Canon ES180 Camcorder Review - Canon Hi8/8mm Camcorders


The ES180 has a MSRP of $499 and is an inexpensive camcorder with some good features. The ES180 has an optical zoom of 16x but no digital zoom.

Great for beginners


The ES 180 is a sturdy high quality camera. I haven't had any problems with lighting color or the playback. The image remains very stable under most condition and the camcorder is quick to focus in on subjects when you turn the camera towards them....

Filming Memories


The Canon ES180, 8mm Video Recorder was an excellent investment for our family. Any type of occasion is recorded and we are able to replay the tape any time we'd like. It is priced right ($299.00) and compact for easy storage. It took awhile for me...

Priced Right, Compact

Consumer review by: PuNCbOrDR (



This camera is great for around $300 dollars ( depending on where you get it). It has a color view finder and "DIGITAL EFFECTS" like filming in negative, black and white, etc. It is small and compact and will fit an add on wide angle lense...

cheap, easy to use with every thing you need to start out.

short battery(get another)
