"Great image, output a problem"

javair, CNET
8 January 2009
  • Pros: Image quality, no motor sound
  • Cons: Outputting your High Definition video to media is quite difficult for a techie, and practically impossible for a novice consumer.

"careful if you have an older mac"

berniejk, CNET
15 September 2008
  • Pros: size & ease of use
  • Cons: to my dismay, found that the SDHC flash card and my Mac G5, just 4 years old, are not a team. camera needs an intel-based Mac; if not, the Mac cannot read the card. no where does canon warn of this

Almost perfect, except for full HD (FXP) mode

JZ, Amazon
13 July 2008
  • Summary: Bought HF100 from Amazon based on the review. Also bought the Transcend 16GB SDHC Class 6 for HF100. I don't want to repeat all the good comments about HF100 which I agree with them all. I'm really upset by one big problem I discovered, not sure whether it's because I have a bad copy of HF100 or else.

HF100 experience of a first-time camcorder owner/user

Kevin Collins "http://liquidcycles.com", Amazon
9 June 2008
  • Summary: As a computer savvy photographer buying my first camcorder, my experience with the Canon HF100 is quite mixed The quality/color/resolution/etc of the video is surprisingly good. Unfortunately, you can only take short clips using full quality/resolution because importing the video is very slow, and exporting high-resolution video after you're done editing is slow as well.

Gute Kamera mit schwachem Zubehör

D. Mihm, Amazon
2 July 2008
  • Summary: Zuerst mal muss ich sagen, dass ich mit der Kamera an sich sehr zufrieden bin. Die Bildschärfe ist spitzenmäßig, der Ton gut und auch bei schwachem Licht hält sich das Bildrauschen in einem akzeptablem Rahmen. Artefakte sieht man allenfalls bei sehr dunklen Szenen. Leider finde ich aber, dass der automatische Weißabgleich nicht ganz perfekt gelungen ist. Besonders im Schatten und bei Kunstlicht wirken die Farben etwas blass und Gesichter wirken etwas gräulich.
