Pros: good battery life, Great sound/audio, Compact Design
Cons: Poor image quality, stabilization does not work.
I have always bought a Canon for my photography needs. I was hoping for another great video camera. I have the FS100 and it was perfect, but was not HD. I bought this one in hopes it would be the same but with the HD. I was very disappointed. I use my cameras on the dash of my car and mounted on my motorcycle. The FS100 was perfect, no jitter or bounce. It was perfectly stabilized. This new one does not even come close. I can not get a stable video. Even on a tripod that is about 100 ft from a railroad track will not keep a steady video. This model is trash. I have contacted Canon three times and they only say, play with the stabilization settings. No help. :(
