Canon LEGRIA HF S200

 

If you are looking for a really great camcorder that is full of features and provides everything you need to take fantastic quality video and so much more, then look no further than the beautiful new Canon LEGRIA HF S200.

Overall as you can see this camcorder has all the features and specification you would expect from a high quality camcorder but the cost does reflect the number of different features that this camcorder has. The Canon HF S200 does in fact prove to be...

Great Video, Bad Software

 

I'm pretty certain the bad software and conversion issues are not limited to this brand as they all seem to be playing games with consumers right now.

Records great quality video. Flexible storage

The battery takes forever to charge and dies very quickly. Canon charges two arms and half a leg for another battery ; They wasted money on legacy SD cables (RCA,component) when they could have given you a superior HDMI cable instead ; Software is...

Its Good. Its a Camcorder.

 

No EVF which I am sure few care. Camcorders have evolved and EVF's were on VHS camcorders because LCD screens were very expensive to manufacture. People complain about no evf and no sdxc support. Since a Firmware update sdxc is now supported. there is...

I purchased this because I had sold my older HF S10 and later regretted not having the same quality video camera. This camera supports SDXC memory cards with the firmware update at the canon website. Two SDXC cards when available/affordable would make...

I had to wait a year before it went on sale and shaved off $300 from retai, I paid under $600 but i'm sure before its no longer available they'll go as low as 500-550. If the screen breaks you lose control of the camera this would be a sad day for...

Canon VIXIA HF S200 1/2.6" CMOS 3.5" 922K Touch LCD 10X Optical Zoom HD Flash Memory Camcorder

 

Note that this model does not have a viewfinder. You need to step up to the Vixia HFS21 to get a viewfinder. This point can be easy to miss. Make sure that you consider the requirement for a fast, late model PC to handle high definition video. Make...

All the advertised features work as advertised, and work well ; Large, 3.5" touch screen ; I am very happy with this product

Included software has minimal functionality. Plan on purchasing better 3rd party software ; Records in AVCHD format only, high definition only. Conversion to standard definition ("DVD" or "WEB" MPG) can be done in camera from SD card "A" slot to SD...

For beginners in film, or home-movie making, this is EXCELLENT. Works flawlessly Many different settings. Extreme high quality. Does not have night vision, and make sure you have software to edit the MTS (AVHD video file) because most software will not...

Canon Legria HF S200

 

Custom dial, set it to Focus, Aperture and Exposure ; Records up to 24Mb/s (3MB/s) ; Functions well in low light, little noise though contrast is compromised ; Snapshots while recording (1920x1080 - 16:9) and even better when not recording (3264 x 2448...

Zooms only with the dial at the top ; Take photo" button is a little out of a perfect reach ; Auto-switch mode is useless ; Touch screen isn't fully fluent, but is very responsive compared to many others ; No infrared vision ; Microphone jack is same...
