  • Flash memory
    You'll appreciate its quick response time, because it doesn't have to wait for moving parts. Press the record button and your FS40 starts recording video faster than you've ever seen before.
  • Sleek, ultra-compact and lightweight design
    The sleek, ultra-compact and lightweight FS40 measures only 2.1" wide, 2.3" high and 4.8" deep. This small, easy to carry camcorder will go with you everywhere you go, as it weighs only 7.8 oz.
  • Superb image quality
    Great looking video starts with the images your camcorder sees, processes and records. 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 FS40, 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.
  • The 2.7" widescreen LCD
    The 2.7" widescreen LCD on the FS40 lets you see more of what your camcorder is recording. The 112,000 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.
  • Quick Start
    With Quick Start you'll never miss a quickly unfolding shot again. When the FS40's LCD panel is closed, it is placed in standby. When the action starts, open the LCD panel and you'll begin recording in less than one second. You'll also help extend your battery life as compared to leaving the camcorder in regular recording mode.
  • Widescreen HR
    The FS40 captures and records true 16:9 High Resolution Widescreen for picture perfect video. It comes from Canon's sophisticated image processing system, which uses the entire width of the image sensor, capturing true 16:9 widescreen. The additional pixels captured deliver better image quality.

    Great camera, very happy

    Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

    My Wife loves this Camera for all the sports and projects that our family is involved in. Got this gift for her for mothers day and I don't regret it. It's a big hit.
