Excerpt: I got this camera for Christmas and so far we love it! It is very easy to use! The picture quality is very nice, and the price was reasonable. The viewing screen can be fliped to the subject can see the video, however, when you do this if you are not facing the screen, you cannot see what is being filmed. My only true dislike about this camera is that most of the manual is on a pdf, so anytime you want to look something up you need to go to the pdf file on the computer.
Excerpt: The Canon Vixia HF100 is a great consumer camcorder. It records in 1920x1080 and has an incredible picture. It works great as a camcorder for capturing video, and the still image quality is also fairly good (comparable to a midrange digital camera). It is a very user friendly camera as far as recording and picture taking goes.
Simply one of the best consumer camcorders available.

Excerpt: Great camcorder and takes good pictures as well. I finally got rid of the old MiniDv camcorder and tapes and replaced with this flash version HD camera from Canon. Now just carry small SD cards instead of small tapes. Great for vacations, parties and events. I think I actually have the HFS 100 and can't remember what exactly the differences were but I think the HFS 100 offered a bit more than the HF 100.
