Canon ZR

 

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.

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 ZR400

 

Review: The flagship of Canon's 2005 ZR line, the compact ZR400 delivers on the promise of hassle-free moviemaking for home users and hobbyists. Leave it in Easy mode for point-and-shoot simplicity; switch to Program mode for control over focus,...

Superb color quality in outdoor settings; novice-friendly shooting mode; includes wide-angle lens adapter; compact, attractive design

Bottom-loading tape compartment; poor low-light performance; no microphone input, accessory shoe, or battery charger; low-quality still photos and minimovies; no backlight-exposure mode

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.

Canon ZR400 Camcorder Review - Canon MiniDV Camcorders

 

The ZR400 is Canon's top of the heap ZR model this year, and it shows. The ZR400 includes everything the ZR300 does, including an improved imager and better still performance. For Elura performance in a ZR body, check the ZR400 out.

Canon ZR400 Mini DV Camcorder

 

Included with this camcorder is a 16MB SD memory card to which you can capture snapshots and movies at a maximum resolution of 1152 by 864 pixels and 320 by 240 pixels, 15 frames per second respectively. The ZR400 is equipped with a USB jack to...

No S-Video Limited Audio Options Bottom Tape Loader

The camcorder's auto white balance is accurate and the auto exposure tends ever so slightly to underexpose. This small push down should help retain some of the details in our shots. Overall, we were pleased with the results in our lab tests and pleased...

Review: Canon ZR400 camcorder

 

The Canon ZR400 is compact and simple to operate, making it a good choice for recording family fun, but don't expect the still images to take the place of a dedicated digital camera.

Easy to use ; very good color ; true widescreen mode ; wide attachment ; wireless controller

Tape loads from the bottom ; electronic as opposed to optical image stabilization ; awkward manual focus ; mediocre still images ; no external microphone or headphone jack

It fits comfortably in your hand with controls conveniently arranged for easy operation. The 2.4-inch LCD has a backlight switch that can boost the brightness by 250 percent for better visibility on sunny days. The viewfinder has a dioptric adjustment...

Canon ZR400 MiniDV Camcorder w/14x Optical Zoom.

This is a great looking camera that's easy to use. Like the entire ZR line of cameras, the Canon ZR400 minimizes the distance between lens and viewfinder, giving it a compact, easy-to-hold, easy-to-carry form - without sacrificing functionality.

Canon MVX10i

 

Whereas a couple of years ago Canon might have described this as a mini camcorder, it now describes it as a compact multimedia DV camera. Certainly by comparison with the others in this month's labs it's not mini, however it does manage to pack a lot...

The 1.3 megapixel (860,000 effective) CCD produces a nice crisp image with truer colour than the 250i. It also is quicker to focus and adjust to changing light conditions

Product Specifications

The MVX100i is equally at home making movies, taking digital photographs or functioning as a webcam. It is compact, lightweight and easy to use all-in-one camcorder. A 1.33 Megapixel CCD provides high-resolution images. Zoom is 16x optical/320x digital for movies, 15x optical/60x digital for stills. A 2.5" color LCD offers easy image preview and menu navigation, while the Image Stabilizer and Manual Focus Ring help keep compositions pin-sharp. Multi Architecture Camera System (MACS) ensures different recordings are sent on the optimum route for storage. For example, video recordings are sent on one route to miniDV tape, still shots on another route to SD Memory card or MultiMediaCard. The result is that whether outputting images to computer, TV or printer, image quality is never compromised. Thanks to Simultaneous Photo Recording, the MVX100i lets you take still photographs during movie recording. With Auto Exposure Bracketing, the MVX100i takes three shots, altering exposure between the three. Auto Focus Frame Selection lets you manually choose one of three AF frames to give accurate focus on off-center subjects. Canon Direct Print and Bubble Jet Direct let you obtain superb photo prints quickly and easily by connecting straight to a printer - there's no PC required. Existing analog recordings can be converted to digital format, while USB connectivity allows for easy image transfer. In conjunction with Windows Messenger (available on Microsoft Windows XP), DV Messenger lets you share digital photos and Motion JPEG clips through a computer. You can even link up with another camcorder user anywhere in the world and control the zoom, focus and playback of that person's camcorder, as well as have live conversations using your camcorders as webcams. Night Mode can be activated when shooting at night. An optional Video Flash Light can be used for both movie and still photography when flash is required. Finally, a full range of optional lens accessories will further extend your possibilities.
