Summary: After 2 years of hard use and drops it finally stopped working. Worked fine until then. I don't think Canon makes them anymore so I am getting a similar replacement one so I can use all the accessories.
Summary: Pros - Good video quality overall (resolution) - Decent audio - Decent manual controls - Includes 16MB memory card Cons - Not so impressive low light performance (when compared to JVC 93US) - Not very sleek design - old fashioned controls, lens cap and flaky control area caps - Not very user-friendly menu
Summary: Consumer Reports recommends the Elura 80. It's a good camera at a great price. It's small, easy to use, light, and functional. It's inexpensive and overall a great buy. If you plan to transfer content to a computer for editing, however, you should know that you need a FireWire cable that does not come with the camera.
