Very Good Camera w/ mic input

Timothy Minor, Amazon
13 February 2013
  • Summary: I use this camera at a sports production & mainly got it for the mic input..the only bad thing about this camera is when you use the mic input & a/v/ output at the same time there is a loud humming noise that you can hear through the mic input so I choose to use this camera without running it out to a dvd recorder or other monitor source while recording.

Very short battery life--software has issues with AMD processors

J. Toney, Amazon
23 January 2013
  • Summary: I was disappointed with the extremely short battery life. When I tried to make DVDs of a few videos, the software would not work properly. You have to "drag and drop" the video into an area to make the DVD. The drag and drop function would not work. I called the software maker. After going through my computer to remove any programs that might interfere (there weren't any), the tech rep said the issue was the AMD processor in my HP computer.

Canon DECEPTIVE?

Sandra Truman, Amazon
16 September 2012
  • Summary: While I like the camera in general, it is easy to use, The battery that comes with the camera will only last about fifteen minutes. It was dead before I was through searching through the camera. Canon!!! be honest. If you order the aftermarket batteries they will work ok but they will not communicate with the camera. This means that the camera will not warn you when the batteries are going dead. This is not a big deal if you have extra batteries!

Battery life is terrible

Skippy1, Amazon
19 May 2012
  • Summary: I agree with earlier reviewer. Cannon is running a scam to get people to buy an extra battery. The camera itself is pretty good, but with just 25 min of battery life what are you going to record? Nice profit plan for the company, but not very ethical. I would think twice about buying another Canon product.

Verify details with other sites

BMM, Amazon

  • Summary: The camera itself is great. However, as of this writing, the description is inaccurate. It says "dual sdxc card slots" when there is only one. In addition, it says "Built-in Wi-Fi for wireless video transfer to a PC or online sharing sites likes YouTube and Facebook" implying you can use the Wi-Fi to upload to Facebook or YouTube. That is not possible, you must use the PC software to do the upload.
