Canon ZR600 review

 

main content Much like its slightly more expensive sibling, the ZR700 , Canon's ZR600 performed well in our tests under optimum lighting, while low-light performance yielded significant noise--not uncommon for entry-level Canon camcorders. It boasts a...

Wide-screen LCD; easy-to-use controls; built-in lens cover; above-average color reproduction; 25X optical zoom; plenty of manual controls; accepts add-on lenses and filters; low price.

No accessory shoe or microphone input; bottom-loading tape compartment; grainy, low-resolution still photos; not enough stabilization at maximum zoom; poor low-light performance.

Stick with well-lit environments and you're sure to like the Canon ZR600, a low-priced, feature-rich camcorder.

WARNING!! NO ANALOG INPUT OF ANY KIND!

 

I love shopping at newegg, and will continue too, but this purchase was the only bad purchase I have had with them. I specifically bought a cheapo camcorder for analog to digital conversions, and I trusted Newegg's product listing. The advertised...

The camera is an affordable way into digital video, no question about that. Its small, light, and cheap. If you are new to DV, buy it

NO ANALOG VIDEO INPUTS ; despite what Newegg's product listing says, this camera does not record any ANALOG video (ie. from a VCR, TV, analog camcorder, 8mm camcorder, etc..) It will only record video inputs via the firewire. The canon ZR700 records...

Perfect entry-level videocamera

 

I got this for my b-day, mainly to capture our upcoming child in all her tiny glory. I have played with the camera extensively to be able to understand all it can do.

Small size, SD slot, widescreen, Firewire port

SD picture quality, buttons to push to activate functions during recording

Junk

 

This camcorder was advertised as having the ability to dub audio in after recording, but it is not able to. I found out the hard way - I bought the piece of garbage. Canon refuses to own up to the mistake and I am out $6.36 shipping plus 10% restocking...

It came in a box that I was able to return it in as well

This camera. Canon customer service

Good entry-level choice

 

We also bought the ZR-600 for the arrival of our first child, and have not been disappointed. First, the cons. Like all entry-level video cameras, it works best with a great deal of light, and much less well without it. While it has a camera ...

Good price, good sound, good videos with enough light, easy to use

Needs firewire or USB accessory for computer use, not good as a camera
