Excerpt: The DC19 is very slim and light. Its neat design is helped by the unusual placement of its battery, which is tucked away behind the LCD. This means you can't fit a bigger replacement, but it lasts for a decent one-and-a-half hours of recording. The slim design doesn't leave any space for an accessory shoe, however. The front of the camcorder houses an automatic lens cover, a flash for still photos and a single LED video lamp for shooting in the dark.
