Widescreen (16:9) is all the rage at the moment. If you have a sparkling new widescreen TV and want a budget camcorder to play back widescreen video you have shot, the Canon MV830i is worth a look. Sporting a true widescreen function and with the excellent Canon lens allied with an electronic image stabiliser and 20x optical zoom makes  this a worthwhile camcorder for the first time user. As this camcorder is PictBridge compatible, any stills taken on the memory card can be printed by connecting straight to a PictBridge printer. The interface is easy to use and data transfer is via USB 2.0.

Easy to use, 20x optical zoom, value for money, PictBridge compatibility.
We prefer optical image stabilizer, no external mic / accessory capability.
