  • Summary: I was very pleased using this camcorder. It was a little difficult to manage the settings for me. They can be complicated to follow to achieve the desired results.

  • Summary: I bought the camera because I'm a pastor in process and I needed to submit a / some video of my worship services and sermons to the "higher-ups". I bought this particular camera because I like the data storage format - in times previous, it was difficult to match up the video medium between what I had to record with and what the powers that be had with which to view the video.

Great Camcorder and a great value for the money!

  • Summary: I purchased this camcorder to make videos with my grandkids. We take old songs and make mini movies out of them. (They really liked the Marty Robbins song "El Paso" because we did a western). I already owned a Canon FS200. The only difference between the two camcorders is that the FS200 has an external mike jack, and I use a shotgun mike to get better sound quality. I think that the Canon FS series camcorders are some of the best for the money out there.

Good overall camera

T. Ramsey, Amazon
12 May 2011
  • Summary: This camcorder is very good. The automatic lens cover is (surprisingly) something you don't find on most of the models in this price range. It's a nice touch. The video quality is has 3 different levels: XP, SP, and LP. XP gives the best video quality while LP allows for the most video to be recorded on the memory card. The default is SP and frankly I couldn't see that much difference between XP and SP.

Worked fine with my mac.

C. Weitzman "C Dub", Amazon
28 February 2011
  • Summary: I got one of these in black at my local big box because i was finding mixed reviews about it working on a mac and wanted an easy return if it did not work. At the store they said it "should" work buuuuut i could bring it back if it didn't. I have a intel imac with imovie 8 thats about 3 years old. shot some quick movies and hooked it up per instructions and it imported no problems.

Warning: does not work with Mac

Ellen M. Santistevan, Amazon
11 February 2011
  • Summary: In general, I like this video camera. It is easy to use, very light and portable. However, it does not automatically work with mac computers -- you must buy an extra piece of after-market software in order to use the video files. It will run you about another $40 no matter which conversion program you buy, so factor that into the true price of the camera. That being said, however, the video quality and sound are quite good. I like the SD storage, and the zoom is great.

Getting This To Work With A Mac

Occasional Reviewer "79o3wq48y7h", Amazon
8 January 2011
  • Summary: It is not obvious how to get video from the camcorder to a Mac: if you read the manual and try to install the software, you will reach the conclusion that it only works in a Windows environment. An email from Canon helped clarify things: just plug the camcorder into your Mac and you will be able to drag and drop the files. The .MOD files will be the ones you want.
