Comments about Canon Canon VIXIA HF100 High Definition Flash Memory Camcorder with 12x Optical Zoom, 200x Digital Zoom, 2.7" LCD Screen:
Image approaches quality of $5k-up cameras, I've shot filler that edits seamlessly right alongside... love that its soda can size draws no attention, love Flashcard media, don't so much love the compulsory wrist torque of its shooting ergonomics nor fact that codec (avchd) has spotty support in edit software, but both are worth overcoming for the footage you get. Just enough features for studio or field exigencies without feeling rinky-dink; its easy mode grabs impressive on-the-fly in nearly all conditions. Great image stabilization, optics and simple interfaces... I researched a lot before buying and it exceeds my expectations.
