Canon HF100

 

Canon's flash-based high-definition camcorder has lots of manual features

Stunning high-definition video resolution, unsurpassed image clarity and colour, comes packed with manual features

No inbuilt memory, no memory card in sales package, drab design

The HF100 is one of the best camcorders in its price range. Offering exceptionally sharp video and an extensive array of manual features, it will suit amateurs and enthusiasts both. However, sticklers for value should pick up the 32-gigabyte HF11...

Canon Vixia HF S100 review: Canon Vixia HF S100

 

Canon Vixia HF S100

Excellent video quality and performance; nicely designed interface; fast battery charging.

No eye-level viewfinder; expensive; lens cover rattles when closed.

An excellent flash-based prosumer HD camcorder, you may nevertheless pass on the Canon Vixia HF S100 because it lacks an eye-level viewfinder. It's probably a better buy than the identical--but more expensive, because it has 32GB built-in memory--Vixia...

Canon Vixia HF100 review: Canon Vixia HF100

 

Canon Vixia HF100

Excellent video quality; fast focus; compact, attractive, and comfortable design.

Wind filter not as dependable as previous Canon models; manual focus pretty useless.

One of a pair of Canon's first flash-based camcorders, the Canon Vixia HF100, delivers excellent HD video quality and performance in a tiny package.

Canon HF100

 

Cheaper than the HF10, although you need to factor in the cost of storage cards

As with the HF10, the 1920 x 1080 maximum resolution provides enough data for editing and playing back footage on large HDTVs, and the high-quality lens produces bright and crisp images free from colour distortion. The camera is also extremely...

Good

 

It is fairly easy to use the basic functions - ie recording and then playing it back. We have also figured out how to play it back on the tv and a digital photoframe. So far a good quality camcorder.

Canon is a good, reputable and trusted brand. It is small and compact, light to carry. We liked the idea of the SD-Card.

The battery life doesn't last too long, it needs to be recharged regularly. I've found that if I use it for say 10 - 15 minutes, then turn it off and put it away for a week or so, when I get it out next it is low on battery and requires recharging...

Excellent

 

Best value high-def, flash memory video camera. Comes with only 8G SD-card but larger SD-card prices are falling all the time.

Full 1920x1080 high-definition video, compact-flash storage (no DVD, no tape, no HDD)

AVCHD format isn't widely supported yet, slow downloading high-def video from camera to PC via USB
