    Comparing this to my Sony A6000 and my Samsung S7, the resolution of this Canon camcorder is subpar. However this filled a need for me because it costs a quarter of the other two products and allows me to record videos for long periods of time without the device overheating. The face tracking works well and captures a moving subject but the lens are too narrow and fails to keep the surroundings in focus creating this unwanted light bokeh effect.

    Bought this to record my daughter's gymnastics competitions. So far it works great. Only criticism is that it seems a little out of focus at times, but it could be something I'm doing. I would recommend this product for purchase.

    Can't shoot anything moving fast

    Even in sport mode, this camcorder can not shoot anything moving quickly at all. It just goes completely fuzzy and out of focus until whatever is moving slows down. Auto focus is painfully slow. It does a nice job of shooting nothing exciting, but forget about going on adventures or recording anything interesting with it.

    This camera was bought for personal and to use at my job. the camera is a nice size and the battery appears to have a long life. The zoom lens is very functional, but could be quicker to use. While zooming it takes several seconds for the object being filmed to come into focus. The switch to turn on the recording mode is located at the right rear of the camera, It would be more user friendly if it was located on the middle left side of the camera so you could turn it on while viewing through the lens.

    i paid 50 dollars more for the tracking feature on this camera. it worked pretty good. went out of focus a few times but quickly fixed itself. way better then any other point and shoot or my phone camera I tried before. the mic is actually pretty good too. the battery lasted a while for me. I filmed for maybe four hours and never had to stop to charge or plug in the battery.
