling are misleading. The still image software is labeled "Digital Video" software, but doesn't work with the videos at all.

EXCEPTIONAL VIDEO QUALITY

G. F. T. "fredth", Amazon
18 November 2009
  • Summary: I have a Canon HV20 that takes very good video,but the difference in the HF S100 to me is the processing of the video to DVD and also not having to wind and rewind tapes! I would rate the video about the same as the HV 20 but on my IMAC a lot faster and much easier to process over to DVD's. If you do not edit your video's I recommend the DW 100 Canon burner.
