A small standard definition camcorder for those who just want to point and shoot - video footage that is.

Canon LEGRIA HF-S11 Camcorder

 

The cost of the beautiful Canon LEGRIA HF-S11 is higher than a lot of other camcorders cost, but what do you get for your money here? Quite simply you get a camcorder that is small, stylish and always gives you the best video quality possible. Canon...

Canon Legria HF S11 camcorder review

 

Canon's Legria line up is rightly lauded for its excellent sharp shooting skills. So can the Canon Legria HF S11 live up to the legacy and justify its mega price tag? Or is it just a needless gadget expense as cammies get ever cheaper? Read our Canon...

Amazing pics, great design

No viewfinder, expensive

An excellent, but expensive HD camcorder, for real buffs only

Canon Legria HFS11 HD camcorder

 

The Canon Legria HFS11 is the latest Full HD camcorder to roll off the company's prodigious production line. It replaces the top-of-the-range Legria H...

Video quality, manual tools and features, auto modes, build quality – it's got the lot

Sorry, there seems to be some mistake – haven't we reviewed this camcorder already? Only incremental changes to its predecessor

The Canon Legria HFS11 is the premier choice for hands-on enthusiasts. It will also suit novices who aren't afraid of using camcorder menus. If you want the very best in video quality, this camcorder is pretty hard to pass up.

Canon FS11

 

Canon makes standard-def sexy again

Cute and compact design, dual flash memory recording modes, external microphone jack, 37x optical zoom

Slightly overpriced when compared to other SD camcorders, SD/SDHC card not included

The FS11 might be slightly expensive for an entry-level camcorder, but it offers an impressive array of features to make up for it. With its versatile recording options and powerful 37x optical zoom, it will suit anybody in need of a point-and-shoot...

Review: Canon HFS11 Camcorder

 

Got $1400 burning a hole in your pocket? Want to shoot stunning HD video? You should try Canon's newest Vixia.

Optical Image Stabilization steady like Captain Sully. Exceptionally vivid true-to-life color. Gorgeous, crisp images made us question our cable company’s TV high-def. Optional cabled remote gives you domimatrixlike control over manual focus. Ability...

Menus more awkward than an 8th grade dance. Brightly lit closeups appeared to have been rendered by 19th century impressionist. Pricey McPricey Pants

Canon Vixia HF S11 Camcorder Review

 

The Canon HF S11 is the latest flagship camcorder from Canon. The market is always interested to see what Canon has up its sleeve, but the HF S11 offers very few advantages over the HF S10, released earlier this year. Sure, you have the same solid...

The Canon HF S11 (MSRP $1399) is another excellent contender among this year's high definition camcorders. Its bright light video performance rivals just about anything you'll see from any manufacturer in 2009. In low light, however, the HF S11 does...

This year marks the start of Canon's entrance into solid state camcorders. The FS11 ($599 MSRP) is the top model in its standard definition line-up, featuring a 16GB internal memory and card slot for SD and SDHC cards. Below are the FS10 ($499 MSRP)...

Canon Vixia HF S11 Review

 

Read this Canon Vixia HF S11 review to discover what this camcorder has to offer in terms of features, performance, price to value, etc. Is the Canon Vixia HF S11 right for you? Read this review to find out.

The price of the Canon Vixia HF S11 may not fit into everyone's budget, costing $1399.99. The competition is priced lower, thus placing it on the higher end of the range. But then more than a year in the market now, you can get some fine deals off many...
