Summary: I probably only have myself to blame. I rushed into buying this on the basis of the Canon name - I won't make that mistake again. The camera is OK - it comes with virtually nothing apart from a very thin 'Quick Start Guide' and if you want to refer to the full handbook you had better have your...
Summary: Much as I loved using this camera, and I really did fall in love with it, the battery life is only ½ an hour. I had planned to stock up with batteries (£20 odd each), but it doesn't come with a battery charger.
Summary: Pro's - great camera, simple to use & transfer movies to my iMac. Very light, starts up quickly. reproduces a pretty decent film, I did think the colours were a little washed out, but that may be my settings Con's - the battery that comes with it does not hold much charge.
Summary: This is a great little camcorder. Easy to use, light, and comfortable to hold, good features. Picture quality is very good. Disappointed by the battery life which only held about 30 minutes of charge, and the cost of extra batteries, which seemed disproportionate to the cost of the camcorder.
Great little unit let down by pathetic canon battery

Summary: The camera itself is pretty damn awesome for the cost, good quality images and easy to use, full HD recording, touch screen controls, revealable flip screen and wifi upload when you get home. This itself is severely undermined by the fact the supplied battery lasts for about 20 mins use.
Summary: Recording in a good light is quite good but in low light conditions is it bad. I expected more from CANON Also battery life is very very poor!!!!!! About 30 to 40 min for fully charged battery. I need to buy couple of spare batteries!! I would not recommend this.
THe image created is good but handling the camcorder isdifficult

Summary: The prouct is as ordered but I am disappointed because without a viewfinder the product is not that easy to use in order to get a good starting image. The image takes a while to stabilse as well and this i part of the anti-shake - all in all it is a good product for a beginer but have used...
