Canon DC230 review: Canon DC230

 

Canon DC230

Good video quality; long zoom lens with decent stabilization.

Awkward controls and viewfinder; poor still photos.

It doesn't have a lot of bells or whistles, but the Canon DC230's long lens and solid video quality makes it stand out a little from other inexpensive DVD camcorders.

Canon DC230 Review and Prices

 

For little more cost than the DC220, the Canon DC230 DVD camcorder offers an improved feature set and marginally higher quality images. The DC230 remains an affordable and easy to use low-end DVD camcorder. The optical setup is a step above the...

Simple to use, great handling, includes 16:9 widescreen mode, snaps digital stills

Poor low light performance

Canon's DC230 is a good choice for those after a mid-range digital video camera that combines good quality video with a strong feature-set and the convenience of DVD recording.

Good quality video footage, 35x optical zoom

Poor still-image quality, No aperture priority mode

Good video quality ; Long zoom lens with decent stabilisation

Awkward controls and viewfinder ; Poor still photos

While the Canon DC230 doesn't have a lot of frills, it still stands out as a solid, inexpensive DVD camcorder. The slight bump in resolution over its little brother gives it a much-needed improvement in video quality, and its modest feature set should...

Canon - DC230

 

As we all know, technology stands still for no man (or woman) and just as the early analogue camcorders gave way to the digital revolution, now the supremacy of MiniDV has been seriously challenged by the ...

A smooth, lightweight, stylish and affordable widescreen DVD camcorder with high quality images and split path processing, along with many useful - but some unhelpful - control systems.
