There are many reasons that you may want to consider the Canon DC 10, as well as a few that could drive you away. First and foremost, the Canon DC 10 is easy to use and operate. So obviously, beginners to shooting videos will find this model to be a perfect choice. But on the downside of things the DC 10 does not offer enough features for advanced videographers to feel comfortable. Additionally, the image quality could stand for a bit of improvement as well. As you can see, the DC 10 is either a hit or miss. Some people will love what it has to offer, while others will pass it by for more advanced options.

Even though DVD players are superior to VHS players in the home, this is not necessarily true in the world of camcorders. Although DVD camcorders such as the DC 10 make it easier to store video, they are not as good as MiniDV models as far as resolution and quality is concerned.

The biggest benefit of the Canon DC 10 is that it can burn videos to DVDs in real time. The DVDs are half sized 80mm discs that load into the side of the unit. The ability to accommodate these half sized discs is the reason that the DC 10 is shaped like it is; and this is a good thing. Holding onto and shooting with the Canon DC 10 is much easier than some models from competing manufacturers.

There is still a long way to go before DVD camcorders catch up in the way of video quality. The DC 10 does an okay job as far as quality and color is concerned, but it is not nearly as good as some of the competition.

For a beginner who is looking for a DVD camcorder the Canon DC 10 is a viable option. Just make sure that you also take a look at what the competition has to offer.
