The compact, lightweight, user-friendly and affordable Canon FS40 Flash Memory camcorder records brilliant video.

The numerous benefits of flash memory have been proven in its use in advanced electronic products such as laptop computers, MP3 players, PDAs and cell phones. The Canon FS40 records to both the camcorder's ample 8GB internal flash drive as well as a removable SD card. This dual flash memory gives you extended recording space and, as importantly, added flexibility in file transfer and playback - especially for sharing video on the Internet. The FS40 is also SDXC memory card compatible for added capacity. Adding to the usefulness of this camcorder is Quick Charge, which reduces the recharge time for the FS40's battery, and Pre-Record, which gives you a head start on capturing the action. With Canon Exclusive features such as Canon 41x Advanced Zoom and our DIGIC DV II Image Processor, combined with a 2.7" Widescreen LCD and our sophisticated Dynamic IS - you've got a flash memory camcorder that makes it simpler than ever to share even more of your life's special moments.
