Summary: This is my second DC 22. I bought my first one 5 or 6 years ago, and only had to by another one because my first one quit reading discs recently. I like the dvd format and the ease of use. Great Camcorder!
Summary: Warning: Do not buy this camera if you expect to do anything other than record pictures and view them on the small window! The support software is hidious and will not work. You CAN NOT connect to a computer using the ROXIE software and the software upgrades are a bait and switch!
Have had DC22 for 7 years, still going strong to create directly usable mini-DVDs

Summary: I am just learning to use this camera. I loaded the supplied Roxio MyDVD for Canon software on my computer and plugged in the USB cable.

After a few phone calls back and forth with the Canon service center (in Virgina, not India which is nice), we found that you should NOT go to video capture.
Summary: While I have some reservations about this camcorder, I believe that it is the best mini-DVD recorder for most people. Briefly: this camcorder is easy to use, can take decent pictures and excellent video at a reasonable price. Number one on my list was that it needed to be easy enough for my technophobic wife. Operation is as simple as 1,2,3,4: Turn it on, put in a blank DVD, press record/stop, finalize the disc.
