User Review

  • Summary: Based on a number of reviews I took the plunge and bought the Canon MV890. I got it for a really good price at a well known catalogue shop! Basically, the brief was for a camcorder that was easy to use, not too big and that I could download the movies to my Mac laptop to edit and record onto DVD.
  • Pros: Ease of use
  • Cons: Nothing - yet

  • Summary: My trusty best friend, I love my Camcorder. This is my second one, gave my first to Grandkids when they went to Florida, will use it again next year when we go. It's lovely to be able to download onto DVD then watch on our large screen TV, awesome.

Okay for the money

Stella Bella, Amazon
17 April 2007
  • Summary: I was a bit disappointed with my purchase. I automatically assumed that this had night vision when I read it had night mode. I had purchased it in hopes of doing a Most Haunted experience in my house (you know, catch an orb or two) but to my disappointment it didn't have the infrared light.

This Is Great Value For Money

  • Excerpt: I received this not long ago and I haven't regretted it. It's great for the money and it's really lightweight. Being able to film in widescreen is also a great advantage especially with it being so common place nowadays. It also has lots of shooting modes built in but I haven't tried them all yet.
  • Pros: Small, Compact, Widescreen
  • Cons: No Photo Capture, No MiniDV Tape Or PC Cable Supplied, No Night Mode

J. Bassett, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a wonderful piece of kit. For less than £180 you get a true widescreen camcorder with digital image stabalising, excellent sound recording, pretty good image quality and all the features you could posibly hope for. And, whilst it has manual white balance and manual focus and exposure etc.

Little Gem...

K. Jamison, Amazon

  • Summary: I knew exactly what I was buying when I purchased this camera. I love the widescreen feature, that it also records in normal full screen mode and that I can plug in a microphone to capture quality sound at the source.
