Poor Reliability - Camcorder stopped working after a year

avatar, Amazon
4 July 2010
  • Summary: Exactly after a year, none of the functions worked when the camcorder was powered on. The camcorder was well maintained and used sparingly. Canon's technical phone support staff had me hard reset the camcorder, and when that didn't work, he asked me to send the camcorder to Canon for repair.

Good Vids, BAD software!

RIchard B., Newegg

  • Summary: Very tiny, about the size of a 10oz pop can. I'm used to the old Hi8 cam corders. Manual is a small bible. Helped a friend buy this through his account. Bad move.
  • Pros: Great videos and pics!
  • Cons: Good luck TYRING to get the videos ONTO your darn computer! The encluded software is USELESS at best, and apparently is just Video editing software. There is no encluded software to upload the videos to your computer. When the Camera is plugged in, the card does not show up, when the card is plug...

Problems....

Theresa B., Newegg
22 October 2009
  • Summary: If you are going to have this camera mounted on a tripod in a studio shooting non-moving subjects this is probably a great camera for you. If you plan to shoot anything that is moving, or want to use this indoors in a medium to low light situation you are going to be disappointed.
  • Pros: Good picture quality for a well lit subject that is not moving.
  • Cons: Newegg's return policy on this item sucks... I love newegg, but no returns? Come on. I wanted to return this camera because: 1. Low light performance is TERRIBLE. If you don't have the subject flooded with light there is a huge amount of noise in the picture. 2. Anything that moves in the frame i...

Interesting yet flawed

  • Excerpt: I have just bought one of these cameras and am about to send it back! Whilst it is beautifully engineered on the outside, the image stabilisation is lacklustre to say the least. OK if held in the hand, yet when it has any form of harsher vibration it makes pictures that are completely unusable.
  • Pros: Lovely design and seems rugged, nice images
  • Cons: Image stabilisation kicks into destroy the picture if vibration is slightly too harsh

canon Mini-Zubehörschuh inkompatibel

deltus60, Amazon
2 January 2011
  • Summary: Canon Camcorder (zumindest die Legira HF200) haben einen "Mini-Zubehörschuh". Der Standart - Zubehörfuss von anderen Herstellern (z.B. Mikrofone, Videoleuchten) passt da nicht rein! Einen Adapter scheint es nicht zu geben.
