Summary: Have had this camera for a least a year and it's been with me on all my vacations and celebrations. In a nutshell it makes increadible HD video! It's produced wonderful video inside and outside with or without lighting. The only problem is when shooting at night, I have to manually set it for good video. Canon did a great job on this model and I'm soooooo happy I got it!
Summary: Having purchased one of those old-school giant VHS camcorders years ago for $1200, this small, sweet camcorder was a dream for 1/3 the price I paid back then, and 1000 times better video! I love this little beast! My still camera is also a Canon, and in my opinion, nobody makes better cameras!
Great camcorder, outstanding price, and it's a deal that is hard to beat.

Summary: This camcorder is awesome. The picture quality is great. The touch screen LCD needs to be more sensitive, but it works well enough. The battery life is short because this camera uses a lot of power to record in HD. I bought this $500 camera for $389. This is one of the best deals on the web for an HD camcorder. I highly recommend this camera.
Summary: I will keep it simple. You can't beat this camcorder at $349 or less; comparable camcorders are going for $200 to $300 more. This camcorder has very good: Picture Quality, Audio Quality, Zoom, auto focus, image stabilizer, and it's easy to use. One thing to note is that the battery life lasts about 1 hour which should be fine for most occasions; however, you may want to consider buying a spare battery which you can find for under $15 at Amazon.
Summary: I've been using Canon products for quite some time. And this camcorder was a easy choice after some study. The only thing I'd like to complain is the high prices on its batteries. There are some replacements on the market, though, which are working just fine.
Summary: Everything as described except the quality of photo indoor is poor, especially the color is yellowish when the flash is not automatically on. Do not expect to use it as a camera for indoor activity. Nonetheless, it is a nice camcorder.
Summary: We are expecting in a few weeks and wanted to film those first precious moments with her. We bought this camcorder on a whim because of the good reviews. It was well worth the cost. For the price point, I doubt that you will be able to find something as great as this! I love that you can take photos at the same time that you are filming and everything comes out beautifully. We tried it out this past weekend with family and everyone was amazed at the playback on the TV!
Summary: This camcorder is excellent! I have owned several digital camcorder in the past and this blows them all away. The picture quality is perfect. I suggest buying the 32G card and a HDMI cable at the same time. I just kept finding new gadgets on this camera, it has a nice little flood light built in for very low light recording, not for long range but definately works nice. It even has a flash for the camera.
Summary: This is a great camera for the price. Is a much better deal than the M30 and M31 which have 8GB and 32GB internal storage. Bought a 16GB and 32GB Class 6 SD card for camera and haven't had any issues. So far I have only used camera outside in daylight and the picture quality is great.
