  • Very good video quality. Decent 4-megapixel stills. Variety of special modes and features for both stills and video.
  • Significant shutter lag in auto mode. Video has a slight color cast. Reviewing still images is slow.
  • Although performance needs to improve, the Canon DC40 is one of the first miniDVD camcorders to let you shoot decent stills....

  • Ergonomics, excellent range of presets and exposure options, manual focus, aperture, white balance. High quality Canon lens with large 4 megapixel image sensor.
  • Lens not wide enough for normal use, movement artefacts especially when edited and recompressed, extremely slow MPEG2 encoding.
  • As with the Canon DC10 reviewed last year, the DC40 is ergonomically very good. The circular DVD imposes a naturally comfortable shape to the camera and most of the controls fall easily beneath your thumb or fingers. It?s wise to ensure the hand grip s...
