Canon DC201 Camcorder Review

 

The Canon DC201 is a dedicated DVD camcorder that puts the power of direct-to-DVD recording into the palm of your hand. Powerful optics and simple controls deliver widescreen moviemaking with ease.

The DIGIC DV II, the powerful processing chip found inside the Canon DC201, was created for Canon’s prestigious HD camcorder range. It delivers super-fast camera responses, vivid colours, crystal-clear images and sophisticated noise reduction.

Canon DC201

 

DVD camcorders often surprise us. We have never made any secret of thinking the format has some unresolved issues. Yet the cams themselves have proved popular with the buying public and often confound our expectations with their quality

Only suitable for entry-level users, Limited digital outputs

An affordable entry-level camcorder that will be ideal for simple point-and-shoot work like holidays and special occasions
