Check out a more recent Canon model. Here's what we had to say about the DC40 when it was released in March 2006:
The compact Canon DC40 offers direct-to-DVD recording for simple, effortless video viewing. Just record, pop it in the DVD player, and you're ready to go. No more tangles of A/V cables from your camcorder to your TV, and no clunky cassette adapters to make it work in your VCR. With a double-sided 8cm recordable DVD, you can capture up to 120 minutes of footage and have it ready for immediate watching or quick and easy editing on your home computer.
