Canon ZR10

 

The compact, futuristic design and intuitive user interface of the Canon ZR10 easily make it the most polished camera in this roundup. Unfortunately, video quality was spotty in some instances, especially when output to VHS tape. This makes the ZR10...

Canon ZR10 Camcorder Review - Canon MiniDV Camcorders

 

Canon has always had a history of making MiniDV camcorders that don't fit the typical camcorder mold; the ZR10 is no exception from that rule. Its small sleek design and good features make it live up to the claim on the pamphlet, " the="the"...

ZR-10 Nightmare

 

Between my friends and I we bought 4 ZR-10 at the local Best Buy. 2 of us had the consistent problems with the loading mechanism. 50% defect is very high and the factory offers no extended warranty and only offers 90 day.

Price and weight

Poor quality

Good Little Camera!

 

I have used the Canon ZR-10 for about one year. I have filmed used it hiking, at the beach, children's programs, water skiing, and around the house. I have had no difficulties with it. I use it in combination with an Apple Powermac G3 233 mHz and...

Small, Compact, Efficient Design

Port covers could be designed a little heftier

My 14 month old loves this camera

 

The other reviews are, for the most part, spot on with respect to the image quality, which is good, but not great, and the size, which is *SO* handy, but I wanted to mention the great part about this camera - it is well made.

Small, Lightweight, Tough

Picture quality less than great.

Too fragile

 

I liked what I got wih this camera. I was quickly making Videos and editing them on the Mac. Everything worked great although I found the instruction manual to be a chore to find anything.

Easy to use

Flimsy
