Summary: I recently purchased a ZR30MC and am thrilled with the output and the design of the Camcorder. I read many reviews on the net on the ZR10 and have heard many complaints about filming in low light conditions. The quality in low light is just fine - maybe they fixed the problem with the ZR30mc.
Summary: The images from the Canon ZR30MC camcorder are terrific. I cannot imagine another video camera any better. This camera's design and quality is excellent, well thought out, and it is incredibly easy to use.
Summary: As a novice to the camcorder world I was very concerned and confused about the wide range of features and prices available in the market so, unusually for me, I took a little time and did my research. Boy am I glad I did, and I am especialy pleased with the result.
Summary: My original goal in purchasing this camcorder was to record a festival in Russia where I would need a reliable battery between charges, good low light shooting,and plenty of space on tapes so I wouldn't run out. In my first week of shooting, I tried various scenarios.
Summary: This small compact DV camcorder is worth every dollar, but not worth every penny. It has great handling, a slick look, with an awesome menu system. It has various digital effects, including chroma key, which I thought was very cool.
Summary: I've had my ZR30MC for a week. The video image quality is truly excellent, the unit has more features than I'll ever use and the size of the camera makes it easily go anywhere. Even the Video magazines are giving this a must see. Best of all, it is an excellent value! As you can tell, I love mine.
Summary: I got my camcorder two week ago. After reading some reviews I decided that the best review should be my own review on the field. The video quality is excellent, terrific, and the still picture feature is above a normal rate. It is small but fit pretty well on my hand.
it doesn't have a flash,otherwise excellent camera/camcorder

Summary: I'm amazed how much stuff and features they were able to cram into this little camcorder and still have it ergonomical, compact and light. Unfortunately they left out one very important feature to any good still camera... the flash! Stills taken indoors by lamp light are grainy and dark.
Summary: Great size, excellent video quality and very easy to use. It's nice to not have to haul around a big video camera. This one fits in a coat pocket, a purse, or a back pack and doesn't get in the way. Don't let the small size fool you though! It has a lot of nice features, but keeps it simple...
Summary: Read the specs, compare ALL the features, talk to those who own it, and you too will buy it! Simply the easiest to use and best quality digital video camera you can buy! And the price---what more is there to say? Some cameras you buy and get home to find no microphone plug!
