Summary: Canon's DC100 DVD Camcorder comes recommended as the top product of it's type and best buy. You can use it straight out of the box on automatic settings but it's a bit more difficult to set up for viewing on TV and computer than one might imagine. Not exactly a plug and play item.
Summary: This product is easy to use. It is very light so if you're taping for a period of time without a tripod your hand does not get sore. The menu options are self explanatory. Finalizing a disk is easy to do.
Summary: Cool camera. DVD-Rs work great but I'm having difficulties initializing rewritable. I don't think its the camera but more me figuring it out. Also seems to be picky on what brand the disk is. Bottom line I bought the camera from a store that sold it to me as a display model.
Summary: My wife and I bought this camcorder to record our baby's first days and weeks, and while the reviews weren't that strong, we felt it was the best choice for the price. I am happy to say that this camera has been a surprisingly pleasant experience.
Summary: I recently got new Canon DC100. I was using Sony TRV350 for last 2 years and so was a bit shaky going for Canon. But it seems I did the right thing.. The new camcorder has almost the same recording quality as that of Sony. Audio quality is even better.
The camcorder is easy to use, but performance is mediocre in low light.

Summary: The Canon DC100 is a very easy DVD camcorder to use, just set it to auto mode, press the record button by your thumb, and start recording. The microphone is surprisingly good for such a small camcorder.
