Canon DC50

 

If DVD is the recording media for you, then this camcorder should fit the bill.

The DC50 is the most expensive standard-definition camcorder here.

Canon DC50 DVD camcorder

 

The Canon DC50 is a stylish Mini DVD recorder, with all the bells and whistles you'd expect from a Canon camcorder.

The Canon DC50 is a poor choice for a technology-challenged user, but for someone with experience shooting video, the Canon DC50's image quality and many custom settings more than outweigh its slightly awkward controls.

Canon DC50 Camcorder Review

 

Harnessing powerful optical technology from the Canon HD camcorder range and delivering the convenience of DVD recording, the Canon DC50 DVD digital camcorder provides the versatility to capture great pictures and movies wherever you go.

PictBridge lets you connect to a compatible printing device and produce high quality photographic prints with ease.

Canon DC50 review: Canon DC50

 

Canon DC50

Very robust still-photo mode; good video quality; features both video light and flash.

Pricey for a standard-def camcorder, uses miniSD instead of SD cards.

If you can get past the DC50's sticker shock, you'll find a very nice, simple DVD camcorder that can produce some surprisingly good snapshots.

Canon DC50 Mini DVD Camcorder

 

If you already own a Canon digital camera, you'll feel right at home with the company's DC50 camcorder ($720 as of April 24, 2007), thanks to the similar control systems. If you're unfamiliar with Canon cameras, you may find the DC50 a bit intimidating...

Top-notch image quality ; Optical image stabilization

Some controls are awkward to use

Canon DC50 Camcorder Review

 

As high definition camcorders are churned out with alarming speed, those content with standard definition will be pleased with the market effect: ever-falling prices for yesterday's state-of-the-art. The Canon DC50 ($799 MSRP) is a hundred dollars...

Canon has given us their top standard definition DVD model for 2007, and it's…OK. The handling is a bit off thanks to its thin, cheap, plastic hand strap and awkward finger placement. We did like the rear-mounted joystick and broad range of still...

Canon DC50 First Impressions Camcorder Review

 

The Canon DC50 represents a small, historic moment, as it represents not only the top DVD camcorder for 2007, but also as the flagship model for the entire consumer line. With MiniDV quickly ebbing, and little hope of the Optura line making a comeback,...

The Canon DC50 is a great camcorder. Canon clearly spent a lot of time researching the weak points of the DC40 and improving upon them. The button placement is less cluttered and the menus have been improved. The performance, which was good to begin...

Canon DC50

 

For a company developing some of the best camcorders on the market, the Canon DC50 is a bit of a letdown. It's not that the camcorder doesn't deliver great looking video, but at an MSRP of $800, more is expected. The DC50 is Canon's top standard...
