Bought several years ago. Had it repaired once after 1 year due to bad video quality. Used about 4 hours since then until it showed "condensation has been detected" message making it unusable. Left it for over a year in warm dry room- still same message and unusable. Apart from message camera as new but unable to use it. Expensive rubbish. Will not buy Canon again. Seems many others have same problem.

Easy to use

An ultracompact camcorder for those who don't want to compromise much on performance and features.

Very small and lightweight; excellent bright-light performance; uncluttered, context-sensitive menus

Below-average low-light video quality; lacks accessory shoe

This well-constructed and -designed camcorder fits into a coat pocket, but it delivers less than stellar low-light video.

Product Specifications

The beautifully designed MV 6iMC digital camcorder is super-small and lightweight. Wrapped in a sleek silver case, it boasts an 800,000 pixel CCD, and a compact 10x optical / 400x digital Canon zoom lens. Whoever, wherever, whatever you are filming - the MV 6iMC camcorder has an 800,000 pixel CCD so you don't miss any of the action. SD Memory card and MultiMedia Card compatible, you can record Motion JPEGs and XGA stills with both. CP-10 compatibility and Bubble Jet Direct let you obtain photo prints quickly and easily by connecting straight to a printer - no PC required. A compact 10x optical/400x digital Canon zoom lens, with a built-in electronic Image Stabilizer means the MV 6iMC camcorder secures razor sharp, shake-free images. It also has a 2.0" color LCD screen for clear image previews and menu navigation. Multi Architecture Camera System (MACS) makes sure every recording you make is treated in the appropriate way. For example, video recordings are sent on one route to miniDV tape and still shots on another route to SD Memory card or MultiMedia Card. This ensures optimum output to TV, computer or printer. Super Night Mode is a new function designed for recording in completely dark conditions. Super Night Mode ensures accurate exposure and shadow detail, whatever you are filming, day or night.
