The MVX4i is a great little camcorder, offering strong digital photography and comprehensive manual control. But it's also extremely expensive. If the price comes down over the coming months, this will be hard to resist.

Comfortable and Compact, 4 MegaPixels for still images, Good level of manual control, Excellent video performance

Bottom loading tape mechanism bad news for tripods, No accessory shoe, Jumpy autofocus
