Great quality, difficult to use, terrible software
7 August 2011
Summary: Before buying this camera I read a lot of online reviews that praised the HD quality, but all commented on how user-hostile the camera is. They were right. The menu doesn't work at all unless you hit the playback button, then everything is counterintuitive.
Summary: Bought the HF-M31 version of this camera. Camera/tripod blew over in the wind and some sand got into the lens cover. Wouldn't open correctly. VERY FRAGILE! Took it to Canon repair (camera was 6 months old, still under warranty) and they want $249 to repair it!!
