Canon MV750i DV Camcorder Review


Good ergonomics and stylish design. DIGIC processing produces characteristically warm Canon skin tones. Inclusion of 0.6x wide lens and 22x optical zoom is a bonus. Low cost is a major plus.

Great Camera with pleny of capability. Highly recommend this camera.

Simplicity of use. I bought this camera to easily make DVD home movies. Not only i that achieved simply with a fire wire card. But connect the camera up to your VCR tape your old home movies onto the camera, it digitises them and you can produce DVD's...

The only fault I can find is that its 'night shot' is not as good as sony's. But a small compromise considering all the other features.
