It is safe to say that the Canon DC20 is not the perfect camcorder for every consumer. While some will find that it offers everything they are looking for, others will decide that this unit is far from their ideal model. With that being said, anybody considering the DC20 will need to weigh both the pros and cons before they make a final decision.

The great thing about the DC20 is that it can record both full and half sized DVDs. Although some will argue that quality is still a bit less in these types…

It is safe to say that the Canon DC20 is not the perfect camcorder for every consumer. While some will find that it offers everything they are looking for, others will decide that this unit is far from their ideal model. With that being said, anybody considering the DC20 will need to weigh both the pros and cons before they make a final decision.

The great thing about the DC20 is that it can record both full and half sized DVDs. Although some will argue that quality is still a bit less in these types of camcorders, there is something in the way of convenience that makes this so special. While video quality is not perfect with the DC20, it is far from poor. If you do not mind a bit of a compromise you will surely love the fact that you can take a DVD straight from the DC20, and insert it into your DVD player.

The design of the Canon DC20 is something that most consumers praise. It is smaller than the majority of the competition, and most find that it is quite comfortable even when shooting for several hours at a time. This makes it easy to work with the DC20 no matter if you are only filming for a few minutes, or if you are filming a two hour long dance recital.

As far as downfalls are concerned there are two that you will want to be aware of. First and foremost, as mentioned above video quality is nothing more than average with the DC20. For a novice this should not be much of a problem, but if you are looking for more this model is not right for you. The other drawback is the fact that editing options are few and far between. Again, if you are a novice this is not a big deal.

The Canon DC20 performs well if you are looking for general use and convenience in a compact design.
