Summary: I purchased this camera brand new a few years ago, was happy with the features and ease of use, and it seemed to work great. I used this camera for video on ONE vacation following purchase. Upon returning home, I had the TAPE EJECT PROBLEM and it hasn't worked since.
Summary: We owned this lovely piece of equipment and had to send it in for repairs four times while under warranty. Took six to eight weeks to repair it every time. We had the tape not ejecting problem, the zoom going crazy problem, horizontal lines going across the picture (they never did get that fixed),...
Summary: So our Sony HI8 died after only about 20 hours of use :( We decided to give a canon a shot. The ejection door for the mini tape seems less "mechanical" so fewer things to go wrong. This camcorder is very easy to use.
Summary: After doing extensive research I decided to go with the Elura 60 versus the Sony HC30. I received the Elura and filmed my kids playing for about two minutes. The kids wanted to see themselves on the LCD screen. I switched the camcorder to VCR mode and rewound the tape.
Summary: When it worked, this camcorder is a thing of beauty. The pictures are brilliant, the sound is good, and the battery lasts a respectable amount of time. The menus were fairly straight-forward for a novice to use.
Summary: My Canon Elura 60 MiniDV camcorder works perfectly. I have not had any problems with it. It is easy to use and it's small enough to carry around on vacation. My previous camcorder was also a Canon and I owned it for 10 years with no issues.

Summary: The e-mail I sent to Canon. Hi ,I have a Canon Elura 60 the I bought from a store as a display but looked like new. I used this camcorder for maybe 10 hours before it would lock up and I would have to unplug both batteries and then it would work but not be reliable.
Summary: Had this camera for 3 years. It has always had problems, and the thing just keeps getting worse. Had numerous problems including the 'eject tape' warning, no tape detected, viewfinder has gone out, buttons stop working, photo camera doesn't work, zoom malfunctions and randomly starts zooming in or...
