Eating tape, Garbled picture

B. Hiestand, Amazon
24 December 2002
  • Summary: I have the same problems that everyone else is talking about. I get several bars across the screen that make the picture not viewable. I noticed that the camcorder was making a very faint noise that sounded like the tape was wrinkling.

Great while it lasted

Happy for awhile!!!!, Amazon
14 December 2002
  • Summary: We bought the Canon ZR25 right before our daughter was born. It took excellent video but was slightly grainy and did have some problems with it trying to focus on other objects. We could live with that because it was so easy to use.

Defective Product-Avoid

Amazon
4 December 2002
  • Summary: We bought this camera about 2 years ago. Shortly after buying it, the camera stopped functioning. The only way to fix Canon Camcorders is to send them to one of two Canon repair facilities. We sent it in and it was repaired under warranty. Annoying but fine.

Wonderful!

Amazon
23 November 2002
  • Summary: My husband and I were expecting our first baby in January of 02, so we started looking (and looking...) for a digital camcorder. The camcorder had to be able to take still pictures for e-mailing, because all of the grandparents live out of state.

Tape jamming problem

Amazon Customer, Amazon
18 November 2002
  • Summary: I purchased this camcorder in November and have successfully used 4 tapes. Very easy to use and compact. Most still pictures ended up being dark, but in regular daylight most video was of good quality. Last month, I inserted a brand new tape and it ended up jammed.

Major Audio annoyance

Christopher A, Amazon
10 November 2002
  • Summary: I purchased this Camcorder after reading every review I could find. I have to say that I love the size and function of the camera. The pictures are great and its solidly built. BUT.....and this is a BIG but, the humming on the audio is absolutely maddening.

OK, I Changed My Mind

Joe Albanese, Amazon
29 October 2002
  • Summary: I never used a camcorder before and several people strongly recommended this one. At first, I was impressed by how light it was and compact but between the instruction manual and what seemed liked 200 small switches, hidden doors and gadgets, it got confusing.

Missed Opportunity!

David De Santis, Amazon
17 October 2002
  • Summary: I purchased the ZR25 for the Christmas holidays. I was attracted by its snazzy design, compact size, great ergonomics and price (especially when considering Canon's free leather bag and battery pack xmas promotion). The camcorder's operation was extremely easy and intuitive.

Disappointing...

thestumper, Amazon
7 October 2002
  • Summary: Wish I had read a couple of the reviews here instead of the DV sites. I too purchased this camcorder based on its convenient size and decent reviews only to be shocked at the poor low light performance. Its not an anomally, its a REAL problem.
