    Just ordered a Canon MV-X250I from Simply Computers for £459 inc p+p.
    £50 cheaper than anywhere else on Pricerunner.
    Anyone else ordered from Simply - are they any good?? hopefully it should come quickly as there shows 70 in stock

    Bargain for people looking for a good dv camcorder I think :thumbsup:

    Yes a friend bought a Canon MVX250I from them in november for £249,We have one ourselves and since using the camcorder have been very impressed with its performance. I will shortly be using it to record a friends Rock band at a charity gig in london, Will let you know how the camcorder performs. The customer service from simply computers is excellent, My friend ordered the canon on the saturday and it was delivered on the tuesday. Sorry I typed the price wrong the correct price was £449 and not £249.

    Hi Timse1981 sorry about the typing mistake I was half asleep when I posted on here, To answer your question on performance the mvx250i I have performs excellent in all lighting conditions with no sign of any grain even in low light, The one piece of advice I have is to switch off the auto slow shutter when shooting footage handheld as the speed selected is too slow. I also use a sony HVL20DM Video light with the MVX250i which greatly improves the performance both indoors and out. I hope this is of use to you

    Thanks G0UDG,

    Ive read good reviews of the Canon MVxxx series in video mags. Ive also heard that the Canon MVxxx series pics up a lot of noise from the mechanism does the Canon MVX250i suffer from this?

    Hi Timse1981 The info about the microphone picking up motor noise on Canons MVX series camcorders is totally incorrect I have tried out the MVX25i the MVX35i and also the MVX10i as well as my own MVX250i None of these pick up motor noise using them all in recording conditions without background noise NO motor noise was picked up by the built in mic on any of these.

    The sound quality from the built in microphones on these camcorders is very good. I have owned my MVX250i for about 6 months now and am very impressed by its performance (Even without the video light), I will be using it to record my friends bands warm up gigs I will let you know how it performs. I hope this is of use to you

    Yes the Canon MVX250i has an intelligent hotshop which powers an external Microphone or other external video accessory such as a video light, sockets such as an external mic socket and a USB terminal are also there as well as the usual dv in and out and AD/DA CONVERTER. The MVX250i works well as a webcam also I tried it out last night for the first time with great results. Hope this helps.
