Now a little bit dated, and even considered by today's standards to be a little bit bulky, the Canon MV750i is a handheld video camcorder that was a big hit when it was new. It's flexible and durable, and most importantly for me, easy to use!

Grainy at times, old compared to some of the newer camcorders

When I say a little bit dated and bulky, I'm talking a couple of years and a couple of centimetres. If you take the current average specs of a handheld camcorder, you're going to be looking at something that can fit comfortably in the palm of your hand without it feeling heavy. ..."

"...i very nearly bought the Canon 250i)
The main difference between this camcorder and the 250i is the price, where the MV 750i is about £400-500 and the MVX250i ranges about £600-650. Notice the latter has an 'X' in its model number which means it is a 'Megapixel' camcorder; for normal consumers this simply means it has over 1024 million pixels whereas the 750i has 800,00 pixels on the CCD screen (the pivoting screen to look at instaed of looking through ..."

Feature changing complex, not ideal views in bright light
"I have had four previous camcorders but this is my first digital camcorder and - wow - the quality of the still photos I have taken on my new MV570i
are just fantastic and stand out like 3D when displayed on my TV or PC monitor.
The installation of the software supplied was a (no effort) dream with everything being found by my windows XP system.
I purchased an extra battery to give me an extra 6 hours of operation but have so far not had to ..."

A good first camcorder, easy to use, wide range of features
Not good amateur film competitions
"The features of this camcorder is available on various websites and so I won't go into the hassle of droning on about it's features - as it's all technically too boring and complicated - if you're interested you can always look it up and you'll know what you're doing anyway. Rather, i will talk about what it's like to use this camcorder. If you're a budding photographer, forget this - as the print out will not be good - the pictures taken will only ..."

Terrible lower light (indoors) video quality. Tape mechanism noise clearly audible on recording.
"I bought the Canon MV750i camcorder as a replacement for a broken 4 year old Panasonic miniDV and was very disappointed, so much so that I returned it and got a refund. Outside footage is great, especially the colour reproduction, when compared to my old camcorder. But indoors in lower light conditions (e.g. a living room, during daytime with the lights on) this camcorder really struggles. Video is very grainy, colours are washed out, autofocus struggles ..."

Built on Canon's heritage of precision optics, the MV750i is not only effortless to operate, it also has one of the highest zoom ranges of any camcorder in its class.Canon's engineers have always abided by the rule that technology has no purpose unless it can be put to good use. That is why the MV750i camcorder works straight out of the box. You won't need a PhD in systems theory to get started - just turn it on and start shooting.The compact size and slim, ergonomic palm design feels as easy in the hand as it is to use. Buttons controlling all important features fall right beneath your fingertips, and you will be delighted by the wide proportions of the color LCD. Menu navigation is intuitive, uncomplicated and available in 8 languages.Sitting just beneath the surface and awaiting the more adventurous is a generously specified camcorder with a raft of advanced features. These start with a remarkably high ratio 22x optical / 440x combined zoom so you will never be far from the action. Shooting in low light conditions is no problem thanks to 'Night Mode'. 'Super Night Mode' uses a powerful LED light source so you can even capture footage in complete darkness. A new Night+ mode allows you to turn the LED on and off whilst shooting.The MV750i camcorder includes Image Stabilization to keep the action steady without a tripod and a 1/6" high resolution CCD sensor for sharp images. The camera features DIGIC DV, a dedicated DV processor that raises the bar on image quality, recreating 'emotional' colors, tones and details to deliver images we humans love and remember: Redder apples, greener grass, bluer skies and warmer and more realistic skin tones.Capture digital still images with 'Progressive Photo System' technology. The MV750i gives you the ability to capture stills whilst shooting video footage, and can even store these direct to either MMC or SD memory cards. A mechanical shutter provides true digital still camera functionality, eliminating the blur that plagues conventional camcorders. The vendor independent PictBridge standard is supported, allowing for PC-less direct printing to any PictBridge compatible printer.Motion-JPEG files record direct to either MMC or SD memory cards for easy Internet sharing. Up to 60 minutes of either QVGA or QQVGA formats can be recorded straight to card or copied to card from DV tape. An Analogue-In and A/D converter are included.
