    Great Camcorder! Only a couple draw backs., July 9, 2007

    While this camcorder may be one of the more expensive DVD based Camcorders, its probably one of the best you’ll find before moving on to High Definition. I had actually purchased the Sony SR42 30 GB before this and had to return it immediately because its performance was highly disappointing. This Canon camcorder however takes excellent footage. It also takes great still images too – a cool function in addition is that you can set it to take photos while in recording mode (at a little lower resolution). Doing this allows you to take advantage of the digital zoom to get in a little closer for still photos. This brings me to one of the draw backs of the camera, it only has 10x optical zoom. While while it is not bad, there are many cameras with a more powerful optical zoom. The plus side, is that the digital zoom (the 40x option, not the 2000x) is actually pretty good. Maybe not to the full 40x, but for the first little bit of additional zoom it still looks great. The only other draw back for me was getting used to the rewritable dvds and transferring them to my computer. It took me a little bit to figure out (just set up the disc in VR-mode) but after I did it was terrific. Now I just plug in the USB cord and put on the video into my editing program and edit away. You may here some reviews noting that the controls aren’t all the intuitive, but just spend a minute or two with them (or read the manual) and the controls and functionality are good. Ultimately I would rate the camera a 4.5, but it wasn’t a choice. If you’re debating between this camera and others, just spend the few extra bucks and get this one. Also, if your far from moving up to high def, get this camera as well because I believe its towards the top of regular def (it does does have the option to shoot in either 16:9 or 4:3). Enjoy!

    Positive:

    I just bought couple of weeks ago. Camcorder works good if you record during day time indoor or outside and good quality. I have not tested the photos yet.

    Negative:

    Night time video recording not good quality. little better than my 6 year old camcorder.

    NO touch screen like Sony and others (Plain old Joy Stick).

    Hand Strap is in the bottom not comfortable holding camcorder straight.unless your hand is big.

    Battery life, You need additional batteries if you plan to record >30 min.

    I sell camcorders and cameras for a living. I’ve used and sold about 25 current camcorders and 50 cameras. I purchased the DC50 because Canon has the best lenses and image processors in the business. Here is everything you need to know. If you buy this model allow one day to figure it out, because I work with electronics every day and it took me hours to figure everything out(read the end to hear my problem). The picture is amazing, great color saturation, it makes high def camcorders obsolete (unimportant). The zoom is great, you can set it to slow or fast speeds, and I mean very slow or very fast. The light for recording at night is effective up to about 10 feet, very good for one LED light. The microphone is perfectly sensitive, you dont need an external one. To give you an example of zoom power, you can zoom on to a persons face effectively up to approximately 40 feet away. The camera function is one of the best I’ve ever seen in a camcorder. Shutter lag (a delay in taking the picture after you hit the button) will be corrected in any recent (05′ to 08′)camera/camcorder if you buy a high speed memory card. Look for an extreme III or ultra II MINI SD card, not micro sd and not sd, get MINI SD. Its not the camera its a cheap memory card that causes delay. As for vista users, you dont need to plug in the camcorder to the computer. Just buy a program for about 40 bucks, thats vista friendly, and that converts the dvd to the computer memory. 4 more things you need to know. This model only takes Panasonic, TDK or Maxell brand mini DVDS. If you buy a DVD RW, you can record over it 3 times before quality suffers. DVD R can only be recorded once. You must initialize before you record and finalize after you record each dvd IN THE CAMCORDER, not the computer. Furthermore, the process for each takes less than one minute, but cannot be performed on battery power, it must be pluged in the wall to initialize and finalize dvds. Last thing, this is what took me hours to figure out. Set the date and time in the camcorder or it will not take pics. ALWAYS, format a memory card before you use it in any camera or camcorder, see your manual to see how. Lastly, and only read this if you buy this model, you change modes buy sliding the on button all the way down. If you hit the menu button and it doesnt match the page in the book, slide down the on button and change modes, then hit the menu or function button again. With all that said, buy this Camcorder with no hesitation, if you want to record directly to DVD.
