  • Summary: Didn't come with a charger and battery doesn't last very long. I had to buy a charger for the battery, but its ok because it was hard to find any used Mini DV camera at a low price.

Great for analog to digital conversion.

  • Summary: I'm only using it as a Analong-to-Digital converter, saving our old VHS tapes onto MiniDV and transferring them to the computer. To that end, the camcorder works wonderfully. My only gripe is that you have to use the remote control in order to utilize the A-to-D function. I didn't have that originally so I needed to purchase the remote separately.

Lots of fun, versitile, small and easy to use with pretty good features.

  • Summary: I paid $80 for this zr-40 and it is well worth the money. I use it to record directly to my laptop with either the 1394 output or the svhs output and a canopus converter. It also records on digital tape (a hassle compared to a flash drive). There were later models about $40 more but I didn't see the the svhs output.

Worst Product I have Owned

jckrieger, Amazon

  • Summary: As many others have reported, this Zr40 began eating tapes with only a few hours of use on it. I have lost many precious moments recorded on tape because of the tape loading problem. The only good thing I can say about this camera is the bag was large enough to hold my Nikon P100. The Canon is going in the trash.

Canon ZR 40

tci51, Ebay
17 July 2010
  • Summary: This is the second Canon ZR40 that I have. It is a great little MiniDV camera and I use it to transfer my MiniDV, 8mm, and VHS to my computer to convert them to digital format. However, the 1st one I have just quit working all of a sudden and I could not get it repaired at a reasonable rate. The coments that I have heard and read is that this is a consistent problem with this camera. It works great when its working, but the camera is not known for it's reliability.
