Canon MVX3i test and review from Computer Video Magazine

 

Canon's top megapixel single-CCD camcorder is versatile, lightweight and capable, but is it money well spent?

Canon MVX3i DV Camcorder Review

 

Excellent, well resolved images, DV and AV in/out, SD flash memory card, USB streaming, variable aperture and frame rate, comprehensive controls, full AV/DV connectivity, 16:9 anamorphic, networking

Lack of proper 16:9 widescreen, small viewfinder

An excellent mid-priced single-CCD camcorder which handles well, produces great images and is a joy to use. Well done Canon.

Canon Optura Xi Camcorder Review - Canon MiniDV Camcorders

 

Canon ups-its-anti with the Optura Xi, a revised and refined take on the Optura 10. Sitting firmly on the high-end of the Optura line, the Xi is a 2-megapixel CCD camcorder with digital camera capabilities. The Optura Xi captures footage or stills to...

Camcorder Review: Canon Optura Xi Mini DV

 

There are a lot of fine cameras out there, but only a few knock our socks off every year. The Canon Optura Xi definitely left us with ten cold little piggies. With full manual exposure controls (with zebra stripes for monitoring the exposure) and...

Canon Optura Xi

 

The Canon Optura Xi is a MiniDV digital Camcorder with a 11x Optical Zoom.

A first-class ticket to image excellence awaits you with the Canon Optura Xi camcorder. Beneath its silky exterior lies a true visionary at work, producing video and photos that are nothing short of breathtaking. Refined, smart, and dynamic, the Optura...

My First DV (or camcorder of any type)

 

After many decades as a nature/UW photographer I decided to try DV after seeing the results I got with a housed digital still camera's video - at just 15 fps.

Optical stabilization, fast zoom, fine DV images with good sharpness and color balance

Poorly designed, easily turned on power switch. Pathetic still images

Great dual-purpose camera

 

The OpturaXi is a great little camera. We had thought about purchasing a model that uses discs instead of tape so we could easily view them with our DVD player, but settled on this model and simply load the tapes to PC for DVD burning.

Ease of use, good photos, great video, nice lens and accessories, Canon optics

Switching between memory card and tape (awkward), eject interferes with quick-release
