    The Canon DC50 Digital Camcorder

    (Page 1 of 4 )

    One of the new standard format recorders is the Canon DC50, which was released earlier this year. The DC50 is a camcorder with 10x optical zoom, optical image stabilization, straight to DVD recording, 5 megapixel still-shot capabilities, 16:9 recording format (wide screen), and more. Keep reading for the full review.

    In today's digital camcorder market, most manufacturers are switching to HD video for their upcoming models. This makes a lot of sense considering so many people are switching from standard definition TVs to high definition TVs. If you have an HD TV, of course you'll want to view your home videos in HD format.

    However, there are still some people out there who haven't made the leap to HD yet, and this is the main reason that some camcorder manufacturers are still producing models that record standard format video and not HD video.

    The price of the DC50 at launch was about $799. Today, the price has dropped drastically to a much more affordable $500. The increasing popularity of HD camcorders has been good for standard definition consumers, because it has helped to lower the price. Right now is a great time to pick up a high quality standard definition camcorder at a great price. The Canon DC50 is Canon's top-of-the-line model, and it shows in the good performance and exceptional video quality. I think that it really comes down to a question of "HD or not HD?"
