  • Summary: I have had this camera for 4 years and I still like it better than all those new fangled DSLR's...easy to use with great quality and you can fix the lighting and other features on the camera itself. STILL using it to make YouTube videos and I love it.

  • Summary: It's alright; I had the choice of getting a DSLR or a camcorder, and I sincerely regret my decision. The touch screen is a little cumbersome. That being said however, the picture quality is pretty good. nothing spectacular, but it gets what I want out of it.

Not a bad little camera for the price.

Hermann Trappman, Amazon

  • Summary: Unfortunately, back in August, I took a little swim with my camera when I caught a snag in the river I was kayaking on. Since I love this camera and, drying it out did not seem to work, I lucked out when I could find a used one at a reasonable price. Easy to use, great quality video, light and easy to carry compared to my Canon XHA1. Only proble is that it cannot hook up to an external sound system.

Got to say, this is a step up from other cameras I've had.

Christopher Booker, Amazon
4 January 2014
  • Summary: Got to hand it to Canon, they know how to make a camera. From the good build quality, the plethora of both auto and manual features, to that little viewfinder, I am impressed with this thing. First thing that caught me off guard was how big it was compared to my previous(and still in service) Vixia, an HF M300. A good 50% bigger it seems, and definitely weightier. Both very good things for me as a larger camera can accommodate a larger LCD, more buttons, etc.

  • Summary: I researched this extensively. It was highly rated. It is easy to use, and easy to transfer videos and pictures. I would buy it again.

Great Quality

  • Summary: This is a great camera to use. Especially with Canon's WD-H58 Wide Converter. You'll definitely want a bigger battery. Make sure you can deal with the AVCHD format.

Vignetting is not acceptable

Reza Gholamipour, Amazon
27 April 2012
  • Summary: I am not going to talk about all the positives that have been mentioned but what has not been said is vignetting! This camera against certain lights and backgrounds vignettes pretty bad! I wish someone would've mentioned this before I bought this camera! It took me a while to realize this is a camera problem! I have had this happened in overcast days and sunny days! When you use the IS, it gets worse! Do you think this is acceptable on a camera of this level?!

Feature packed

  • Summary: i'm not sure i know how to use a tenth of the functions available on this device but i have been pointing and shooting, recording videos and i am very impressed with all the output i have seen so far. the pictures are crisp and sharp and the audio on the video is pretty loud using the internal mic on the camcorder i really like the large internal flash memory and the available slot for memory expansion.

Failed on 2nd day

Dennis Woltering, Amazon
20 April 2011
  • Summary: It sure looked like a great camera. And initially I was quite impressed. But the second day of use, I shot a few scenes with my granddaughters and turned the camera off. A couple hours later, I turned it back on to shoot some more with them and the lcd screen was black. Then I could not power off the camera. Finally I had to take out the battery.
