Canon Legria HF S200

 

Excellentes fonctions manuelles, deux slots SDHC, interface bien pensée

Menu de l'écran tactile mal conçu, faible autonomie, défauts sur le mode basse qualité vidéo, incompatible SDXC, relativement cher

Dernier né de la famille Legria, le Canon HF S200 propose de belles prestations pour un tarif supérieur à ses confrères. En vaut il la chandelle ?

Canon Legria FS200: winziger SD-Camcorder mit gigantischem Zoom

 

Mit einer maximalen Brennweite von 1695 Millimetern bewegt sich der SD-Camcorder Legria FS200 in den gleichen Regionen wie Teleskope für Hobbyastronomen. Im Vergleich dazu stehen Canons Full-HD-Modelle mit einer Höchstleistung von 592,5 Millimetern...

kompaktes Gehäuse, 41-facher optischer Zoom, Mikrofon- und Kopfhöreranschluss

kein optischer Bildstabilisator, mittelprächtiger Akku, keine stärkere Batterie verfügbar

Canon FS200 (blue)

 

The Canon FS200 is a standard-definition camcorder with a 37x optical zoom in a very compact body. That's not as megazoomy as Panasonic's H80 or Sony's SR47 , but that's not necessarily a bad thing, especially since there's no optical image...

Ultracompact design; 37x optical zoom; mic, headphone jacks.

No optical image stabilization; no extended-life battery option.

Though its video isn't perfect, the Canon FS200 is one of the better standard-definition consumer camcorders available.

Canon FS200 Camcorder Review

 

The FS200 is a stylish little standard definition camcorder from Canon that costs around $299 MSRP. The FS200 records to SD/SDHC memory cards, offers a 37x optical zoom, and is one of the best all-around standard definition cams we've tested this year.

We liked the Canon FS200 ($299 MSRP) enough to give it Runner Up in our 2009 CamcorderInfo.com Select Awards for Best Standard Definition Camcorder. The top prize went to the JVC GZ-MG670, however, as its HD upconversion feature gave it a strong edge...

Canon FS200 First Impressions Camcorder Review

 

The Canon FS200 is a minor upgrade to last year's FS100. Yet the extreme portability, colorful options, and mic and headphone jacks will likely win it some fans. The FS200 records to memory card only, while the step-up FS21 and FS22 offer the card slot...

Canon FS200

 

There's been a lot of progress in the field of camcorders in a short time. The cameras in this category, while fairly basic when compared to high definition cameras, would be the most advanced cameras of a very short time ago. The Canon FS200 is among...

The Canon FS200 has a 37x optical zoom along with a 2.7-inch widescreen LCD display

This camcorder shoots decent photos but definitely not photos of the highest-quality

For users who do not care about high-definition, this camcorder is worthy of consideration.

Canon FS200 camcorder

 

The Canon FS200 is a flash memory-based camcorder that records standard-definition video to SD/SDHC memory cards.

Good video for specs and asking price, plenty of advanced features including external audio, compact size

Poor still image mode, menu could be a little more user-friendly

The Canon FS200 is a serviceable standard-def camcorder for beginners and cash-strapped videographers. It strikes a good balance between advanced features and affordability.

Canon Legria FS200 review

 

Although its video isn't perfect, the Canon Legria FS200 is one of the better standard-definition consumer camcorders available. We'd like to see mechanical image stabilisation included, but, as long as you don't expect hi-def video quality from a...

Ultra-compact design ; 37x optical zoom ; Mic, headphone jacks

No optical image stabilisation ; No extended-life battery option

One other feature worth mentioning is the video-snap mode. Turn it on and, every time you press the record button, the FS200 captures 4 seconds of video. The clips can then be edited together to create a movie for people with short attention spans....

Product Specifications

With the FS200's Canon exclusive features such as Canon 41x advanced zoom and Canon's DIGIC DV II image processor, combined with a 680k CCD image sensor, image stabilization and a 2.7" widescreen LCD and Canon's quick charge feature - you've got a flash memory camcorder that's hard to beat, very affordable and still unmistakably Canon.
