Summary: I like specially the flip screen, which allows for more angles and selfles without loss of quality, yet the led is too small and dark and you can only have a real idea of the result once you export it to your computer. Of course the images tend to turn out brilliant.
Summary: This may be a really great camera depending on your intended use. However, I was only interested in one thing: Using it in combination with my iPhone or iPad as a live monitor over WiFi, specifically for use as a backup camera in various vehicles. The cameras wide angle lens would be perfect for this application and I was really excited to try it out.
Love Canon Products, but Ease of use would be nice

Summary: Overall I am a Canon lover and this mini camcorder is fantastic but it is not that intuitive and the soft copy of the users manual is close to 200 pages on the CD that comes with the camcorder -- Not an easy chore to get through that many pages and really don't want to print the manuel out -- would be nice if the manuel was more useful -- i.e.
Excerpt: One of the greatest features is the wide angle lens. There are two settings, close and far. Far is handy to film objects that appear at a distance so in a small room you can capture lot's of detail with the effect of filming at a distance. also can position many different angles with the built in tripod.

Pros: Easy to Use, Good in Low Light, Large Clear LCD
Cons: Limited Zoom, No image stabilization, Poor Still Image
Summary: This thing is nice and it works but it has no LED and it is totally naked to the world for scratches and abuse. I acidentally dropped it and as it nose dived into the pavement and kissed the hard unforgiven concrete I silently let out a barrage of expletives. I had just received it and couldn't find a case for it. My worst fears were confirmed. It cracked the screen in half, still works but it is broken.
Summary: I like the camera a lot but it doesn't grow on me Flaws: Very easy to accidentally touch-screen the video recording Very hard to delete files - for some reason, when the mSD card's in the PC, I can't drag the file to delete it The one time I TRIED deleting the files in camera, ended uo deleting the whole folder The touch-screen is not that sensitive at times - and too sensitive During recording, CAN'T switch between fish-eye and normal lens SO, either the whole video has...

Summary: Als "Lifestyle Video" bezeichnet Canon selbst den Legria Mini Camcorder und trifft damit voll ins Schwarze. Der Legria ist mit einem regulären Camcorder nicht zu vergleichen. Sowohl Einsatzbereich, als auch das Handling des Geräts sind neu und ermöglichen ganz neue Einsatzgebiete. Per Standfuß kann das Gerät beispielsweise einfach auf dem Boden platziert werden um von hier aus in ganze neuen Winkeln zu filmen.
