Software Workaround

Cliff F., Newegg
5 January 2010
  • Summary: I found that the video conversion software mentioned by others was making my video quality really bad. More research told me conversion is not necessary so here is a workaround that I am using. Using an SD card reader, I transfer the video files to my computer.
  • Pros: I enjoy the camcorder a lot.
  • Cons: The software leaves you dead in the water if trying to create a DVD on the computer. I think canon makes great cameras but they really goofed up on the software side and I think this will cost them. The software just freezes on me when hooking the camcorder up via USB connection.

Camera OK, the MOD file format hard to work with!

V. Hutson, Amazon
3 July 2009
  • Summary: I have several Canon digital cameras, so when I decided to purchase a camcorder I immediately went to Canon. I waited a month for this new version. I wanted a small camcorder--and this is definitely small. I am a bit disappointed in the quality of the videos.

NOT FOR MAC

James M. Rivers, Amazon
3 July 2009
  • Summary: Okay, I bought this camcorder as everything looked good as to its abilities and I know I need to convert to a newer media; still use 8mm on a Sony for last 7 years, a fine machine indeed. Went with Canon for the Mac compatibility. WRONG!

Good But Not Great Camera

JC, Amazon
3 July 2009
  • Summary: I was hoping for better quality pictures. I get a lot of grainy ones and have tried adjusting many of the settings to overcome this, but still just get a lot of so-so pictures. The software is not the easiest to work with for some things.

Ok Camera, Very bad software

Oleg Belokoz, Amazon
3 July 2009
  • Summary: Camera is OK. Picture quality is fine when you set it to XP mode. It's too small to use for big hands and zoom button is very hard to reach with your finger, so every time you are trying to zoom in and out, video shakes alot.

Great product for the price - poor software

Mary K., Amazon
3 July 2009
  • Summary: We used this camcorder on a recent trip. It is very handy and compact - great with all of the airline luggage restrictions. The sound and picture quality is very good. It is a little bit shaky, but that is mostly because it is hard to hold any video camera still without a tripod.

This is a good camcorder for the money.

Bob Allen, Amazon
3 July 2009
  • Summary: Pros: Good quality video; stereo sound; good low light sensitivity; small size, light weight; controlled zoom rate; pre-record; good set of shooting modes for both photo and video, such as scene and backlight settings; good battery duration.
