The ultra-sleek and compact FS400 allows you to capture video to an SDXC-compatible memory card slot. Video stored on the memory card can then be inserted into your computer’s or television's card reader slot for immediate viewing. Additionally, you can use higher capacity SD memory cards to further increase the video storage of your FS400. And with SDXC memory card compatibility, you’ll have card storage capacity from 32GB up to 2TB.
In addition to the advantage of added recording time, flash memory offers more to you as well. You'll appreciate its quick response time, because it doesn't have to wait for moving parts. Press the record button and your FS400 starts recording video faster than you've ever seen before. In addition, when you review your footage, it will start playing more quickly as well. Another plus is the FS400's low power consumption rate, allowing your battery to last longer. It's just what you need so you don't miss that pivotal play on the field or the moment when they say "I do." While we certainly hope you keep your FS400 securely in your hand while shooting, if it happens to slip, or you accidentally knock it against something, you'll be happy to know that flash memory makes your camcorder more shock-resistant than other recording storage systems. It also minimizes the chance of data loss if you accidentally jolt or drop your camcorder.
Very Poor Perfomance
I bought this camcorder because of the well known name brand CANON.

Very poor quality of Picture.
Focus very poor.color quality is dull.

AUTO FOCUS...not so auto
I have 3 Canon FS100's and really like how they work...so I bought 4 Canon FS400 and am very sad that they do NOT perform the same way. The last 9 months the AUTO FOCUS has been VERY DISAPPOINTING. When I film any function day OR night they seem to periodically go blurry and are NOT focused what so ever.
The FS400's only great quality is that the batteries last almost 4 hours.
I wish there was a way to return and have them fixed or get FS100's
I also have 4 Vixia HF R300's and not happy with Battery Charge times for extended batteries.

I have owned the Canon FS400 Flash Memory Camcorder with 41x Advanced Zoom and SDXC Card Slot since July 2011, and I would get my money back if I could. I video mainly family stuff and some weddings. Of the four weddings I have taped since I owned the camera, only the outdoor wedding was of any quality!
The camera is super easy to use, and works well with my Mac and iMovie, but the fact that it doesn't record well indoors does not make it a good buy for me.
