Canon DC230

  • Excerpt: Sony has been a clear winner in this space for a long time. And truly speaking there is little initiative save for some half-assed scramble to somehow make it in the same space. Here we have the Canon DC230 Camcorder that is quite similar to most in this space, but comes with its fair share of drawbacks. Let me show you how. Design The DC230 is a bit on the heavy side weighing 405g, however, the body is like a regular MiniDV camcorder with dimensions of 54 x 90 x 128 mm.

  • Summary: It doesn't have a lot of bells or whistles, but the Canon DC230's long lens and solid video quality makes it stand out a little from other inexpensive DVD camcorders.
  • Pros: Good video quality; long zoom lens with decent stabilization.
  • Cons: Awkward controls and viewfinder; poor still photos.

Canon DC230 è dotata di un eccellente zoom ottico che consente di ingrandire fino a 35 volte il soggetto ripreso.
