Excerpt: When looking to purchase a new digital camcorder I weighed up the facts that I had to hand. My friend had just bought a sony camcorder and he had his fair share of problems with it, which all got sorted in the end, But who needs the head-ache. So I steered clear of sony. I own 3 digital cameras which I have bought over the years and 2 of them are Canon, So I know that I was buying into a good quality brand that wouldn't let me down.
Pros: Very compact unit, lots of features and very easy to use . A very nice camera for the price
Cons: To be honest, I cannot think of any disadvantages that spring to mind . I like the camera a lot
Summary: I bought this model because I had an older Canon model that couldn't upload video direct to my Mac Mini. I checked various web sites looking for infromation and this one seemed about right. Good features, good price. The controls were very similar to my 6 year old mini-DV camera - so I found it very easy to use. The only downside was that it didn't have a firewire cable with it. I happened to have one and, once it was plugged in, it just worked.
It does everything you need, simply wonderful....!

Summary: I drove my Wife absolutely mad and never saw her as I was constantly thumbing through magazines and looking at reviews online when I had decided to upgrade to digital from my old analogue Samsung thing! Spending hours at a time and being in Sales for the last 15 years, I felt I knew everything about most camcorders. I knew what I wanted, something you could just switch on and use (easy for kids) and also something that had everything on it if I wanted to fiddle about.
Summary: Got this camcorder becasue it has more features than similar Sony 22 model, and here was only a few pounds more (list price is 50 pounds more). Build quality seems good, optics are good, and there is a nice widescreen lens which can be fitted if needed. Excellent feature set, good battery life, and good night mode (including a bright white LED for when its really dark).
Excerpt: We recently purchased this camera and took it back the next day. We chose it because it had a lot of features and we felt it was good value for money. We paid £349. Have a look at the specification below to see why we chose it: -Ease of use with a powerful 22x optical zoom and quality SXGA digital still capabilities. -'Super Night Mode' allows quality shooting in low light conditions. -'Automatic Easy Mode' offers point-and-shoot simplicity.
Pros: Looks good
Cons: Loud operating noise which is picked up by the microphone
Excerpt: Если быть честным и откровенным, то как только я ее купил, поснимал, понял, что просто выбросил деньги. Хотя перед этим начитался обзоров. Правда я искал JVC-230, но решил, что вроде Canon, то взять можно...и ошибся. Камеры Canon плохи, если говорить о видео и в данном случае об этом экземпляре. Снимал много, но все самое удачное на улице, в помещении при 2-х лампах безбожно шумит.
Pros: В уловиях дневного света, при настройке баланса белого вручную получается великолепное видео. Все четко и красиво!
Cons: Просто отвратительное качество в более темном помещении, нечеткость фокуса, или периодическое веньюнтирование, особенно когда в тени. Электронный стабилизатор портит всю картинку.
Excerpt: На работе купили, взял погонять на выходной. Снимал на природе, на дисплей смотрю - душа радуется, все ярко и красиво.Перегнал на компутер - серо и пасмурно, а еще Canon называется. У меня фотоапарат Canon A95 видео лучше снимал (в смысле картинки, движение было с тормозами, скорость всего 10 кадров/сек.)Не ожидал конечно от Канона такой камеры, хорошо не моя.
