Canon Optura 50 Reviewed on May 11, 2005 Check prices
Product overview
Canon Optura 50
  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.0 stars Good
      Overall score: 6.9 (3.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 3.5 stars out of 6 reviews

The Bottom Line: Canon's feature-packed camcorder shoots very good daylight footage but has reason to be scared of the dark. Read review

Specs: CCD, Built-in flash, 1.1 lbs, 3.2 in, 10 x x Zoom lens - 4.6 mm - 46 mm - F/1.8-2.8, Canon Optura 50 - Camcorder - Mini DV, 5.2 in, 2.8 in

Product overview
Canon HR10
  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.5 stars Very good
      Overall score: 7.2 (3.5 stars)
  • Average user rating: 4.0 stars out of 1 review

The Bottom Line: Though the Canon HR10 is a decent camcorder, there are better choices for the same money because format performance and compatibility issues make it hard to recommend a DVD-based AVCHD model. Read review

Specs: CMOS, Built-in flash, 1.2 lbs, 2.6 in, 3.7 in, 10 x x Zoom lens - 6.1 mm - 61 mm - F/1.8-3.0, Canon HR10 - Camcorder - DVD, 5.2 in

Product overview
Canon ZR500
  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.0 stars Good
      Overall score: 6.6 (3.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 3.5 stars out of 17 reviews

The Bottom Line: Canon's compact, capable ZR500 MiniDV camcorder is a dream come true for videographers on a shoestring budget. Read review

Specs: CCD, 680,000 pixels, None, 0.9 lbs, 4.5 in, 3.6 in, Canon ZR500 - Camcorder - Mini DV, 25 x x Zoom lens - 2.6 mm - 65 mm - F/1.8-2.6, 1.9 in

Canon Vixia HF S10 Reviewed on April 6, 2009 Check prices
Product overview
Canon Vixia HF S10
  • CNET Editor rating:
    4.0 stars Excellent
      Overall score: 8.0 (4.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 5.0 stars out of 7 reviews

The Bottom Line: An excellent flash-based prosumer HD camcorder, you may nevertheless pass on the Canon Vixia HF S10 because it lacks an eye-level viewfinder. And the identical--but cheaper, because it has no built-in memory--Vixia HF S100 may also be a better buy. Read review

Specs: CMOS, Pop-up flash, 15.9 oz, 2.8 in, Canon VIXIA HF S10 - Camcorder - Flash card, 2.7 in, 5.4 in, 10 x x Zoom lens - 6.4 mm - 64 mm - F/1.8-3.0

Canon GL1

Specs: 3CCD, None, 2.6 lbs, 10.7 in, 4.6 in, 20 x x Zoom lens - 4.2 mm - 84 mm - F/1.6-2.9, Canon GL1 - Camcorder - Mini DV, 5.3 in

Canon Vixia HF M40 (Black) Reviewed on May 3, 2011 Check prices
Product overview
Canon Vixia HF M40 (Black)
  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.5 stars Very good
      Overall score: 7.8 (3.5 stars)
  • Average user rating: 4.0 stars out of 3 reviews

The Bottom Line: A fine follow-up to last year's M3xx series, the Canon Vixia M4xx series should please most home-movie-oriented videographers despite its relatively high price. If you don't need the EVF, the M400 is your best buy, but if you'll be shooting a lot in sunlight, it's worth it to step up to the M41. Read review

Specs: CMOS, 12.3 oz, 5.2 in, 2.8 in, Canon VIXIA HF M40 - Camcorder - Flash card, 2.9 in, - F/1.8 - 3.0, 10 x x Zoom lens - 6.1 mm - 61 mm

Canon Optura 400 Reviewed on March 23, 2005 Check prices
Product overview
Canon Optura 400
  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.0 stars Good
      Overall score: 6.8 (3.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 3.5 stars out of 8 reviews

The Bottom Line: A very good pocket camcorder that, in a pinch, can double as a decent snapshot camera. With a higher-resolution LCD and a video light, the Optura 500 is a better bet, though. Read review

Specs: CCD, 2.0 megapixels, Built-in flash, 1.1 lbs, 4.2 in, 4 in, 2.1 in, Canon Optura 400 - Camcorder - Mini DV, 10 x x Zoom lens - 4.7 mm - 47 mm - F/1.8-2.4

  • CNET Editor rating:
    4.0 stars Excellent
      Overall score: 8.0 (4.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 4.0 stars out of 29 reviews

The Bottom Line: One of a pair of Canon's first flash-based camcorders, the Canon Vixia HF100, delivers excellent HD video quality and performance in a tiny package. Read review

Canon Vixia HF20 Reviewed on April 20, 2009 Check prices
Product overview
Canon Vixia HF20
  • CNET Editor rating:
    4.0 stars Excellent
      Overall score: 8.0 (4.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 3.5 stars out of 17 reviews

The Bottom Line: While it's more expensive than its sub-$600 competitors, the Canon Vixia HF20 and Vixia HF200 deliver a more extensive feature set for the extra money. The HF200, which lacks internal memory, is probably a better buy than the HF20, though the HF20's all-black body is a bit classier-looking. Read review

Specs: CMOS, 2.99 megapixels, Built-in flash, 12 oz, 2.8 in, 2.4 in, 4.9 in, Canon VIXIA HF20 - Camcorder - Flash card, 15 x x Zoom lens - 4.1 mm - 61.5 mm - F/1.8-3.2

The Bottom Line: An excellent flash-based prosumer HD camcorder, you may nevertheless pass on the Canon Vixia HF S100 because it lacks an eye-level viewfinder. It's probably a better buy than the identical--but more expensive, because it has 32GB built-in memory--Vixia HF S10. Read review

      Overall score: 7.0 (3.5 stars)
