This is our 1st camcorder, while we are equally eager slr buyers so predicted a good deal from it. The mv600i has surely lived up to anticipations. It is an exceptional camcorder and superior worth for funds. Photograph quality is incredibly excellent, with correct colors and clear, sharp images. We have observed the 18x optical zoom extremely useful. Numerous other camcorders have only a 10x zoom. The zoom button is smooth to use and uncomplicated to handle for the desired pace of zoom. Electronic impression stabilization certainly aids at complete optical zoom. The viewfinder is clear while i assume a little around uncovered.

Lots of features for low price. The cannon mv 600i boasts a heap of features that you would normally only find on more expensive camcorders. Its mini dv format captures and delivers sharp quality pictures and sound, the weight is perfect and its really easy to use. Its dv in and out make transfering and editing your videos a breeze. The ability to use it as an analouge to digital converter is also a bonus too. My only critisim is that the battery could last a little longer and the lens could be a little wider. Other than that a fully featured dv camcorder at a very reasonable price.

Canon mv selection of camcorders. Fantastic camera loaded with goodies. Significant grumble is very low mild circumstances. The mv600i has a very low mild selection but is virtually ineffective. That apart its a very good digicam, quick to use and a very good value for the function record.

This is the type of gizmo i like – nice and easy. I am not fascinated in reading through manuals for hours on finish or hoping to try to remember which buttons to press. Depart the ‘corder on automobile exposure, commence recording and absent you go. The only other factor you have to participate in about with is the concentration. This is an superb ‘corder for complete newbies like me who-one) never utilised one particular in advance of. 2) aren’t too worried if the desired effect is not of a hollywood standard(thats why you acquire the enhancing software). three) just working with for vacations etcthe only gripe is deficiency of a firewire card and cable which are a need to if you want to obtain onto a computer so element that into the over-all price. The ‘corder will come with a dv out facility so downloading on to the laptop won’t consider for at any time. I am pretty happy with the end result.

Particularly one calendar year right after getting this digital camera i lost all pictures in viewfinder or display screen when taking films but could get an image when reviewing now recorded product. Following studying forums i contacted canon who changed a defective ccd for the reason that it was a recognised problem foc i have had no problems since.

Canon MV600i Digital Camcorder [Mini-DV 18xOptical DV-in/out] : I basically agree with what other reviewers are saying. This is my first video camera and we are very happy with it. But i have noticed the poor quality results you get in lower light/indoor situations. Now i make sure i get as much extra light as possible when shooting indoors by turning on the lights, and getting as much extra light in as possible through the windows. I also noticed that the image stabelizer didn’t seem to be doing as good a job as i thought it would. In fact at first i thought it wasn’t turned on. I would be interested to see how it compares to other brands. I think i will end up buying a wide angle lens attachment as i think it would certainly help when shooting indoors as it can be difficult to get everything in you want at the same time. The outdoor quality/in good light situations is exceptional and i guess is why the camera is rated so well.

Exactly one year after purchasing this camera i lost all images in viewfinder or screen when taking movies yet could get an image when reviewing already recorded material. After reading forums i contacted canon who replaced a faulty ccd because it was a known issue foc i have had no problems since.

Video form this camcorder suffers from poor resolution. I had bought this camcorder based on the above reviews. I wouldn’t have bought it if i had known how poor the video quality would be. Its not worth recording on a cd to show to my family. They would probably laugh at me for wasting my money on this camcorder. I would probably sell it or give it away to a charity shop.

I can only think of 1 word to describe this technological masterpiece: wow. I have had little experience with camcorders and when i purchased the canon mv600i from amazon i expected a pretty basic camcorder (due to the price) i couldnt have been more wrong. The picture is really sharp in and outside. The are hundreds of other cool features that i definitely a bonus. I highly recommend magix movie edit pro if you want to edit your footage its quick, cheap easy 2 use and u can still make movies like pros.

Excellent entry level camcorder. The mv600i is a great little camcorder and you will not get the same features in another model at anything like this price. On the plus side, the features which make it outstanding are, av-dv passthrough which means you can copy your old 8mm or vhs archives to dv and then use a non linear editor to edit or improve them. It has a good feature count for in camera effects. It is small, well built (though very light) and ergonomic. The dv quality footage is excellent, far in front of 8mm analogue. None really, although if want to shoot a lot in poor light you will need a videolight. The battery life is normal for a product of this type and longer lasting battery packs are available from the likes of uniross for around £20. Some people have said that the motor noise intrudes on the recording but i have not experienced this.

I looked around for ages to make sure i made the right choice when buying a camcorder. I have not been disappointed with its performance. Its 18x zoom is wicked and allows you to get really close to otherwise far away objects. I know the digital zoom ain’t much use but all camcorders seem to invest in this pointless feature. Shooting in low light slows the shutter speed and hence moving targets blur when shooting. However this can be avoided with a light mounted on the accessory shoe. I recommend buying extra batteries due to the average battery life. The quality of picture is fantastic, don’t be put off it is slightly grainy on the flip screen cos on the pc the quality is much better. The dv in is a great feature only usually found on more expensive camcorders it allows you to put footage back onto the mini dv tapes which are tiny and easy to carry you can then plug the camera into the tv and watch your edited films.
