Has been the best 1 CCD camera.

Truth Teller "TT", Amazon
23 February 2002
  • Summary: I do corporate & personal video production & have found the Elura to be the best 1 CCD chip video camera I have ever used. I have used about 8 1 CCD hand held cameras & the Elura's picture quality has been the best. I have been able to flawlessly edit the Elura's video in to the video taken by my Sony VX1000, which is a 3 CCD camera. Canon changed the construction & parts on later models, I've tried a couple, & the picture quality is not as good as the Elura's.

Canon Elura

Consumer Democracy
22 June 2001
  • Summary: The Canon elura digital video camera, is most definately the best in its category. The progressive scan feature gives excellent results when the frames are dumped into a computer via the firewrie interface. The Elura also has both svideo, and firewire in and out. This allows for you to use the camera as a video capture device, as well. As a professinal animator I use the camera as a direct to tape preview system.
  • Pros: Features, size and dependability
  • Cons: microphone placement and quality

Not a single snag......

Jermes "joe389", Amazon
15 October 2000
  • Summary: This camera is small, but the optics are great and it does everything. All the controls are very intuitive, and I'm still discovering new things it does. I've used it snow boarding, on the beach, at a dim wedding reception and downloaded the footage/images right onto my computer. (Premiere is good) And best of all, no snags- amazing for such a complex device. Unless you absolutely must be able to change lenses (sheesh), this camera is great.

The Great Compromise

David W. Brown, Amazon
22 December 1999
  • Summary: I had intended to buy a 3 chip Sony VX 1000, but budget forced me to buy something a little less pricey. My reasoning was that I would use this as a back up after I get a 3 chip high end XL-1 or GL-1 or possibly a Sony TRV900 when I can afford it. However I was able to find this camera at about 3 $ under list, and it is a great compromise.

Love it, great value

David L. Beckwith, Amazon
17 December 1999
  • Summary: I won't bore you with the good things since my review is five starred. I'll let you know it's drawbacks (in my opinion). The microphone is on the top and not in the front so I've found myself accidently covering it with my hand especially when videoing my 2 year old son at knee level. It doesn't have a microphone port, you have to purchase a separate option.

Canon Elura Easy to use

Craig Peer "craigpeer@ymail.com", Amazon
7 December 1999
  • Summary: Fabulous. The first day I was making movies, transferring them to my iMac and my TV. Uploaded one to an Internet site. Great picture quality, good sound, good manual. Very easy to use and well worth the price. Very light weight for travelers. Many fancy extras such as special editing effects.
