    Expanded Product Features
    • Flash memory
      With the ultra-sleek and compact FS300 you're able to record over 20 hours of sharp, clear video onto a removable SD card using flash memory. The SD memory card is easily inserted into your computer or TV's card reader and will allow you to view your recorded footage immediately.
    • Ultra-sleek, compact and lightweight design
      The FS300 is ultra-compact and lightweight. Measuring only 2.2" wide, 2.3" high and 4.8" deep, it combines big video storage capacity in a small, easy to carry camcorder weighing only 7.9 oz. You'll want to take it wherever you go.
    • Superb image quality
      Great looking video starts with the images your camcorder sees, processes and records. Canon's legendary technology works together in the FS300 to deliver the best at every step. Canon delivers the best in standard definition video in the FS300. 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 FS300, 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. In comparison to conventional electronic image stabilization systems, extra compensation is applied at wide-angle focal lengths to eliminate unwanted vibration that is common when walking.
    • 2.7" widescreen LCD
      The 2.7" LCD on the FS300 lets you see more of what your camcorder is recording. The 123,000 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.
    • Video snapshot
      Video Snapshot will let you shoot short movie clips with the FS300 in the same way you've shot snapshots with your still camera. You can create 4-second video clips which can be played back in the FS300 with background music. You'll also be able to capture clips in Playback as well, making it more convenient than ever to use this feature. It's the perfect way to document your vacation in a quick, easy, entertaining series of clips, perfect for Internet sharing.

    I had decided to video my grandchildren and friends while fishing. Internet research made the Canon FS 300 look just the right size, and price. Reviews seemed excellent and video made it look simple to use. Getting it USED on Ebay was a risk but the seller had an excellent history. So I got it for far less the the new cost and it works like new!! So far it has proved to be just what I had hoped for. By the end of summer I hope I will be just as happy. I already had a tripod that fits just right. Now I just set it at the bow of the boat , push the button and it records hours of exciting fishing that I can watch during the winter.

    I purchased this camcorder to make videos with my grandkids. We take old songs and make mini movies out of them. (They really liked the Marty Robbins song "El Paso" because we did a western).

    I already owned a Canon FS200. The only difference between the two camcorders is that the FS200 has an external mike jack, and I use a shotgun mike to get better sound quality. I think that the Canon FS series camcorders are some of the best for the money out there. Ease of use and file transfer to the computer is what I like most. The quality of the video is outstanding. I now have two of these style camcorders so I highly recommend them.

    Although I will rate the operation high for this camera, I have spent alot of time going back & forth with Canon & Mac trying to get it to be able to download to my IMac. I would suggest that if you have a Mac, get something else.
