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...
