Which review: 42% - summary ...

This is something of a halfway house between the Canon DC310 and DC330 in price and performance. The DC320 is a fairly basic standard-definition camcorder that records directly to a built-in DVD writer.

As with its sister-models, the DC320 is bulky in shape in order to accommodate the DVD writer, which takes 8cm discs. It’s uncomfortable to handle, and heavy at 430g. It is quite slim, but portability is an issue.

There is a 37x optical zoom, but image quality is less than impressive, even in bright daylight. Colours are over-saturated, with subtler shades lost, and images could be sharper.

Pros: 37x optical zoom, good autofocus system, improved image stabiliser

Cons: Heavy and uncomfortable, poor colour reproduction, bad start-up time

This is a better … This is a better deal.http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/314887/canon-md-110-mini-dv-camcorder-84-5



Thats a Mini DV camcorder this DVD, you cant really compare the 2

Tesco are doing a SONY DVD / Pro Duo mem stick Hybrid camcorder for about the same price so I am sitting on the fence with this one

there are quite a few 1080i dvd camcorders for not much more big increase in quality and the recording time only slightly less worththe extra cost imo

Why not? What difference does the media make? It's the features, image quality, ease of use and price which most people care about. DVD has the advantage of being easy to transfer to PC or DVD player but most people won't care if they can easily transfer the image to a PC.

A camera is a camera it takes pictures or you make a video with it. You dont need to spend lots of money on a camera when they do exactly the same thing. I cant understand people who go out and spend £100s of pounds on things when they can get it for less if they look about. More fool them I say.

Too true - it's easy to burn what you want to keep to a DVD from a PC. Given a choice of a camera with a DVD in or something smaller like an SD card, I'd go for the SD card route.

I wouldnt buy one of these ive got a dc19 which is a canon dvd camcorder ... its in getting repaired at the moment ... i think dvd camcorders are basically flawed, they have to to compress the video on the fly to get size down ... i bought mine because of the practiality of straight on to dvd but i think if you can use a computer mini dv is the best choice ... just do your editting on the computer instead ... the initialized disc produced off these things have done nothing but freeze and stick for me ... and ive ended up messing around on my laptop anyway ...

I keep looking at the Camcorder deals as my old DV machine is on it's last legs - the biggest problem I have with DV, is it's too easy for someone to rewind the tape to see whats just been shot - and then forget to cue it back up to the blank bit.

2 or 3 times now we've lost really good footage of the kids after this has happened - unless modern machines have some form of recorded foortage protection nowadays?.

I was going to get a DVD one thinking this would solve the problem, but having spent hours repairing an unfinalised disc from a friends DVD camcorder (it was a basic one that had no DV out socket to allow capture / editing on a PC), and seeing how much poorer the quality of recording was - I realised that it's not a good compromise.

I guess the only solution is to go to a HDD / flash media model - unless someone can put me straight on my perceived issues?.
