According to user reviews the Canon VIXIA HF200 included software is not good; and the placement of USB output plug is very inconvenient. Its auto focus system fails to operate in dim lighting as well as the three output jacks are placed in 3 different locations. Very unreliable USB interface; very poor noise levels; and poor color saturation are other drawbacks.
