Summary: I purchased this item from Lucarama. When I received it, plugged it in and opened it, the tape bay made a clicking noise and would not fully eject. It then withdrew the tape bay and stopped. It does this every time.
Summary: I had several Mini-DV cassettes to convert to DVD and this camera is the least expensive way to do so. plus, it provides an additional video camera when needed. I really enjoyed using this camera
Summary: I bought this as a working unit. The seller cancelled the auction when he found it no longer worked, but worked fine when put away about a year before. My research indicated Canon camcorders were prone to the lcd failing due to age.
Summary: I've owned this camcorder for several years with zero problems. Excellent for amateurs; easy to use with few drawbacks. Compact, light and user friendly for the most part. Canon always delivers for me.
