Would not buy another Canon product

Jason Chittenden, Amazon
4 March 2011
  • Summary: I received this as a birthday gift in preparation for our new baby. After one month, all of the footage we have has a background ticking noise. In low light (like indoors at night) the picture is grainy. Included software only writes DVDs or uploads to Youtube.

Worthless and Frustrating

Timothy Mott, Amazon
2 March 2011
  • Summary: This camera is very convenient for shooting video. HOWEVER . . . if you decide that you actually want to export the video to disc to share with someone, forget it. The software that comes with it is something less than intuitive and the manuals must have been written by Microsoft because they give...

Short battery life kills this camera.

Eric V., Newegg
9 November 2010
  • Summary: If one didn't mind buying two or three additional batteries for this camera - it probably would suffice for the common uses of less than a half an hour of recording at a time. If you expect to record events longer than 45 minutes - expect to buy a new camcorder.
  • Pros: Above average capture and video clarity. Ability to snap pictures with relative ease.
  • Cons: When it comes to video and digital devices - the fault to end all faults is battery life. This camera is no exception - claiming to have a battery life of 82 minutes (I don't know the exact number but it was near an hour and a half) - was a huge miscalculation. I owned this camera for the videogr...

Dont buy this camera! Useless indoors ot at night

Ashwin Shah, Amazon
4 May 2010
  • Summary: Honestly if you intend to use this camera at home or at night just don't buy it. Or be prepared to spend on lighting. The videos taken at home are terrible. I get better videos with my phone camera. I bought it to take videos of our new born. I don't think we will use this camera for that.

Don't Buy

MaxZ, Amazon
4 May 2010
  • Summary: Camera makes a noise that the mic picks up and when you play back the video you can hear it. Some reviews say you can turn it off, but you can't.

Don't buy this if you like to be in control.

evilwiesle, Amazon
4 May 2010
  • Summary: I am currently a camp videographer and this is the camera I was given. Minus the fact that it shoots in HD, it's garbage. It doesn't know what white is, it took days to figure out how to manual focus and it adjust really slowly, it switches back to auto-iris every time you turn it on, the zoom gets...

I DESPISE THIS CAMERA

Book Lover, Amazon
4 May 2010
  • Summary: This is my first video camera and it makes me want to throw it off of a very high cliff and then jump myself. Looks great, but you will quickly notice that it makes an annoying chirping sound which also shows up on the recording.

HATE IT- IMPOSSIBLE TO USE

M. Eydenberg, Amazon
4 May 2010
  • Summary: I admit I am no techie - if you are not a computer genius do NOT buy this camera or any like it. It is completely impossible to understand any of the symbols, I don't know what any of the buttons are for, I don't know what the code words mean, and I cannot upload any videos. I hate it.

Big Bucks Poor Results

jc, Amazon
24 April 2010
  • Summary: Hi all, I would like to share my experience with this camcorder, this is only about product experience and nothing to do with Amazon. Canon's new HF R10 is a nice small size HD camera with 8GB of built in memory. Memory is expandable by using SD cards.

makes a weird noise that gets picked up by mic

J. Gewirtz, Amazon
21 April 2010
  • Summary: I purchased this camera when the refurbished HF20 I had previously purchased came with a defective screen. I was really excited since the price of the HF R10 was comparable to the HF20 refurb. and I thought it would also be comparable in features and video quality.
