Canon MD205

 

I bought this camera for my 11 year old son as a first camcorder. He was able to get it up and running without even looking at the instruction booklet and was quickly producing good quality films. For it's price I think it is as excellent quality product.

Sorting out what lead you need to download films is a bit confusing and knowing whether your computer is up to the job. But friends with more wisdom than me have been quick to sort me out!

Easy to use and able to access menus to change settings.

Zoom button difficult to operate and could be in a better position. Effects button on viewer could be better placed. When filming and you wish to press button, camera is likely to shake causing bad picure quality for short time.

Easy to use. Simple as it sounds I like the lens cover

Position of battery, gets in the way if you want to use the veiwer rather than the LCD. Would be better positioned inside the LCD compartment. With it being Canon I thought the image quality would have been better
