Pros: good battery life, Easy Computer Connectivity, Great sound/audio, Compact Design, Easy TV Connectivity, easy to use
Cons: Poor Low-Light Performance, auto out of focus
I have 3 Canon FS100's and really like how they work...so I bought 4 Canon FS400 and am very sad that they do NOT perform the same way. The last 9 months the AUTO FOCUS has been VERY DISAPPOINTING. When I film any function day OR night they seem to periodically go blurry and are NOT focused what so ever.
The FS400's only great quality is that the batteries last almost 4 hours.
I wish there was a way to return and have them fixed or get FS100's
I also have 4 Vixia HF R300's and not happy with Battery Charge times for extended batteries.

I have owned the Canon FS400 Flash Memory Camcorder with 41x Advanced Zoom and SDXC Card Slot since July 2011, and I would get my money back if I could. I video mainly family stuff and some weddings. Of the four weddings I have taped since I owned the camera, only the outdoor wedding was of any quality!
The camera is super easy to use, and works well with my Mac and iMovie, but the fact that it doesn't record well indoors does not make it a good buy for me.
