"The math is all off in the tally of user reviews."4.5 starson by shaunls
Pros: Not really familiar, but I love the canon vixia line. Beatiful video quality
Cons: some of the controls a bit awkwardly placed.
Summary: Just eyeballing it, I noticed with 24 reviewers with 13 of which giving a 5, the math must be off for the overall rating to be 3.5 stars. In fact, the correct star rating is 4.125 based on the 24 user reviews. CNET, you know your tech, you just need to check your math!
