Summary: I hooked up this camera to my iMac DV, connected it to the Firewire conneciton, turned on the computer and everything worked great the first time out. I was able to create, edit, and produce a Web film in less than a day.
Summary: I've owned the ultura since late January and so far have been completely satisfied with it.. is has a great range of features and turns out incredible quality footage. I also bought a DV Capture card for my computer, and the ultura allows for easy editing of videos.
Summary: We went into the store prepared to buy the sony TR 103 and ended up with this canon. It is alot smaller than the sony and the lens is supposed to be better. One thing about these camcorders is to get the smallest one you can afford because it is so easy to take with you.
Works fine, but battery discharges fast while in camera

Summary: This works great for me! The only problem is that if you leave the battery inside, it'll discharge even with the power off. Doesn't have all the top of the line features, but the price is great. The zoom could have been better, but I don't have any complaints.
Summary: My new Canon Ultura's audio isn't working after owning it only 2 weeks! Monday I'll be driving 100 miles to the nearest authorized Canon repair place. I just hope they can repair it before I go on vacation. Plus, the zoom is fairly useless past 64X.
