Summary: This camera is very nice. We use it all the time! Its small and easy to use and the picture is awesome. The only downside to it is that you have to buy another accessory to get the stills off of the camera and on to your computer. Other than that...its great!
Summary: This is my first camcorder. I'm the kind of person who can't figure out how to set the clock on the VCR, yet I was able to take good video after just a quick review of the owners manual. I am really surprised at the excellent quality of both picture and sound - even when the lighting isn't the best. This camera was a great bargain through Amazon. I'm really glad I bought it. I highly recommend it.
Summary: I bought my camera about 18 months ago and it has worked flawlessly the entire time. Back in summer of 2000 I paid [a lot of money] and thought I got a deal. Now [the] prices [are] a true bargain. I bought the camera for shooting outdoor sports and the new baby. The camera is totaly awesome. At less than 2 lbs it is easy to carry anywhere and it works perfectly in a wide range of tempratures and conditions, 20 degrees up to 112 degrees. Worked perfectly every time.
Summary: I just opened the ZR10 today and after reading lots of reviews from different sites, I was a bit wary. However, the ZR10 peforms well in most lighting situations after tweaking with it. However, it does not work in 0 lux, but who needs to record family members in pitch black? Also, I could detect VERY SMALL sounds when I used the zoom when I played back, but they were almost unnoticeable. I have not gotten a chance to test its IEEE 1394 port yet.

Summary: Hello people! I know that you must wondering about all the BAD reviews about this camcorder. I just got the camera today and it was great. The resolution is OK for the price (...). I know it's not as great as other ZR series but this is actually OK. I like CANON products. I've been using their Powershot A20 digicam and Rebel2000 SLR camera. The function is easy to understand, nothing hard to learn. Just press this and you're OK. The SOUND is great.
Summary: After placing the order for this camcorder, I immediately began second guessing myself. I was particuarly worried about all the posts I had seen about the picture being "grainy in low light". I worried myself to the point of wishing I had just gone with a Sony Hi8. My camera arrived and the first thing I did when I took it out of the box (the battery was already charged and a 3 year old child can learn to operate it in 7 seconds) was to turn off all the lights but a...
Summary: This is my first digital camcorder and I am very impressed. It is easy to use, shoots excellent video and has great battery life. We visited Thailand late last year and the camcorder behaved flawlessly. It coped very well with lighting extremes, switching from bright, midday sun to deep shadow without missing a beat.
Summary: This miniDV camcorder I bought is the best piece of video equiptment I own, its so small and light its crazy. And to top it off the image quailty is just plain amazing. I am just an film student and it is perfect for making my movies and doing my small projects with.
Summary: I was so excited when I bought this compact and beautifully made machine. With it's color viewfinder, I was able to conserve quite a bit of battery power and still see the colors and moods I was shooting. Of course with it's more than ample battery, you can still get a lot of use out of it even using the viewing screen.
Summary: I just got it for Christmas. It's wonderful! It's small, has a great zoom (200X), has image stabilizer (and we all need that!), is easy to carry and easy to use. The VCR portion lets you play back what you've taped, and it's easy to upload everything to your computer. I have a Mac, and I've had no problem whatsoever! It's useable for PCs and Macs (with no bias... wait, they don't have minds, nevermind...).
