Canon DC420

 

If you are looking for an overall good camcorder and aren't too concerned with still photos then the Canon DC420 is definitely worth considering. Everything about it is at least comparable to other similar DVD camcorders. It does however out do them in...

The low Lux Rating allows for some pretty low lighting conditions. Also the dual layer DVD format recording is a big plus

Not great for still images and also has a bit of a weak battery life

An overall nice camcorder. Nothing breath taking about it but nothing too horrible either.
