Review of Canon Legria FS306 camcorder


Good points: traditional camcorder shape means fiddly for quick shot, better for long shots. Powerful zoom and excellent lens. Drawbacks: SD video looks very poor in comparison to HD. Very chunky. Seems outdated. Still photos very poor.

Really good purchase

Neat little camera


Started to read the manual and got confused. Just played around with camera for 30 minutes and found it quite easy so best just to consult manual if something you want to do and can't work out how to. Lots of info available in screen; most of it...
