    Purchased this camera before several family vacations while trying to avoid running out of storage on our phones. Battery: This camera has an awesome battery life! We haven't had to charge the battery since the initial charge 1 month ago... Note that we have only taken about 1 hour of no consecutive video clips. The camera has been turned on & off several times trying to catch candid moments which uses more battery power. I love that it shows you the total number of battery minutes left before the battery is exhausted. Camera Functions: Everything functions as it should. Image stabilization on this camera is awesome! We have not had any problems with any portion of the camera yet it has only been 1 month. Lens Cover: The lens cover seems a bit jankey. It rattles while walking when open or closed. The switch for the lens cover is in a horrible place especially for a man's hands... It is the only part of the camera that seems a bit cheap... especially when paying over $400 on a camera. I want it to open and close automatically when the power toggles. Built in memory: I purchased a 32 gb card in addition to the builtin member because I was afraid of running out of space on our trips. We didn't use but a fraction of the built-in hard drive but it is still nice to add memory to the device. Overall: We are very happy with this camera!

    Bought this as a spur of the moment purchase to film my daughters first School of Rock performance. I have always been a fan of Canon 35mm cameras prior to the digital age. I was not disappointed with my purchase. Picture and audio quality is fantastic. Easy to set up and use. I recommend buying a SD card to make transferring video easy. I Have not used outside so I cannot comment on the viewfinder, but it works great indoors and takes great video of subjects on stage with bright lights. Zoom feature excellent. No grain at all. Another nice feature is that you can take pictures too. Others have been disappointed it doesn’t have a pause button. Not a big deal as far as I’m concerned. It’s much easier to edit the videos using individual files. I used the Movavi video suite to make custom movies and burn DVDs. I highly recommend this product. Couldn’t be happier with my purchase.

    Excellent Entry Level Camcorder

    This is a lovely camcorder that is very lightweight and versatile. With the articulating viewfinder, it's easy to film in a number of different angles. It was primarily purchased to capture a newborn as she grows up. Leaving it sitting on the coffee table means that we can film her within a moments notice. There is also a very convenient feature that allows the camcorder to turn on simply by opening the viewfinder. This allows someone to begin filming within about 3 seconds of grabbing the camera, allowing us to quickly capture precious baby moments. My only regret is that recording on the highest quality recording means that you cannot write to the internal memory and an SD card at the same time. I am disappointed with this limitation as the reason I purchased this model specifically was to allow for duplicate recording in case either the internal memory or my SD card corrupts...I would have still had my footage. If recording in the second-highest quality, this limitation goes away.

    Very good cam but 1 issue could be a deal breaker

    Video quality is great! Ease of use and feature are excellent. My issue is, and this may be a limitation of the technology, that a file can only be 4GB in size (34 minutes in length) then it creates a new file. Problem is, this also creates a glitch in the audio/video if you need a continuous clip that is longer. I called Canon and they said they have no consumer models that this won't happen with. I tried to fix the glitch in post editing but it's very difficult to not notice and you have to make sure your editing program doesn't snap to frame. I would think they could come up with a fix for this. Aside from that, I love it and as long as that is not an issue for you I recommend it. It is an issue for me but I am using it for tutorial videos and have found a work around for my usage so I ended up keeping the device although I had considered returning it because of that

    This camera did very well for our vacation trip. The only issue I had was the glare off the flip out screen. I don't really see a way to avoid that but most of the time I was not totally sure of what I was filming and chased certain things that were far off, but once I locked in and zoomed slow it turned out really good. The idea of touch screen high res photo's is a really neat feature. The on board memory held all the HD high res videos over the course of 2 weeks along with random still shot photography, with room to spare. I never needed to use the additional SD memory card I installed.

    Has nice features but I'm very disapointed

    I read the specs and compared different models before purchasing this camera. I was excited when I first got it because of the nice interface and user-friendly menus and set up the camera offers. However, when we were traveling and I used if for the first time outdoors, I found that screen, that serves as the view finder, was barely usable in bright sunlight or even in normal outdoor situations. I have an older Sony that is big and clunky by comparison, but it was a dream to use outdoors compared to this new Canon. I wish I had not purchased it but since it is not a warranty issue (the camera does work) I will have to dump it on Ebay or something.

    I bought this to replace a mini-dv tape camcorder but aside from the built-in 32GB and ability to fix a fullsize ds card the rest is mediocre at best. The startup manual furnished with the camcorder is useless! I had to shoot at a fairly well lite setting so I chose the Night setting,well video was nothing but noise! There is a Low light setting too but either way the camcorder does not seem to record any usuable video after sunset,even with light.

    Don’t get me wrong, it’s a great camera! But I was disappointed that it didn’t really had night vision camera when IT said on the specifications IT had infrared light night vision. Even the worker at crystal lake checked and it said it did. I returned it the next day. It just wasn’t the camera for me. Had beautiful picture but not for me. I would recommend this to a friend who DOESNT want a night vision camera.
