Summary: Satisfaction was not guaranteed! It does not work great and it is not in very good condition! I bought this camera to use as a "capture camera" (strictly playback into NLE program). The camera's recording function works fine, but the playback is anything but in good condition.
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.
