Beware, the video is really 1440x1080 not 1920x1080

Paul H., Newegg

  • Summary: I would have returned it if Newegg's return policy on this item allowed for it. Does not come with HDMI cable. A standard mini-HDMI to HDMI cable will work, no need to pay 10x extra for a Canon-branded cable. The included battery is pretty weak.
  • Pros: Decent picture quality in very well-lit situations but grainy in low-light (such as indoor lighting). Good frame-rate, saves avchd format on HDD which can be copied to PC and played without conversion. The videos it produces work fine with Kdenlive on Linux.
