Poor Reliability - Camcorder stopped working after a year
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.
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.

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.

Pros: Lovely design and seems rugged, nice images
Cons: Image stabilisation kicks into destroy the picture if vibration is slightly too harsh
