Learning this camcorder is pure FRUSTRATION

Steve "steve", Amazon

  • Summary: I've been extremely frustrated by this camcorder right out of the box. There is a 1 page fold open pamphlet but no manual included. They expect you to go to their website to view the 200 page PDF file. Slow and frustrating! When I went to download the videos to the laptop it couldn't find them on the SD card. You hafta download a transfer utility as well. Instead of providing a cd you go to a secondary website. GOOD GRIEF!

Good video, wifi is worthless

G. Lowe, Amazon

  • Summary: I like the video quality, the wifi is a joke and worthless. No remote control ability when playing back video through the tv. Screen could be brighter when outdoors. Can't say it is better than cheaper models but overall I do like it.

Great camcorder, poor wireless support

KarenB, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: The camcorder is great - smooth zoom, high-quality movies, good sound. The controls are easy to use and the touchscreen menus are a big plus. The one downside for me was the fact that the wireless remote feature does not work with my Android tablet or cell phone. Would give this 5 stars if not for the poor wireless support.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Good Image Stabilization, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD

Android App for Remote Control Does't work on current phone or tablets.

Amazon Customer, Amazon
16 June 2014
  • Summary: Apparently the CameraAccess Plus app only goes up to Android 4.2. My phone and tablet are 4.4, two revs higher than supported. I don't have any old phones or tablets so I can't use the remote control, which is why I bought this particular camera. This is a fraudulent representation on Canon's part.
