Summary: I can not begin an evaluation of this product at this early stage of purchase of this camcorder because I have not had time work with the unit. Once I learn about the camcorder and use the unit I will be able to evaluate the product. Thank you!
Summary: The camcorder does not display an image. When I contacted May's Best Buys I got the run around. They said Amazon was responsible for the warranty. Amazon said May's Best Buys was responsible. Long story short, I was responsible for sending the defective camcorder back. Amazon customer service required that I return the item with signature confirmation and insurance. I felt ripped off by Mays Best Buys and let down by Amazon customer service.
Summary: My canon zr65 suddenly went black (No image detected). From what I found on the web (a lot of people have the same problem), the CCD may be the cause. It looks like there is a quality issue about this part. To replace a CCD is very costly. Take your chance.
from '02 to 1wk ago thought it was great, now eats tapes....

Summary: (correction: i just noticed 12/3 i actually have a zr50mc..duhh...) guess i bought it around 3/2002 since my first tape is dated 3/18/02. (online for $580 or something like that...cant remember.) i've shot 12 90minute tapes since that time (60mins set at SP for 90min recording). like i said, i thought it was a great camera for video until recently.
