Pay attention to the zoom range

By Rony from San Jose, CA on 02/12/2012


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I have this product for 8 months or so. I wish I paid more attention to the zoom range. The zoom range is f-6.4-64mm (35mm equivalent 43.5-435mm) which is a disaster when you tape your daughters dance show for example. I wish I read more before purchasing this product.

Takes good photos as well.

By Lewster from Tucson, AZ on 09/25/2011


Pros:

Easy Computer Connectivity, Good Low-light Performance, Good Battery Life, Compact Design, Good Photos, Easy Tv Connectivity, Excellent Image Quality

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Got this for a recent trip to Yellowstone. Was amazed at the detail level of the video, can see fine fur detail when zoomed in on animals. The photos come out good for 8 Meg. I added the SM-V1 5.1-Channel Surround Microphone to get the Elk bugling during the rut and it was great. I am really impressed with the sound and video from such a small compact camcorder, it carries easily on day hikes. Also performed good at dusk, not great but good, real good actually.

Great camcorder

By swandog from Anthem, AZ on 09/18/2011


Pros:

Good Software Compatibility, Good Battery Life, Easy To Use, Easy Computer Connectivity, Great Sound/audio, Accurate, Vivid Colors, Excellent Image Quality, Ergonomic/comfortable To Hold

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have used this camera for the last 6-8 months shooting mainly my son's sporting events (track and football), and this camera has reallly deliveredd. Imaqge quality is great, and the built in image stabilization is great, especially when shooting these faster moving sports. Sound quality is frankly, amazing. Tiny mic picks up full, rich sound. Simple data transfers to computer with supplied software. Everything about this little camera is easy and enjoyable.

Jack the Giant Killer!

By The Mechanic from Bakersfield,Ca. on 09/03/2011


Pros:

Accurate, Vivid Colors, Durable, Compact Design, Excellent Image Quality, Great Sound/audio, Easy To Use, Good Battery Life, Easy Tv Connectivity

Cons:

I Need A Wide Angle Version Of This Camera

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This Light Weight HD Camcorder is a pleasure to use with a very high quality picture. I am happy Canon chose to include the SDXC Option. I like the high quality flip out LCD Monitor as well as the EVF. I would buy another if Canon would build a Super Wide Angle Version of this VIXIA HF S30. I sure would like to see a field of view like the 16-35 mm on my 5D Markll , with very little distortion. Thank you Canon.

Great Value

By Fairhope Gene from Fairhope, AL on 08/07/2011


Pros:

Accurate, Vivid Colors, Excellent Image Quality, Good Battery Life, External Mic Connection, Compact Design, Ergonomic/comfortable To Hold, Good Software Compatibility

Cons:

Skimpy Manual

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

One of the great features of this camcorder is the abilty to use external microphone to get the best quality audio. A shotgun mic or lavelier mic gives great results over the built-in mic. Touch screen for follow focus is very handy as is the ablity to change the zoom speed. Very sophisticated little machine!
