1080p/30 on the cheapi(ish)

Ian K., Newegg
7 September 2009
  • Summary: Running this on Win7 X64 and Sony Vegas. I've been a big canon fan since my first real digital camera. This flash based camcorder is a great unit. I tried the Panasonic equivalent but the colors were all cartoonish and over saturated while the 1080p mode was useless with tons of blur and artifacts.
  • Pros: Excellent image quality. 1080p/30 option. Decent manual options. Accurate color.
  • Cons: Accessory cost is pretty crazy. Narrow field of view, but the wider angle adapter fixes that.

Great camcorder but accessories are a rip off

Jeffrey H., Newegg
26 August 2009
  • Summary: Canon could virtually shutdown other aftermarket companies IF they priced the NEEDED accessories at a reasonable cost. There is no way an extended battery should cost close to $200 and $60 for a needed charger? Get real guys.
  • Pros: No more mini DV tape- After borrowing a flash memory camcorder I decided to ditch the mini DV format. I will not miss many hours of playing back tape to capture footage into the PC or dropped frames. The Canon HF-11 I decided on because of video quality and the 32 gig of on board memory. I also p...
  • Cons: The prices for Canon accessories like batteries, chargers,cables is simply obscene. The standard battery is a joke and no external charger. I purchased one larger Canon battery. Aftermarket batteries do not have the Canon software that reports remaining life but are about 1/10 the cost.

No drivers for 64bit OS

Matthew M., Newegg
15 March 2009
  • Summary: Had i discovered the fine print before shelling out $800+ I would not have purchased this camera
  • Pros: Batteries last a long time. Image is great. Very small, light, compact
  • Cons: No Drivers for Vista(64) or XP(64). What is up with a technology company not including support for 64 bit OS??? Lose 1 star...

Great Camera; Poor software

Luciano B. Brasil, Amazon
27 January 2009
  • Summary: This camcorder is just great. Lightweight and great quality. Just be prepared to shoot High Def videos and have 100+MB for 1-min of recording!!! It's for sure one of the best of its kind in the market. I did an extensive research and I couldn't be happier with this camcorder.

very good

Baizhan Gabdullin, Amazon

  • Summary: Camcorder is very good. Video quality is excellent. There are two main issues: kit battery (just for 80 minutes of recording) and memory (just for 2.5 hours in highest quality mode). I bought a new battery,which is unfortunately bigger, and couple 16Gb memory cards.

Magnificent camcorder

  • Summary: Purchased this product for my mother birthday celebration party. Pictures and videos taken we're astonishingly clear in high definition. I did not give it a 5 star rating due to battery capacity.

  • Summary: Great camera loved using it on vacation, now I'm just trying to get my video to DVD I'm not very tecnologically minded so this could take me a while but hopefully once I figure it out everything about the camera would be perfect, it actually took better still photos than our high dollar digital...

Not Recommended for mounting in Car

peterpiper, Amazon
27 January 2009
  • Summary: Overall, this is an excellent 5 star camera. I bought it with the intent of recording in-car HD video at track events. Unfortunately, the OIS on this and other HD canon cameras interfere with the stability.
