Canon Optura 200MC Camcorder Review - Canon MiniDV Camcorders

 

Although Canon continues to deliver with manual control options - the video performance, low light performance and audio performance are less than desirable on the MiniDV Optura 200MC digital camcorder, MSRP $1,699. With this ''upgrade'' Canon has done...

Canon Optura 200MC: Big Movies from a Small Video Camera

 

Thanks to the small size and form factor of MiniDV videotape, video camcorders are tinier than ever. The Optura 200MC is Canon's latest entry into the "micro video" market and, as with previous mini models from Canon, the 200MC delivers good quality...

Finally, the Optura is also equipped with a MMC (Multimedia card) slot that can accept any standard MMC or Secure Digital card. These are the same types of cards that you might already be using in your Palm Pilot, and the Optura uses these cards to...

Canon Optura 200MC Mini DV

 

After several months of use, I have grown attached to my Optura 200MC. The digital still camera takes acceptable 1.33MP stills, has a pop-up flash and an SD card slot. Since most of my pictures end up on the web or in 3x5 prints, the resolution is ...

Lightweight, usable, crisp shots, flash for stills

Short battery life, night mode is a joke

Canon Optura 200MC MiniDV

 

I purchased this camera as a supplement to my GL-1, for times when I needed a smaller camera for hiking and camping. It is excellent in this role, but I wouldn't trade it for the larger camera.

Handles well, excellent picture quality, sized about right for hiking, good monitor and viewfinder. Very good battery life.

Poorly placed microphone makes getting good natural sound difficult. No lugs for camera strap.

Great quality camcorder

 

I use this camcorder mainly to film skydives. It is very sturdy and has tons of features that as a matter of fact I don't need. It has a build in flash that actually does something. It’s small and light and those two features are essential when you...

Sturdy, tons of features, light

Battery life
