Canon MV890 review


Canon's compact, capable MV890 MiniDV camcorder is a dream come true for videographers on a shoestring budget

Costs less than £200 ; Widescreen LCD ; Easy-to-use controls ; Built-in lens cover ; Above-average colour reproduction ; 22x optical zoom ; Plenty of manual controls for shooters who want them ; Works with add-on lenses and filters ; Microphone jack

No shoulder strap or accessory shoe ; Bottom-loading tape compartment ; Not enough image stabilisation at maximum zoom ; Poor low-light performance
