Tape eating problem

H. Choi, Amazon
6 November 2009
  • Summary: I got two years old Canon Elura 2. It's basically same as Elura 40. I love this camcorder, very handy. Its low-light performance is not good but tolerable. The real problem is eating tape and losing data. It's not only for Elura but also for Zr10 and others.

Good Camera for less then two years

Tim, Amazon
6 November 2009
  • Summary: The "remove tape" issue and damage to tapes started in less then two years. We spent $1000 for this camera for two years, you can buy two camera's for that cost now with the same features. I wish we would have read the reviews before buying.

Canon can be a pain at times

doppelganger, Amazon
6 November 2009
  • Summary: I like my camera, it's durable and functional. The gizmo's are pretty much kept to a minimum. THOUGH, Sony has a patent on a night-vision mode that NONE of the Canon's have, which is pretty cool if you've seen it first hand.

Malfunctions Malfunctions

Drew Rosenblatt, Amazon
6 November 2009
  • Summary: The zooming feature on this camera I purchased went haywire. The camera would constantly zoom in on everything unless I held the W down, causing great annoyance. Other malfunctions such as on the LCD, the "no memory card inserted" symbol would light up even after its proper insertion and formatting.

great camcorder

Alex, Amazon
10 February 2006
  • Summary: this was my first digital video camera and i think it is perfect for anything i would ever want to do. it has many different lighting options that actually absorb what little light you have and spread it throughout your video. it is an amazing little camera.

No Canon Camera anymore for me

Camfan in Austria, Amazon
5 February 2006
  • Summary: After owning the Elura MC 40 for 10 months and taping not even 6 hours the infamous 'Remove the cassette' error started to apear and the data on the tape was garbled and completely unuseable. After doing some research on the internet I found out, that many cameras of canon have this problem.

Tape Eater

bad taste, Amazon
20 January 2006
  • Summary: I bought this camera over a year ago. It has not had that much use, nor has it been handled roughly. The size is very handy, but the battery life is dismal, 30 minutes if I'm lucky. Video quality is acceptable, but I've seen better on my old analog camcorder. Audio leaves a lot ot be improved.

Planned Obsolescence

Todd Legault, Amazon
14 January 2006
  • Summary: I have accused Canon of holding a policy of planned obsolescence & I repeat it here. After just a few years of owning, taking immpecable care, & minimal amount of recording on this thing, this once-already repaired camera has died.

Internet Explorer, Amazon
9 January 2006
  • Summary: Pros: 1. Small size - smaller than my 3MP digital camera ! 2. Standard USB, IEEE 1394 ports, S-Video, RCA everything 3. Ability to take small 10 sec AVI files on the MMC Card Cons: 1. The zoom button does not feel comfortable - needs getting used to 2.
