what a monstrous looking camcorder ::giggle::
#3
Was tempted by this, but just spent 30mins on research.

It's discontinued.
Poor battery life (under 20mins).
Poor in low light conditions.
No provision for editing (software or USB/Firewire).

I've passed on it.

When there are new models / versions out, the previous models are price reduced. 20 mins shooting time is average for a camcorder with the supplied battery & LCD viewing. I went for a high capacity battery with my Canon miniDV which gives 3-4h of battery life. Choice is yours... :)

I still think Mini-DV is deffo the way to go, the DVD camcorders just dont cut it IMO.

Huh? that's old technology - it's on a cassette tape! :giggle:

Hard disc is the way to go, then you just download it to a pc or a memory card. Or even the camcorders that record straight to memory card!

just a general question on DVD camcorders. Can you play the 8cm camcorder disc straight from a DVD player/PC or do you have to play it by plugging the camcorder to the TV?

You can play straight in a DVD player :)

Video has to be heavily compressed to be stored on HD or memory card, so you lose quality.

Also, if you lose your HD camcorder on a trip, you lose ALL your footage.

also, if the hard disk is filled up during a long trip, you can't change disks.

Looks like lots of other DVD camcorders to me and is actually very small.

I agree with edi. The supplied battery is best replaced with an aftermarket battery of the same physical size giving an hours continous use. I would be interested to know if anybody ever bothers to edit their tapes. I always used to buy camcorders with an editing facility but having never used it I saved money on a replacement by not bothering with it. You can always edit on a PC.

BTW IMHO I would only ever buy a Canon they are far and away better for the price than any other make.

Your loss furq.

does anybody know if you can buy the dvds for this camera that have a recording time of more than 30mins??

If so, where?

Thanks :)

Ace deal btw

DVD format is far superior is you're travelling if for only one reason- space. You can carry so many more discs. Additionally, you can delete scenes on the spot.

I have the DC95 version and am very pleased. And contrary to what you might have read, the battery lasts much much longer than 20 mins. That's just absurd whoever came up with that (maybe a faulty battery).

It compares very well to my much more expensive sony version. And last, it is very small and the built in lens cover makes it very easy to keep dust free.

Build quality is excellent since it is also made in Japan.

Editing can easily be done. There are also plenty of aftermarket programs out there to help.

Yes you can (amazon for instance), but at present they are more costly. They start at the 60 min range. You can however get 60 mins out of a regular disc in LP mode and I haven't really noticed much of a loss in quality.

Thanks mate rep given :thumbsup:

The phrase "cheap & cheerful" sums this camcorder up perfectly. Don't buy it if you've any need for quality recordings that you intend to edit. Recording to mpeg2 (i.e direct to DVD) is far more lossy than the DV25 algorithm employed by the MiniDV format. Even though you may ultimately have DVD as you final output medium, the initial capture will generate material that is of a higher quality for production mastering purposes. Not canon's worst but merely acceptable. Voted hot at this price though.
