"A Great Camcorder, but you have to read the manual."
20 March 2004
Pros: Typical Canon product. Takes great movies, but you need to read the manual to get the benefit of its features. I have owned it for over a year and made many videos to include weddings. I am very pleased with the results. I also use a Sony camcorder an
Cons: Doesn't have a night shot type feature other wise, it is a solid performer.
Summary: I have purchased several Canon products in the past but never owned a video camera before. I did some research and with Canon quality in mind I purchased this camera just before a trip to Maine. I was rewarded with great pictures as well as video! Since I had no experience with video of any kind I was so pleasantly surprised at how easy it is to learn. I am in my mid 50's and my children are shocked that Mom could learn to take great video (It's the camera)!
