Canon Vixia HF200 Review

6 May 2009
  • Conclusion: For $750, the HF200 is probably the best HD camcorder you can buy at this price range. The video is very good, stills are better than decent, it reacts quickly, has OIS, and feels just right. The most affordable “real” HD camcorder we’ve tested is the $599 Sony HDR-CX100 , but the HF200 is so much better, we’d definitely urge you to spend the extra cash. For the record, Samsung’s new HMX-R10 will be the cheapest at $499 when it arrives this summer.
  • Pros: Compact; light; full HD camcorder with 15x zoom; 3.89MP CMOS sensor
  • Cons: Still relatively expensive, but getting there

Canon Legria HF200 review

18 May 2009
  • Excerpt: The Legria HF200 is the cheapest model in Canon's revamped HD camcorder range, but at just under £600 it's still the most expensive model here. It looks it, too, with a design that's both classy and reassuringly solid. It only loses ground to the competition by not having a touchscreen. This means there's no spot focus or spot metering, but in general use we found its mini-joystick to be quicker than the others' touchscreens.
