Another solid digital video camera from Canon, the MD160 will do all the things you'd expect of an entry level unit and do them well.

35x zoom, good video quality

Slightly dull colours

Canon MD160 review


Inexpensive MiniDV camcorder offering great value for money

Long zoom length ; Good anti-shake software ; Very easy to use ; Great, unpretentious family camcorder

Doesn't like strong light ; No accessory shoe or external mic port

Affordable, easy to use, no-frills camcorder that's ideal for filming the kids on days out

Canon MD160


Easy controls. 35x optical zoom. Widescreen shooting.

Still only an SD camera. Some manual choices are slow.

If you're not fussed by HD, or recording to DVD or hard disk, then the MD160 is a perfectly serviceable, if otherwise unremarkable camcorder.

Canon MD160 review


The MD160 is a thoroughly sensible cam with a stonking zoom and proves that there's life left yet in MiniDV for thrifty bargain hunters
