Summary: First of all, this is a basic features camera among the others, it doesn't have a USB port, but, once you finish the disc you can get your recorders into your computer and make your own movies. One more thing, it is very light and with the time you will love this. I think it's an excellent price for all the features it has, plus, it's CANON.
Summary: Canon makes a great camera and I am very satified with the camera. Pay close attention to the type of disc that you use. The format is the -R, the advertising with Amazon shows items frequently bought together including the +R/RW. I bought that package and the discs do not work. Right below that advertisement the technical details states the camera only uses the other format. Hope this saves you some money.
