4.0 out of 5 stars Good camera, with a few niggles, 4 May 2009
I agree with what most other reviewers have said. This camcorder produces video of fantastic quality, especially when played through an HDTV. The lens is very impressive, producing good results whether at 10x zoom or in extreme close up. Unlike some other people, I've had very good results in low light too. The only criticism I have of the camera itself is that it has to be held at a rather awkward angle which produces a cramped wrist after prolonged use. Turning to the package, and given its price, I would have expected Canon to have supplied at least one tape cassette and the micro SD card in the box, to allow you to use the camcorder straight away. Although it isn't all that clear from the advertising blurb, Mac users have to buy a Firewire cable as the supplied USB cable isn't compatible. The inclusion of a component video lead in the box, but not an HDMI cable, seems odd too. In summary, an excellent product, but Canon need should look at what purchasers actually need in order to use it straight out of the box.
