Canon 100 HS Advantages
As we mentioned before, the price on difference between the Canon A3300 and the Canon HS 100 is essentially nonexistent. Keep in mind that even though the differences between the two might seem small, every little thing counts. Here are some of the areas where the 100 HS outshines the A3300:
- If you’re into high quality video then the 100 HS is probably for you. The 100 HS is capable of shooting full 1080 HD video while the best the A3300 can only shoot 720. The 100 HS also has two slow motion video capture modes that allow you to shoot at 120 or 240 frames per second. The A3300 has an editing feature that can make “slow motion” videos but it still shoots at 30 frames per second. The 100 HS wins out in the video department on almost every front.
- The 100 HS is no slouch when it comes to shooting photos either. The biggest difference between the two cameras is apparent when you look at continuous shooting rates. The HS 100 can shoot 3.4 pictures per second. The A3300 tops out at 0.8, which is quite slow. If you’re going to be taking pictures of fast activities like sports the speed of the 100 HS will definitely be a huge advantage.
- The 100 HS has an edge in the size category as well. Both cameras are quite small, but the 100 HS is definitely lighter and smaller. If you’re looking for the most features in the smallest package then the HS 100 is probably the best choice.
The 100 HS wins out in some important categories, most notably when it comes to video. If you’re an aspiring videographer looking for a multipurpose point and shoot to carry along with you then you should consider the 100 HS. Next we’re going to go over some of the similarities between the two cameras.
