Canon Vixia HF200 review: Canon Vixia HF200

 

Canon Vixia HF200

Broad manual feature set unusual in a camcorder its size; excellent video quality; attractive, functional design.

Relatively expensive.

While it's more expensive than its sub-$600 competitors, the Canon Vixia HF20 and Vixia HF200 deliver a more extensive feature set for the extra money. The HF200, which lacks internal memory, is probably a better buy than the HF20, though the HF20's...

Canon Legria HF200 HD camcorder

 

Canon's Legria HF200 is a flash memory-based high-definition camcorder

8GB SD card included in sales package, reasonable price, external microphone jack

Low-light performance isn't impressive, didn't deliver the leap in video quality we were hoping for

The Canon Legria HF200 is a solid HD camcorder that boasts some useful, no-nonsense features. While there are better camcorders on the market, it does a great job for the asking price.

It records AVCHD video to SD/SDHC memory cards, which is swiftly becoming the dominant video format in the consumer market.

Canon Legria HF200 review

 

The Legria HF200 is the cheapest model in Canon's revamped HD camcorder range, but at just under £600 it's still the most expensive model here.

Canon Legria HF200 Camcorder

 

Indeed considering the asking price the quality of features and filming is top notch. The HD filming is certainly the best available in the price range. The good news is that the Canon Legria films AVCHD video to SD/SDHC memory cards – all important as...

In our opinion this is an excellent offering from Canon, and fills the problem of high end performance in mid range camcorders nicely. It would be nicer to have better recording in poor light, and for it to come with a larger SD memory card than it...

Canon Legria HF200 review

 

The Canon Legria HF200 is a midrange high-definition camcorder aimed at videographers on a budget.

Good image quality and a decent set of features at reasonable price, removable flash memory a bonus, traditional interface is intuitive

Not the best HD video camera we've seen, lacks built-in memory found in rivals, stills mode is only 3 megapixels

The Canon Legria HF200 is a solid HD camcorder that boasts some useful, no-nonsense features. While there are better camcorders on the market, it does a great job for the asking price.

Nice HD

 

Takes good vids and pics with a small form factor.

Mine was stolen, but I re-purchased the same cam because I liked it so much!

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Outstanding for the price, and in general.

 

The size of this camera is surprisingly not a hindrance for me, but of great value. I use two of these in a rig I developed and shoot Stereoscopic 3D. The 3D, while not something the average consumer would be looking for, is actually great quality....

Amazing little camera. The picture quality is outstanding, and the solid state design, with no rolling transfer means I get my shots from take to edit with no loss of quality. I film in the full HD 24 Mbps, and I can't believe the results. The problems...

It doesn't do well in low light, IF you don't have the settings properly adjusted. If the settings on the camera is well adjusted, and you know how to light your scene, then it does quite well. The two things you have to take care with are the color,...
