Canon WD H58 vs RAYNOX HD7000 Pro
Great info on this forum. I'm just about to upgrade to the HF S100 from the HF100 and am wondering which W/A adapter is the better...
Canon WD H58 or RAYNOX HD7000 Pro
I've been using the Raynox HD 6600 with my HF100 and for the most part it's been awesome. My only complaint is there seems to be alot of flare when shooting into a light source. Wondering if the Canon will behave better in this respect. The Raynox seems to be less than half the cost...

Hey I was wondering if there's a way to view recording information such as the frame rate that you recorded on anywhere. That information must be stored in the data code somewhere?

Ordered an HF S100 from Digital Megastore at http://www.digitalmegastore.com/prod...33820994&sk1=1 today for $859 without any hassles. Will let you know if the store delivers as promised. Now need a 32 GB SDHC cl 6 card for it.

and Digital Megastore has free shipping. I didn't get any extras; no extra battery, memory card, etc. just the cam.

Did you have to do any back focus adjusting to the extreme with your hfs10?

Gotta love the free advertising... you should wait until you get it and then put the word out... unless of course you work for them which is what I think!

Sharing good (and bad) experiences with other people is one of the reasons forums like this exist. This includes shopping experiences too, which may be especially valuable for those having limited market competition where they live (for example, Canada).
On the other hand, blaming people, like in the above post, has no value at all.

And what I think is that your accusation is unwarranted and utterly pointless.

I ordered the HF-S100 from J&R's website on Sunday for $869 and called yesterday to find out when it was going to be shipping after I noticed some items might not ship until 7-14 business days in the small print of my confirmation email. They told me the camera was out of stock and wouldn't be back in stock until 7-23. I contemplated whether or not I wanted to wait that long and decided to call B&H to see if they would be willing to do a price match. B&H was very grateful that I called them and were able to sell me the camera for $899 and promised delivery this week (currently listed on their site for $999) I told them to place the order and called J&R back to cancel. I am much happier knowing that I am ordering from B&H because I have ordered from them in the past and their customer service has always been friendly and helpful.
Now I can't wait to get my camera!

I also ordered from JandR. It was yesterday and they notified me that the camera shipped yesterday. Seems that they got it earlier than expected.

I too, ordered a NIB HF S-100 from J&R last week and was told it wouldn't be shipped until the 23rd...only to get an email yesterday that it's on it's way already! Yay...I guess they did get them earlier than expected.
And I only paid $849 +free shipping! As far as I can tell...you can't beat that price anywhere right now (from a reputable dealer, that is.) And, I've always liked J&R...because they have awesome customer service, and always stand by their sales.
In fact, I bought my HV30 from them last year, and now I have to sell it to pay for my new HF S-100! I'll probably put it in the Trade & Exchange here pretty soon -and someone's gonna get a sweet deal, that's for sure...(since I only have about 6 hours on the thing, and it's got a bunch of extras I can't use on the HF S-100!)

No printed english user manual WTF
Just picked up my HFS100 from my local camera store.I was a little disapointed to say the least that Canon do not supply an user manual for english language.This is strange as they include a fra/deu/itl user manual.They inclued the usual cd with .pdf and crappy little 'getting started' leaflet.
Comon' Canon we all know there is a cutback on, but to think you supply printed manuals for what are probabaly bigger customers base is not on.For a top of the range camera (€1400) without printed manuals
Rant over, now looking faward to using a great camera!

You might have been sold the wrong camera, by that I mean, from a stolen truck.
2009 July 17th, 18:37
looks like the gig is up on these. They were $832 last week but now they can not be found for less than $950.
2009 July 17th, 21:23
I received my HF-S100 from DigiMegaStore today. They delivered on the $859 price and just after I ordered my cam, they dropped the price $10! So these are good guys and not a bait and switch store. The price has bounced back up to $994, so as troyhv20 said, the gig is up. I noticed the price bounced up at J&R, too. I wonder if Canon watches this and other sites and jumps down retailers throats when they drop their price too much. Should have a 32GB SDHC card and bigger battery on Monday.
Gualbert, I don't work for these guys but shopped the HF-S a LONG time. I almost bought a rebuilt HV30 but held out. I would have liked the HF-S10 but did what I could on my budget. When I found a very good price, I posted it for others. I have appreciated others posting their good pricing for cams on this site. The store had a good rating at resellerrattings.com, something you could have checked out along with the price I posted, so I bought the camera.

Oh, mikebuddy2, my HF-S100 came with a full English language (and one other language) printed manual. It's not 8 1/2 by 11 (wouldn't fit in the box), but thick and seems to be very complete, along with US warranty card and the expected CDs and cables.
2009 July 17th, 22:14
If you pay euros, maybe you don't buy it in USA or UK, but in an other language country, and probably that is the reason you don't get the printed english manual in the box.

This is a shop i have been dealing with for many years & have been bying there without a problem.The guy said Canon were not providing english user manuals this year.He brought another new box from the stores and opened it to find the exact same manuals as the first.I was trading in my HV30 which had all the manuals.

Camera looks so cool,love tapeless format,much more compact than the HV30,much better finish on the lcd plus controls,better menu system & oh yea takes great video & pictures.There is a difference between 1440x1080 & 1920x1080.Better dynamic range,dosent' blow out contrast as much.IMO
Thanks for all you guys on these forums as my final desicion was based on these forums.

If you buy a camcorder in usa without the english written manual that means its a "gray" market unit. Meaning that it was meant for sale not in the usa. It is the exact same camcorder but retailers are able to get it cheaper and sell cheaper or else make more profit. Problem is if it breaks your going to have problems getting warrently repair in the usa.

I made a video test for the HFS10 dof.

HDMI output for HF-S10
Does anyone out there know what the specs are for the HDMI output for the Canon HF-S10? I understand it is uncompressed video but is it 8-bit, 10-bit or something else altogether? I emailed Canon tech support but they said it is an unpublished spec and could not answer my question. I would like to try to record directly from the HDMI output and use CineForm to convert to get 24p.

what are you going to use as a recorder?
