4 out of 5 eggsInitial hiccups.. but love it

Pros: Great videos.. amazing clarity. Very customizable settings. Focus ring.. great to shoot those professional looking videos. Excellent support from Canon technical support for a problem I faced initially (see below)(also.. they haven't heard of NEWEGG.. found it very amusing). Especially loved the compact and it fits my hand very nicely. The remote is easy to operate. Low light videos are good.

Cons: Playback of my test recording (on sony premium DVC) gave me distorted squares on screen. Technical support told me to clean the head with dry cleaning cassette and to change my cassette. Bought new Panasonic cassette, gave a head clean for 10 sec and the play back was real great. There is a very faint motor noise that comes up on the cassette, but not really noticeable....

Other Thoughts: Dont get fooled by the light on the front. This is not a video light but is a flash for the inbuild camera (great 2 MP pics). YOu need to buy your own accessory video light if you need one.

5 out of 5 eggsLove it!

Pros: Basic operations are quick and easy. Takes beautiful video. Built in mic is very sensitive. 2MP still camera capability. Compact size.

Cons: The included battery only lasts about 45 minutes when taking video.

Other Thoughts: Simple to use. Even the technically challenged will find it easy to use. I was looking to replace both an old 8MM camcorder and a 1.3MP digital camera. This did both in one package. Buy a spare battery as quick as you can. Boy is it tiny! A paperback novel is larger than this camcorder.
