Excerpt: I purchased the Canon ZR800 Digital Video Camcorder three months ago and I am very pleased with it. This Mini DV camcorder fits nicely into my hand with dimensions of 4 1/2″ L x 3 1/2′ H x 2″ W. It is small but not too small. Another nice feature is being able to leave the battery installed and use it time and again without charging it every time.
Summary: i bought this used for 100 bucks because i had some old tapes i wanted to back up to my computer. It is amazing me how far technology has come since this camcorder was new. I remember how state of the art i felt my first one was. However even then, the image quality was and still is terrible. What can you expect from .3 megapixel resolution? Even my crappy phone has a 5megapixel resolution.
Summary: I needed a device to convert all my existing DV tape to a digital storage device. These can cost thousands of dollars. Here all shiny and new, this cam met my needs perfectly. The shipping time was right on as well. Thanks!
Summary: Read heads on ths camera are worn. I have to insert a tape cleaner prior to every playback. I would not recommend this product. It appears that the product is aged. Maybe a new one would have worked better.
Summary: The camera didnot play. It will shoot video but it will not play back. I can't find the invoice or card. I think my wife lost it. I was not satisfifed with this item. Do you have any suggestions???
Summary: I used a camcorder like this before & was very impressed with the quality of video it took. I bought this used & have not enjoyed the video quality as much. I'm not sure if it is lighting issues or if the camera had been dropped.....I will probably go the new route the next time.
