    If you compare these two, how's the video quality?

    1) iSight vs. Canon ZR2000

    2) iSight vs. JVC Handycam

    Is the iSight truly better video quality than these two?

    BTW, if the iSights are better....then I'm in the market for one...or two. :-D

    From : good reference for you, BTW.
    The Canon ZR200 (not 2000, incidentally) records in standard DV format, while the iSight can only record in VGA quality. The Canon runs about $300 on the street these days, I think, maybe less. The low light performance will be better on the Canon, and of course, you can actually take it with you outside and start videoing.
    If you have to choose between the two, get the Canon. I have the Optura 60, which is a very nice cam, and have been happy with Canon products for a while. I don't have any experience with the JVC. Check out the website (or others like it) for yourself.

    the DV cam will always be better (unless it's complete junk) especially in low light situations
