Software and MOD format SUCK!!

Lloyd W. Adams, Amazon
14 February 2010
  • Summary: I should've considered myself forewarned about the dreaded MOD format. But... oh no.. I figured that by now they would've fixed this. WRONG!! The camera is very convenient and easy to use... no problems with anything.. UNTIL..

Nice camcorder but bad software

Cliff F., Newegg
5 January 2010
  • Summary: The software is literally useless. When transferring movies from the camera to the computer, it freezes every single time. I have tried it on Windows XP, Vista, and 7 and it doesn't work on any version.
  • Pros: Very portable. I took this on our vacation and it fit in my coat pocket so it was really easy to carry around. Video quality seems good once you find the correct settings for the lighting conditions. Hooking up to the TV for playback is a snap. Using a 32GB card and set to the highest video quali...
  • Cons: Photos are pathetic. Software is useless. The video transfer from camera to PC using the USB cable freezes every time so I cannot get the videos on my PC to edit them for a DVD. The digital zoom is good but you really need to have a tripod or rest the camera on a surface to have it be a steady sh...

Terrible picture quality

BuyerOfThings, Amazon
19 December 2009
  • Summary: This camcorder has a lot going for it in terms of size and ease of use. Unfortunately, the picture quality is too bad to ignore. The camcorder is very compact and fits into the side pocket of my khaki pants (albeit snugly).

Disappointing quality for a Canon camcorder

B. Welch, Amazon
5 October 2009
  • Summary: I got this to record our children's activites. Testing the camcorder, ergonomics are good and it's mostly easy to use. I say mostly because the flip-out lcd screen has buttons that are invisible in a theatre. Unless you know where they are and what they do, you'll likely not be able to operate them.

Better off with a digital camera

scrambled Eggs, Amazon
5 October 2009
  • Summary: I have been in the market for a video camera for a month now. I purchased this device in the hopes of ending my search. Unfortunately this will not be the end of my search. Although the camera is very portable, easy to use and download to a Mac-pro, the picture quality, even under HD mode, was the...

Not suitable for Macs

N. Miller, Amazon
5 October 2009
  • Summary: Even the new iMovie will not open the MOD. video file format. The documentation (PDF) is practically useless. Mac users should plan to spend an additional $35 for software to convert the video files if you want to do anything besides watch the raw clips (which you can only do on the computer with...

  • Summary: I found the controls complicated and the video was poor quality. Interfacing between the camera and my computer was complicated. I returned for a refund.

Possibly received a defective camcorder

Trust Me, Amazon
5 October 2009
  • Summary: After all the positive reviews and YouTube posts and doing a month of research I settled on buying this camcorder. I received it and tested it and returned it within 24 hours. Video was grainy and had noise when you zoomed in.
