Great camcorder for everyday use.

  • Excerpt: We received this camcorder as a baby shower gift and we love it. It is easy to use for a beginner and takes good video. The only issue we had was when we didn't have a digital camera we tried to take still pictures and the quality is poor. This camcorder has good battery life and is easy for everyday use.

  • Excerpt: This Video Camcorder just quit working one day when we needed to videotape a very special activity.  It was still under warranty so we sent it in to be repaired & didn't get it back until several month later so missed out on several other important actities we wanted to videotape.  When we finally got it back it worked for only a couple of months then the same problem occurred.  The warranty had then expired so we never got it fixed again.

I would not recommend this camera because of its unreliability.

  • Summary: Great litle camera, but not reliable, Our first purchase broke down and was repaired without charge from the factory. It broke down again, a completely different problem, this time not under warranty. So we bought a used camera on ebay which works fine so far. Out first camera had not seen a lot of use. I would not recommend this camera because of its unreliability.

Canon fixed problems they had with this version from the earlier cameras.

  • Summary: Unlike the ZR60, the ZR70 is far more versatile with more storage capability and ease of use. Auto-focus, battery life,and night vision recording in low light are the features I appreciate the most. I upgraded from the ZR60 due to the video wentout on it, and it was more economical to upgrade than to repair. These camera's are plentiful and inexpensive. I like the versatility of using either a tape or storage card. Ample plugins as well.

  • Summary: The ZR series of Canon camcorders are some of the most reliable in the used market. I purchase over 50 per year for school programs and they hold up extremely well

Not Satisfied with the product!

  • Summary: I was very excited to receive the Cannon ZR70MC however, the camera no longer works. The only thing I see on the camera is a black screen. I feel I just lost all my money and I feel very bad about buying this camera. I NEED HELP. Like another camera.

If you insist on buying one, don't expect it to last.

  • Summary: Stay away from the ZR series camcorders. I had a ZR65mc that suddenly stopped ejecting. This one did the same. I see countless reports from others affirming the bad design. Also, the audio defaults to 12-bit 32K so you have to go into the menue every time to change it to something listenable (16-bit 48K). This particular one clearly still samples at 12-bit 32K even in the 16-bit 48K mode, though my ZR65 did not have that issue. AVOID!

Great for consumer and professional applications

  • Summary: I've had this camcorder for about 2 years now and have used it for everything from backyard footage to filming corporate events. My kit included the wide angle lens attachment, a standard life battery, software CD and an 8 MB SD card. It performs great. It has great sound through the regular microphone. I even recorded a fireworks display and the fireworks did not overdrive the sound. You could still hear nearby voices even while the fireworks were going off.

Repair Service

  • Summary: I presume people had problems with this product (ZR70MC).I guess most of them are CCD related.I owned ZR70MC since 2004 and I noticied CCD problem recently (Camcorder LCD went blank even when lens cap is removed) and one year warranty on product had already expired.Canon customer service was efficient and they repaired it free of cost (they even provided shipping label).When I received camcorder I noticied that record button is not working.
