    My background in movie making goes back to when I carried a large VHS camera all over Spain some 20 years ago. Since that time, I have had a long procession of Canon and Sony cams, all of high quality. I have had the VHS, 8mm, super 8mm, mini-disc and finally flash memory. Perhaps the feature rich Elura 90 was my best one with its built-in hot shoe and threaded lens barrel.

    Currently, I have had three Canon flash models the FS-10 with its 48X zoom, the HF-R10 with its 20X zoom and finally the M301. I feel that the M301 takes the most beautiful and sharpest videos of this group. The colors are outstanding.
    The main reason I bought this camera is because of its advanced mini hot shoe and the fact that a wide angle conversion lens can be attached to the camera. I considered the Sony in the same price category but none of their cameras at the time had a input jack for a external microphone.

    I consider an external mike a necessity for superb sound. Those built-in mike on camcorders result is something less than stellar in fidelity. The High D efinition and Dolby sound result in great sound and picture quality. My biggest disappointment in the M301 is that Canon did not build this camera to be backward compatible with its previous camcorders. My Canon Elura 90 has a 34mm lens and my new Canon M301 has a 37mm. So I bought a 34 to 37 Bower step-up ring so my old wide-angle lens should fit my new camcorder using the this step up ring, right ? Unfortunately, it doesn’t fit. I don’t know why Canon left her old lenses in the dust ? Guess this must have been a marketing decision wanting to sell new set of conversion lenses.

    I guess they made the grooves in the lens barrel either too big or too little so they wouldn’t fit. So I could only give it 4 stars instead of 5 because of leaving her loyal customers in the dust. They did the very same thing with their 35mm A1 camera. I have a close friend who has an A1 but he wanted to buy a new Canon digital camera but his old lenses don’t fit the new generation of cameras so he is in the same boat as me.

    I was able to attach my old wide angle lens using Duct Tape !! But it lost too much in quality so I had to take it off.

    However, I must say that it makes great videos. Here’s the link to my video that I made yesterday and uploaded to YouTube. This will give you an idea of its quality. I think I may return it for the Sony 160 camcorder which has much more power and also has a microphone jack. Here the link to my video made with the M301. Enjoy. [...]

    PS: I’m not sure why my link to my YouTube video didn’t show up in the original posting but here it is in this update. I think that many people would want to see how it actually functions in the field before buying it. If you wish to see how videos look with this camera, go to YouTube and in the Search Box, enter WHITE STREET PARK and that will bring up my walk in the park using this camera. Enjoy. [...]

    One of the best camcorders for the money, EVER, December 19, 2011

    I can’t begin to explain how much I love this camcorder. I got this thing when it was only $300 at Costco, and I couldn’t have picked a better deal.

    Pros:

    First: The thing has amazing image quality. The colors come out rich and amazing. And the fact that it has a flash and a 3.89 Megapixel image quality, just adds to it’s long list of pros. It also has a 15X optical zoom, and the Powered Image Stabilizer compensates well for the zoom.

    Second: It has a large amount of external devices that can be added to it. It has a mic port, a mini advanced shoe, a head phone port for live audio checks, a component out for HD streaming, a mini-usb out, and a mini-HDMI out. It can go as low as a class 4 SD card, and I think it can take the best HD card out there as well. It also has a 37mm lens screw on the front for a lens hood.

    Third: The manual controls are plentiful and well thought out. They have manual controls for white balance, exposure, AGC, mic levels, Recording Programs, focus, and some digital effects as well. Along with the flash for the picture camera, it also has a video light, which isn’t that bright, but in general, it works. It can record in 60i, 30p, and 24p frame rates, but NO 60p. Sorry. It also does not have any external manual controls, all the controls are built in to the software, but can be changed during live recording.

    Biggest thing in my opinion, it works great with any editing software that I have used (iMovie, Final Cut Pro, and Sony Vegas). It records in AVCHD format, or in .MTS format for better words.

    Cons:

    Very few. It does have some random shaking inside of it when it is off, but it sounds like it is a controlled knocking. If you are worried about it breaking because of this, don’t. I have used this thing so much since I got it, which was about 6-7 months ago, and it still has not had one problem. Once you turn the camera on, the knocking stops.

    Another problem I have is that the touch-screen is really reflective when you are in the sun outdoors. This can be fixed with an LCD hood, which is only a few dollars.

    The audio quality from the built-in mic is manageable, and works for amateur use, but in by no means is it fit for professional use. You can buy external mics that will work a lot better. This should be expected from a camera this cheap though. Canon 2591B002 DM-100 Directional Stereo Microphone for HF/HG Series Camcorders

    And the last complaint, the included battery only lasts for about 80-90 minutes. You can get a super cheap long-lasting battery for about 15 dollars. Just look up the BP-827 replacement battery by EastStar.EastStar Pro Li-ion High Capacity Intelligent Camcorder Battery Pack to Replace Canon BP-827

    Excellent Camcorder, August 4, 2011

    The thing I record the most is the sailing my wife and I do. I mount the camcorder on a horizon leveling camera mount made for boating. In early July I bought the Sony HDR CX160 and used it to record 2 of our sails. On both recordings the image jittered up an down quite a bit which became annoying to watch.
    I then found out why. I subscribed to Consumer Reports and their rating for the CX160′s image stabilizer is only “Fair”. Their rating for this model’s image stabilizer is “Excellent”. Canon has the same image stabilizer in this model that they have in their most expensive model, which is very nice of Canon I think. I returned the Sony and bought the Canon. One thing I did like about the Sony was it’s 29mm lens, the lens on the Canon is 39.5mm so I bought the Canon wide angle converter lens as well. I recorded our last sail with this using the wide angle lens and with the Power IS on. The color is fantastic and the image quality is excellent. I love the slightly curved horizon that the wide angle lens fish eye effect creates. Also, the image stabilizer is much, much better than the Sony image stabilizer. I am very happy with this camcorder and even though it is very hard to see the view finder in sunlight I would still say it is an excellent camcorder.
