User friendly, fantastic results.

R. K. Tarpley, Amazon
29 September 2005
  • 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.

Excellent, especially at today's price

domeboy "domeboy", Amazon

  • 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.

Thoughts from a layman

Tyler Tanner, Amazon
20 January 2004
  • 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.

Great DV Camera from Canon - Solved ZR Problems

C. Young "clay2young", Amazon
21 November 2003
  • 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.

Good small, inexpensive camcorder

Thomas D. Kehoe, Amazon
7 September 2003
  • 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.

No better value for the buck

Tyler Tanner, Amazon
22 June 2003
  • Summary: I purchased this camera a week ago around [$$$]. There were other electronic stores advertising this camera for around [$$$]. The next closest deal I found for a camera of this size, with 1.3 megapixel still picture and mini dv technology was around [$$$]. This camera is a steal! I've had it for a week and what caught my attention initially was the quality of the construction. This camera is solid.
