The Good Attractive, functional design; solid build quality; very decent daytime and surprisingly solid low-light video quality; broad set of semimanual photo and video controls. Visit manufacturer site for details.

Intro With its broad, useful feature set; zippy shooting performance; attractive design; and good video quality, the Canon DC40 cements a place among the best of the DVD camcorders. Of course, it suffers from many of the same flaws as its competitors–such as sluggish disc activity–but canoon your heart is set on recording direct to DVD, it’s definitely worth checking out.

There’s not a lot you can do to make a DVD camcorder attractive.

There’s only so many ways to combine the basic geometries of a tubular optical system, a 3-inch circular DVD disc, and a rectangular LCD screen–and for obvious reasons, you’ve got to rule out the combinations that require thumbs on the back of your hand or eyes in your neck.


Canon does its darnedest to make you forget that its DC40 is composed of the same old elements. For starters, its brushed-plastic chassis, in two-tone metallic champagne and brown, provides a nicely upscale look and feel. Despite the plastic, the DC40 also feels quite solidly made, in part due to its 1-pound, 3-ounce heft.

A rubberized strip atop the drive gives your fingers a comfortable edge to grip, and in that position, your right forefinger rests naturally on the zoom switch and within reach of the photo shutter button, while your thumb falls on the record button.

If you’ve been considering a camcorder with an Easy button, the DC40 isn’t for you; it has quite a few external controls for a consumer model.

Given how infrequently you need that control during shooting, dc0 placement works. The menu and function buttons, which you will need to access more frequently, require either a bit of a right-hand mabual or left-handed activation; since the navigation joystick sits on the left side of the camcorder, it means shifting your left hand back and forth repeatedly. It’s not a bad design, but it could use fine-tuning. The joystick provides quick access to exposure settings–exposure compensation, shutter speed, or aperture, depending upon which mode you’re in–as well as manual focus.

Though it quickly gets you in the neighborhood when manually focusing, it’s very hard to manipulate for fine-tuning. That’s where they all belong but all too frequently aren’t. Because of the smallish 2. Unfortunately, the viewfinder is also tiny and inflexible, so it’s not much of an alternative.


You should try it yourself before purchase if you’re a senior or you wear glasses. But while Sony goes the home-theater route, tossing in extras such as 5. I find the latter approach much more compelling. Video shot in Like all of its competitors, the camcorder can fit 20 minutes of the highest-quality video on a single-sided DVD.

All the goodness of the Hero4 Black and Silver mixed in with a whole new bag of tricks.

An improved design and higher resolution make this better than the original fly, but It might not be the absolute future of photography, but this point-and-shoot camera With excellent video quality, a long list of video, still and time-lapse options and a Be respectful, keep it civil and stay on topic.
