defective video camera, Zero stars if I could

Campbell, Amazon
26 April 2007
  • Summary: Our camera is just over two years old, well maintained, not heavily used, and is now useless. As is my mother's which is right at a year old. Same problem, which other reviewers have described: the CCD (video capture) fails.

  • Summary: Like the others, this camera just up and died on me one day. I hope to get Canon to repair it, as it was pretty decent while it worked!

Incredibly disatisfied after only 1 1/2 years

Jon Luby, Amazon
8 January 2007
  • Summary: As many others have reported, mine too has lost the ability to record. Its been used for maybe 50 hours of recording in the past 1 1/2 years and is now completely worthless. Don't buy it! It'll work great for a bit, then fail on you when you most want it to work :(

Short life

Library Lover, Amazon
6 February 2006
  • Summary: This camera quit just 2 years after put into service. It has not been used excessively. Camera shop advises it will have to returned to manufacturer and will cost about $250 to repair. Two years is not long enough life span it it is not worth spending that much to fix.

Same story: loss of video

Gretchen Roberts, Amazon
3 October 2005
  • Summary: We have also had our just over one year old ZR70 lose the ability to capture video. The screens display the text features on start up but where the video feed should appear it just stays black. It was also only very gently used with no traumatic events.
