Expert Review


The Optura 500 is the top of the line for matchbook camcorders on Canon's side of things. While this bad boy may not pack as much punch in the low light and video performance areas, the Optura 500 is relatively cheap, and includes some features which...

Canon Optura 500 Camcorder Review - Canon MiniDV Camcorders

Canon Optura 500 Mini DV Camcorder


As you look around the camcorder, there's an amazing amount of controls, buttons and devices on every side. Most of the controls are easy to reach, with the exception of a couple on the right hand side of the camcorder. This isn't a huge problem, as...

The auto white balance tends to be slightly warm, but using the manual white balance will eliminate this problem. The auto exposure slightly underexposes but not too much, which helps keep detail within the image. Overall, the Optura 500 has the optics...

Canon Optura 500


The Canon Optura 500 is a MiniDV Camcorder with a 10x Optical Zoom.

Canon raises the stakes for all-in-one digital imaging devices with the release of the Canon Optura 500 (and the companion Optura 400; see a comparison table at the end), which is as adept at shooting digital video as it is snapping high-resolution...

love it


I got this camera a few months ago and I picked it out partly because of the great size of it. My hands are actually pretty big, and it's still great for me. Picture quality is consistently great. Won't regret it!

Canon Optura 500 Mini DV Camcorder


This is a matchbook type camcorder so easy to carry during travel, plus well design when holding the camcorder from ergo perspective.

Built-in flash allow photo taking in all lighting condition. Well thought thru design on the strap with movable arm, video and photo buttons.

Only 10X, video taken using digital zoom is not clear. Original battery does not last long, secondary battery required.

Optura 500: Far from perfect, but still the best


I’ve been a big fan of Canon DV camcorders since I bought my first ZR in 1999. That one was unfortunately stolen on an overseas trip, which started my nearly annual upgrade cycle. Since the ZR, I’ve “graduated” to the Elura 2MC, then...

Ultra compact DV camcorder with top notch Canon optics

Expensive price due to feature bloat ; plastic feel ; poor battery life
