Great still pics, stylish small semi-metal body, one touch dvd dubbing function with WinXP, Made in japan built quality
Average indoor video quality, no accessory shoes or mic port, should do mpg or webcam
Got it for 2 weeks now, love it! Small/just the right size, it actually fit perfectly into most of my coats pocket. Canon hide their battery in the LCD compartment(couldnt find it for a while) which make the camcorder the same small size with or without the battery. ... Read full review
Got it for 2 weeks now, love it! Small/just the right size, it actually fit perfectly into most of my coats pocket. Canon hide their battery in the LCD compartment(couldnt find it for a while) which make the camcorder the same small size with or without the battery. Very well built device with solid half metal/half plastic body and Made in Japan manufacturing quality(cross fingers).
Great still picture capability, with or without the built in flash, you wont need to bring a separate digital camera with this 2 mega-pixels cameracorder(on most occassion) Great sound quality with excellent wind noise reduction capability. Video quality in daylight is excellent, abit underexpose at times though. Average indoor quality though but the built in vdo light helps alot. Nightmode helps alot with illumination, pitch dark rooms seem like midmorning lol but the picture is rather grainy and you need to have stone steady hands.
You can dub your dvd easily with a dvd burner equipped Windows XP computer with a touch of a button. When you take pictures and store them on the dvd, you can fish it out with the pc like the cam was an external harddrive!(wonder if it stores files...) Come with easy to use roxio dvd editing program. Overall its a great cam I got it for only $649 at Crutchfield with free shipping and no tax! J&R had it for the same price, just print the ad and bring it to Best buy they will match it.
Wish it have an accessory shoe and ext mic input, I guess Canon meant it to be an all inclusive package lol Not much accessories although this is a very new product and canon's first real attempt at dvd camcorders. Controls are abit tricky and need some getting use to. btw this baby heats up quite abit after a while of usage. Compare to my friend's Sony DVD92 and DVD201 that i had played with, this camera kick *ss.
Overall for general consumer use this camera rocks! but not quite up to the pro-sumer status yet, then again it is only $649!(you get more than what you pay for trust me!) and the dvd camcorder technology is still new.
