Summary: Overall this Camcorder is still a top of the line Cam... Easy to learn all its functions through the manual that comes with it . I recorded a concert of 1 hour and a half and it used three mini DVD disks that I purchased at Walmart for under 15 bucks of a set of three .. Also it takes great photo's as another handy option so it's like a two fur one deal . If you buy this item you will won't regret it..
Summary: THIS IS MY FIRST CAMCORDER BUT IVE SEEN SEVERAL DIFFERENT ONES. BUT THIS CAMCORDER OUT RATES ANY OF IT.. YOU CAN DO SO MUCH WITH IT WITHIN THE CAMCORDER OR ON TO YOUR COMPUTER.. YOU JUST HAVE TO READ THE BOOK CAREFULLY.. THIS IS THE BEST DVD CAMCORDER AND I SUGGEST YOU GET ONE..
Summary: I did a lot of research on camcorders before I decided to purchase the Canon DC-40. It has been everything I expected and more. The video and audio quality is far superior to our old videotape camcorder. The DC-40 gives me all the tools I need to get the best picture and sound under any condition I am shooting under. To get the same number of pixels the DC-40 offers, you might have to pay twice as much.
Summary: This camcorder does an excaptional job. You get what you pay for. The still pictures are very nice for being part of a camcorder. The only complaint I have is the batteries don't seem to last long.
Summary: This is the machine you have been waiting for. It is so easy to use. It will do almost anything you can imagine in terms of still photography. It is as if you have the best digital compact camera. The quality of the DVD movies are amazing. It is like looking through the window when you watch your video on the TV. It is as close to High Defonition as I have ever seen.
Summary: I've done my web research and it pointed me to buy the Canon DC40 among other dvd-camcorders in market. It was such an amazing experience using it to capture moments during my nephew's birthday party. The still shots were absolutely fantastic! The video was like no other...it was very clear and sharp. You may want to tweak the settings to get that film look versus the homevideo look on your video shots. Also, tweak the stills settings as well to get that SLR-like shots.
Summary: Excellent. Easy to use. Easy to use instruction manual too. I tried out a SONY camcorder, and found the CANON much easier. Switching between camcorder, and still photos is as easy as flipping a switch. Photos are excellent! I have printed out 5X7s and 8X10s. I take a lot of photos, and they come out great. The flash is small and only reaches so far. Photos may be blurry or dark if the flash can not recharge in time, or you are too far away. Turning on a light helps this.
Summary: I wanted to buy a camcorder that records with high quality.This camcorder does just that...Wonderful quality and easy to use controls makes it very user friendly....Also finalazing the video to dvd takes just 2 minutes which is good.
