  • Excerpt: Good camcorder for general uses. I use it in my hot rod car, for family events and anything else I want on video. It does a good job for it's size. I compared it to others in it's class and price range and decided on this one for the quality of the Canon name and it had better video than some competitors.
  • Pros: Compact size, Easy to Use, Performs Well

Great little camera.

  • Excerpt: I use this Video camera to record activities of the club I belong to. I have a dji phantom 2 with a Gopro attached. The footage combines very well. It's best to use a card reader to upload video to computer. I could not get large files to upload fromthe the camera. The video color is very good but you will need to do some work on the sound in post. I have not tried the external speaker jack.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Good Image Stabilization, Great Picture Quality, Great Zoom, Zoom range/performance
  • Cons: Battery Life

Not bad for a compact camcorder

King Nguyen, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a good camcorder. I purchased it for my mother. I think the only thing I hate about it is having to set my memory card for it and then I wouldn't be able to use my SD card with any other device I own or i risk deleting it.

Small, but very capable

John M. Cooper "jmc", Amazon

  • Summary: Got excellent results using this camera for a 2-hour Veteran's History Project session. The only caveat is that it picked up a hum from my headphones plugged into the AV/headphone jack (yes, I had switched it from AV to headphone). I would recommend unplugging headphones after a sound test, but I consider this user headspace-and-timing, and the issue may be with the headphones themselves.

  • Summary: so far camera works fine. Dissapointed that has manual shutter. Every time you use it you have to remember to open and close the shutter door.

Great little camcorder, but I hope you didn't buy it for the smartphone control.

Milton, Amazon

  • Summary: The camera works as advertised, has all the specs I needed.... but unfortunately the smartphone app leaves a lot to be desired (at least on Android). You won't be able to install it directly from the play store for a lot of devices (no support for the Galaxy S4, nexus line of devices, the HTC One and OneX, etc.), so just installing it will be a pain. (Apparently, it's only compatible with iOS 5, too, so it's not like you'll have much luck with an iPhone, either).
