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.
"Good Camera, no download instruction, can't see in PC"
21 January 2010
Pros: Good Camera, records long footage picture quality is excellent.
Cons: Software that come with camcorder, is not great. it doesnot allow you load part of the video, the whole thing has to be done. Then i cannot watch the whole thing at a time. I have to watch each .MTS files separately. PAIN. I will never buy Canon.
Pros: Recording features are very good and having rich colors.
Cons: I allready spend more that 20 hrs, and I couldn't download the vedio out of my camcorder. I called both Canon and Pixela and both of them washed their hands. Canon stats its Pixela's responsibility, and Pixela confirms they are not ready for Win7.
