Summary: This unit was purchased to replace a Canon ZR80 that burnt out. Suprisingly the ZR80 had slightly better picture quality than this one. Where this camera excels is it's easy to use features and menus.
Summary: This camcorder was purchased brand new in June 2015, even though it was made between 2004-2008. It's amazing that it works. I am very happy with my purchase. I have used this camcorder a couple of times this month and all the features are working fine.
Summary: This is a great miniDV camcorder. It's small, lightweight, and simple. I'm currently using it to import old miniDV tapes to a digital format. I like this camcorder more than any of the other miniDV cameras I've used before.
Summary: I bought this camera from a private owner. I guess that's how these things work. Anyway, the camera viewing options broke down on me probably within it's 6 or 7th use. I don't want to spend 300 dollars buying a new camcorder but damn if they didn't send me a piece of faulty s***.
Summary: I have had this item for 4 years and generally I can say that it worked ok but there had been several tips which annoyed me. The main problem was transferring materiel from mini dv cassette to lap top lenovo G560.
Summary: I would imagine your looking at a mini Dv camcorder to use to shoot video and then edit with it. If your not planning to edit you video than go buy a mini DVD camcorder and not a mini dv camcorder, but if your like me, who likes to edit, the canon Zr is the camcorder to go with.
