Have Camera . . . will Travel . . . a Lifetime of Memories
7 days ago
Summary: We have purchased two of these cameras because we take many trips and always want to have equipment ready for the next adventure. This is a great camera and we have recorded many, many wonderful events with it. We will leave copies of our films/DVDs for our five children, our nine grandchildren and six great grandchildren to remember us after we are gone. We also use a Canon Elph for digital photos, but action movies are much more exciting.
Summary: This is my second Canon Camcorder . . I wanted the HD . . LOVE the remote and use it all the time . . The only thing that is a negative is Canon is NOT Mac friendly . . . I get things to work . . just not as fluently as I would like . . .
Summary: Bought this one to replace an identical model that was dropped salt water! It was just as advertised, practaclly brand new and in perfect working order. It is a outstanding camera and I strongly recommend this model.
Great to capture all moments, spoken and acted out. Wonderful ...EVERYTHING

Summary: I changed to a Canon from a 5 year old Sony. Love THIS Camcorder. Have not yet downloaded movies to computer and have to say I'm a bit intimidated about it, but overall I think this camera is great. I have the wide angle lens(extra piece) and can't take it off, love the depth and width of shots. Camcorder/camera performs wonderfully, easy to hold, light-weight enough while still feeling like your holding a well-made electronic.
Pros: The camera is very compact, lightweight, incredible picture quality, fast operations (because of flash based recording), versatile (though proprietary) shoe which allows for various attachments (like the DM-100 directional microphone).
Cons: The viewing screen could be a little bigger. There is no viewfinder for bright, sunny days. However, you can increase the brightness of the screen and purchase a hood that blocks light from the viewing screen. Battery time is a little low.
