Summary: This camera has a dial for different types of shots, which makes it simple. It also has fun special features like black and white. It doesn't have a light, but I was suprised how well low light footage comes out. For those who aren't ready to go high tech. or don't want to spend a lot of money, it's a great buy.
Summary: This camcorder is very affordable and easy to use for beginners. My husband has always strayed from "technology" but can use this camera easily. I like that the camera has many options (fading in/out, titles, dates etc.)that make using the camera a little more challenging (and fun) for me. You can definately afford this camcorder! My only concern: the viewfinder seems to put the pictures in a yellowish tint and it is distracting.

Summary: I purchased my ES-60 about a month ago, so far I have had no problems with it, the quality is excellent, and the battery life is great. This is a great entry-level camera for the amature home videographer. The only reason it is not a 5, is the menus at first seem a little confusing, so here is the simple way to navigate the menu system, hit menu to bring up the menu screen, use the wheel to select what you wish to do, and then hit focus/set button to turn various...
Summary: I have just purchased the canon es60 and it is one of the best cameras I have ever owned! It is easy to use, very light, and at a great low price. My friends and I love to make movies on it. I had searched for quite a while after I decided on the canon, and the cheapest price I found was at Best Buy, but to tell you the truth it wasn't really that cheap.
