Great for beginners and for those a bit more advanced. I love this camera!

Summary: I love this camera. It is user friendly for those who are not tech savvy. However, it also offers advanced features for those that are more fluent with photography and videography. I would highly recommend this camera to beginners and to those that are a bit more advanced.
Summary: After using this camera for a while, I already have more than a dozen DVDs, there are no way of playing the DVDs in my computers, tried various versions of Windows with no luck, can't play them in DVD player either, the only way is to play it in the Camcorder itself, the software supplied by Canon labeled as "Digital Video" solutions disk is a lie, it doesn't do video, only handle images.
Summary: Though Canon is a great brand, I wasn't too impress with this particular camcorder. I thought it was a bit grainy...I think the picture quality could have been a little better. I actually return this product.
Summary: I received this product and have had a wonderful time using it. The picture quality and ease of use are great. I have three children and wanted something smaller and with a better image enlarge function. I couldn't ask for an easier to use product.
Summary: I purchased the DC230 as a Christmas gift for my wife. It took a couple of times using it to understand the itnitializing and finalizing processes. But now I consider myself an amatuer expert and enjoy the quality pictures and movies from this camcorder. Would recommend to anyone.
Canon DC230 is fully capable of more than what most people would need

Summary: Great Price and nice product. I compared the models on a different web site but made my purchase on Amazon because the price was the best. The DVD's that Amazon recommended I buy with the camera were the wrong ones. Beware of this problem. The record standby mode is confusing and I have several full DVD of nothing but the kitchen counter, when I thought the camera was off and missed the shots I wanted. Zoom was not the 30 to one I expected.
