Customer Review

on 18 December 2008
As a confirmed Canon fan, I still did all the research and decided on the HV30. Reluctantly, I have to say, I am very disappointed.The picture quality is very good, and the features and connectivity are excellent, however the sound quality is completely spoilt by the recorded tape and other electronic noise. It was so bad on the first one I received, I requested a replacement, which Amazon did very promptly, but the second has the same problem but is marginally better.The build quality is comparable to other makes, but not a patch on my Canon MVX 3i.

Pros: Video and stills quality very good, connectivity excellent,DV editing easy peasy, and compact size.
Cons: Bad sound quality due to tape noise, poor build quality, awkward to use due to placement of controls.
Recommend go for the HF100 if you don't mind the editing nightmare.

I can't believe Canon produced this product.
