This Camcorder Will Require Phone Call to Canon. The camcorder's fine but software has issues.
30 July 2014
Summary: I have to call Canon since the editing software won't jive with Windows 8.1. I'm sure it's something I'm doing and now there's a new update and I'm supposed to hook my camcorder up to my PC. Like that's going to happen. It makes great videos but I'm using windows movie maker which is just a backup. Canon has a number to call and I'm going to ask about the update too.
Summary: This camera will do in a pinch when you really have no other choice. I had cause to be glad that I had this spare one time which is why this is not a one star review. Still, the quality remains to be what it is.
Summary: This is an amazing little camera. Personally I prefer something a little larger that feels more substantial in my hand .... but the features and image quality by far outweigh the size issue I have with it. Some people may actually prefer the smaller size of this unit. Bottom line, the quality is just amazing.
Summary: Overall camcorder liked the photo quality is very good, sound happy only in the dark photo quality is not high. The stabilizer is very good. Immediately ordered a tripod. battery enough for about 1.5 hours, fits comfortably in your hand, touch like.
Great lightweight camera that delivers quality and features galore.

Summary: Excellent little camcorder. It's light, versatile and filled with features. I was pleasantly surprised at how nice the camera was. Picture quality was very nice. If I have any complaints it's that I had a tough time figuring out some advanced features one was how to take photos. I wound up having to reinitialize the internal drive and then I could save to the internal drive. I still can't figure out how to save to the SD card although it says you can.
