Canon ZR review: Canon ZR

 

The compact Canon ZR400 camcorder performs beautifully in the great outdoors, but Canon continues to drop the ball when it comes to low-light shooting.

Superb color quality; choice of automated and manual shooting modes; low price; solid battery life; supports add-on lenses and filters.

Few manual controls; bottom-loading tape compartment; no accessory shoe; poor low-light performance; captures low-resolution stills.

Canon's affordable, compact ZR200 performs beautifully when the lights are bright, but you're probably better off with its less expensive sibling, the ZR100.

Inexpensive, easy to use, port for external microphone or headphones

Poor low light performance, no SD card slot, no accessory shoe
