A Great Camcorder

Dennis N., Newegg
23 December 2012
  • Pros: I have this camcorder for over 4 years. Still create great HD videos every single time. There is no reason to do an upgrade since 32GB SDHC is plenty of room. SDXC with > 32GB is too big and high risk of memory corruption anyway.
  • Cons: None

  • Summary: This is so much better then my old dvd camcorder, although you need to get an aftermarket program such as sony vegas to import the video, the software that came with it locked up my pc.
  • Pros: Good video, great weight, and fast.
  • Cons: no internal hard drive but the 16GB flash i got works very well. The software that came with it locked up my pc.

Canon HF100

Anonymous, Newegg
31 March 2009
  • Pros: Purchased this camcorder to finally step up to HD from my Canon GL2. WOW! Bright and vivid colors really look great. The controls of the camera, as well as the menus are well layed-out. With a 16GB card (from Newegg) I can record over two hours of 1920x1080 HD. The footage imports into Final Cut ...
  • Cons: Purchased my HF100 for a Spring Break trip to Destin, FL. UPS delivered it the day after we left home, so I didn't get to record vacation footage.

chris j., Newegg
20 March 2009
  • Summary: DO NOT FORGET A MEMORY CARD
  • Pros: Wow, this thing is tiny and sharp. I've used in low light and very satisfied for price/size. Zoom is amazing for such and tiny camera. Joystick is fairly easy and menus were quick to learn. plugged it into my macbook pro and with iLife 08, it was simple to download and edit my videos. Shipped in ...

Why AVCHD? Why no choice?

Donald G., Newegg
8 March 2009
  • Pros: Terrific camera, but software in camera and out is dismal. AVCHD and MTS are tragically flawed and secret. There is minimal control over exposure. There is no metadata. Nobody's PC can play your files well. Batteries cost more than camera and film.
  • Cons: AVCHD is deeply flawed. It succeeds in making something very simple rather complicated for no advantage. But it is documented under NDA. Even Adobe isn't strong enough to get AVCHD right, 20% of files appear flawed in transcode. The included Pixela software DVDs are useless. On the plus side no d...

WHOA HOLD ON A MIN!

David W., Newegg
17 February 2009
  • Summary: Sony Vegas 140 bucks, will edit AVCHD down to 4:3 SD on DVD, wide screen DVD SD, and if you select "make blue ray disk" you don't have to use BR. You can use 4.7-8.5.GB DVDs, you just get shorter movie times. This will give you wide screen HD DVDs, but must be played in a BRay player, or PS3.
  • Pros: This camera is banging. Small enough to fit in my North Face (jacket) but size doesn't matter when it comes to quality. This camera has such high quality, that I've already sold my 3CCD SD model. Great video, great sound, great recording media use!
  • Cons: 1hr/8GB at 1920x1080 means it's very memory hungry, but the 3 other settings (1440x1080) still give you a ton of quality, (8gb/3hours on lowest). Battery life is only about 45-50 mins. The extended life battery (buy elsewhere) works great and gives me about 3 hours.
