  • Summary: This camera will satisfy most folks that read Amazon reviews! DV-ing can be an uphill climb for newbies, but with the proper expectations, you can be happy with your purchase and your future use. I have used this camera for 4 months, and here are my observations: A few assumptions: 1. Firewire BABY!

WARNING!! NO ANALOG INPUT OF ANY KIND!

  • Summary: I love shopping at newegg, and will continue too, but this purchase was the only bad purchase I have had with them. I specifically bought a cheapo camcorder for analog to digital conversions, and I trusted Newegg's product listing.
  • Pros: The camera is an affordable way into digital video, no question about that. Its small, light, and cheap. If you are new to DV, buy it.
  • Cons: NO ANALOG VIDEO INPUTS! despite what Newegg's product listing says, this camera does not record any ANALOG video (ie. from a VCR, TV, analog camcorder, 8mm camcorder, etc..) It will only record video inputs via the firewire. The canon ZR700 records analog video. Newegg needs to take the "Analog L...

An average camera

  • Summary: Go with a $400+ camera.
  • Pros: Size, SD card, Good shots in the high light level. 25x optical zoom. Lots of recording options.
  • Cons: Poor low light performance. Night mode slows shutterspeed down to what feels like 15 fps. Very slow auto focus. When recording to SD card most of the options for video recording are removed. Filters and Effects are confusing to use on the fly.

  • Summary: This is a follow up review. I wrote the first review of this camcorder, and I was very well pleased. Since then, one of my kids got a hold of this sucker and went to town, eventually breaking the LCD portion of the machine. Canon is fixing it for free. This is an awesome company.
  • Pros: Fantastic DV image quality. Warranty and Company are AWESOME!!!!
  • Cons: none

  • Summary: I had this video camera for a while and so far it has meet my expectations considering the price. I did not go for a DVD video camera because the price is still high considering the lower image quality. Also do not expect to record quality clips or pictures using the SD card.

  • Summary: I bought thus camcorder last month and find it harder to figure out than I expected. The image quality is good when filming outside but grainy when filming inside. My biggest disappointment is how difficult it has been for me to figure out how to transfer the video footage from the mini DV tape to...

Very pleased

  • Summary: I purchased this camera recently, knowing nothing about minidv camcorders at all. I was happy to find it easy to use. The video quality is good but the still photo quality isn't so great. I don't use that feature much though so it isn't a big deal for me.
