Product overview
Canon ZR100
  • CNET Editor rating:
    2.5 stars Average
      Overall score: 5.8 (2.5 stars)
  • Average user rating: 2.5 stars out of 5 reviews

The Bottom Line: Canon's bargain-basement camcorder provides home-moviemakers with the tools to shoot surprisingly high-quality video, but good lighting is essential. Read review

Specs: CCD, None, 15.2 oz, Canon ZR100 - Camcorder - Mini DV, 2 in, 5.1 in, 20 x x Zoom lens - 2.8 mm - 56 mm - F/1.6-3.2, 3.7 in

Canon ZR200
  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.0 stars Good
      Overall score: 6.0 (3.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 2.5 stars out of 15 reviews

The Bottom Line: Canon's affordable, compact ZR200 performs beautifully when the lights are bright, but you're probably better off with its less expensive sibling, the ZR100. Read review

Specs: CCD, None, 0.9 lbs, 3.7 in, 20 x x Zoom lens - 2.8 mm - 56 mm - F/1.6-3.2, Canon ZR200 - Camcorder - Mini DV, 5.1 in, 2 in

Canon Vixia HF S21 Reviewed on June 7, 2010 Check prices
Product overview
Canon Vixia HF S21
  • CNET Editor rating:
    4.0 stars Excellent
      Overall score: 8.0 (4.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 4.0 stars out of 3 reviews

The Bottom Line: Though they're an excellent trio of camcorders, the Vixia HF S21, HF S20, and HF S200 are significantly more expensive than their respective competitors, especially since the S20 and S200 lack electronic viewfinders. If you can forgo some of the subtleties of the manual controls, you can probably get what you need with a cheaper camcorder. Read review

      Overall score: 6.8 (3.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 3.0 stars out of 10 reviews

The Bottom Line: Canon's latest entry-level camcorder, the ZR700, is easy to use, affordable, and ideal for wide-screen moviemaking, but low-light performance remains a problem. Read review

Specs: CCD, 680,000 pixels, None, 0.9 lbs, 1.9 in, 25 x x Zoom lens - 2.6 mm - 65 mm - F/1.8-2.6, 4.5 in, Canon ZR700 - Camcorder - Mini DV, 3.6 in

      Overall score: 6.4 (3.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 2.0 stars out of 9 reviews

The Bottom Line: A basic, inexpensive DVD camcorder, the Canon DC100 is a safe, if unremarkable, choice. Read review

      Overall score: 7.2 (3.5 stars)
  • Average user rating: 4.0 stars out of 4 reviews

The Bottom Line: If you can get past the DC50's sticker shock, you'll find a very nice, simple DVD camcorder that can produce some surprisingly good snapshots. Read review

Specs: CCD, 5.39 megapixels, Built-in flash, 16.9 oz, 10 x x Zoom lens - 6.1 mm - 61 mm - F/1.8, 5.1 in, 2.4 in, 3.5 in, Canon DC50 - Camcorder - DVD

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, 3.7 in, 10 x x Zoom lens - 6.1 mm - 61 mm - F/1.8-3.0, 5.2 in, Canon HR10 - Camcorder - DVD, 2.6 in

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 HF M30 Reviewed on August 5, 2010 Check prices
Product overview
Canon Vixia HF M30
  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.5 stars Very good
      Overall score: 7.5 (3.5 stars)
  • Average user rating: 3.5 stars out of 10 reviews

The Bottom Line: At its best, the Canon Vixia HF M3x series--composed of the M300, M30, M31, and M32--delivers a very good blend of video quality, features, and performance for the money, but some people may find the touch-screen interface extremely frustrating to use and the battery life painfully short. Plus, you really need to bump up to the highest bit rate quality. Of the series, the HF M300 is the best deal. Read review

Specs: CMOS, Built-in flash, 11.3 oz, 2.4 in, 15 x x Zoom lens - 4.1 mm - 61.5 mm - F/1.8-3.2, Canon VIXIA HF M30 - Camcorder - Flash card, 2.7 in, 4.8 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, 2.9 in, Canon VIXIA HF M40 - Camcorder - Flash card, - F/1.8 - 3.0, 10 x x Zoom lens - 6.1 mm - 61 mm, 2.8 in, 5.2 in

  • Average user rating: 3.0 stars out of 5 reviews

The Bottom Line: If you're looking to shoot great HD video on the cheap, keep looking; the Canon Vixia HF R series delivers decent video at best, even for its modest price. But for a low-priced model with mic and headphone jacks, the HF R100 is a pretty good deal. Read review
