Summary: Gave this a below average rating simply because this camera is very complicated. The manual covers more then one camera which makes trying to figure out the camera operation really tough. Spent hours trying to find the spot light feature in the manual operation and finaly guess it must be for the othere cannon camera that the manual covers.
Problematic for closing discs and some confusing features
30 April 2009
Summary: Pros:- 1) Price is cheap for a DVD camcorder 2) Outdoor video quality 3) optical zoom Cons:- 1) The menu is very confusing. 2) You cannot finalize unless you connect the camera to power adapter. You will not know it unless you read the manual carefully 3) You cannot charge the camera if the power button is turned on. So assume that you are using the camera and it goes off because of no charge. You connect it to the power adapter, it will not charge..
