What I expected - good base camera to start with

wangster411, Amazon
19 October 2004
  • Summary: Since I've only had the camera for less than one week, this is just my first impression: I researched around and finally went with the ZR20 for the following reasons: Price, Compactness, and base features. The ZR20 has a great price after rebate if you shop around.

Poor Video Quality in Low Light

Peter R. Wiley, Amazon
22 July 2004
  • Summary: I ended up returning this camera because I was not happy with the quality of video in low light. If you are going to shoot decent looking video indoors you would need to light the setting in some way -- I know because I experimented with a number of light sources including consumer halogen.

Very Good Camcorder

Fletcher Smith, Amazon
9 July 2004
  • Summary: I've only had this camcorder for a day but so far so good. Everything worked as expected except the widescreen mode. On a standard TV set it "sqeazes" the picture in instead of the usual black bars on the top and bottom.

excellent family camcorder

Amazon Customer, Amazon
2 February 2004
  • Summary: I bought this camcorder to use for family and work purposes. It is very easy to use, and the picture quality is good. It was simple to connect to my tv for viewing. I haven't tried to connect it to my computer yet, but I will have to get a firewire adapter for my desktop first.

A ok, so far.

Kirish, Amazon
14 December 2003
  • Summary: So far it has worked fine for what I want to use it for. I was not happy that I got a different one than the one with more things with it, but I wanted to get the camcorder to work on what I wanted to do.

Great little camcorder!

Jerome Bigge, Amazon
8 December 2003
  • Summary: Very small and compact, but well laid out so for as the user is concerned. Has both a color viewfinder and a 2.5" LED that extends out from the left side. To save battery power, you can only use one at a time however.

Excellent, So Far......

Ryan, Amazon
18 August 2003
  • Summary: I would like to take this time and give my input about the Canon ZR 20 MiniDV. First off let me say that the size of this thing amazes me enabling me to fit it in my pants pocket (compared to my old vhs).

Has Serious Audio Drawbacks

Tamara Teitelbaum, Amazon
7 July 2003
  • Summary: The small size of the ZR20 left everything compact...however Canon chose to place the microphone directly in front of the misplaced video heads (the tapes load from the bottom of the camcorder...a difficult task if you use a tripod). The result..

Best quality for the price

T. Wang, Amazon
11 May 2003
  • Summary: I've looked for a good DV camcorder to replace my old Hi8 camcorder. We need it to be compact to fit into one palm, and have image stablization. We also need it to have analog input to transfer old video.
