Excerpt: We bought this after owning a similar JVC camcorder. It has dutifully performed its role. We have not used it very much. I now see that it is selling on Amazon used for $159. I think we paid about $500 for it at the time. I don't have much to compare it to, but the image and sound quality seemed passable. I was never able to get it to upload video to my computer, but I think that may be my fault. Recently it broke.
The perfect handheld camera. Small and easy to operate.

Excerpt: Canon - Elura 50 Mini DV Digital Camcorder This item has been very useful in my lifetime. I have a family of 5 and there is always times to use the digital camcorder. It is great to look back on all the good memories of when my kids were once babies. They grow up so fast and without my camcorder I would not remember half of the events that we once did. It is also a great item because you can take snapshots as well as video.

Excerpt: I research everything soooooo much before I buy. I look at Consumer Reports and every on and off line service that I can. I always love a product that is easy to use because I am not a technical person. I want all the features and that is what this camcorder gives me. I read nothing but good things about it and the brand has always been very reliable for me. When I got it home, I was able to set it up and use it with all the features I wanted with no problem at all.
Summary: I got the "Eject Cassette" error last year and Canon repaired it for free. Lucky me. Recently, I downloaded ALL DV tape to my computer after I install a 400G external HD but after that, there is no image in the camera mode. It's like the lens cap is on. I called Canon after checking on their website, they think it is a bad CCD (lose connectin) and they are willing to fix it for me. They even send me the free UPS label so I can sent it to them for free.
Summary: I too experienced the "eject tape" error. Canon has repaired the camcorder 3 times at no cost, but of course it was being repaired over all the holidays. Do yourself a favor and buy something else.
Summary: Hi folks, I've owned my Elura 50 for two years and recently dropped it in the mountains and killed it... I've looked around for a replacement and to my disappointment found out that Canon did not come up with a "new" version or another vertical camcorder to replace E50. So I turned to other manufacturers in hope of finding something equally small and of good quality. There is nothing out there that compares to Elura 50.
