Purchased to play videos from my CANON XL1S Cameraand it lasted a week and started eating all the tapes
5 May 2011
Summary: Well here is an up date to my last review, I know now not to by used CANON gear no matter how much you save! Come to think of it all my CANON gear VIDEO and Film and DIGITAL doesnt seem to hold up very well at all. YEP NO MORE CANON STUFF, Customer support from CANON bites the dig one as well.This little box aint so bad, It plays my recorded Tapes to my computer for editing, since my PRO grade CANON XL1S That refuses to without eating tapes, BUYER BEWARE!
Summary: The price you see now on Amazon and other Amazon providers is way out of whack for what this camera is available for from other sources. I considered the Optura 300 and the Elura 50, but I already had a major investment in BP-500 series batteries and chargers. I also use an Optura Pi and a Rebel Digital. Be aware that the 300 and the 50 use other model batteries that are much less available and less robust than the 500 series batteries.
Summary: I researched small camcorders for 3 months, July through September of 2002, to take for a week in London and three weeks in Scotland. I selected the Canon Optura 200 MC. It arrived in October and at 60 years of age, I practiced with it and it was easy to learn. We left on our trip in mid May of 2003. I took 1174 digital stills and 17 hours of mini DV tape in that month. The pictures I got were wonderful.
Summary: The lens, single-CCD sensor and optical stablization on this camera are of course excellent, as one would expect from Canon. But the 200 MC's predecessor, the Optura 100MC, was a much better value for the steep price tag. For one, the 100MC came with an accessory shoe that made it much easier to attach a pro-level directional mic and light, which fed right off the camera battery and required no cables.
Summary: I'm by no means an enthusiast. My wife and I got this (based on on the reviews here) for our honeymoon and it did it's job wonderfully. The instruction manual was hefty, but it was very easy to follow. The fact that it was small and compact really worked well for putting it in my carry-on for the airplane. Therefore not leaving me to worry about it getting ripped off by storing it in luggage.
Summary: I've been using this camera for almost a year. Ease of use is excellent. Quality of video much better than the Canon ZR series. I don't use it for still images, have a Sony DSC-F707, so I can't comment. Low light video performance is better than I expected. This model has yet to eat a tape or moisture check in 10 months. I've used it skiing down the Rockies and treking through jungles. Of course, being a male, I'm now looking at moving up to the Optura 300.
Summary: The Optura 200MC is a good choice for three types of users. First, if you need a small camcorder with decent quality. I take this camcorder trail running and get great footage passing people while leaping over logs, etc. I simply couldn't carry a bigger camcorder some of the places my Optura 200MC goes. Second, my acting classmates borrow the camcorder to review rehearsals. It's easy for a student to "point and shoot" without training.
