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.
