Canon ZR830

12 March 2009
  • Summary: If you don't shoot in low light and don't plan on using it to shoot still images, this feature-rich camcorder is a bargain.
  • Pros: Easy to use menu system with joystick control; impressive color in good lighting; wide-screen LCD; built-in lens cover; low price.
  • Cons: No accessory shoe or microphone input; bottom-loading tape compartment; low-resolution still photos; not enough stabilization at maximum zoom; poor low-light performance.

Easy Camcorder
11 May 2007
  • Excerpt: Amongst Canon’s new line of ZR camcorders, the ZR830 finds itself between a rock and a hard place. It is the middle child, wedged between the ZR800, which includes a microphone jack, and the ZR850, which offers better video quality and larger stills. Sadly, the ZR830 was fed table scraps and grew up to live a no-frills life of mediocrity. Let’s find out why.
  • Pros: - Compact, - Inexpensive, - Reliable media
  • Cons: - Cheap construction, - More compelling choices in model-up and model-down
