Product Description

Amazon.com

The Hi8 video format offers the highest quality outside of digital, and the Hi8 Canon ES60 offers a number of great features for its low price as well. First up is the 22x optical zoom lens, which is anchored by a digital zoom that enhances the range electronically to 700x. To help counteract shaky-hand syndrome, digital image stabilization is built-in.

Canon has also included a number of preset shooting modes. These modes will automatically adjust the settings of your camcorder for a variety of shooting situations. There is also an additional set of special effects available during both recording and playback that will help add a little flavor to your movies. These effects include black-and-white, sepia, mirror, and mosaic, among others. Included in the package are an A/V cable, power adapter, shoulder strap, and battery pack.

I have just purchased the canon es60 and it is one of the best cameras I have ever owned! It is easy to use, very light, and at a great low price. My friends and I love to make movies on it. I had searched for quite a while after I decided on the canon, and the cheapest price I found was at Best Buy, but to tell you the truth it wasn't really that cheap. Then I decided to try the net and a friend told me about amazon.com and then I found it here for almost half the price at best buy! As I was saying, the menus are for me, easy too read and the picture is excellent. This is the perfect camcorder for the beginner photoist.

I purchased my ES-60 about a month ago, so far I have had no problems with it, the quality is excellent, and the battery life is great. This is a great entry-level camera for the amature home videographer. The only reason it is not a 5, is the menus at first seem a little confusing, so here is the simple way to navigate the menu system, hit menu to bring up the menu screen, use the wheel to select what you wish to do, and then hit focus/set button to turn various features on and off.

This camcorder is very affordable and easy to use for beginners. My husband has always strayed from "technology" but can use this camera easily. I like that the camera has many options (fading in/out, titles, dates etc.)that make using the camera a little more challenging (and fun) for me. You can definately afford this camcorder! My only concern: the viewfinder seems to put the pictures in a yellowish tint and it is distracting.

I just got this camcorder and did some filming with it. The
quality of the pictures was very good. The features are excellent also. The microphone picks ups sound well. If it
keeps working the way it is, it's a winner.

I used to own this camcorder and unfortunately I chose to sell it and buy a newer Mini-DV Video Camera. Over the period of time that I owned it, I only used it a couple of times; however, with today's new technology and using Nero 8, I could convert the Hi-8 tapes, which would normally be made into a VHS tape to put in your VCR, into DVDs, HD DVDs and now they have Nero 9 which can burn Blue-Ray Discs. So, esentially the whole reason I bought a newer video camera was so I could have digital video and create DVDs. If I held onto the Canon ES60 Camcorder, I would be making DVDs, but I would have an amazing 700x ZOOM! That is one of the characteristics that blew my mind when I first zoomed in, when looking through the lens. I could see the faces of my neighbors across the street (inside their house) as I stood in my bedroom and looked out. This freaked me out and I immediately shut it off. The ES60 also, I forget which feature makes it this way, but produces videos that are extremely smooth and it lacks the shakiness that the newer, smaller, lighter, video cameras have. The bottom has a port that you can screw in a tripod to stand it on, and the ability the change beween auto and manual focus is very useful, especially if you want to highlight an image in the foreground (like a person) and have the background blurry. My dad made a video like that which was unbelievable!

It was made in 2001 and it is still valued at almost $400! That is amazing because most electronics that old are obsolete and worth nothing. This Canon is at the top of its class and it would be my first choice between a brand new video camera and a Canon ES60.
