Flash Memory in a Compact Size
The FS10 is one of Canon's first and most affordable Flash Memory camcorders.
In addition to the advantage of added recording time, Flash Memory offers more to you as well. You'll appreciate its quick response time, because it doesn't have to wait for moving parts. Press the record button and your FS10 starts recording video faster than you've ever seen before. In addition, when you review your footage, it will start playing more quickly as well.
Another plus is the FS10's lower power consumption rate, allowing your battery to last longer. It's just what you need so you don't miss that pivotal play on the field or the moment when they say "I do".
While we certainly hope you keep your FS10 securely in your hand while shooting, if it happens to slip, or you accidentally knock it against something, you'll be happy to know that Flash Memory makes your camcorder more shock resistant than other recording storage systems. It also minimizes the chance of data loss due to damage to your recording media or the moving parts in other camcorders.
Making this new technology even more convenient to use is the FS10's compact size and light weight. Measuring only 2.3" wide, 2.4" high and 4.9" deep, it combines big video storage capacity in a small, easy to carry body.

It is also possible to transfer still images recorded to the SD/SDHC card to the internal memory.

Variable Zoom Speed Control

The 2.7" Hi-Res Widescreen LCD on the FS10 lets you see more of what your camcorder is recording. There's no need to imagine what your final image will look like on your widescreen television because it's squeezed into a small space while you're shooting. What you see will be what you get.
Another sure sign of amateur video is the unsteady zoom shot. But with the FS10's zoom control, you simply select one of three pre-set zoom speeds for smooth, steady, professional looking zooms.

Program AE Mode
For the best exposure for various situations, the FS10's Program AE mode will automatically adjust the settings to compensate for the conditions and subject. Choose from Portrait, Sports, Night, Snow, Beach, Sunset, Spotlight and Fireworks. You won't have to guess if you're capturing all the action just the way you want it because the FS10 will do it for you.
Never miss a quickly unfolding shot again. Push the Quick Start button between shots andit places the FS10 in standby mode. When the action starts, push the Quick Start button again to begin recording in less than one second. You'll also help extend your battery life over leaving the camcorder in regular recording mode.
Low Light Performance
Some of the most magical shots are taken at the end of the day or long after the sun has set. You won't miss any of them, thanks to the FS10's mini video light. The light lets you shoot subjects in color in low light up to 4.9 feet away. So, whether it's a shot of a sleeping baby, or a dramatic skyline at night, the FS10 captures all the moments you want to record.
