Excerpt: This Canon DVD camcorder is the one which has the all the essential feature of both Digital camera as well as a camcorder.When we use old camcorders ,if we convert the contents from tape to either CD or DVD there will loss of quality in the video.But this …
Summary: We bought this camcorder for our recent trip to Cancun. I have to say it isn't very user friendly. You cannot take still shots unless you have the mini sd card, which I still have been unable to find but the video works nicely using small dvds. Overall it may not be the best for people that find electronics a little complicated but if you have the time to sit and read the book from front to back it should come easy to you.
Summary: I own this camera/camcorder, and the first thing you notice is that it is absolutely gorgeous. It's color is two-toned and it is a well-made quality product from Canon. It's very small in size and takes the place of both a camera and camcorder, which makes it convenient to travel with. It uses mini DVD's for videoing and a mini SD card for photos. Once you get the hang of it, it is easy to use and easy to switch back and forth between camera and camcorder.
Summary: When I bought the unit, I loved it. Then after recording many items onto a disk, the disk became unreadable. Oh, my first use of memorex media. I switched back to old reliable TDK. Nope. It wrote a whole disk of recordings, but cannot reliably read them, nor can I transfer them to a computer or play the disk on a DVD player. It stoped working, was expensive, is not that old, and I don't know what to do.
