Summary: I sell camcorders and cameras for a living. I've used and sold about 25 current camcorders and 50 cameras. I purchased the DC50 because Canon has the best lenses and image processors in the business. Here is everything you need to know.
Summary: I am still using this and I love it. Its easy to use and I like to watch the movies after I have used this to make a DVD. I take still shots and they always look great love canon products. Thank you seller and Amazon.
Summary: After researching on many similar camcorders from different manufacturers, I purchased DC50. What a great choice !!! This is my very first camcorder and nothing to complain about; easy to operate. I JUST LOVE IT !!!
Summary: I give this product a 5 star rating because I believe it's great at what it does. I see this as a high end consumer product and I don't think Canon pretends that it's anything else. I bought the DC50 after reading just about everything I could find to compare the Canon with the Sony.
Summary: While this camcorder may be one of the more expensive DVD based Camcorders, its probably one of the best you'll find before moving on to High Definition. I had actually purchased the Sony SR42 30 GB before this and had to return it immediately because its performance was highly disappointing.
Summary: I was looking for a easy camcorder for family use. Outside, inside for children events. I have a 4 year old and a 7 year old. It is easy. The quality is wonderful. I'm not too interested in the camera portion, however, as with most digital camera's there's a slow shutter speed.
Summary: Canon DC50?,....I can tell you everything you want to know about this amazing camcorder. A GREAT PRICE, FOR A GREAT CAMERA. AAH! you want to know more? JUST GO TO "REVIEW", READ Gabrieiio Bowie's "Nursie" Review, He says it all! Want more?...DON'T DELAY, BUY IT TODAY!...Then lets hear your SAY!
Summary: Did a lot of research before buying: looked at mini dv's, but tape seems so old-fashioned and fiddly now, and besides they're on the way out. Hard disc drives didn't convince on reliability, and reviews of earlier dvd camcorders criticised quality of recording compared to tape.
