Canon DC310


An easy to use, budget DVD camcorder

Solid video performance for the asking price, 41x optical zoom, strong build quality

Limited connectivity options, no optical image stabiliser, memory card slot does not record video

The DC310 is a solid DVD offering let down by the limitations of its format. Casual users who want quick access to their home movies will be quite satisfied. Everyone else, on the other hand, should stick to flash memory or MiniDV.

Good Camcorder

I am really liking this camcorder!

This is really a nice Camcorder. I recorded using a DVD and a SDHC memory card tonight. The playback was outstanding! Crystal clear on my TV. It was a lot better than I expected.

Come with a manual, but I wish they had a quick start guide.

Great Camera


Great Camera it supports DVD's and SDHC this think has crystal clear images too. It can actually take stills too

Hmmm. Would be nice if the camera didnt have to be plugged in to finalize the disc (or a fresh batt)

Good first DVD camcorder!


This is my first DVD camcorder, we had another (Canon) camcorder that used the mini cassettes and this was our step up. I like the fact that you can record right onto a DVD. You can only play them in certain players though (they are mini DVD's.) I...
