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.
Feels too light to hold up with professional use, but there is nothing else

Summary: So Far this camera seems pretty good....Excellent Video, cristal clear. The only thing is that it is all plastic..and very light....Maybe I am just use to a heavy camera, I really haven't used it that much yet just enough to try it out...
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.
Summary: I love this little Canon. I bought it as a second camera for doing two shots of my cooking show. I have a Canon XA10, which I love, love, love. This little Canon can hold its ground with my XA10. Good picture and good sound. You do have to manually program it to get the best results.
Summary: Clear precise video even in relatively low light conditions. I have noticed that if you are videoing something moving the video is not terribly clear but for still or low motion it is excellent at least in mp4 formatted video.
Summary: I purchased Sony HDRPJ710V for all of the bells and whistles. The Sony camera was good on specs but failed to deliver real results. It went back to Amazon. I owned a Canon HG10 camcorder, which was great little camcorder at that time 2007.
