Canon Optura 50 camcorder

Truffaut451 "truffaut451", Amazon
23 September 2007
  • Summary: This is an outstanding single chip camcorder. They don't make them like this anymore unless you are willing to spend upwards of $2,000. It has excellent automatic features but the value lies in the manual controls for shutter, aperture, standard/widescreen, white balance and audio. What makes this camera stand out from today's consumer camcorders are features like accessory shoe, mic input, headphone output and top loading. Great camera!

one nice family minidv camera

rob, Amazon
7 December 2006
  • Summary: i'm a mac user who wanted a family camera so i can input footage into the mac and edit the footage. after spending way too much time researching video cameras online and at brick & morter stores, i purchased the canon optura 50. the optura 50 has firewire which is needed to have the footage transfered from the camera into a mac and have the mac edit software (imovie/final cut express/final cut pro) "see" the camera. this aspect has worked flawlessly.

  • Summary: The Canon name says it all! Have four Canons, two of them digital! BUT finding one you want at almost half the price,......what can I say. This camera is not a stripped down version, and the included extras were a pleasant bonus. This camera is great....it can be as simple as you like, or as complicated as a professional photograher would want.....you will not be disappointed. I trust Overstock as much if not more than the Canon website. Great service all around.

Canon Optura 50 MiniDV Digital Camcorder w/ Image

Overstock
17 May 2006
  • Summary: We are so excited with this video camera. We bought this to replace a Sony handicam that was stolen from us. It has all the booms and bangs that our old one had and plus some that it didn't. We tried it out yesterday and my gosh we just love it. Plus the fact it is smaller and easier to handle. Best of all we are so happy with the price. Thanks Overstocked and you came through once again for us.

Canon Optura 50 MiniDV is a Great Camcorder

Mark "Mark", Amazon
23 February 2006
  • Summary: We have been using the Canon Optura 50 miniDV camcorder for almost a month now and we are very pleased with its performance. The picture quality is very good, it is easy to operate, and the digital camera is easy to use with good quality pictures. I have not yet tried the software to burn DVD's, but if that works as well as the camera it should be a breeze. I highly recommend this camera to others.

"If you are looking for a camera and camcorder combo this is the one for its price."

  • Pros: High 2.2 Mp resolution for picture (not bad for a camcorder), amazing 1.2 Mp video quality, amazing compatibility, and Flash
  • Cons: Night Mode Horribble, Kind of Low Zoom, Might become confusing

Camescope Canon MVX40

amor_msa1, Ciao
30 July 2006
  • Summary: Camescope assez simple d'utilisation avec d'excellente optique pour une qualite de prise de vue quasi irreprochable, les deux seuls inconvenients sont l'absence de torche integree et un stabilisateur d'image pas super performant. Sinon l'eronomie de la machine est plutot bonne et intuitive ce qui evite de passer 2 semaines dans la notice pour savoir comment allumer le camescope.
  • Pros: Tres complet et qualite de prise de vue quasi irreprochable
  • Cons: Pas de torche/Stabilisateur d'image pas super performant
