Summary: i used this camcorder indoors for a recital and the picture quality was just so poorly, that the tape was useless. Luckily i used a 4 year old Sony DV as backup, where the picture quality was superb, compared to Canon. I think Canon ZR70 is ok for outdoor usage and greatly priced.
Summary: I purchased the ZR-70-MC after reading several reviews and studying several other camerass. Initially I was very pleased with the result-outdoors, that is. In sunlight the camera produces excellent picture with great color and crisp outlines.
Summary: After extensive online research, I bought this little piece of equipment for an upcoming trip. Thankfully, I decided to do some testing before leaving. While the design and features of this camera seem excellent, it leaves a lot to be desired in performance.
