Great image, poor "feel" in your hand

Robert Cozzi, Amazon

  • Summary: I've used higher-end ProSumer camcorders for a while and virtually every other generation of video camcorder since 1980. I recently used a Sony HC3 HDV handheld but gave that to my daughter when I got this HV30. The HV30 has a great picture and all that. So I think I'll focus on what's either really cool, or a bit off-putting for a buyer. Really Cool: Video quality is the best you can find on today's one-chip HDV camera.

What I Consider A Deal-Breaker Issue.

Mark Nicholas, Amazon

  • Summary: Everything you read about this camera is true. I owned one for a couple of days and the picture was extraordinary... the camera was a breeze to use... And then I turned up the audio. Whoa. What's that humming?! Now, I had seen plenty of reviews (even on the older HV20) warning of a little tape noise in the audio. I own two other Mini DV cameras, and you do hear a little bit of the mechnism working. But this is different. It's disruptive.

Disappointing camera,compared to previous Canons I have owned.

  • Summary: As a confirmed Canon fan, I still did all the research and decided on the HV30. Reluctantly, I have to say, I am very disappointed.The picture quality is very good, and the features and connectivity are excellent, however the sound quality is completely spoilt by the recorded tape and other electronic noise.

Empfehlenswerter Camcorder

  • Summary: es wurde schon viel positives über den Camcorder hier berichtet, dem ich mich gerne anschließe. Worauf ich nur aufmerksam machen möchte, ist: dass eine Speicherkarte und entsprechende miniDisk dazu bestellt werden müssen, leider bei der Lieferung nicht dabei.

Guter Camcorder, aber...

Malte, Amazon
26 May 2008
  • Summary: Insgesamt bin ich zwar durchaus zufrieden, aber es gibt Dinge, die zu beachten sind: - Ohne extra Weitwinkelobjektiv stößt man recht schnell an die Grenzen - die meisten Plätze sind wohl nicht so breit, dass man das Gebäude vor sich in Gänze drauf bekommt... - Canon verkauft den Camcorder als "Full-HD"-Gerät. (also 1920x1080i). Das mag für die Ausgabe über HDMI zwar gelten, die Aufnahme aufs Band erfolgt jedoch (Konform zum HDV-Standard) in 1440x1080i anamorph.
