Summary: Nice camcorder, but it malfunctioned two years after purchase - even though it was used very little during that period of time. It began zooming in on its own without the operator touching the zoom control. Canon replaced the zoom control and charged a flat fee of $250 for the repair.
Summary: I was looking for a video camera that used the SDHC card for its files with the hopes that I would be able to simply insert the card into the SDHC card into the slot in my laptop as I do with my digital camera and simply transfer files. Not so easy - computer does not reconginize the format.
Summary: Basically, it works as advertised. But with a few hiccups. The image stabilization is poor. Combined with the light weight of the camera, it's hard to hold without jitter, practically impossible at maximum zoom. Walking with the camera makes the picture jump all over the place.

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...
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.
