This camcorder is ancient by gadget standards. Why don't you take a look at some more recent Canon models? Here's what we had to say about the DC230 when it was released in February 2007:
Canon's DC230 camcorder allows users to record their memories directly to DVD, bypassing unreliable tapes for a final product that is easy to watch and share with others.
