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.
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.
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.
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.
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...
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.
