Wow, if it can be got for that price it really is a bargain. I'd be surprised if they'll honour it TBH but it's got to be worth a punt at that price. Some of the other 'incrediable' deals on that page are nothing of the sort, the 40D Body Only price is exactly the same as I paid for it 6 weeks ago.

Just called to check the price and no-one replied.

I bought one of these last week from the web when the price came down to £200 and they honoured that (it just arrived). I also got the Canon bag for an additional £15. The Canon bag is great but quite big. Good if you have a lot of photo kit though. Haven't had a chance to try it out yet as I didn't order any disks - they are cheaper from Agros.

£50 cashback at Canon as well:

Ignore - flash cams only - thanks twinkle

I have just spoken to them and they are not selling this for £189.99!! It is £249. and they are not giving the 'Canon Deluxe Gadget Bag 10EG' bag for free either. Sorry to be a party pooper

This is still a good price though if Amazon is anything to go by. Does anyone know of a better price than £249?

The DC22 DVD Camcorder shows as £189.99 on your pasted link not the HR10...unless it's changed?

That's for flash cams only i.e. HF models
#10
My guess is they have corrected it.
banned#11
Yep, they've changed it. Ho hum.

Probably , because if you take the 'what you save' from 'original price' you get £189.99:whistling:
#13
Doesn't apply mate as this is NOT a flash camcorder.
#14
Okay, I've corrected the original post to reflect the correct price.
It's still a good price though - most places are £400 or more and you can still get the camera bag for an extra £15.

Just ordered:

Canon HR10
5 * DOUBLE layer disks (Double layer a must on DVD based Hi Def Camcorders as Single layer only gives you 15mins)
Canon Delux Bag

£219.98 inc VAT and Delivery :)

This is a very high quality camcorder sharing many of the components of the award winning Canon HV20/HV30. While I would prefer the Mini DV tape based HV20 the £500 price difference will more than make up for the compromise!

Absolute bargain, this lot would be £500 at Argos! And that's currently the cheapest alternative that I can find, lots of other sites want £500+ just for the camcorder.

Voted HOT even though the Sales guy said there were only two left!!!!
#16
Is this 1080i or 1080p?

> tollyman
how did you get the following for £219.98 inc VAT and Delivery????

Canon HR10
5 * DOUBLE layer disks (Double layer a must on DVD based Hi Def Camcorders as Single layer only gives you 15mins)
Canon Delux Bag

does it involve the £50 canon cashback which im not 100% if this is part of?
#18
I asked for the HR10 that I'd seen advertised at 189.99, he didn't question the price & said that they could also offer a bag & disks bundle for £30 if I was interested (I was!).

No cashback or quidco needed.

One left after my order, he said they had sold loads today!

1080i

thanks for the reply - im gonna try in the morning, not sure about my chances though....

Surely you will strugle playing the hd dvds on a normal dvd player?
#22
They won't play directly on a DVD player.

The same can be said of Hi Def Mini DV & SD & Hard Disk formats.

However you can:-

Play them on a Blu Ray player
Play them on a PC
Play them directly from the Camera to your TV via HDMI
Edit them in Video Editing software and burn them into any format you like.

The same can be said of Mini DV & SD & Hard Disk formats.

no joy - was quoted the current web price of £249 :(

DVD is the storage media but doesn't mean it's the video standard! DVD-Video is only 720 x 576 so doesn't support HD content.

It uses the AVCHD codec and as already stated, can play back content via a HDMI cable to your TV or PC for video editing.

Voted hot - haven't seen this cheaper anywhere else.

those dvds will fill up very quick

Absolutely. They need to move to Blu-ray discs to improve capacity although with the price of flash memory steadily coming down I’d rather pay the premium and avoid optical discs all together. Still, it’s a good price if you have large pockets for all the discs. :w00t:

You're not going to see 8cm Blu-Ray any time soon IMHO. Fitting a 120GB 1.8 or 2.5" would be a much better solution to the problem. I'm really surprised that they didn't go this route initially.

A hyrbrid camera is a much better idea

Either a dvd camcorder with ahrd drive
or a hard drive camera with flash memory

Hitachi released a Camcorder which supports 8cm Blu-ray discs last year – Camcorderinfo.

Canon also have a camcorder with about 30GB of built-in flash memory which also takes SDHC cards. They’ve increased the maximum bit rate to 25Mbs so you can get about 3 hours on the internal memory. I think this is going to become the normal format as the reduced weight and size and the higher reliability of flash memory is very compelling. Most people can live with 3 hours so wouldn’t even need extra memory and the price of cards is so cheap that it’s becoming less of an issue week by week.
That would be my first choice of format for an AVHCD camcorder.

Indeed I don't think this Format for Hi Def would be many peoples first choice however at this sort of price range this will be a lot of peoples only choice.

I'd love the Canon HV20 or HV30 but at £600 minimum it just isn't in my price range. With an almost identical specification (apart from 12/15mps difference) the £400 saving is amazing.

I can live with the 30mins (dual layer disk) record time as opposed to 60mins on a tape.
#33
it's a shame it can only record 1,440 x 1,080

Is this 1080i or 1080p?


That's what I was wondering :thinking:
#35
BTW, this camcorder supports MiniSD, so no need for all those discs!!

Someone already stated it was 1080i - I found a review on it here:

http://www.itreviews.co.uk/hardware/h1550.htm

Apparently it captures at 1920 x 1080 then converts to 1440 x 1080i when encoding..

But this for this price it’s hard to complain really. There’s a comprehensive review at Camcorderinfo.

good deal i guess, not worth getting a hd camcorder with dvd discs, better to get a 30gb+ harddrive that also accepts flash memory as additional storage. The camcorders will be alot smaller too as not needing to contain space for a disc.
