“I am currently looking to upgrade my camcoder to one...”

Written on: 29/03/2009 by YakMaharg (1 review written)

I am currently looking to upgrade my camcoder to one that is waterproof and came across this site with the reviews of my current MV5i MC.

I am astonished to find that quite a lot of reviewers consider it to be rubbish.

I have had mine now for about 4 years and have always been in awe of the absolute sharpness of the picture, the excellent microphone and the inclusion of a reasonably good quality stills camera.

This will continue to be my main general purpose camcorder used for capturing all… Read Full Review

“What can I say, I really messed up with the purchase...”

Written on: 02/08/2008

What can I say, I really messed up with the purchase of the Canon MV5iMC but I learned a valuable lesson. Don't read reviews on the internet and believe them. Better go and try for yourself whether in the shop or a friends who bought it first. Something that might be good for some won't necessary do for others.
So where to start, the Canon MV5iMC DV camcorder is not a bad package for shooting family and friends and it will probably be a lot better quality than your mobile phones, but the editing… Read Full Review

I would not recommend this camcorder to anyone, the camera is constantly saying remove cassette..and the video playback is always disfigured..Called Cannon but they were of no help, so I'm such with a camera that only works when it feels like it!!… Read Full Review

“I find that I get more use from my Canon MV51 MC...”

Written on: 21/04/2006 by Bagsey (1 review written)

I find that I get more use from my Canon MV51 MC digital camcorder than any other camera that I have owned. Used indoors, it is fine so long as you remember to check the white balance. The 10 times optical zoom is good. It has the advantage of being small, so it is unobtrusive. I actually was able to use it in some of the tombs in Egypt without getting thrown out. I have owned it now for about 4 years… Read Full Review

“I owned a Hi8 Sony brick for many a year, and I gave...”

Written on: 02/03/2006 by matrix010101 (12 reviews written)

I owned a Hi8 Sony brick for many a year, and I gave it to my parents when my son came along, and purchased the Canon MV5i MC digital camcorder as I thought we could carry it around a lot easier. That may be so, but it's worthless without quality video. I'm no Spielberg, but if you're shooting is mostly in the home for kids, you'll need all the lights on. Or just buy a different one! It's a nice camera, and it has the features, it's just not really up there, and I would happily carry that old… Read Full Review

The Canon MV5i MC digital camcorder has bad resolution compression artifacts, noise, and poor colors at low light, and also microphone pick up motor noise in low noise environment.

“I would highly recommend the Canon MV5i MC to people...”

Written on: 23/04/2003 by domosis. (1 review written)

I would highly recommend the Canon MV5i MC to people who want a very small and capable video camera for accasional video taking in daylight.

DO NOT buy this camera if your video taking is indoors or in low light as you will be disappointed. It does have low light and night mode but accompanied with the lower shutter speed the image is jerky and not "natural" looking. Sony units are in general much much better for these conditions in my experience (I also own a Sony TRV16E unit).

Good… Read Full Review

“Don't get me wrong, the Canon MV5i MC digital...”

Written on: 21/12/2002 by Drago. (1 review written)

Don't get me wrong, the Canon MV5i MC digital camcorder is something I always wanted and I'm far more than astonished. This little baby made from one of the best/most well known companies is great for shooting movies. It's very easy to use and edit your videos...of course after you've read the manual (which takes a few hours to properly understand) and and are confident with it. I highly recommend you get yourself a good video with S-video In/Out so you can get the best possible video and sound… Read Full Review
