11 Reasons Against

Average Expert Reviews

Poor Support

One Canon ZR200 owner who reviewed the product concluded that it did not have good technical guidance. Cnet.com said on CNET.com “Few manual controls; bottom-loading tape compartment; no accessory shoe; poor low-light performance; captures low-resolution stills” in their Canon ZR200 review and rated the product 3 stars.

Does Not Have an Image Stabiliser

Most video cameras that have been on the market for around the same time as the ZR200 do not have an image stabiliser. The Canon ZR200 is no exception to this as it too does not have an image stabiliser.

We think you might also be interested in alternative video cameras which also have an image stabiliser including the JVC GZ-R415, or the Sony NEX-FS100.

Does Not Have an HDMI Port

The Canon ZR200 does not have an HDMI port, although this is within the context that most of the other new video cameras also do not have an HDMI port.

Alternative camcorders which also have an HDMI port that you might want to consider include the NEX-FS100, or the PMW-F3 ($7,000.00) both from Sony or the JVC GZ-R415 which is also higher rated.

We think you might also be interested in other camcorders which also have an interchangeable lens including the Sony NEX-FS100 which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Built-In Display

We compared all the other camcorders which also have a built-in display to this video camera and we think the NEX-FS100, or the PMW-F3 ($7,000.00) both from Sony or the JVC GZ-R415 which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
