do some research before you buy a camcorder.
Upon opening the box I noticed that the Canon FS100 camcorder has no threaded mount on the lens body...This is the first camera that I have owned, apart from childhood Brownie Box Camera, that has no apparent provision for mounting a lens filter...Even my little old Minolta 16 [spy cam~:-)] had filters!
This puts this Camera quite a "few rungs down the ladder"... before I have even attempted to use it!
How much would it have cost to have made this cam with a proper screw thread for filters??
Canon: Skimps, and fails here.
