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 Vixia HF100 Camcorder Review - Canon Flash Memory

 

The Canon HF100 ($899 MSRP) comes from a good pedigree. It's nearly identical to the Canon HF10, which received our seal of approval earlier this year. The HF100 offers all the same image quality, manual controls, and form factor, but loses the 16GB...

Canon Vixia HF S100

 

The Canon Vixia HF S100 (and its sister model, the HF S10) represent the top of the line from the manufacturer's 2009 camcorders. The 8.59-megapixel sensor, large lens, still photo capabilities, and excellent new custom control dial are just some of...

Canon has certainly made some improvements this year with the HF S100: a new lens and sensor that produce incredibly sharp videos and photos, a new processor that allows for simultaneous photo recording and less noise, and an excellent new custom...

Canon HF100

 

The HF100 is equipped with a single 1/3.2-inch CMOS sensor and Canon's Digic DVII processor. The sensor is smaller than the one found in the popular HV20 and HV30 models (among others), but we saw little difference in performance. In bright to moderate...

The low light performance is great, as well. The HF100 manages to pull out color and detail in even very low light. It's helped greatly in this capacity by the camcorder's multiple frame rates, which we'll talk about in bit

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 HF100

 

Similar to the award-winning HF10, but cheaper.

In comparison to the HF10, the similarly-specced HF100 actually works out better value when you factor in the price of memory. Ok, the HF10 can add a 16GB card and give you four hours of shooting in FXP - comparable to a hard disk-based model - whilst...

Canon HF100E review

 

The Canon HF100E is a well equipped AVCHD camcorder, although we are disappointed by the lack of an electronic viewfinder or a manual focus ring.

We can't argue with the Canon HF100E's build quality or the resulting images and we like the bright LCD that makes it easier to see what you are shooting in bright outdoor conditions. The cinema mode and digital effects impress us too. We wish Canon...
