The DC19 is very slim and light.

Canon DC19 Camcorder Review


Lightweight design and a range of powerful Canon optics mean that the Canon DC19 DVD camcorder delivers stunning performance into a handheld form. Direct to DVD recording and USB 2.0 connectivity makes it easy to share your movies with everyone.

PictBridge offers direct one-touch printing from the Canon DC19 when attached to a compatible printer.

Canon DC19 DVD Camcorder


A camcorder that records direct to 8cm (mini) DVD's and can also record still images to an SD card. Could this be the best of both worlds?

It is small and weights only around 450grams. The dimensions are a maximum of 12x10x4.5cm. The optical zoom is 10x (a lot less than some) and a standard DVD-R disc can record around 30minutes of action. The battery is said to last for around 80minutes...

Product Specifications

The small but powerful 2.2MP DC19 is an easy-to-use DVD camcorder with a 10x optical zoom and widescreen mode. With DVD-R Dual Layer support, up to 110 minutes of video can fit onto one disc. The DC19 has a 2.2MP CCD with an RGB Primary Color Filter. Movies are recorded straight to DVD (-R/-RW/-R Dual Layer) with vivid true-to-life colors, just as you remember them. Simply finalize a disc in-camera and transfer it to a home DVD player for easy viewing. The compact styling of the DC19 provides easy operation using just one hand. Controls are grouped together at the back of the camcorder, allowing easy access to the majority of important functions. Part of Canon's second generation DVD line-up, the DC19 is compatible with a wider range of formats. DVD-R Dual Layer offers greater capacity and makes longer recording times possible: 36 minutes of video at best quality, 54 minutes at standard quality and an impressive 108 minutes at the most efficient setting. The DC19 has a 2.7" widescreen LCD, allowing you to see exactly what you record in true 16: 9 format. A horizontal level marker helps you to frame the perfect shot on the LCD. Anti-glare coating means that the screen remains visible even in direct sunlight. The DC19's precision 10x optical zoom lens delivers astonishingly crisp images, helping you to get closer to the action. The Electronic Image Stabilizer uses advanced Canon technology to stabilize the image and reduce camera shake, even at maximum zoom. Dolby Digital offers superior quality sound recording: the DC19's audio matches the superb quality of its image capture. With Canon's DIGIC DV image processor, the DC19 captures high-resolution movies that are amazingly true to life. Split path processing for separate video and still signals allows you to record photos to miniSD card at the same time as a movie is recorded to DVD. Advanced digital photography functions, with photo capture to miniSD card or DVD, make the DC19 a powerful combined camcorder and digital still camera. A white LED mini video light allows close subjects to be shot in color even in low light conditions. A built-in flash for digital photography is also provided.
