New Canon camcorders

New from Canon are six new camcorders: the Mini-DV ZR800, ZR830 and ZR850 models, and the DVR-R/RW based DC210, DC220 and DC230. Both lines offer a 16:9 ratio, 35x optical zoom, 1,000x digital zoom, and a Quick Start mode which puts a camera into a 30-minute standby mode, which takes less than a second to power on from. The DC220 and 230 (pictured) feature miniSD slots for transfer of stills, while the ZR830 and 850 read full-size SD cards, including High Capacity cards able to hold anywhere between 4GB and 32GB. Worth noting, however, is that the ZR cameras use Canon's older DIGIC DV processor, versus the DCs' modern DIGIC DV II. The ZRs will go on sale in January for $279, $299 and $329; the DCs are being released in March for $399, $449 and $499.
