Great and simple

 

I bought the camera on a thursday afternoon and it came on friday at noon. Now that was fast! via UPS

Simple to use. Not to many confusing functions. Small and light, easy to move around while filming. I bought this camera because it was cheap, I didn't want high def and it's Canon name. Software was easy to install and very simple to use with windows...

Good Buy!

 

The wife loves it! I have a 5 year old Sony Digital Camera with flash. The Canon FS300 without a flash takes better pics and video.
