1 out of 5 stars   Frustrating
By Nancy on February 04, 2011
Verified Purchase
Review submitted for Canon FS300 Flash Memory Camcorder Red (CNVFS300R)
Pros: Nothing
Cons: Battery Life
Other Comments: I bought this product on Dec. 2010 and I brought this video camera with me on vacation in January 2011. I also bought a 16GB memory which allowed me to video tape for up to 5 hours. The first time I used it (after the first 5 hours) I was not able to charge the video camera because the screen stated I needed to replace the battery. The battery already died and I wasn't even able to use it for a full day! I was very frustrated with this "new" video camera AND this website. When I received this package, I expected an instruction manual and warranty in the box but there was nothing. The box only contained the video camera and cords. For an amateur, I was not satisfied nor delighted. I wish I could return this product. Until now, the video camera is sitting in one corner of my house and it's fully paid. It feels like a waste. Any suggestions?

5 out of 5 stars   Great small camcorder

Review submitted for Canon FS300 Flash Memory Camcorder Red (CNVFS300R)
Pros: Zoom range/performance, Great Zoom, Great Sound, Easy to Use, Great Picture Quality, Large Clear LCD
Cons: No External Mic Input
Other Comments: Bought this for use during vacations. Just returned after two weeks and this little camcorder worked perfect. The video is clear, the sound is great and the still photo capability allowed us to leave our normal camera at home. The zoom is fantastic...I videoed footage of things I wouldn't have been able to see with my eyes and it was amazingly clear. A small tripod can keep the picture still. The most impressive thing is the size. It is small enough to fit in my short's pocket/cargo pocket which is convenient when you are involved in activities requiring both hands, but want to video activities during breaks. The battery life is good, lasts about four hours or more, so we never lost power and with my 16GB HDSD card, we never had to worry about running out of tape or changing tape/mini DVDs. Another great plus to buying this camcorder at Beach Camera...it was $40 cheaper than anywhere else I found it, e.g., [...]
