Summary: This camcorder came with a cassette tape, which I couldn't really figure out (in terms of how to get the videos off the camera and onto my computer). I wanted a simple camera that uses SD cards so I could use the cards I already have lying around from my digital camera and that I could just take out...
Summary: I rated this one already, I remember, but they keep asking for it, so here goes again. The camcorder works perfectly. The price was extremely reasonable. I especially like the fact that the seller was willing to give a 30 day guarantee.
Summary: The Canon ZR950 s a great beginner camera. It was my first camcorder and I have filmed many things on it including a full 25 minute documentary. It's very easy to manage and travel with and this comes in handy. Comes with a microphone with has really come in handy and the LCD screen is reversible.
Pros: Compact, great quality
Cons: The ZR950 has no audio inputs so one must rely on the microphone built in. Also if it shaken slightly the DV can be destroyed.
Summary: Purchased from Amazon...speedy delivery! Used it for 3 months and then noticed a pixel bun-in (one small dot was always red). Not a huge problem unless you watch recorded video on a BIG screen. The dot was the size of a pencil eraser. Canon paid for shipping both ways and repaired it perfectly..
Summary: I purchased this camera as a gift for my husband. He has been very happy with it. He has used it on a tripod to film his railroad layout and got very good results. It is a good camera for a reasonable price.
