Canon MVX25i and MVX20i DV Camcorder Reviews


Another top-loader! Great features without being over-burdened with stuff that people will never use. Image quality is excellent and better-than-expected performance in low light situations. Great handling, too. 14x Optical Zoom is welcome.

Lack of manual control over audio input or exposure. LCD screen could be bigger, and resolution of Viewfinder could be better.

Excellent image quality, acceptably low tape transport noise and a whole host of good features make this a great all-rounder for upgraders and new camcorder users alike. Top marks.
