Summary: I bought this for school because so I wouldn't have to borrow the cameras at school. It does everything I need for my video class and then some. It came with all of the original packaging and it looked brand new. Easy to use and would recommend.
Summary: I have owned this for about 2 years now and the camera does not turn on. There is blue screen and I can hear sound of lens opening. Also I cannot turn it off, i have to let battery drain completely. Looking at online reports others are having same issue after 2-3 years of use. Hence this is a design error and poor workmanship. Contacting cannon, they said it is out of warranty. and want to charge three hundred dolls for it.
Summary: The product did not show as clear of a picture as I had expected. I returned the camera at my expense. I then contacted the seller about getting a replacement. After several days, one was sent. The image quality is still not what I expected, but I knew it was a used camera. Everything works and the company was good about sending me a replacement camera.
Summary: I am a professional camera man. I could not believe I could get this camera for such a low price. I received it prompley and it works like a dream. Canon is the best period. I recommend this to any body wanting the best quality of HD video.
Summary: First know I own and love this camera. So when I needed another one I turned to E bay as Canon is not making this camera anymore, and haven't been for years. The camera sent to me is in working order and I have used it several times. If I could find another one to purchase, I would.
Summary: I purchased this camcorder by accident. I wanted the model HF S20 instead, but this camcorder is super small. It has an internal memory, or you can use flash cards. It is a bit annoying switching between the two because you have to manually setup the camera to do that. Also, if you put in a card with a class higher than 6, it will not let us use some of the higher picture quality when recording. If this is your only camera you will love it.
