  • Flash memory
    With the ultra-sleek and compact FS300 you're able to record over 20 hours of sharp, clear video onto a removable SD card using flash memory. The SD memory card is easily inserted into your computer or TV's card reader and will allow you to view your recorded footage immediately.
  • Ultra-sleek, compact and lightweight design
    The FS300 is ultra-compact and lightweight. Measuring only 2.2" wide, 2.3" high and 4.8" deep, it combines big video storage capacity in a small, easy to carry camcorder weighing only 7.9 oz. You'll want to take it wherever you go.
  • Superb image quality
    Great looking video starts with the images your camcorder sees, processes and records. Canon's legendary technology works together in the FS300 to deliver the best at every step. Canon delivers the best in standard definition video in the FS300. A genuine Canon 41x advanced zoom delivers unsurpassed image quality. The 680,000 pixel CCD Image Sensor and Canon DIGIC DV II image processor captures video with vivid, intense, lifelike detail.
  • Dynamic IS
    With the Canon FS300, you can be sure that even on the move your video will be smooth, steady and professional looking. Dynamic IS provides continuous adjustment throughout the entire zoom range to correct a broader range of motion. In comparison to conventional electronic image stabilization systems, extra compensation is applied at wide-angle focal lengths to eliminate unwanted vibration that is common when walking.
  • 2.7" widescreen LCD
    The 2.7" LCD on the FS300 lets you see more of what your camcorder is recording. The 123,000 dot screen delivers bright, clear detail and the widescreen format means there's no need to imagine what your final image will look like on your widescreen television because it's not squeezed into a small space while you're shooting. What you see will be what you get.
  • Video snapshot
    Video Snapshot will let you shoot short movie clips with the FS300 in the same way you've shot snapshots with your still camera. You can create 4-second video clips which can be played back in the FS300 with background music. You'll also be able to capture clips in Playback as well, making it more convenient than ever to use this feature. It's the perfect way to document your vacation in a quick, easy, entertaining series of clips, perfect for Internet sharing.

    Great camera for the price! User needs to learn the system carefully.

    Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

    I bought the camera because I'm a pastor in process and I needed to submit a / some video of my worship services and sermons to the "higher-ups".

    I bought this particular camera because I like the data storage format - in times previous, it was difficult to match up the video medium between what I had to record with and what the powers that be had with which to view the video.

    The camera seems pretty straight forward and simple to operate as far as taking video and pics (the camera does both). You can quickly get to taking video and pics.

    I ran into a bit of a problem when it came to playback - I wanted a particular section of what had been taped (the sermon, rather than the entire worship service) and I could not figure out how to fast forward. The instructions indicate that it can be done, but I couldn't make it work or get to where I needed to get with the camera in order to make it happen. This was while the camera was hooked up directly to a TV.

    Some of my colleagues thought it would work with any one of the several computers we had present at the time. We had a couple different Apple MacBooks, and a PC tablet. We could get the camera hooked up to the / a computer, but the formats wouldn't jive - the camera came with 2 or 3 CDs - PC computer programs, in order to be able to show video on a computer. I run an Apple MacBook and I thought that the iMovie app would enable us to view video. Apparently not - I'm told that I need to download a "converter app" which will cost about $30.00 or so.

    Overall, I like the camera and I'm sure any shortcomings I've listed above have more to do with my unfamiliarity with technology than with any shortcomings the camera may or may not have. I like the camera. I think it was a good purchase for the price - a highly valuable tool. When I'm done jumping through the hoops for the church, I'll be happy to use it with my model railroading! :-)
