Consumer review by: Nigel (

Canon Legria FS46


I am having fun using this camera, its very light, controls seem easy to use. Have found instruction disk very helpful

Only bad point I have found is that on my last canon camcorder I was able to take a still at the same time as filming. Other than that I'm very happy with it
