Product was as described and arrived just in time

Luis Blanco-Uribe, Amazon
8 January 2014
  • Summary: I was looking for a replacement camera as ours stopped working long time ago and having family over during the holidays was the perfect time to watch a good amount of tapes from when we were all younger and the kids were just babies.

Great For Digital Video Capturing (AV-DV Converter Praise)

elvisfan90, Ebay
20 March 2013
  • Summary: Bare in mind that my 5-Star rating refers to what I have used the ZR100 for; I work in video and film transfer, and I could not more highly recommend this camcorder for use as a video capture device (additional Firewire and RCA AV Cables needed). Its flawless and quality-lossless AV-to-DV converter function serves as a great means for preserving your home movies with the added assurance that you're not messing with trouble-causing external capture devices.

Fast shipping

Paul Della Torre, Amazon

  • Summary: Works well. The only issue I see is that the battery won't last long. The warning light is on all the time indicating the overall life of the battery is up. It is fairly old so it is to be expected.

Good, but has a fatal flaw...

J. Giles, Amazon
6 December 2007
  • Summary: I bought this camera for my husband for Christmas two years ago (2005). He used it and loved it...however, just after the 1 year warranty ran out, the camera malfunctioned. It will not turn on properly (you hear it, but cannot see anything on the screen) and will not eject the tape that's inside (with our precious memories on it!). We called Canon and apparently this is a COMMON and KNOWN problem with this model camera.

BIG disappointment!

Mother of two, Amazon
11 August 2007
  • Summary: I was given this as a gift. What a disappointment. We have had it in for repairs and replacement parts. And still multiple problems. It malfunctions and will not allow tapes in it or worse it just turns off and won't respond.Oh yeah now it has a noise like the motor is reving and it won't playback or tape anything. Canon only fixed it once under warrenty now again I have to pay.

Incredible color and widescreen performance for the money

Joel D. Baker, Amazon
10 May 2006
  • Summary: Operative phrase: "for the money." Honestly, I am really surprised at how well this camera has performed over the last 8 months since I bought it. I have had excellent performance in color, the widescreen is SO much cleaner and crisper than the older Sony unit I was using previously. Even when exporting to Pinnacle Studio, and rendering to DVD - the resolution and saturation were wonderful. Is it HD? no. Will it record in 24 FPS? no.

Great picture quality, no noise, best bang for the buck

B. Roy "RoyTech", Amazon
30 January 2006
  • Summary: There may be "better" camcorders out there. Better in terms of more features. But it is unlikely the video or sound quality is much better than this one (in some cases actually worse). A 720X480 video frame (Mini DV standard resolution) can only accomodate approx 340 K pixels - therefore a mega or multi mega pixel camcorder will not improve your video performance one bit. And they cost least twice as much. I was looking for something really basic.

A good starter camera -- if you find it for $200 or less

Natalie Mootz, Amazon
29 January 2006
  • Summary: This is a good camcorder for those starting out shooting digital video. If you already have a camcorder or are looking for something to make movies fit for Sundance submission with, this camcorder probably isn't for you. The Pros: It's very easy to learn how to use -- READ THE MANUAL! It's very easy to convert and control with Mac OS X & iMovie. The battery lasts a long time -- about 2 hours of shooting time (that's 2 DV tapes-full).

Grainy picture

A. Mueller, Amazon
8 January 2006
  • Summary: We received this camcorder for a Christmas gift 2005. We were not impressed at all. When we tried to record our opening gifts in a living room, the picture looked terrible. It looked bad on the view finder & even worse on the television. We thought that it was possibly the lighting at my mother's house. So we tried it at home in our living room with an over head light, and the natural light from outside, it was still terrible.
