Summary: Awesome camera. I'm not a huge fan of the touch screen but all of the other features are solid and live up to the Canon quality reputation. Excellent resolution. I love this Camcorder. I use it every weekend for youth sports and game film breakdown. HIGHLY recommend.
Still my favorite all-around HD camcorder, three years in, hands down!

Summary: Before I got a DSLR capable of shooting video, I got one of these for shooting video for social media and content marketing projects. While most of my colleagues were shooting on Flip cams, I opted for one of these for the features I would look for in a higher-end pro camera.
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.
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.
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.
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.
