Video Quality is not very good

B.H., Amazon
27 April 2004
  • Summary: I have compared this model with some simular models, and the video/still quality is not very good. I have since returned this model since indoors it turned white to a dirty white, and blue to gray. On the same tape with a different camcorder the image looked great.

Very Nice

James B, Amazon
31 March 2004
  • Summary: I got the ZR40 (same camera but ZR50 has more options) about a week ago and I'm very pleased. I have had none of the problems mentioned in other reviews. The off white color when recording inside can be fixed by setting the white balance manually or setting it to outdoors.

Canon ZR50MC

C. McCage, Amazon
24 February 2004
  • Summary: I was concerned about the motor whine being picked up on the tape. I have not found this to be a current problem. The motor whine at playback is due to the motor AT playback. After cutting a DVD and playing back in a DVD player the whine was not present. Outdoors, I found the colors to be vibrant.

HuH?

James Petersen, Amazon
9 February 2004
  • Summary: What noise? On the basis of the reviews of this camera I ordered the accessory mike. It hasn't arrived yet but I have used the camera to film Honolulu Boy Choir reahearsals and performances. The 16 bit audio is impressive.

Great Camcorder At Great Price!

Nathan Orloff, Amazon
25 January 2004
  • Summary: This is an awesome camcorder! I've had it for about two weeks now, and I love it. The video quality is very good and its compact size makes it very portable. I have a Apple iMac G4 and the ZR50 runs outstanding with it.

ZR50MC need rework

Amazon
13 January 2004
  • Summary: I just purchased the Canon ZR50MC and just returned the ZR50MC. I'm new to the digital format, but I expected better quality indoors under normal lighting. My purpose is taking family functions like Christmas morning, but the result would be very graining or pixilized.

Too much buzz on this thing

Steven Cooley, Amazon
2 October 2003
  • Summary: I recently got this camcorder and am extremely frustrated at the motor buzz captured on tape. I have recorded three tapes worth of stuff, both indoors and outside. The whine of the motor is not perceptible on the outdoors shots but that's explainable by the background noise being loud enough to mask...

amazing tool

Amazon Customer, Amazon
2 October 2003
  • Summary: I bought this tiny cute ZR50mc on August, 2002. I am truly love its size and performance. I used sony pc-101 before, it's smaller but I like this one better. I saw many reviews talked about motor humming... Yes, it does as I found that really bother when I use it and play it directly on my TV.
