I would highly recommend this seller. I have just purchase a canon legria fs306 video camera and needed the product quickly. I contacted the seller (naomi) and asked if she could send it asap. She sent the product first thing on the tuesday morning and i received it on the wednesday. Thank you so muchas for the camera itself i am really pleased with it, it’s in great condition, works brilliantly and i am very happy with the price.

Not used it too much just yet but it seems to do exactly what i wanted, i used to have a camcorder using tapes and getting video onto a pc was a pain. This is easy just read the memory card and copy & paste. Good quality picture even in low light.

Canon LEGRIA FS306 Camcorder – Silver (37x Optical Zoom, 2.7 Inch Widescreen LCD)

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • Record directly to SD and SDHC memory cards. Great for sharing or uploading to the internet
  • Go anywhere: Smallest digital camcorder from Canon ever
  • Edit movie clips and add music in-camera with Video Snapshot
  • 41x Advanced Zoom gets you closer
  • Dual Shot: easily capture video and photos with only 2 buttons

The camera itself is really good and easy to use. However, the software supplied is a nightmare. The camera saves everything onto separate files, the problem i have is trying to get the files to join together when writing then to disc. Five e mails to canon later and i am no farther forward. Canon take responsibility for the camera and not the software. It’s as though i have bought the camera from two companies who don’t seem to want to talk to each other.

This was bought for my 13 year old son for xmas on the recommendation of other reviewers on the amazon website. It is easy to use, light and stylish and not a stupid amount of money. Good value and good results so far. An excellent introduction to video technology for anyone.

I bought this prior to our last annual holiday. We took all our family and used the camera to record our grandsons first trip to orlando and the theme parks. I used the camera on the auto ‘point and shoot’ mode and really couldn’t wish for better results. I threaded the camera, in a genuine canon legria case, onto my bumbag belt (yes i know it’s naff, but it’s just for ease/convenience) and i couldn’t tell i was carrying it. Overall, the size, ease of use, value for money and the quality of the recordings makes this a really brilliant buy.

Canon LEGRIA FS306 Camcorder – Silver (37x Optical Zoom, 2.7 Inch Widescreen LCD) : Bought it for wife who wanted an easy no nonsense camcorder to take to south african while visiting family.

Absolutley thrilled to bits. I have never used a proper camcorder before. I have tried shooting videos using my bridge camera, but i always felt that using a ‘normal camera’, to shoot videos felt a little awkward. When i first started to use this camcorder, was not disappointedthe canon legria, is a fine camcorder indeed.It is easy to learn to use and operate. It is extremely light and ergonomically designed to fit in your hand beautifullythe zoom is just brilliant. You can adjust the speed of the zoom to suit your preferences. Is a little tricky to use; the little button on the left side of the viewing screen, is tiny.However, with a little patience and a little practice, i got used to its size.

Excellent additional camera. I already have a canon legria fs200 and wanted a second camera to film from a different angle and position. Seemed sensible to keep to same format but just upgrade. No complaints from the 2 devices.

It is good, no doubt about that. I bought this camcorder long time ago and whilst it is not your top notch product, it delivers more than i expected. However, you need to practice and practice and work in well lit conditions. It’s got its limitations but i am still using it and i am happy.

Making people write long reviews on ggod they receive is in my opinion expecting a lot. Surely just a simple word comment is enough??.

I purchased this from amazon marketplace about 2 weeks ago. I have only recently tested the camera, as i was waiting to shoot in bright sunny conditions. Then, on an amazingly sunny afternoon i used the camera, filming in my garden. The colours of the blue sky & the rich green leaves on a tree were perfectly reproduced, & i must also mention that the sound quality is excellent on this camera too. Do bear in mind this is not a hd camera, it’s a standard def model. Even so, you will be surprised at the brilliant results this camcorder is capable of. I mainly got this to make indoor recordings of me playing my musical instruments. As i said already, the sound is impressive but the low light performance may not be the best, but is perfectly adequate. Worth mentioning is the built in light. Very useful i’m sure, although i have yet to put this to the test. The battery life is just amazing, & i have read that it lasts over 3 hours on a single charge .The lcd screen is clear, tilts & has easy to use playback buttons on it.

I wanted a small, easily manageable camera and this one fits the bill perfectly. I am not a technophobe so was not looking for technical brilliance just a camera that would record family and friends, this camera does just this and does it well.

This camera has a decent battery life, good video and sound quality (particularly the former) and does everything a non-professional could want. And for the price it comes at, that’s pretty impressive.

I bought this camera because i have a canon 500d to take my photos and wanted something i could trust to get quick video’s of my little boy, i am really pleased with it, its small, solid and compact and does the job well, i looked at other makes and models but nothing jumped out at me. It is a great little camcorder at a fantastic price, well worth the money, i would recommend this to friends and family. The only thing that annoyed me is the difference in price for a different colour, the silver one was the cheapest which is why i ordered it, i mean why would anyone want to pay an extra £30-£80 for the exact same camera but with a different colour case????.

Reproduction good ‘but you get what you pay for’. Purchased 4 months ago i find my holiday videos of very good quality and camera is easy to operate. But i loaded the 3 disks supplied to my computer and spent a lot of time trying to download to my computer but was unsuccesful. I also find all the playback buttons much too small & fiddly and over responsive. I am disappointed but you do get what you pay for.

Good convenient gp budget camcorder. The camera has generally performed well – battery life is amazingly good – but best not left on “stand by” as it chomps away the charge. Temptation is to keep it on standby if you suddenly want to shoot a movie – very, very fast wake-up from the quiescent mode.Zoom range is incredible – but even with the anti-shake selected the small size/light weight can make it hard to keep steady as the wobbly pictures will atest. You can select a slow to fast zoom speed – but it does not appear to be available on all the modes that can be selected – in some instances i have found only fast zoom appears to work – button to action is very sensitive and you get a real “woosh” when you subsequently check the movie on the big screen. Takes a long time to charge the battery too. The inevitable multi, multi instruction manual – eformat – must be great for those with insomnia. I really wish manufacturers would check the questions people ask and prepare an abridged (“idiot’s guide”) version which 99% of us only really want.However overall picture quality is astoundingly good for such a small device – really can’t see the need for an hd version (which this is not) since the small size is not really appropriate to achieve real hd results??.

I got this for my mum for her birthday. It is really easy to use and has great picture quality. I would recommend a gemshock bag to go with this from amazon as it fits very well in that bag. The delivery was very good and for the money it does exactly what it needs too.
