Great but dated now

A. Gladstone, Amazon

  • Summary: A good DV player but easily beaten by most smartphones and even cheap IPODS. So good but dated. Just saying....

Camcorder by Canon

JayTee, Amazon
12 June 2009
  • Summary: Purchased this camcorder on a recommend from my daughter. Product delivered in fast time, no problems with packaging or the contents. Still very much a novice, but does what it says it will, and no rocket scientist education required to follow the instructions. Sound could be better, so like others, I will need to invest in an 'add on' microphone. Feel that canon could include some sort of protective carry bag, even if it meant hiking the price a wee bit.

Quality results

D S, Amazon
25 May 2009
  • Summary: It's a shame that so many people are turning to HD camcorders, as most can't compare with the footage quality of miniDV camcorders like this. At just under £100 it's such a low price for high quality results. This camcorder is so simple to use and connects instantly to a computer to download. No fancy docking cradle or tricky software involved. Robust and lightweight. I've used my canon md101 for over a year now and am delighted with it.

excellent product

C. Ronson "Big Nana", Amazon
17 June 2008
  • Summary: as a first time user with a camcorder, I have to say I'm really impressed. I took it to America with my family and am very pleased with the footage I took, lasting memories. Very good value, I left all the settings on easy so just pointed and shot the images, no "rocket scientist" needed! Definitely recommended.

Great camera for not much money

NickG, Amazon
3 April 2008
  • Summary: You get what you pay for everywhere, but sometimes you get better than you have a right to expect. I bought this on impulse 'cos it was cheaper than the compact digital stills camera I had gone to buy. It performs far better than I had any right to expect. Dead easy to use, but with a good degree of manual flexibility. Good optics, good facilities (including external mic and a proper viewfinder).

a premiership camera for championship money

N. A. Edwards, Amazon
19 March 2008
  • Summary: wasnt expecting too much for the price, just wanted something functional to take on my holiday. Got back, plugged into TV and was amazed at how crisp the footage is, both audio and video are v good quality. Also very robust in spite of the plasticy feel it got dropped a couple of times and also rained on.

Very good camera

T-rex lover, Amazon
9 March 2008
  • Summary: It does what it says, it's easy to operate and you can connect an external microphone to it which you can't do with 99% of cameras in the same price range. Great value for money.

Great for amateur film makers or ordinary home use

Dale, Amazon
19 November 2007
  • Summary: I have used this camera for just over a month now, and it has proved to be a versatile camcorder for various tasks. Out of the box it does what you'd expect it to, it records in the more modern standard of 16:9 (widescreen), however this can be easily switched to the older 4:3 option.

Might be a dodgy batch

Adrian Pope, Amazon
11 October 2007
  • Summary: Read the earlier reviews about problems with hearing the motor whirr whilst using the built in microphone. Fore armed I tried using 3 different mikes as a test before recording my only public presentation in five years, but when I plugged in the mike, no sound was recorded at all. Spoke to Canon who said to send it back, and Amazon were very good and immediately replaced it on the day before the presentation.
