Canon HV30

 

An old dog learns some new tricks

Performed excellently in low light, 25p Cine mode, unique and arresting design, extensive audio options

MiniDV is a dying format, may prove a bit bulky for some

Despite its reliance on an outdated format, the Canon HV30 is a superior high-def camcorder that offers exceptional value for money. If you can get over your anti-tape prejudice and embrace MiniDV, this model will deliver on every level.

Canon Vixia HV30 review: Canon Vixia HV30

 

Canon Vixia HV30

Generally excellent video quality; solid feature set for its class; well designed

Tape housing feels a bit flimsy; fixed eye-level viewfinder needs a better eye cup; manual focus dial a bit loose

An extremely minor upgrade from the HV20, the Canon Vixia HV30 remains a quality HDV camcorder with a couple of performance issues.

Not much to tempt you over last year's HV20 but Canon still rules the roost when it comes to raw picture quality
