The good: Small; easy to use; solid battery life; can be used as a Webcam.
The bad: Video a bit soft; LCD a bit dim outside; limited software bundle.
The bottom line: A good budget home-movie camcorder but think twice before forgoing the night light in the Elura 65.
So far, So good...
Pros: Overall, I like the form factor as well as ease of use. For the price ($427 at Circuit City) I was comparing it to the Sony HC32 that was $50 more, I was already spending more than I had planned and one of the deciding factors was the full one year labor
Cons: There definately is a bit of motor noise when playing the tape and while the size is nice, the sony is a little more compact.

not much bang for the buck
Pros: compact, for occasions where you probably want ever watch the movie anyway, this camcorder is pretty good.
Cons: takes very poor digital pictures. tripod is nearly required for operation. overall video quality low compared to my 7 year old high 8 sony cam. software is freeware spindle rack quality
Small and Fun to use
Pros: Small and easy to use. I am just upgrading to my first digital. Can't go wrong with this one.
Cons: Buy an extra battery or a longer life one if you plan on shooting anything very long.
Pros: Turns out, digital camcorders aren't too bad but they aren't very good either. The sound quality is not very good and the video seems a little...hazy. Not terribly, but it's not as clear as my Hi-8 Sony camcorder. Overall, I would say this product is "oka
Cons: Poor sound, overall, and not the best video quality I've seen, either. I don't think the camera even came with the software needed to upload the video files to the computer, either.
Small, easy to use at good price
Pros: Fits in hand well, fingers find buttons easily. Buttons not too small. Zoom operation even though slow, is very smooth.
Cons: I would have purchased Elura 65 had I known about the wide mode option. Some of the doors for the hidden compartments feel cheaply made.
Pretty neat little camcorder
Pros: Well, I just purchased this well made little camcorder today, and so far I am really enjoying it. I recorded my daughter playing the piano and the picture and sound were quite nice! I know there were complaints with the Elura 50 about videos in low light
Cons: A bit of motor noise heard on playback, but not too severe. Screen is somewhat small, but I can see well enough with it.
