Great Camera great price

 

Canon is my household's choice for cameras. The quality of their products as well as their customer service is top notch! I emailed customer support regarding Mac Software and they emailed me back a few hours later with instructions on how to import...

Ease of use. Quality. Options. The touch screen took me all but 2 minutes to figure out. Not like an Iphone but it works just fine. Use the $$ you save and get a high quality SDHC card. The manual recommends class 4, 6, or 10 from Panasonic, Toshiba...

No Mac software included...but you can import into iMovie

Meets the Basic Expectations

 

Canon has always done well with making intermediate products for the average person and the HF M300 meets that expectation. I would however advise anyone purchasing a high definition recording device to purchase another type of editing software EX:...

Awesome Camera

 

The included software isn't bad, but to get the most quality you might want to try better software since the software has a lot to do with the quality of DVD video you get. Keep in mind that this shoots at 1080p, and DVD is only capable of burning...

First of all, this camera takes really sharp and highly detailed video. The color is very nice, and the variety of customization in the menu is great. Some may feel the menu systtem is complicated, but once you get the hang of it, it's not ; For this...

Not much. Of course you can always want better low light video, but to get that you have to go to a higher priced camera. That being said, it does a good job anyway ; It shoots about one hour of video per charge, but its really not much worse than...

Canon Vixia HF M300

 

Bought this camcorder simply for the task of taking videos of my children. I've taken it to talent shows, vacations, soccer games... I've used it indoors, outdoors and in many different lighting conditions and I have always been happy with the results.

The images are sharp, the AF is fast and the options are great. You can get good video from auto-mode or great video using a few simple manual adjustments

My only negative is I wish it had a viewfinder. The LCD screen is great but can be hard to see in bright sunlight (like any other LCD) so a viewfinder is always a good option to have
