High quality portable camcorder that doubles as a camera.
20 September 2011
Summary: Great Camcorder with lots of features. Really simple to operate, high quality videos and pictures. A little small for my hands, yet it seems to be the perfect size for women and teenagers. Lightweight and just the right size to carry on that family outing to capture videos and still pictures.
Great camara to have if you want clear and quality videos!

Summary: We had wanted this camara since it came out. It is so easy to use. It is small and compact. It takes wonderful and clear videos. The quality is a lot better than most camaras we seen. We are really enjoying having it. Thank you!
Summary: Solid-state recording on SD chip means no tape motor noise to disturb music recordings. Good microphone available for top-mounted "hot shoe". Also can plug in external mic. Tiny, light camera reduces fatigue of operator, comfortable to hold. Good part-mechanical, part-digital zoom. Control for manual focus is clumsy. Manual for included software could be better. Canon's phone support is friendly, free, and available forever, but personnel could know the product better.
Summary: This camera is great. The reason I bought it is because it has a mic and headphone jack. This is necessary for video interviews to get good audio. I have done inside interviews as well as wildlife filming with this camera and the videos are clear and lighting is great. It has all the options that I wanted in a proconsumer camera.
Summary: What makes me choose this camcorder is its design. It's small, compact but it delivers what it really meant to do. The only draw back I can think of is the screen size. If this like 3" it will be awesome.
"I LOVE this camcorder. It is absolutely amazing."

Pros: I love the video quality of course. Crystal clear HD! Also, image stabilization is rather good. Easy to make dvds for standard definition if your home is not HD ready (like mine is not). Love the cinema fliming mode. What fun!
Cons: Hard to even complain, but: Tends to have a little trouble focusing really close on certain things. Camera and software manuals could be better. Software very basic. Strap is uncomfortable and hurts my hand after a few minutes. Short battery life.
Summary: Product works very well. Clear images, easy software to download. I like it having no moving parts and right now have 8 megs of ram and it works for 3 or 4 hours are SP speed. Small size and quick menu choices. Has port for external mic which is important in some situations. Most don't have this. Great.
Pros: Comfortable to Operate, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound, Simple Controls
Summary: This is my first HD video camera and i was surprised at the quality of it. I use it mostly for home movies but it could be used in many other applications. I like that it is simple and easy to use and it works with Mac computers, my only cons about it are short battery life, and because its so small it is sometimes hard to get a stable video. Other than that, great camera!
Pros: Comfortable to Operate, Durable, Simple Controls, Versatile
Summary: I wish it had zebra stripes, but for the $ very nice. Limitations-low light and quirky focus joystick. Joystick focus works, just weird getting used to... 17mbs max, but definitely nice picture. AVCHD artifacting and file size are part of the deal, learning to deal with it. Amazing quality for $.
Pros: Great Picture Quality, Simple Controls, Value
