Summary: Now that a dedicated camcorder is no longer a top priority (with DSLR offering HD video and I often travel with a Sony "GoPro") makes this perfect for travel. Even with the Canon wide lens attached it is still very small. Picture quality is good as expected.
Summary: I use my little canon professionally and it's fine for most shoots. It's easy to navigate to menus, has a hot shoe fitted for a particular size pick up mike, never has a problem. What's not ot like? Sure, I'd like a more expensive camera but can't afford one. Very happy with this one for now.
great camera , better in low light indoors conditions than most in its price range!

Summary: Great camera better in low light than most for the price point I bought this camera in 2014 after doing some research when i was looking for a video camera this one got great reviews for its ability to record indoors when lighting isnt optimum .
Summary: I have purchased a lot of camcorders for recording my video podcast... but this one is PERFECT! External Audio that can be adjusted manually (no "auto-adjust" that causes a "swoosh" sound if there is a quiet point in the recording.) And, you can choose between recording to MP4 or the native AVCHD...
Summary: Had no experience with video cameras prior to this purchase. Bought it for firstborn child. The camera is easy to use and the video is crisp and clear. The camera is a nice compact size so it is easy to carry. Fits in my hand perfectly when the camera is in use.
Summary: I read up on camcorders before buying this one. I waited and waited until the price was right, and then I pounced. I put about $200.00 into camcorder accessories including a directional microphone, zoom lens,additional batteries, etc.
Summary: The direct source had the best price around. The camera is all that I hoped it would be. Package was nice and secure. I would buy a canon camera again and go through direct source. No complaints.
