Thread: Canon MV630i

  1. #1

    Default Canon MV630i

    Does anyone know if this camera is mini-dv format? It doesn't mention it on the Canon website (unless I've missed it).

    I've heard that mini dv is the way to go, 8mm tapes are a thing of the past.

    If it is - kewl, im buying it!

    Also, does anyone have any comments on this model? I did consider buying a Sony, but this model seems to have more features like 20x optical zoom, compared to the Sony 10x optical zoom which is more expensive.

    "canon mv630i" to google found some reviews. The very first link answers your questions. B-)

    It is mini DV. But as far as I can see, it doesn't record movies. There's a lot to be said for having an 8mm tape drive in the box, to record movies. ;-)

    The removable memory just saves stills. For video, you use the IEEE1394 cable to the computer.

    it must record movies, because why would it be called a digital VIDEO camera...?

    I am getting firewire for whichever camera i buy, because USB is too slow or something.

    Also gonna get a DVD writer sometime...

    All right, I thought so too. But the specifications say it can be a webcam, and things like: "Memory Card: MMC : YES, SD :YES, Movies REC : NO".
    They don't say how long you can record for.

    You got me curious. A link on the seventh page of google output gives the recording time as 60 min using MPEG2 compression. ;-)

    Perhaps they take it for granted that we will take it for granted.
