Canon DC301 Camcorder Review

 

The Canon DC301 DVD camcorder makes widescreen moviemaking simple. Easy to master controls, 36x Advanced Zoom and built in video light put a world of cinematic possibilities at your fingertips.

Although this camera is small and has all the bells and whistles, it’s basically meant for shooting family videos and having them on a disc. That’s it. You can’t edit it unless you buy editing software and god forbid if you lose the software that comes...

Canon DC301

 

The Canon DC301 is a DVD camcorder that features a 36x advanced zoom, straight to DVD recording, instant shooting with the QuickStart button and more flexibility in navigation with the joystick. It can also store up to 108 minutes on an 8 cm dual layer...

Movies in minutes is what DVD camcorders promises, and with the DC301 you can relive your birthday surprise (in widescreen) while the champagne is still fizzy and the kiss-a-gram has just left you blushing. Simply slip the mini DVD discs it uses into...

Don’t expect glossy menus or Hollywood production values – the DC301’s sub-megapixel sensor serves up only average video and sound quality on home-made discs. If you do want to edit your movies, DVD files are notoriously bloated and tricky to cut down...

Be honest, do any of your mates really look better in High Definition? Canon’s old-school DVD spinner may be about as cutting edge as a kaleidoscope but it does the job – decent quality movies in minutes – at a price that’s positively old-fashioned.
