"Great all round, but pan shots could be smoother."
29 August 2009
Pros: I love the light weight, easy operation, and great image quality. It also performs very well in low light conditions. Family videos look incredible when viewed on a large TV screen in full 1080p.
Cons: Biggest complaint is that when moving the camera quickly (paning) the backgound appears to studder. Also, the built in microphone is easy to adjust but difficult to get right.
Summary: Camera works great easy to use and The HD is amazing if you have a HD connection and TV Software can be difficult to figure out and doesnt take advantage of camera capabilities especially if you are trying to use the HD with it
Pros: Comfortable to Operate, Great Features, Great Picture Quality, Simple Controls, Versatile
Summary: I bought this camera for family videos and it works great. Great quality video, easy to operate, and love being able to swap the SD card out with a new one. The only negetive that I have found it that the still picture are poor while shooting video. For the price this is the best camera I found.
Pros: Comfortable to Operate, Durable, Great Features, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound, Simple Controls, Versatile
Summary: I have only used this camcorder for a week but find it be be a good one so far. I am not a videographer by any means, but I find that it is easy to use. I like how easy it is to shoot footage and to then download it onto my computer. The software that came with it is basic but also easy to use. I was able to quickly make a DVD that looks excellent on my Hi-def television.
Pros: Comfortable to Operate, Durable, Great Features, Simple Controls, Versatile
Summary: The lens and all of the hardware for this camera is excellent. The reason that I only give it 4 stars instead of 5 is because of the video editing software that comes with the camera. It is terrible, difficult to use, and not powerful enough to do anything more than piece together large chunks of raw footage. Forget about trying to cut clips or do anything more than basic, basic editing. This software is really Canon's weak point.
Pros: Comfortable to Operate, Great Features, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound, Simple Controls
