Summary: Simple to use. Even the technically challenged will find it easy to use. I was looking to replace both an old 8MM camcorder and a 1.3MP digital camera. This did both in one package. Buy a spare battery as quick as you can. Boy is it tiny! A paperback novel is larger than this camcorder.
Pros: Basic operations are quick and easy. Takes beautiful video. Built in mic is very sensitive. 2MP still camera capability. Compact size.
Cons: The included battery only lasts about 45 minutes when taking video.
Summary: We have been using the Canon Optura 50 miniDV camcorder for almost a month now and we are very pleased with its performance. The picture quality is very good, it is easy to operate, and the digital camera is easy to use with good quality pictures.
Summary: i'm a mac user who wanted a family camera so i can input footage into the mac and edit the footage. after spending way too much time researching video cameras online and at brick & morter stores, i purchased the canon optura 50.
Summary: This is an outstanding single chip camcorder. They don't make them like this anymore unless you are willing to spend upwards of $2,000. It has excellent automatic features but the value lies in the manual controls for shutter, aperture, standard/widescreen, white balance and audio.
Summary: Camescope assez simple d'utilisation avec d'excellente optique pour une qualite de prise de vue quasi irreprochable, les deux seuls inconvenients sont l'absence de torche integree et un stabilisateur d'image pas super performant.
Pros: Tres complet et qualite de prise de vue quasi irreprochable
Cons: Pas de torche/Stabilisateur d'image pas super performant
