Canon MV850i DV Camcorder Review

 

General handling is good ; stylish design with lots of visible, well-placed buttons. Goog connectivity and 22x optical zoom is a bonus

440x digizoom useless (you can't make out an image, so it shouldn't be a selling point!)

It's a economically priced entry-level camcorder that will appeal also to the upgrade market. At the price, it's great value for money.

At the helm of the 2005 Canon ZR line is the ZR300. Although this is one of the top models of the ZR series, this model is outfitted with the same imager specs as its little siblings, the ZR100 and ZR200: a 1/6” CCD with 680K gross pixels, and 340K...

Canon ZR300 MiniDV Digital/Tape Camcorder

 

I have been using this guy for about 5 years now, and it's never really done me wrong. It has been through a heck of a lot, and it's still running. Just recently started showing signs of needing a tape-head cleaning, but a cleaning tape can be picked...

If you’re using it with the Hi-8 tapes, you’re going to want to bring a few extra batteries. Running the tapes, recording, playing back, editing; it takes a lot out of the batteries and you’ll find they run down pretty quickly! Overall I’d like to say...
