Summary: Despite advances in the consumer home-video field, it seems one area where we are still in the Commodore64 age. The specs are higher than they were for older analog models, but the actual resulting picture quality is only slightly better when conditions are perfect. Imperfect conditions can result in picture quality that is worse than that of analog camcorders. The CanonZR30MC tries to digitally sharpen data-compressed images. The result can be frustrating.
