5.39 megapixel sensor, dual layer DVD support

Limited manual options, poor colour reproduction on auto mode, short optical zoom

High quality video capture, but it comes at a price. If you can handle the DC51's limitations and know how to work your way around the colour problems, then you'll find the 5.39 megapixel sensor delivers great image quality.

Canon's gives its top-of-the-line DVD camcorder a makeover with an extra megapixel, optical image stabilisation and support for dual layer discs.

For some, the DC51 might be a bit pricey for a single-CCD DVD camcorder. If so, then check out the other three Canon camcorders due in shops around March. All feature support for dual-layer DVD discs and the streamlined joystick controls seen in the DC51.
