Canon Elura 100


This very small and low-cost camcorder offers a true wide-screen display, but lacks manual focus.

Canon Elura 100 miniDV


Photograph: Chris Manners

Small and compact ; captures widescreen video

Case seems a little flimsy ; low-light performance could be better

Small both in size and in price: In fact, at 2.2 by 3.0 by 4.3 inches, it's one of the smallest camcorders available.

Canon Elura 100 review:


Summary More compact than its entry-level ZR models, the Canon Elura 100 is the company's only offering this year in its midrange Elura line. In this case, the step up to Elura means a larger, higher-resolution CCD sensor, which can serve up larger...

Compact size; fast, 20X zoom lens; solid color in video footage.

Average low-light performance; no accessory shoe.

With a big zoom, a small size, and a decent price, the Canon Elura 100 is a great choice if you plan on steering clear of low-light situations.

Canon Elura 100 Camcorder Review


The rain forest, the polar ice caps, and the MiniDV - three quickly diminishing resources we would like to save. In some of the clearest evidence that MiniDV is indeed going the way of the dinosaur, Canon has replaced the entire Elura line (three...

Canon Elura 100 MiniDV camcorder


The Canon Elura 100 is a good choice for budget shooters; although the image quality isn't great, it's a compact, easy-to-use camera that won't confuse novice filmmakers.

Low cost; compact; wide-screen shooting mode and screen; clear, bright LCD; excellent battery life

Comparatively mediocre video and still image quality; background motor noise

The Elura 100 fits comfortably in the hand, and the controls are in the right spots for easy shooting. The zoom control for its 20X optical zoom lens sits under the index finger (the digital zoom goes up to 800X, but the image quality is so bad at that...

Perfect canera for travelers.


Great picture and sound, small and easy to use.

Hard to zoom while filming because of size

Great digital video for the price


Small, light, lots of bells and whistles

Joystick not the greatest

Consumer review by: An angry custormer (

Never buy this model and from NewEgg


BE CAREFUL with this company If you ask for exchange, and ship thing back, they will just told you the item you got doesn't match with their system record, and just ship thing back to you. Be careful when you buy from Newegg and check your item serial...

None, sorry for my angry. This is first time I wrote such a bad review about any online store

1. The motor of the MiniDV tape system is really noisy! The tape I used is TDK MiniDV tape I just bought from a local Costco store. The microphone can pick up the high-pitch noise easily. When I played it back, it is like you are on a air field with a...
