Excellent consistent results, no problems

Peter H. Watkins "Hallelucy", Amazon

  • Summary: I've had this for about a year. My last video camera was a canon from 10 years ago. This camera is much easier to use, is well made, light weight, and has just the features I was looking for. But before buying one, you should see the Canon website that helps you choose exactly the features that are important to you, and you will have a recommendation. This is the one that came up for me, and I was pleased to see it at such a great price!

  • Summary: This camera works great. Used it to film my kid's vollyball game and band concerts. Works really well in low light and the image stabilization is amazingly good. Very pleased overall.

One of the best camcorders for the money, EVER

Robin Krohn, Amazon

  • Summary: I can't begin to explain how much I love this camcorder. I got this thing when it was only $300 at Costco, and I couldn't have picked a better deal. Pros: First: The thing has amazing image quality. The colors come out rich and amazing. And the fact that it has a flash and a 3.89 Megapixel image quality, just adds to it's long list of pros. It also has a 15X optical zoom, and the Powered Image Stabilizer compensates well for the zoom.

Excellent Camcorder

Brian Lusted, Amazon

  • Summary: The thing I record the most is the sailing my wife and I do. I mount the camcorder on a horizon leveling camera mount made for boating. In early July I bought the Sony HDR CX160 and used it to record 2 of our sails. On both recordings the image jittered up an down quite a bit which became annoying to watch. I then found out why. I subscribed to Consumer Reports and their rating for the CX160's image stabilizer is only "Fair".

It is good camera for the money.

Mr. Vadim Permakoff, Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased this camcorder in Costco and I love it. You can see the clip I took using this camcorder: [...], no video enhancement software used. The resolution I set for Youtube is 720p, but I could make it 1080i, I just did not use it there. The quality of picture is very good in day lighting.

Great Camera with Minor Problems

F. Sharp "Frank - Semi-Pro", Amazon
12 June 2011
  • Summary: My background in movie making goes back to when I carried a large VHS camera all over Spain some 20 years ago. Since that time, I have had a long procession of Canon and Sony cams, all of high quality. I have had the VHS, 8mm, super 8mm, mini-disc and finally flash memory. Perhaps the feature rich Elura 90 was my best one with its built-in hot shoe and threaded lens barrel.
