Convenience remains DVD camcorders’ greatest strength: you can simply record your footage, then play discs back in a standard DVD player. DVD recording capacities vary, but camcorders using Dual Layer technology (such as Canon’s new DVD Camcorder DC210 or DVD Camcorder DC50) can record up to 108 minutes on a single DL disc.

It’s even possible to edit your footage in the camera – delete or divide scenes, or create playlists of your favourites. Also, like MiniDV models, DVD camcorders often come with onboard effects such as sepia tones or visual fades. This makes them ideal for those who wish to enhance their videos without editing software.

High Definition Video (HDV) is the most established format for HD moviemaking at home.  As with MiniDV, footage is captured to tape but at a far higher resolution – resulting in superior image clarity, depth and detail. On models such as the HD Camcorder HV10 and new HD Camcorder HV20, Canon’s HD CMOS video sensor captures images in true 1920x1080 pixel resolution – the same picture size as the best High Definition TVs. Standard Definition recording is also possible. Of all consumer HD formats, HDV is the most convenient for post-shoot editing on a computer.

HD recording requires the most complex technology and highest quality components.  As such, HDV camcorders tend to have a large number of features and options.  Besides USB and FireWire, some include HDMI connectivity for single-cable audio-visual connection to TV – along with all the standard functions found on MiniDV and DVD models.
