Great beginner cam, but lacks on quality

 

I bought this camera 5 years ago at Circuit city, because it had a great sale. It worked for 4 years, under heavy usage, and stood up fairly well. The only real complaint I have about this camera is the low quality. The buttons were placed well, had...

Simplicity

 

I've always loved Canon products. In my opinion, they are the ultimate when it comes to consumer optical products. The ES-190 fits in with this description. Don't be fooled- it is a low-end camera, but this camcorder has some cool features that...

Good quality images, simple to use

No LCD Panel, mediocre sound

A Great Deal!!!

 

About a year ago I decided that I wanted a camcorder but, I was fairly short on cash. After looking at various camcorders I found the Canon ES190 and it has more than paid off. This 8mm camcorder comes with a color viewfinder which is not much...

cheap and easy to use

Short Battery life and it has no computer hook up

Simple, Versatile ES-190

 

I bought this camcorder for a specific purpose: to prepare a retrospective video for my father's 80th birthday celebration. After researching makes and models on epinions.com, I narrowed the list down to 2 or 3, with the Canon ES-190 at the top....

ease of use, lightweight, versatility

Great Camera

 

When I was shopping for a camera, I had my eyes on this nice little RCA Camera, it was twice as expensive as My Canon ES190, and had near no features! The ES190 is a wonderful little toy for an incredibly cheap price! The Digital effects are wonderful...

Our Wonderful New Toy

 

With two small children, and being 1300 miles away from most of our family, we had wanted to buy a camcorder for quite a while but never had the money. We found this one at a local outlet store and being employees of the company we got an additional...

Great Cam for Beginners

 

It has been almost half a year now that I have owned this magnificent machine. I use the ES190 for skateboarding, special events and other breath taking moments. I would have to say that the playback quality is very good for its price(better than...

Good price, color view finder, 22X optical zoom

Canon ES190 Cheap Camera/Wonderful Quality

 

The Canon ES190 video camera is amazing. I was skeptical since it claims to have a wonderful 440x digital zoom. The zoom is great, just not at 440x. When you take it to that length it gets very fuzzy and hard to focus on things but is great at...

price, quality

440x is hard to use

Don't Judge This Camcorder By It's Size

 

The Canon ES190 8mm Camcorder may be small and lightweight but it does everything a larger, heavier camcorder can. I received this as a surprise from my husband for Christmas. I received it early in the morning so I could tape the childrens'...
