Summary: I am enjoying my video experience with Canon VIXIA HFS100 HD. Until recently, I have dedicated all my time to still photography. After experimenting through the years with other major brand name photo equipment, I have found Canon to be my choice.
Summary: There aren't many things, let alone electronic gadgets that I can look at and go, "This thing has never failed me" but this unit fits the bill. I've taken this digital camcorder to Burning Man 3 times, and while the desert destroyed 2 Nikons and 2 Nikkor lenses, I've never had a single problem with...

Summary: I ordered this camcorder around June of 2010 and was pretty excited about it. When I got it it exceeded my expectations. It has a beautiful design and some awesome features. I really like the 24p mode that enables you to shoot scenes with a movie look.
Summary: I bought the camera almost a year ago. All this time I enjoyed both an exceptional video quality and perfect stills. I don't know any other non-professional camera of a similar price tag providing such a successful combination.
Summary: I've been extremely satisfied with the HFS100 camcorder. I did buy additional Transcend 16GB Class 6 SDHC cards, an additional battery pack, Dolica ST-650 tripod, Adorama l-bracket, and a Rode microphone ... but that was all I needed to complete this package to my liking.
Summary: Camera has been great to have over the last year. We've captured a lot of great moments, in HD, of our newborn that we would not have had. Overall, the camera is fairly easy to set up and use.
