The Canon FS300 is touted as being lightweight, easy to use, and affordable. Packed with a huge 37x zoom and convenient flash memory recording, it's a promising entry into the low-range consumer market. It comes in your choice of sleek colors and has a large widescreen LCD, Electronic Image Stabilization for steady shooting, Quick Start mode, and even an idiot-proof electronic lens cover. The most notable omission is HD video, however, which is something most will miss.
