"So far, So good..."

CNET
22 February 2005
  • Pros: Overall, I like the form factor as well as ease of use. For the price ($427 at Circuit City) I was comparing it to the Sony HC32 that was $50 more, I was already spending more than I had planned and one of the deciding factors was the full one year labor
  • Cons: There definately is a bit of motor noise when playing the tape and while the size is nice, the sony is a little more compact.

"Small and Fun to use"

CNET

  • Pros: Small and easy to use. I am just upgrading to my first digital. Can't go wrong with this one.
  • Cons: Buy an extra battery or a longer life one if you plan on shooting anything very long.

Easy to use, poor at low light and night.

  • 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. you are able to take decent pictures while taping video and it does not interfere with the video. Some people complain about "motor sounds". I don't here it, even in my kid's room at night when it is silent.

"Small, easy to use at good price"

CNET
1 September 2004
  • Pros: Fits in hand well, fingers find buttons easily. Buttons not too small. Zoom operation even though slow, is very smooth.
  • Cons: I would have purchased Elura 65 had I known about the wide mode option. Some of the doors for the hidden compartments feel cheaply made.

"Pretty neat little camcorder"

CNET
1 September 2004
  • Pros: Well, I just purchased this well made little camcorder today, and so far I am really enjoying it. I recorded my daughter playing the piano and the picture and sound were quite nice! I know there were complaints with the Elura 50 about videos in low light
  • Cons: A bit of motor noise heard on playback, but not too severe. Screen is somewhat small, but I can see well enough with it.
