Nice Beginner camcorder.


It's small and light. Takes good video. Getting it out of Camera or using wifi has proven tough.

Very Happy


Very happy with the price and quality of the camera. Love the built-in wireless feature and purchased a Canon remote platform for panning too. Control it with my iPad and the Canon app.
