Summary: Did a lot of homework on which type and which model of camcorder to go for. Reviews saying 'don't buy a disc camcorder under any circumstances' and many other put-downs. Well it's obvious really, it's horses for courses, as they say.
the mini-dvds shown do NOT work with this camcorder

Summary: I don't know why amazon includes the sony mini-dvds on this page, because they do NOT work with this camera! I ordered them based on amazon's recommendation and they are not compatible. I'm having a tough time finding a mini dvd-rw that will work with the camera. Otherwise, it is ok.
do not buy dvd+rw for canon dc330, they dont work with this camcorder.

Summary: This is an amazing camera. I don't know the picture quality of an HD camcorder, but in comparison this camera is an excellent buy for the price. Perhaps I'll buy an HD in a few years when the price drops.
Summary: Of course there are going to be items that do not work. However I have NEVER in 20 years plus of buying new electronic items had one that was dead on arrival. This unit the disc door never opened. Simply did not open. The video screen kept saying warning the door is open..
Summary: I love This Camcorder! I like the size of it,Easy to use not complicated,Great features, Came as said it was online,Nothing missing in the box it was complete,A couple of very tiny scratches on it not very noticable unless you are looking for them who really cares for the price I paid for it,GREAT...
Summary: Just purchased the DC330 camcorder in late July 2008. I must say the video is very clear and the colors saturated. The most impressive thing to me was the zoom. It's incredible! I video recorded my kids when they were getting surfing lessons. I was probably 30 yards from them.
