After a lot of reading I have decided the FS100 maybe the best option for me.
This is my first camcorder. It just needs to be point and shoot. I'm buying it to take on honeymoon. I just want a good quality picutre, I don't really need HD. It's for "memories" more than anything so as long as the image is clear and sharp it will be fine, which after checking the youtube clips it looks pretty good.
The FS100 seems to be a good value camcorder, offering good performance for the money.
A couple of questions though. Does it record in widescreen? And how much of an annoyance have people found the .mod format to be? I use Linux, although do have a Vista box for gaming so I could put the video on their and encode it into another format I guess. Can it be plugged directly into a TV and play video OK?
Maybe im being really stupid, but are the files still available.
when I try and download all I get is an ad in a new window.
thanks that worked.
Is that the file as it comes straight off the Camera? Looked OK.
How does look on a 32" or TV?
And would you say this is one of the best standard def cams at the same price point?
Hello. Thanx for the info on the FS100. You haven't got back to your initial observations about Mac compatibility. You have stated that you are a Mac user and that you use Final Cut Pro. I just bought a FS100 and plan to start using Final Cut, bought I am now considering returning this camera unless somebody can tell me that the necessary software upgrades are available to rectify all these problems that everybody is discussing. I recently uprgraded my G4 Mac Book to Leopard and I couldn't use iMovie 08. Can I capture footage with older versions of iMovie and/or Final Cut Pro?
