Canon ZR85

PC Magazine
12 October 2004
  • Conclusion: The ZR85 is inexpensive, comfortable to hold, and has a powerful zoom lens, but its video comes up short.
  • Pros: Cheap. 20X optical zoom. Slim design with great ergonomics. Decent stills for a sub-$500 camcorder.
  • Cons: Video could be sharper. Bottom-loading design inconvenient with tripod. No flash for stills or lights for low-light shooting. Has manual focus but no manual focus ring. No external mic port.

Expert Review

Easy Camcorder
3 September 2004
  • Excerpt: The Canon ZR85 has a 1/6th-inch 680K CCD that performs relatively under normal lighting conditions, but shows a decrease in quality under lower light due to the smaller size of the camcorder and, thus, the CCD.
  • Pros: -Good Handling, -Decent Still Options, -Good video performance, -Analog to Digital Pass through, -Large optical zoom (20x)
  • Cons: - Bad low light performance, - No S-video out, - No Mic input, but includes headphone jack??
