In the spectrum that runs from low-resolution, cheapo camcorders such as the to high-quality, solid-state prosumer HD models such as Canon's own , Canon's line of SD card-based camcorders -- FS11, FS10 and FS100 -- falls exactly where you'd expect. At budget prices under £350, they're small, stylish and provide a reasonably expansive feature set. Unfortunately, the real 'budget' aspect of these models is the video quality.
The individual models in the FS series differ only by memory
and colour, with prices that go up in increments of £50. The top-end
model, the £350 FS11, comes in dark grey and includes 16GB built-in
memory; its lesser sibling, the £300 FS10, wears silver and packs 8GB.
The cheapest child, the £250 FS100, has no built-in memory but comes in
silver, blue and red.
These are the only functional differences, so read our full Canon FS10 review for more information.
