Pros: This camera has great features and take terrific videos, at least it did when it was working, which it did for years. I love the external Mic jack which all the canon camcorders seem to have, even the bottom of the line.
Cons: Now it takes video for 7 to 10 minutes and then shuts down. No worth repairing, because it's intermittant. Even though it has hit the skids, I am planning to buy another used one. Beware: new pro-consumer canon camcorders do not seem to have hot shoes (you can attach a mic, light or anything else that needs a cold shoe to it.)

I was hasty before so I just deleted the other post.
Pros: Once the dead camera was sent back, received another one that worked with no problem. The anti shake is good, to be able to look at something being filmed on the move without looking like an earthquake happening, is fantastic.
Cons: The camera is a bit small for large hands. Definitely know when I film, as one of my fingers is hogging the spotlight. LOL

Cons: awkward navigation, super grainy viewer. not easy to use and set playback. avoid this and get a cheap fuji, sony, kodak, point and shoot. not great for kids. small buttons, awkward and not a good starter camera.
Other Thoughts: I bought this as an inexpensive point and shoot for my 8 year old son. buttons and soft keys are not easy to read or intuitive. settings are difficult to access and again, not intuitive. unsure of how to activate lighting for low light situations. probably better off buying an inexpensive older model of a point and shoot with better display and simpler buttons.

Pros: Great picture, compact size, lightweight, 8GB on board, also takes SD cards or Sony Memory Sticks, built in USB cable. Good low light performance. Shoots 1080p60.
Cons: Can't recharge while shooting video, LCD panel has to be open while shooting video. No Record Light, only displays STBY or REC on LCD panel
Other Thoughts: I bought this as a "pocket" shooter as I find that smart phone video is still quite lousy. I've also rigged up a mount in my truck for shooting video for a documentary I'm working on. All in all for the $200 I paid, it's a great little camera and I can put up with the cons. I've done some editing of test footage in Premiere CS6 and CS5, both handle the footage quite well and the results are well within my expectations and needs.
