Fantastic Quality, Short Battery Life

Excerpt: Image and sound quality here are spectacular, and the wide-angle option makes what'd otherwise be boring talking head style video look more interesting. Only thing I dislike about the camera is the less-than-an-hour of battery life while shooting HD or better than HD. With the backlight and brightness of the touch panel turned down all the way the battery life was still not super. I recommend you get 2 additional batteries with your Vixia Mini.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good in Low Light, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound, Large Clear LCD
Summary: Haven't used it much as of yet But what have done with it is good. The picture are very good the video is very good as well but I have to say the battery life sucks big time. I also like the way you can transfer all your videos and picture's to your computer its fast and easy.
Better than a GoPro for time lapses and man on the street interviews

Summary: I wanted an extremely wide angle camera to do time lapses of the geoengineering program (chemtrails) over my city. I had been using a DSLR, but the thousands of shutter actuations were taking their toll on my D800. And consumer camcorders simply wouldn't go wide enough. So I got a GoPro Hero3+ and did the best I could. The main problem I ran into was that I couldn't hook it up to DC power so that the battery wouldn't die on me midway through a multi-hour time lapse.
Summary: Length:: 8:20 Mins The Canon Vixia Mini is the best pocket flip-type pocket camcorder I've ever tested. It has features that are unique in the marketplace that make it a top choice for selfie shoots, and time lapse recording all in full HD video quality. Why I bought it: Unlike the intended audience of the camcorder (video blogger), I bought the Canon Vixia Mini to record presentations that I give to hospitals, clinics so that those important doctors, C level executives,...
Summary: An interesting gadget which is small and very easy to carry around. It is very basic and doesn't have any zoom function.The lens is ultra wide-angle and has two settings, wide and closer. The definition is very good indeed and the sound reproduction is very acceptable. It does give some rather odd distortion with the lens on both settings but this can be rather interesting.
Summary: This has nothing to do with a GoPro but still it is a thing of its own. Great for bloggers and quick reviews, nice images and sound but bad battery life get a second battery for sure ! Nice solid build but slow to start up.
Summary: UNTIL this thing came along, I've bought too many crappy mini video cameras They cost maye 2/3rd the price Most of them had no viewing screen And the one that had - the layout was kind of not so easy to manoeuvre I like that: a. the i\0 switch also controls the lens cap b. the shutter release button (for stills) on the left c.
