Quite good - white balance can be a bit dodgy - night photos a struggle
8 October 2013
Summary: Fantastic camera/video camera. Nothing will replace a great SLR, but for a dual purpose camera, this is fantastic. The video quality is great, the photos are very nice as well. My only issue is that night photos are pretty tough.
Great camera! Image stabilization works great! 2 SD slots easy to get to.

Summary: Great Picture Quality. Good size fits nice in my hand. Make sure to get the big battery with the external charger. The knock off from ebay works great for around $18. You will probably want a wide angle converter lens like the Canon WD-H58 or Raynox HD-6600 Pro 58mm to give you around a 30mm focal...
Summary: This camcorder is the best I have ever bought. You can't beat this in every area. The only gripe I have is that it was hard to assemble. I had to have my friend come over and help me put the battery in.
Summary: Wanted an affordable camera with manual focus, good low light, and 1080p resolution. This is a great camera and it works perfect. You can even do some semi-slow motion since it records at 60i (by default), and get a cool effect. It also records in other frame rates such as 24p.
Summary: The HFS200, HFS20, and HFS21 are the best options for the low budget indie filmmaker. That is until the next batch of Canon camcorders are released soon. Here is why the HFS200 is an ideal choice: (1) Frame rate options. You get true 23.98.
Summary: This is my first video camera. I was looking for video camera whose auto mode should give me great performance and this camera really gives great results. HD 1080p (MXP) with native 24 frames per second Video quality is excellent. It captures all colors in great detail.
Summary: It's a relativelty expensive camcorder but we love this product. The image quality is superb and it's very easy to operate. It's compact size and light weight is a real plus when shooting scenes over several minutes.
Summary: I've been waiting for the right time to purchase my new Canon HD camcorder and now was the time to do this. The last camcorder that I owned was a small Canon Z10 (I think that what it was). Back then I had to use tape and the DVD version just came out.
