Good Video Camera, easy to hold and use.

 

I lost the1st DVD I recorded due to not knowing how to properly finalize the disc (you have to have the device plugged in or FULLY charged)

I like the option to format disc in video or VR, and the battery last for quite a while, easy to reach all the buttons and overall easy to use

On occasion you get a blank frame. The video quality hasn't been the best when I put the videos onto my computer

Good value for first camcorder

 

This is my first camcorder and its "easy" setting got me up and shooting in minutes so I could concentrate on how to take steady shots, learn to pan and zoom nicely, and all the other stuff a snapshot taker needs to learn at first. I've had it for ......

Easy to use, plenty of manual features, takes stills on sd card

Ocasional blank frames, discs and spare bateries expensive

Disappointing product from Canon

 

It was a reasonably priced camcorder

This product doesn't work as well as Sony camcorders I have had. The images look bad, and I've had to send it in for repair because it wasn't finalizing discs. I'm having the same problem again. I wish I had purchased a Sony

Bad design : DC 410 out of your shopping list

 

Don't consider DC 410 in your shopping list. Not sure what the designers and marketing at Cannon were thinking.

Good battery life is the only plus

Cannon's DC 410 is a bad product by design. No USB connectivity and very difficult to use. I bought it to replace my Sony DCR 550. No match to the ; Sony, esp which has USB, touch screen and extremely easy to use

Works great, problems reproducing copies

 

The camcorder works like a Canon should, however I was totally surprised that although the disks play fine on my DVD player, I could not archive them or make copies for my family without a conversion program, which can be downloaded free (unknown...

Worth the Price

 

I recently purchase this product to capture moments of the birth of my second child and use during my upcoming vacation. The video quality is excellent. Taking still pictures does not work as well. The pictures are very grainy. This works for the...

Very good buy!!

 

I recently purchased this item as my family and I are about to go on vacation. I'm really impressed with the clarity & distance of the zoom and it's smoothness. It is easy to operate, light weight just as advertised. Overall I'm very happy with this...
