When we decided to conduct this review and first clapped eyes on the Canon VIXIA HF100, our first though was – why so expensive? You can get the flip for about $400 cheaper if you look around. Then we checked out the hands-on reviews of this High Definition camcorder and although we found a few things to justify the price, we were not entirely happy as there were also plenty of negatives

The Canon VIXIA HF100

is another offering on the HD Camcorder market and although the VIXIA HF100 has been around for a while, it still remains popular and beats virtually all other competitors except for the aforementioned Flip Video Mino camcorder.

The 12x optical zoom no doubt helps maintains it’s position in the top stop as does the video quality although in low light, images can get grainy and the color output on the Canon VIXIA HF100

can be somewhat over saturated (then again, most HD camcorders are…).

Battery life on the VIXIA HF100 is pretty poor (about an hour’s worth of recording time per charge) and when your thinking about converting between different video formats from AVCHD for example to standard DVD it can take well over two hours even for small files under a half-hour long.

GadgetHeat’s verdict on the Canon VIXIA HF100 camcorder

? It’s OK but for the point and shoot crowd you may want to check out the upcoming Kodak Zi6

for more intuitive use.
