Good price, I think most small camcorders are terrible in low light....even the more expensive ones.

Terrible would be too harsh. It does get grainy. In good light it gives a great picture. Low power consumption as well.

I dont think terrible is harsh enough !

That said, im very happy with mine, its not bad atall in daylight, and the battery life is wonderful.

How would people rate this against the Panasonic SDR-S7?

I put an SD card in the Panasonic SD7 and this Canon in my local Currys, took them home downloaded the images ........ rubbish! Obviously i was only using it at the store counter but i would not say it was a low light situation in a fully lit building, compared to the HD camcorders these two are just not good enough. Pays your money though.

I am not expecting miracles in low light as these are small, cheap camcorders. Did any one of the two stand out to you? I saw the panny in Comet and must say I was sorely tempted, it is super small.

Being looking at camcorders for a while, for my sons Christmas. this seemd a good deal without going into HD teritory.

A few videos re the FS100, (I like the zoom feature, particularly the clock tower in the first vid)....

Anyway Thanks, got one

errr was about to humble pie .... realised later that the camera may of been set in the store at the long play/ lower quality setting so went back to the store .... yep! ... set to highest quality, filmed, got back home, downloaded .... still **** ..... compared to a £350 HD model! Its OK and the zooms good but my £100 movie mode stills camera is just as good for general family stuff etc. Buy the Panasonic HD SD9 etc if you want 'good enough for Sky News' output!
