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. Thanks for the fast shipping
Summary: I am astounded at how cheap this thing is, because it functions like a much more expensive camcorder. The analog input (record from old VHS family videos!) is VERY useful, I don't know if you can find that on any other cameras in this price range. LOVE IT!
Pros: Incredible quality, the DigicDV chip recreates colors very richly. Controls are solid, feels expensive. Actually made in Japan, unlike some cheaper Chinese cameras. This may be the BEST budget camera out there.
Cons: Battery meter is nearly useless, jumps up and down, but the battery has lasted at least the length of every tape that I have recorded, so I don't worry about it too much.
Summary: This is the ultimate question. Before this issue lets reveal a small lie of Canon. This is how they advertise this product: "The ZR100 features both a DV terminal (IEEE 1394 or Firewire) and USB terminal for connection to a DV-compatible computer or another DV-camcorder.
Summary: Me and my wife decided to get a digital camcorder since our old-fashion vhs camcorder finally bit the dust. Yes, I bought this camcorder because it was one of least expensive digital camcorders out there.
Summary: I recieved this camera for my graduation present. I really enjoy the little size and its capability. The digital effects that are possible to use are kind of neat, you can choose between easy and several different settings to be able to capture the best picture for the things you are shooting.
