Brilliant Quality, but had to RMA

Joshua C., Newegg
27 March 2010
  • Summary: Had to RMA because the one I got wouldn't stop recording when you push the button, but would randomly stop when you want to keep recording. Newegg was perfect in handling the replacement - A+ customer service.
  • Pros: Brilliant sharpness and clarity, True 24p at full HD, nice lens for the size, clean menus flash memory
  • Cons: No viewfinder, CMOS, manual controls are hard to use via joystick (would prefer different controls, maybe a wheel on the back and focus ring) - but I can't complain at this price I'll address the other issues: For the "getting onto your darn computer" guy... Make sure your editor is Canon ACVHD c...

Great little camcorder

Joao Santos, Amazon
8 February 2010
  • Summary: This is a great little camcorder for the price. Very good zoom lenses (15x) and image stabilization technology. The camera doesn't come with internal memory but SDHCs are cheap enough so you can get a few. I'd recommend a pair of 16Gigs.

My First HD Camcorder

H. Sohal, Amazon
1 February 2010
  • Summary: is a good product. I bought this product about a month ago and took lot of time working on this camcorder. I like the image quality and the video that it takes. Good size, and is portable. The only drawback I see it the pixela software it comes with to download this image.

Great HD camera!

Anonymous, Newegg
1 January 2010
  • Summary: This is my first camcorder I ever bought, it was over my price range, but for the money this camera will do everything I was looking for. It sets up fast, the menus are easy to use, and the quality is GREAT...way better than anything I saw at 550$ and lower.
  • Pros: Great outdoor, lightweight, easy to setup and use, takes great pictures, great color, compact size!
  • Cons: Battery life, flash memory can sometimes be hard to find cheap (recording in HD, it chews through memory FAST), low light recording (indoors with table lamps) is not very good.

Canon Vixia HF200 HD

Kevin M, Amazon
14 December 2009
  • Summary: Great camcorder so far. You will want to turn off the image stabilizer feature if you ever pan with the camera. If image stabilizer is on you get a lot of image pause and jerk when you move. With it turned off you have great HD video!

Great Camcorder-note about sd cards

T. Sassman, Amazon
12 December 2009
  • Summary: So far no complaints about the camera. One thing about the SD cards. The owner manual says to use class 4 or higher SDHC cards. What it doesn't say is that the camera will only recognize class 4 and 6 of the higher end cards.

Good Camera

Paul M., Newegg
17 November 2009
  • Summary: Others have complained about low ligh performance, but they were probably using the full-auto mode that extends the shutter speed, resulting in 'grain' and smearing. By setting to fixed shutter speed, and adjusting the aperture with the exposure adjust, recording is fine.
  • Pros: Small, lightweight, very nice LCD screen, Lots of options. Easy to use, once the setups are understood. Good storage capacity, 16G Class 6 card works fine, with 2 hrs storage in HD mode. (standard battery dies before card max reached). Transfer software to PC is easy to use, and DVD's made easily...
  • Cons: Canon battery packs are very expensive, and their 'smart battery' function attempts to lock you in to their accessories. Happily, the camera will work with 3rd party components.

Nice! Nice!

Ron D., Amazon
5 November 2009
  • Summary: Yes, this is a terrific camcorder, like most of the other reviewers have said. I've had it now for a few weeks and here's what I have noticed: 1. I have never had a Canon before, so the menu took a little getting used to, but it all makes sense once you start using it. 2.
