Canon DC220 review: Canon DC220

 

Canon DC220

Long zoom lens; decent image stabilization; fast autofocus; shutter-priority exposure mode.

Fair-to-middling overall video quality; poor still photos.

A simple DVD camcorder with decent performance and image quality, the DC220 won't blow you away, but it also will not let you down.

Canon DC220 Camcorder Review

 

The Canon DC220 ($449 MSRP) is a respectable entry-level DVD camcorder sporting familiar specs and features: a single 1/6 CCD, electronic image stabilization, a 2.7" LCD, and a modest but effective array of manual controls. In many respects, the...

Canon DC220 Review and Prices

 

Despite being a step up from the DC210, Canon's introductory DVD camcorder, the DC220 still feels and performs very much like a low end, entry-level unit. The DC220 is an updated version of last year's Canon DC100 and while it may have improved in...

Simple to use, great handling, includes 16:9 widescreen mode, powerful zoom

Disappointing image quality, poor low light performance

Canon DC220

 

The Canon DC220 is a baseline DVD camcorder, all told, and the imager matches the price. Inside is a 1/6" CCD with 680,000 gross pixels (450,000 effective pixels in 16:9 with the stabilization off, 360,000 effective pixels in 16:9 with the...

If you really must own a DVD camera and don't have a tonne of money to spare, you could probably do a lot worse than this cute budget offering.

35x optical zoom, smart and compact design, plenty of functions for the asking price

Less than 1-megapixel, ineffectual night mode

Canon DC220

 

A simple DVD camcorder with decent performance and image quality, the DC220 won't blow you away but neither will it let you down.

Long zoom lens ; Decent image stabilisation ; Fast autofocus ; Shutter-priority exposure mode

Fair-to-middling overall video quality ; Ppoor still photos

If you're looking for a relatively inexpensive DVD-based camcorder and you don't expect to shoot in dim lighting much, the DC220 is pretty safe choice. Of course, as I said earlier, if the DC220's added features don't make a difference to you, you can...

If you got bored with your regular analog video recorder then try your hands on this compact DVD camcorder

Light weight ; Good zoom level

No flash ; Low pixel CCD sensor

Shows some improvements in design. Canon now includes a tiny joystick, well located for your thumb, to navigate the menus. That's a big step up from the array of buttons on the left side of the DC100's body. However, the DC220 does have a triad of...

And Canon camcorders take advantage of more pixels to give you amazing quality

Video recorded on DVD-R cannot be edited on a computer
