Canon ZR200

 

The Canon ZR200 is a good choice for a moderately priced digital camcorder with 20X optical zoom.

Good overall color and dynamic range. Easy to use. Low price. 20X optical zoom lens.

Slow autofocus. Fuzzy quality in low light.

Expert Review

 

The Canon ZR200 is Canon's mid-road lower-end camcorder this year. This means that the ZR200 sits between the ZR300 and ZR100 this year in Canon's entry-level ZR series. The series boasts its inclusion of Canon “High Resolution 16:9 mode” seen on some...

Zoom toggle, - Low light improvement, - Navigational function, - Widescreen mode

Canon ZR200 First Impressions Review - Canon MiniDV Camcorders

 

The new Canon ZR200 offers a couple of upgrades from its sister model, the ZR100, but by in large, the camcorders are similar. The ZR200 features the same imager as last year's ZRs and boasts an additional high resolution 16:9 mode, a smaller body...

There will be no mistaking your Canon ZR200 once you've customized its start-up image and camcorder operation sounds. With the My Camera Function you can also select your preferred operating language, be it English, French, Spanish, German, Italian,...

Canon MV830i

 

A capable and affordable MiniDV camcorder that's not as good value as the step-down MV800i.

Superb colour 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 promises slightly less than an hour of typical recording time from the included battery, though you can shoot continuously, using the viewfinder only, for an impressive 135 minutes. Those are decent numbers for a camcorder in this category,...

Canon ZR 200 review

 

Remote and Webcam capabilities, the Canon ZR200 offers no real advantages over the less expensive ZR100. Physically identical to other models in Canon's ZR line, the ZR200 weighs slightly more than a pound and fits comfortably in the hand. To make...

Canon ZR 200

 

After a lot of comparing in the store, I picked this up for the great warranty (full year on parts AND labor) and slew of features when compared to it's rivals in the same price range. However, I was very disappointed by the audio quality. When filming...

A terrific camcorder

 

Small and comfortable. Very light weight. I enjoy the fact that I can carry it in my purse or keep it in the carrier I bought for it. Easy to handle and good zoom. I bought it for my granddaughters graduation and have been impressed since. Great...

Great for first camcorder. Excellent colors and good sound. Easy to work and light weight

Made for a woman's hands. Buttons are close together and difficult for a man
