The envy of friends

by on 9/1/2008

This is undoubtedly about the smallest full feature camcorder on the market. Canon has beat the snot out of all the competition. I'm still learning how to do some of the functions. I'm taking the Canon FS 10 camcorder on vacation to Hawaii in just a few days. I would rather have this model than a cam in another format. The flash memory format has no moving parts in the recording mechanism. Also the dual memory means that i can move photo's or video from internal memory to sd card at any time. Also If purchased, memory is unlimited with multiple sd cards.

Very good camera

This video camera has no moving parts (other than the focus and zoom motors), so this video camera should hold up for our school much better than previous MiniDV camcorders. Very compact!
