Works great for family trips and around the house.

Excerpt: We got this for a family trip to New York. I worked great for us and was easy to use so my mom went out and bought the same one for her. We found a good price on line and bought it for her too. I would reccomend it to you as well. It is easy to use and work as long as you remeber to open the lense cap. :) My two year old loves having the memories you can share to time to come.
Excerpt: Canon - DC210 Mini DVD - Its affordable and easy-to-operate, you get all the performance of DVD technology, along with the brilliance and power of a Genuine Canon 35x Optical Zoom. You also get an impressive array of features found on more expensive models. With the DC210, you'll enjoy capturing the precious moments of your life and sharing them with everyone.
Good for the money, very easy to use, good for novice to Pro. Very compact.

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. 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: Its compact and it uses the small disk. One thing is I am trying to get the images on the computer and havent figured out how to us the smaller disk. The best thing is that it is small and picks up very good images. So far i am happy with the product.
Pros: Comfortable to Operate, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound
Summary: This camera is packed with technology for the price. The only problem i am finding is that the DVDs cannot just be popped in and viewed in a computer without using the software, kinda annoying. even in the high compatibility mode, i have this problem and have tried it on many DVD players using a DVDRW not sure if DVDR will be any different
Pros: Comfortable to Operate, Great Features, Great Picture Quality
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 ordered this Canon Camcorder to document family events, pets and the like in a very casual atmosphere. The fact it uses mini DVDs, has typical Canon quality and cost so little makes it the perfect choice for anyone wanting the ability to shoot video, store it off a computer and playback through their TV for casual viewing with friends and family. Simple, easy to use and cheap. What could give more for this use? Who wants more?
Pros: Comfortable to Operate, Simple Controls, Versatile
