Conclusion: Great camera and great output. Bought it to stream but found out afterwards it can not. Overall A+ just writing a review to make sure someone else does not buy this camera to try to live stream.
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!
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.
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.

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.
