Summary: I realize Tim Allens review is nearly a year old but the reviewer obviously misunderstood the instructions for shipping the camera back. Its a camcorder so of course you wouldn't put it in a large box for it to "fly around inside" of.
Great little camera - needs tweaking for good indoor results
29 March 2007
Summary: I picked this up new at a great close-out price as the 2004 models were moving in and am very impressed. Outdoor shots are great - just point and shoot. Indoor requires a little work to get decent results and the user manual isn't much help.
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.
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...
Summary: OK, its not a $1000 camera, but for the money I paid I am quite happy. I love the size, features and well built quality of this camera. I know others have issues with noise and low light quality but not a big problem with me.
Summary: This is a great camera for the price. Pros: The zoom is incredible and the outdoor picture quality, awesome. Small, light weight makes this a prefect camera for vacations or home video needs. Can't beat it for the price. No motor noise when played thru a TV.
My first camcorder - I am very happy (4 1/2 stars)

Summary: My wife and I recently purchased this camcorder because we recently had a baby. I am impressed with the video and audio quality of the this camera. It has plenty of options and if you are not afraid to read the owner's manual these options are easy to use.
Summary: This is a great little camera (fits in your hand nicely) for the beginer as well as the more advanced video buff that does not want to carry a heavier equipment. Very easy to use, it has a number of effects (usual fade-in and out, sepia, black and white and various fun digital effects) that will...
Summary: Before buying this I did lot of research finally came down to canon zr70mc and sony dcr-hc30. (don't fall for other canon models like zr80-85. they lack features ) Both models are appealing for price.
