Canon FS10

 

Small, affordable and flashy

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

No headphone jack, lightweight design takes some getting used to

The Canon FS10 is a good all-rounder that puts portability and ease-of-use at the forefront. While it may not excel in any one area, it remains one of the better value standard-def camcorders on the market.
