“satisfactory” (2.9)

“The Canon FS306 is a camcorder for a small budget which is set to teach some promotional offer camcorders the meaning of the word ‘fear’. It may only offer standard resolution but it did receive a better video rating than the Toshiba SX900 HD camcorder, and the other SD camcorders, in our test. This means that some HD cameras are only marginally better whilst costing a lot more. However, this device also doesn’t come with a wide angle lens, you can only charge it through a direct connection and it’s missing a port for a microphone and other accessories.”

Magazine 6/2010
“satisfactory” (56 out of 100 points)

Value for money: “very good”, “Test Winner”, “Best Buy”

“The biggest plus of the FS 306 is its fairly comfortable handling despite its compact dimensions. This has a lot to do with the joystick on the LCD which film makers can use to operate the majority of the device’s functions. The 306 also offers decent image quality - however, mostly only in daylight. But its pre-record function is a winner in every setting.” Info: This product was retested here Special Edition Camcorder Advisor 1/2011 by VIDEOAKTIV and received the same final score.
