Canon Elura 60


CCDType: Single CCD, Video Recording Format: DV Tape

Easy to operate. 14X optical zoom. 2.5-inch LCD. Adjustable EVF. Decent video quality. Has an SD slot for still captures. Offers manual adjustments.

Mediocre still-image capture. Lack of headlight, hot shoe, or flash makes low-light shooting problematic.

A worthy device for the price, the Canon Elura 60 is extremely easy to operate, with decent video quality. It's a little light on the features (such as flash and autofocus assist lamp) usually found in more expensive devices, however.

Canon Elura 60-65-70


Overall I think the Elura 60 is a fine camera but could beneficiate from some improvements. I like the fact that you can take still pictures on the digital card (not on the tape) while filming and not affecting the recording on the tape. Not many ...
