Summary: Camera did not work due to hung up cassette door. Could not insert new tape. Also battery was not included so could only run from AC adapter. Found same camera on Craigs list and ordered it. Will use the Ebay one for parts.
Summary: The tape would not work after only using it a few times. The camera was never droped always kept in a case when not filming. Will only work now with the card. Customer support is non-existant. Will never buy a canon camcorder again. Canon should stick to still cameras only.
Ejection problems have killed this camera -- and apparently many others

Summary: We bought this camera a little over a year ago but have rarely used it. However, just when I need it the most to capture a family event, the camera starts beeping and tells me that the tape must be ejected. So I tried to eject it, but it did not eject. Moved maybe a millimeter then moved back. I don't think we put more than several hours of use on this thing and it broke. Very unhappy.
