Canon Vixia HF200
  • CNET Editor rating:
    4.0 stars Excellent
      Overall score: 8.0 (4.0 stars)

  • CNET Editor rating:

      Overall score: 8.0 (4.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 4.0 stars out of 13 reviews

The Bottom Line: An excellent flash-based prosumer HD camcorder, you may nevertheless pass on the Canon Vixia HF S100 because it lacks an eye-level viewfinder. It's probably a better buy than the identical--but more expensive, because it has 32GB built-in memory--Vixia HF S10. Read review

  • Average user rating: 4.0 stars out of 3 reviews

The Bottom Line: A fine follow-up to last year's M3xx series, the Canon Vixia M4xx series should please most home-movie-oriented videographers despite its relatively high price. If you don't need the EVF, the M400 is your best buy, but if you'll be shooting a lot in sunlight, it's worth it to step up to the M41. Read review

    3.5 stars Very good
      Overall score: 7.5 (3.5 stars)
