"Great all round, but pan shots could be smoother."

  • 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: If used properly, you can get superb images from this camera. The tiny size means poor ergonomics for anyone wanting artistic or professional results. Unbeatable for the price and size.
  • Pros: It's affordable high definition. Impressive image quality.
  • Cons: It's a consumer gadget, so it lacks the great controls of more expensive cameras.

"Provides excellent video quality, but has some quirks."

  • Pros: Fantastic video quality, flash memory, variable frame rates, variable zoom speed, HDMI out port, microphone jack, and overall build quality (doesn't feel cheap).
  • Cons: SLOW autofocus, terrible automatic controls that always cause grain, short battery life with expensive replacement batts, and the hot shoe doesn't fit regular sized accesories.

Very Good Camcorder

  • 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
  • Cons: Poor Battery Life

Great camera for the money.

  • 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
  • Cons: Poor Battery Life, Poor low light video
