Does NOT work natively with iMovie on the Mac

ERIC L, Amazon
1 September 2009
  • Summary: Contrary to other reviews that say this camera works with a Mac and the iMovie "automatically" imports the video from the camera, actually neither the Canon HF100 camera nor the SDHC card from it are recognized by iMovie '09 running on my fairly recent 2008 MacBook with latest operating system(even though they ARE recognized by the computer).

The brave new world of High Tech, High Def

  • Summary: If used properly, you can get superb images from this camera. The tiny size means poor ergonomics for anyone wanting artistic or professional results. Unbeatable for the price and size.
  • Pros: It's affordable high definition. Impressive image quality.
  • Cons: It's a consumer gadget, so it lacks the great controls of more expensive cameras.

Good price for what you get.

Morgan Kopani "Mo", Amazon

  • Summary: I did a LOT of research before settling on this camera. That said, I had very high expectations... Video Quality: I wasn't quite as impressed as I thought I would be. I watched the demo video on Canon's web site and I thought it looked amazing. Don't get me wrong, its very nice compared to standard def camcorders but there are pros and cons to the video quality.

Time to upgrade to an HD flash-based camcorder

  • Summary: If you need the image quality, then this is a good choice. If you only need an entry level, then consider the FS10 and it's superior portability and handling.
  • Pros: Image quality, optical stabilization, size
  • Cons: Grip comfort, low life for included battery

Almost There

SpeedRacer, Amazon
9 September 2008
  • Summary: I purchased this camera to record my Football Teams games with. The camera itself is very nice, I do not have one single complaint, and battery life is pretty good. I do have a huge complaint with the crappy software that comes with this camera, it is junk. I have been searching high and low for some decent software, and it does not seem to exist.

Best AVCHD bang for the buck!

Travis Woodland, Amazon
14 July 2008
  • Summary: Review of Amazon's Customer Service: I received my HF100 very quickly. It was backordered and shipped out (I assume) the same day that more came into stock. I paid for one day shipping (3.99 with prime), and received my order the day after Amazon got more in stock. Great job at a great price! Review of HF100: By FAR, this camcorder is the best I have used of any solid state memory camcorder or hard drive-based camcorder.

  • Pros: Truly excellent picture quality, convenience of recording to SDHC memory cards
  • Cons: Awkward ergonomics, poor Optical Image Stabilization, lack of manual focus Poor editing software

HF100 vs HV20: observations on video quality trade-offs and editing/distribution

Hans H. Roehrig "bubba", Amazon
30 June 2008
  • Summary: I have a one year old HV20 and a 2 month old HF100. First and foremost, I care about video quality, but convenience is also important. Each year, we go to the Fraser Valley in Colorado - an area surrounded by pine-forest covered peaks. Last year, we took a ton of footage with the HV20. Did the same this year with the HF-100. Three fundamental things about the video quality strike me in comparing similair footage.

Not perfect but perfectly good

M. Miller "DOHCCOM", Amazon
23 June 2008
  • Summary: Have been doing photography for almost 40 years. I started at 12 with my own dark room but no darkroom needed with the new digital camera/video cam. Two weeks and all is well. Be advised this camera is tiny. Almost too tiny but that does make it easy to drag it along with you. It is light as well. The good: Great optical zoom capabilities. Recording on flash is easier and better than I thought.
