|I really like this latest addition to the Canon
ZR family of mini - DV camcorders. It has all of the features
of the well liked ZR-10 camcorder and now it is loaded with more.
One excellent feature is that Canon has included a lighted key
pad for easier view in the dark. There is an accessory shoe for
a light or mic. However this model is being acclaimed for having
an extended recording time on an eighty minute tape, you can
now expect four hours of recording. There is a 10x zoom and a
200x digital enhanced. To help steady zoom shots Canon has included
an optical image stabilization. You can use a .44 inch view finder
or a 2.5 inch LCD screen. The progressive photo mode improves
digital stills. The stills are stored on an 8 MB postage size
card, that can be inserted into an optional card reader. All
this and more (see below) and with out the battery this camcorder
weight is 1.3 pounds.

Camcorders are moving towards a larger LCD monitor. Like the
Canon Optura Pi this DV camcorder comes with a 3.5 inch screen.
The advantage of a larger screen is that there sharper and you
can see more detail in a larger area. If you want to play back
you can use the view to watch what you taped. They are easier
to see in sun light as well. This will add some extra wait to
the camcorder but it well worth it.
This could be a consideration of weather this is a choice
or not for you.
