Has a repair notice on it.

  • Summary: I bought this camera about 21 months ago; I have only used it a couple of times but without a problem. When I tried to used it the other day I was able to record sound but no picture. I was prepared to buy a new camera, until I found that Canon has a repair notice on it for this problem.

Good So Far

M. Kratz, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought the ZR85 about 10 months ago. I'm happy with the way it works. It has more features on it then I will ever use. The Basic features work perfect. The factory battery died after about 5 months and would no longer take charge. That was a bummer. I have would recomend this video camera.

After almost 2 yrs, my ZR85 is fried.....

Laramy Hollida "Hollida mom", Amazon

  • Summary: I loved my ZR85, until a two months ago when it basically started a slow death. It would play tapes, but when in record mode, it was like gray and black infared video (just gray and black, weaving around, not static). I took it to Best Buy to the Geek Squad. Paid $24.95 to have it looked at.

Easy to use, nice images, but I've had a couple of problems

  • Summary: The camera is very easy to use, and is small and handy. It has more functions than you'd really want in such a camera -- if you are ever going to do something with the footage you will be using a computer and an editing program, so you don't really need the editing modes on the camera.

be prepared for its tape noise

Amazon
28 April 2004
  • Summary: First when I got the camera (I purchased from online), I kind of like it. Very compact. It does not come with DV tape and I purchased one from local store. Once I load the tape and I heard the noise that the tape is rotating even without making any videos.

  • Summary: I had my concers at first about this cam. I've read in several places that the stil pic quality wasn't good, and that the quality of the film was poor in low light. Well I'm glad to say that I have not had those problems at all.
