Canon DC10

 

Canon makes some interesting claims about the DC10 DVD camcorder.

Nice features, compact frame

Image quality could be improved, interface a little cluttered

A fairly decent camera that struggles to find a balance between quality and usability

Canon DC10

 

DVD-based camcorders still have a way to go before they can match traditional MiniDV camcorders. Still, compared to other DVD camcorders, the DC10 is a decent offering.

Comparitively small chassis ; Easy operation

Image quality could be improved

It's difficult to recommend this camcorder over much cheaper, MiniDV models, because the image quality lags so far behind. The appeal of popping a DVD straight out of the camcorder and into a DVD player is as mesmerising as ever, but the format still...

Canon DC10

 

I love the size and the ease of its controls. I like the results if you move or do not follow the subject too close.

size, compact, inexpensive.Great first timers cam

Strap is flimsy. Needs longer battery life.Needs a way to edit out cuss words and unwanted shots, after the shots are logged
