Summary: I got this camera when it first came out it lasted for about 4 or 5 years worth. We took it on holidays all the time it was a good lightweight camera easy to fit into bags and carry around. The battery life is fairly good we got a few spare batteries. You can use the little screen at the side to watch what you have recorded or to film this (note this will use a little extra battery power).
Who's up for a reliable, easy to use but grainy filming session?

Excerpt: "...a little bit bulky, the Canon MV750i is a handheld video camcorder that was a big hit when it was new. It's flexible and durable, and most importantly for me, easy to use! When I say a little bit dated and bulky, I'm talking a couple of years and a couple of centimetres. If you take the current average specs of a handheld camcorder, you're going to be looking at something that can fit comfortably in the palm of your hand without it feeling heavy. ...
Pros: Ease of use, durability, comfortable
Cons: Grainy at times, old compared to some of the newer camcorders
Summary: I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this Mini DV camera. It's an absolute delight to use, from the moment you take it out of the box. Its controls are intuitive and easy to understand, it's comfortable (and not too heavy) to hold, and the quality of what it produces is superb. It's easy to connect it to a computer using the cables and software that are provided.
Excerpt: "The features of this camcorder is available on various websites and so I won't go into the hassle of droning on about it's features - as it's all technically too boring and complicated - if you're interested you can always look it up and you'll know what you're doing anyway. Rather, i will talk about what it's like to use this camcorder. If you're a budding photographer, forget this - as the print out will not be good - the pictures taken will only ...
Pros: A good first camcorder, easy to use, wide range of features
Excerpt: "I bought the Canon MV750i camcorder as a replacement for a broken 4 year old Panasonic miniDV and was very disappointed, so much so that I returned it and got a refund. Outside footage is great, especially the colour reproduction, when compared to my old camcorder. But indoors in lower light conditions (e.g. a living room, during daytime with the lights on) this camcorder really struggles. Video is very grainy, colours are washed out, autofocus struggles ...
Pros: Great outside video footage .
Cons: Terrible lower light (indoors) video quality . Tape mechanism noise clearly audible on recording .
Summary: I wanted a replacement camcorder that would that was uncomplicated to use and yet took quality pictures that I could transfer to my computer. As usual I did my research online and read the reviews of several others and found this one good value for money. I wasn't disappointed with this neat little camcorder which is only slightly bigger than my digital camera, it is extremely simple to use and comfortable to hold, the controls such as record and zoom are within easy...
Excerpt: "I have had four previous camcorders but this is my first digital camcorder and - wow - the quality of the still photos I have taken on my new MV570i are just fantastic and stand out like 3D when displayed on my TV or PC monitor. The installation of the software supplied was a (no effort) dream with everything being found by my windows XP system. I purchased an extra battery to give me an extra 6 hours of operation but have so far not had to ...
Pros: Good price, picture quality and software
Cons: Feature changing complex, not ideal views in bright light
Excerpt: "...i very nearly bought the Canon 250i) The main difference between this camcorder and the 250i is the price, where the MV 750i is about £400-500 and the MVX250i ranges about £600-650. Notice the latter has an 'X' in its model number which means it is a 'Megapixel' camcorder; for normal consumers this simply means it has over 1024 million pixels whereas the 750i has 800,00 pixels on the CCD screen (the pivoting screen to look at instaed of looking through ...
Summary: I've been putting off buying a DV camcorder for nearly two years - the Canon MV series (500, 600, and now 700) has always been the most tempting for price and features but has always had a problem picking up motor noise on the recording. I finally gave in when the 750i came out this year, as it has new audio filters to reduce the motor noise, and I paid a very healthy price for it. I have to say it's a great camera, in almost all respects.
Summary: This camcorder is amazing! It has all the features the average user would ever need, and more! I'd never used a camcorder before but with the MV750i you can pick it straight out of the box and use it immeadiately. It is extremely intuitive to use, all the controls are placed for comfortable use. The film is easy to change, as soon as you open the film door it automatically opens the compartment.
