Happy with what I got for the price

Mark Tripodi, Amazon
15 March 2014
  • Summary: The one I had to play movies on was broken. I needed the ability to play these movies with all the old tapes I had. This would allow me to hopefully transfer them to a computer.

ZR 850 Good Camcorder no Documention

E. Jeffers "wood turner", Amazon
13 November 2009
  • Summary: The camcorder is used by the Wood Turners club for demonstrations video and displayed on a large TV. The picture quality is very good. I had to purchase a seperate video cord to transfer the picture to the TV which I knew was not provided. The menu for setting up the camcorder is fairly straight forward, however if the supplyer had provided documentation with the camcorder, it would have been easer to set up. I had assumed that documentaion would be included.

Nice Little camera

dakotaSong "bookish librarian", Amazon
16 June 2008
  • Summary: This is an excellent little camera for the price. It was everything I expected. There is a little bit of motor noise when the zoom is used but nothing major unless you are looking for something super professional. I like the size - fits in a pocket or purse for travel. I would recommend it. It also takes still photos on a card - nice extra.

zr850 slow snap then miss

gl_eng "Gav", Amazon
10 June 2008
  • Summary: seems good for a camcorder. Although the still camera has a higher Resolution CCD (1 Meg), The snap button does not have the 2 step feature as seen in the better Optura line (model 50/60). So when you snap the picture, it does not snap right away since it has focus first. There is no way to prefocus and then snap the picture. Therefore you will miss the moment. The viewfinder is not adjustable. Canon decided to stop manufacturing the better miniDV line models.

iMac "T.A.S.", Amazon
9 June 2008
  • Summary: Shipped on time & arrived in new condition as advertised. I paid under $200 & it uses a miniDV tape. I prefer this format over mini discs because mini discs only hold "up to 30 minutes each"

It's Great

Overstock
18 April 2008
  • Summary: My husband bought this for us because I was wanting a Camcorder that also took pictures. This one does both with great clarity as long as I do all our photos on the sports option due to we have a 5 yr old and a 5 month old and still shots are hard to come by. We have had the camera for about 2 months now and I am still learning new features with it.

Great Camcorder

Overstock
15 March 2008
  • Summary: This is a great little camcorder light easy to use. I have used it for home video and my son has used it for movies in his college film classes. It has a great set of features and connected and imported to my macintosh with no problems and worked with iMovie and iDVD without issue.
