Canon ZR200

 

The Canon ZR200 is a good choice for a moderately priced digital camcorder with 20X optical zoom.

Good overall color and dynamic range. Easy to use. Low price. 20X optical zoom lens.

Slow autofocus. Fuzzy quality in low light.

Canon MV830i

 

A capable and affordable MiniDV camcorder that's not as good value as the step-down MV800i.

Canon promises slightly less than an hour of typical recording time from the included battery, though you can shoot continuously, using the viewfinder only, for an impressive 135 minutes. Those are decent numbers for a camcorder in this category,...

Canon ZR200 First Impressions Review - Canon MiniDV Camcorders

 

The new Canon ZR200 offers a couple of upgrades from its sister model, the ZR100, but by in large, the camcorders are similar. The ZR200 features the same imager as last year's ZRs and boasts an additional high resolution 16:9 mode, a smaller body...
