Summary: Very good little camcorder,just wish it had a longer continuous recording time. But quick to change discs and keep going. I have the Model ZR 800 and the DC210 is a much better camera with great zoom. Very compact and light weight. Good for any user.
Summary: I love the portableness of the DC210. You can fit it in a large pocket. The Quick Start button is handy if your low on battery but need to capture those last seconds of whatever your filming. The menu is easy to use, and the joystick it a great feature.
Summary: I was surprised at just how compact the CANON DC210 was when I opened the box. It fits snugly in my palm (and I have pretty thick hands) and I was able to maneuver the controls very comfortably. I was worried about the positioning of the battery but that turned out to be a non-issue.
Summary: I bought this camcorder on sort of a whim w/ my "stimulus check", at Office Depot, on clearance (brand new in a box) with a one year money back extended service plan for $141.00. I've had a Panasonic minidv camcorder w/ better features (usb, software, etc.
Summary: I found out that if I had the side screen open I could not finalize my disc. It took me a whole day to figure out that if you close the side screen, and look through the eye hole, the finalize option is activated and I am able to finalize my disc CD R.
