Disappointed, frustrating - its painful.

Norm Donovan, Amazon

  • Summary: I have had a DC220 for a couple months and I am growing to dislike it more and more although some of this is due to frustrations with the mini-DVD format. The DC220 records on mini-DVDs. These cannot be viewed on a DVD player or transfered to a computer until they are "finalized". Once finalized you cannot record any else on a mini-DVD.

Disappointed with grainy picture

  • Summary: After researching and reading reviews, I purchased this camcorder from BrandsMart at what seems to be a good price at $278. I had to test it and make a decision to keep or return within 5 days because of their return policy and ended up returning it. Outdoor videos looked great, even on my 50" HD Plasma TV, however, when I recorded indoors in my living room, the quality was horrible. My old VHS camcorder did better than this thing.

  • Summary: We thought that it will be very easy to use considering that its using a dvd disk already unlike the tape. BUt when we tried to download it to our computer, it cant be detected. So we called the canon service center here in the phils. they said we need a firewire connection and firewire cable. We bought a firewire cable but the problem is the video cam doesnt have a firewire hub only usb.

  • Summary: I too have the same problems with downloading the images to my computer. Everytime its a struggle. Sometimes it works and other times it doesn't. Not sure what the problem is.
  • Pros: Easy to handle when filming.
  • Cons: Not easy to transfer the data to your computer! Also you need to have a very steady hand otherwise you have a problem with this camera.
