Terrific buy if you need a replacement for your broken one.

Summary: Purchasing an obsolete piece of electronic equipment is tricky. I only need it to play back old Mini DV tapes into my computer for DVD production. When my original model died (the mechanical tape driver crashed and burned), I was informed by a somewhat unsympathetic (and unhelpful) Canon employee that they no longer serviced it and wished me good luck. I probably could have searched the web for a promise to repair, but at what cost?

Summary: This has been my first and only camcorder. I'm a novice, but plan to do some documentary-type recording in the near future. I bought my first one used off ebay and absolutely loved it. I did a ton of recording of my ex's band live on stage with a lot of mobility. I didn't notice any sound that people complain about. I was extremely happy with the video quality when I uploaded it to my computer via the firewire connection.
Summary: I purchased this camcorder in 2006. Five years of use and working pretty well like the first day. Easy to use. Very nice and colorfull video shots. Think I did the best choice buying it. 100% satisfied with my little cam.
Summary: I purchased my Canon Elura 100 mini-dv camcorder in 2007.This little gem has been nothing less than a pleasure to own.I have used it at least weekly and not even one glitch.The controls are easy to use and the auto setting pretty much does it all for you,but you can adjust most everything manually if your a videophile.Indoor low light shooting isn't perfect,but a turning on a couple of lamps makes a huge difference.The only downfall is the battery life isn't the best,I...
Summary: This is the most unreliable camera I've ever owned. I've owned a Sony and a JVC but wanted to try out the DV format (both of my old ones were 8mm). The infamous "remove cassette" error is persistent after 2 yrs. I was told that I am among the lucky few to have used it that long. I don't want to make this up, yes I was "happy" for 2 yrs. But does 2 yrs equate to "Canon reliability". I am in the market for a camera whose manufacturer name does not start with a "C".
Summary: Amazon Verified Purchase ( What's this? ) Consistent theme... I paid $30 + shipping to get the Canon cable from CiTi Electronics. What arrived was a generic. So, I contacted them and had to ship it back. Now they tell me they are out of Canon cables and offerred me a refund instead. What a scam. Seems like everyone is doing this trick so save yourself the hassle and DON'T BUY IT.
Not a genuine Canon cable -- Way overpriced for a generic

Summary: Amazon Verified Purchase ( What's this? ) Warning: This cable is listed as genuine Canon part: "Canon HTC-100 Mini-HDMI Cable for Canon HD Camcorders." however is it not. The seller CyberTech sent me a generic made-in-China HDMI cable in a plain plastic bag (tagged only as "HDMIT-2MM."). Estimated value is four dollars or less. If you want the genuine Canon HDMI cable, search for its Canon part number 2384B001. Be prepared to spend about $50 for it.
Summary: Me and my cousin are into skate sports and filming. I started early, handling my dad's Polaroid at age 4. I always loved making videos, and when I made a youtube account in the 5th grade, I continually made videos of my desktop, video games, etc. but no videos of myself due to how young I was. When I started getting close with my cousin, I realized he scootered good and that he wanted to make youtube videos, but he didn't know how to use cameras.
