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. There is also a full screen, so if you want to play it on your TV, It fills the screen without those annoying bars on the sides. The picture quality is vibrant and you can adjust the brightness.
Summary: I bought the DC 210 in early 2007 on a whim. I still use the DC 210 today! I loved the small size; manageable for a mother's purse. It is not only convenient to carry but also simple to use. I often set the camcorder on a flat surface to record anything longer than one minute, so the video is not shakey. I used the DC 210 to record my son's activities (music performances, field day, school holidays, sporting events etc . . .
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. I'd highly recommend this as a beginner to mid-level digital camcorder for anyone interested in digital videos.
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.), but found the editing of videos with the tape was laborious. The idea of editing more quickly was what drew me to the minidvd comcorder, and, once I found some conversion software (AVS) for about $40, it works fine.
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.
