Consumer review by: nick.ward121 (



This camera features a much larger optical zoom than most of its competitors, and for anyone who's done anythign with digital photography, you know that it's the optical zoom, not digital, that makes a camera. While other companies proudly proclaim...

Large optical zoom. Easy use.

No night-shot.

Product Specifications

The Canon MV630i lets you shoot movies and still images, edit and organize them on a computer. You can also plug the MV630i straight into a compatible printer to take advantage of Canon's Bubble Jet Direct function. High image quality combined with the versatility only digital technology can offer, makes this camcorder irresistible. The lens technology, which Canon has been developing for 60 years means that whether you're recording videos or shooting XGA still images, all 800,000 pixels will make every image startlingly clear. With the extensive features and accessory range of the MV630i, you'll have no excuse for missing the perfect filming opportunity. The Night Mode lets you film in low light conditions. Everything you record with the MV630i is routed to the appropriate storage media with the best possible results. For instance, videos are sent on the optimum route to miniDV tapes. Still images can be sent to the SD memory card via a different route. Simply connect your camcorder directly to a compatible printer to obtain beautiful color pictures. The MV630i comes complete with DV Messenger software, a service you can use in conjunction with Windows Messenger available on Microsoft Windows XP. DV Messenger enables you to exchange files and have live conversations using your camcorders as webcams.
