Summary: even with a low pixel this camcorder is giving excellent results. not so hard to operate . but must read the instruction booklet quite carefully. No matter what disk is used a slight background recording noise is present if no other sound recording on the disk. With voices or noise it is hardly noticeable. overall good camera considering the amount of time it has been on the market.
Summary: Love this camera..easy to use and picture quality is great! Average on recording in low light, but still better than most. Too bad canon discontinued this model. Hopefully they will come out with a newer version of it. Works great with my Mac!
